Olive Oil or Canola Oil…..

Use olive or canola oil. Research has shown that the use of olive oil is linked to a lower risk for obesity and cardiovascular problems. If olive oil seems too expensive or you don’t like the taste, canola oil can be a good second choice. Canola oil does contain some healthy omega 3 oils and has been shown to reduce cholesterol levels. It is a low-flavor, healthier alternative to corn, soy or vegetable oil and animal fats like butter.

“Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week – ZUCCHINI ROLL-UPS WITH ROASTED RED PEPPER AND FETA CHEESE

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s “Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week is ZUCCHINI ROLL-UPS WITH ROASTED RED PEPPER AND FETA CHEESE. To make this week’s Dish you’ll be needing Zucchini, Bell Peppers, Canola Oil, Crumbled Feta Cheese, Lemon Juice, Ground Black Pepper, Arugula, and Basil Leaves. So you can find this Diabetic Friendly recipe and more all at the Diabetic Gourmet Magazine website.

ZUCCHINI ROLL-UPS WITH ROASTED RED PEPPER AND FETA CHEESE

Ingredients

5 medium zucchini (about 8 oz/250 g each), cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch (0.6-cm) slices*
1 red, orange or yellow bell pepper, cut in half and seeded
1/2 medium red bell pepper, roasted and peeled, or use jarred*
2 Tbsp canola oil (30 mL)
1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese (75 mL)
1 Tbsp lemon juice (15 mL)
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste (0.5 mL)
2 cups baby arugula leaves (2 oz/500 mL lightly packed) (60 g)
1/3 cup lightly packed fresh basil leaves (75 mL)
toothpicks

Directions

1 – Preheat grill or grill pan over medium heat.
2 – Set aside outermost slices of zucchini for another use. Brush inner slices of zucchini and bell pepper halves with canola oil on both sides. Grill until just tender, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from grill to cool and slice pepper halves into thin strips. Zucchini and pepper may be made day ahead and stored in airtight container in refrigerator.
3 – In small bowl of food processor or mini-processor, place roasted red pepper, feta cheese and lemon juice. Process until mixture reaches spreadable consistency. It will not become completely smooth. Stir in black pepper.
4 – Spread about 3/4 tsp (4 mL) of feta mixture onto zucchini slice. Place a few slices of bell pepper about 1/2 inch (1.25 cm) from end of zucchini slice, along with a few arugula leaves and one small or half of large basil leaf. Roll up and insert toothpick to hold roll. Repeat with rest of zucchini slices.
5 – Serve immediately or store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to one day. Allow to come to room temperature before serving.
* Tips: Five medium zucchini yields just the right number of slices. Buy an extra zucchini if you would like to have some room for error. You can use jarred roasted red pepper instead of preparing your own but be sure to rinse and drain it really well to avoid extra liquid in the spread.

NOTES:
Tender, grilled zucchini makes a delicious wrapper for crisp, colorful vegetables, fresh herbs and a creamy feta spread – all rolled into beautiful, bite-sized bundles. It is a true veggie celebration with grilled, roasted and fresh produce in each mouthwatering bite.

Shrimp Fajita Salad
Perfect for a light summer lunch al fresco, this dish is ready in under 25 minutes!

Ingredients
Preparation time: 12 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes.

1 medium red bell pepper (2–3 inches in diameter)
1 medium green bell pepper (2–3 inches in diameter)
1 medium onion (2–3 inches in diameter)
Nonstick cooking spray
1 teaspoon canola oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 pound cooked, peeled shrimp (50 count/pound)
¼ cup prepared salsa (mild or hot)
Juice of 1 lime
4 cups sliced iceberg lettuce
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
16 baked bite-size tortilla chips (use gluten-free corn chips for a gluten-free dish)
1 tablespoon hot salsa (optional)

Directions
Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: 1 cup lettuce, 1 cup shrimp mixture

1 – Remove stems, seeds, and cores of the red and green peppers. Cut each into long thin strips. Peel onion, remove ends, and cut in half. Quarter onion and slice into thin pieces, separating them. Spray a large skillet with a thick layer of nonstick cooking spray, and heat over medium-high heat. Add canola oil and garlic. Sauté quickly, then add peppers and onions, stirring frequently. Once the peppers are beginning to soften, add shrimp, salsa, and lime juice. Stir rapidly to heat ingredients evenly, about a minute. Remove mixture from heat. Spread 1 cup sliced lettuce on each of four shallow salad bowls or plates. Place ¼ of the shrimp mixture on each of the lettuce beds. Distribute cilantro equally on tops of each salad. Crush the tortilla chips in a small plastic bag with your hands to make irregularly sized crumbs. Sprinkle chip crumbs on top of each salad. Garnish each serving with a dab of hot salsa, if desired, and serve.
