Vegetable Fried Rice

Vegetable fried rice is a colourful dish to serve along side many different versions of chicken fingers. The key to getting the rice to crisp up is frying it cold from the fridge.

Lentil Barley Soup

As the weather gets colder keep this recipe on hand for those nights no one wants to go out.  You can easily have the ingredients on hand for this recipe.  Serve it along side a crusty loaf and you have the perfect, no need to go shopping, meal.

Vegetable Quinoa Salad

Quinoa is that super grain with lots of protein that keeps well in the refrigerator.  When I make this salad I usually double the recipe so that after we enjoy it with dinner then I can have it for lunch during the week.  In the summer this salad goes well along along side one of your barbeque favourites.

Beef & Turkey Meatballs

Meatball Quinoa Soup, Meatballs in your favourite sauce on pasta and Meatball Subs in a marinara sauce are 3 meal ideas. If kids are doing this recipe I would suggest only 1 recipe split between 2 or 3 families so the kids don't get overwhelmed by the rolling involved. Feel free to adjust the mixture of ground meats - all beef, all turkey or a mixture of beef and pork are also delicous.

Chicken Fried Rice

This recipe is much healthier than a take-out option. Pack it with vegetables you happen to have in your fridge of freezer. Any protein will work – leftover chicken, pork, steak, shrimp or even tofu. Here I have suggested some ingredient options but this recipe is very flexible.  You can even stir fry leftover quinoa.
