Curry-Cashew Turkey Salad Sandwiches
Hot curry powder (sometimes labeled as Madras curry powder) gives this healthy sandwich a kick. For a mellower flavor, you can use regular or mild curry powder in its place…………………….

Shrimp and Pepper Kebabs with Grilled Red Onion Slaw
These healthy grilled shrimp and mini bell pepper kebabs come together in just 30 minutes, so they’re great for weeknight dinners. A bag of coleslaw mix is a time-saving meal starter. Here, we make it our own by mixing in grilled red onion and crushed pita chips. A homemade herb-feta dressing both coats the slaw and sauces the kebabs……………………

Ratatouille Dip
Ratatouille is normally served as a main dish but here it’s served with pita chips and enjoyed as an appetizer. It’s made in the slow cooker so if you’re serving it at a party just leave it in the cooker on warm while your guests dig in!……………………………….

Grilled Greek Chicken Salad
This Greek-inspired, main-dish chicken salad is enhanced with feta cheese, tomatoes and kalamata olives and served with a low-fat cucumber dressing………

Grilled Chicken Ratatouille
We gave this classic Provençal dish a taste of summer by grilling the vegetables traditionally used in ratatouille (bell pepper, eggplant, zucchini, tomato). Topped with grilled chicken, it makes an easy main course for summer entertaining. We like fresh marjoram and basil to complement the flavors, but any fresh herb will work. Serve with polenta and a glass of Pinot Noir………………

Jerk Chicken Breast
The chicken in this low-calorie dinner is brushed with lemon juice and sprinkled with a garlic, jerk and thyme seasoning mixture. You can save time by substituting 4 teaspoons of bottled minced garlic for the cloves in the rub. The recipe calls for an indoor electric grill but we also show instructions for broiling and outside grilling……………

Chicken Fajita Kebabs
These grilled kebabs have all the makings of a classic fajita—seasoned chicken, onions and peppers. Warm a stack of tortillas in a foil packet on the side of the grill to turn the kebabs into an easy fajita dinner. Or serve with lime-and-cilantro coleslaw for a grain-free alternative…….

All-American BBQ Chicken Breast
In this healthy chicken breast recipe, bottled barbecue sauce—often loaded with sodium and high-fructose corn syrup—is replaced with a homemade barbecue sauce recipe. Use the barbecue sauce to baste the chicken breast while cooking—but if you want to also serve the barbecue sauce at the table, separate some before grilling to avoid cross-contamination…….

Ancho Chicken Breast with Black Beans, Bell Peppers and Scallions
In this healthy chicken recipe, the meat is rubbed with ancho chile powder, a spice made from dried poblano peppers. It adds mild heat and subtle smokiness to the rub on the chicken, but you can use regular chili powder here instead. This recipe makes an extra ½ cup of the black bean mash—try it wrapped into a burrito for lunch or as a taco filling……..

“Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week – Grilled Idaho Potato Ratatouille Salad

March 28, 2016 at 5:15 AM | Posted in CooksRecipes, Meatless Monday | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s Meatless Monday recipe is a Grilled Idaho Potato Ratatouille Salad. Kicked up Potato Salad! Potatoes, Eggplant, and Zucchni are all part of the recipe! You can find this recipe along with all the other healthy and delicious recipes on the CooksRecipes website! Enjoy! http://www.cooksrecipes.com/index.html

 
Grilled Idaho Potato Ratatouille Salad

Potato salad takes on the delicious character of the classic French eggplant vegetable stew, ratatouille. This grilled potato and vegetable salad is ideally served warm or at room temperature.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 pounds large Idaho PotatoesCooksrecipes 2
1 medium eggplant
1 medium zucchini
2 medium yellow squash
4 portobello mushrooms, stems removed
1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
4 plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise
4 onions, peeled and halved from top to bottom
2 heads of garlic (optional)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves or snipped chives (optional)

 

Cooking Directions:

1 – Wash and dry all vegetables except for onions. Cut potatoes into 1-inch thick lengthwise wedges. Steam wedges on a rack over boiling water (covered) for 10 minutes to pre-cook potatoes. Remove potatoes from steam and pat dry with paper towels.
2 – Prepare remaining vegetables: cut eggplant lengthwise into 1-inch thick slices; cut zucchini and yellow squash in half lengthwise; seed and quarter green and red peppers. Place potatoes and all other vegetables on baking sheets and brush with olive oil to prevent sticking during grilling. Prepare grill.
3 – When grill is ready, lightly oil the grill tray. Place eggplant, squash and mushrooms on the grill crosswise so they don’t fall through the grill tray.
4 – Place the tomatoes and the peppers in a wire grilling basket or on a grilling tray suitable for small foods so they don’t fall through into the grill.
5 – Place garlic heads directly on grill.
6 – With the grill lid closed, grill all vegetables for 5 minutes. With tongs and a metal spatula, turn the vegetables and grill the other side, with the lid closed, for another 5-6 minutes. If all vegetables don’t fit on the grill, cook in batches.
7 – When vegetables are cooked, arrange on a large serving platter (slice portobello mushrooms if they’re large). Halve the grilled heads of garlic crosswise, and squeeze out the soft pulp into a small bowl. Whisk together the balsamic vinegar and the garlic, then pour over the vegetables.
8 – If not using garlic, just drizzle vinegar over vegetables. Sprinkle vegetables with the fresh thyme leaves or chives, if desired.
9 – Serve salad warm or at “picnic” temperature no need to chill.
Makes 8 servings.

It’s a Classic Ratatouille for this week’s “Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week. It’s from the PBS website. http://www.pbs.org/food/recipes/

 
Classic RatatouillePBS3

Ingredients
About ½ cup olive oil
1 eggplant (1¼ pounds); ends cut off, washed and cut, with skin on, into 1-inch cubes (about 4 cups)
3 medium zucchini (about 1 ¼ pounds, washed, ends removed, cut in 1-inch cubes (about 3 cups)
12 ounces onions (2-3 depending on size), cut into 1-inch cubes
1 pound green bell peppers (2–3,) washed, seeded, and cut into 1-inch squares (about 3 cups)
4–5 well-ripened tomatoes; peeled, halved, seeded and coarsely cubed (about 4 cups)
5–6 cloves garlic; peeled, crushed, and very finely chopped (about 1 tablespoon)
½ cup water
2 teaspoons salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

 
Directions
1 – Heat ¼ cup of the oil in one or, better, two large skillets.
2 – First sauté the eggplant cubes, about 8 minutes; remove with slotted spoon and transfer to a large, heavy flameproof casserole. (The eggplant will absorb more oil while cooking than the other vegetables.)
3 – Then sauté the zucchini cubes until browned, about 8 minutes. Then transfer to the casserole.
4 – Add about ¼ cup more oil to the pan and sauté the onions and peppers together for about 6 minutes. Add them to the casserole.
5 – Add the tomatoes, garlic, water, salt, and pepper to the casserole and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat, cover, and cook over low heat for 1 hour.
6 – Remove the cover, increase the heat to medium, and cook another 20 minutes, uncovered, to reduce some of the liquid; stir once in a while to prevent scorching.
7 – Let the ratatouille rest for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Recipes Fresh from the Farmers’ Market

 

Use the season’s bounty in these healthy recipes.
Summer is the season to take advantage of your local farmers’ market. Are you inspired by the piles of colorful, juicy tomatoes, fresh ears of sweet corn and shiny peppers in every color of the rainbow? Trade in your plain corn on the cob and tossed salad for these recipes that showcase your healthy haul in all its fragrant, colorful glory.

 
Bean & Tomato Salad with Honey Vinaigrette
This beautiful salad combines fresh tomatoes, green beans, red onions and dried heirloom beans. Recently harvested beans (and thus freshly dried) cook more quickly than the kind you buy year-round at the market. In the latter part of the summer, farmers’ markets begin to sell a fresh crop of heirloom varieties that would be perfect for this salad….

 
Grilled Chicken Ratatouille
We gave this classic Provençal dish a taste of summer by grilling the vegetables traditionally used in ratatouille (bell pepper, eggplant, zucchini, tomato). Topped with grilled chicken, it makes an easy main course for summer entertaining. We like fresh marjoram and basil to complement the flavors, but any fresh herb will work. Serve with polenta and a glass of Pinot Noir.
