Salmon Topped with Beans and Vegetables
"I've made this salmon recipe for years and am not even sure where it came from. What I love is that it's full of healthy ingredients, has lots of fibre and is relatively low in both fat and calories." —Rhonda McNeill, Newmarket, Ont.
"I love to cook, and am always trying new recipes. 'Aromatic Chicken' is one I've been making for years now. It's full of flavour, fragrant, quick to throw together and colourful." —Rose Ardanaz, Langley, B.C.
Vegetable Casserole with Crunchy Bread Topping
"This recipe is fast and easy to make, so don't be scared off by the long ingredient list. I use frozen vegetables to cut down on time, but it can easily be modified to use seasonal ingredients." —Harpreet Dhanoya, Toronto
Vegetarian Quinoa Stew
"I learned this yummy quinoa stew recipe from my best friend's mom. It's one of my favourites because it's high in protein, low in fat—and easy to make." —Alida Abbott, Kitchener, Ont.
Stuffed Mushroom Caps
"This recipe was given to me by my sister, and one of us makes it for almost every family event. These mushrooms are always a hit!" —Kelli Brost, Medicine Hat, Alta.
Easy Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken
"A friend cooked this delicious chicken dish for a dinner party several years ago, and I have adapted it to suit the tastes of my own family. I like to be creative with the ingredients depending on what time of year it is, and I love to use lots of fresh herbs from our garden in the summer." —Tara Ruberto, Thunder Bay, Ont.
