Tasteful Tuesday: Veggie Stir-Fry

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2019

This week’s recipe is great for a healthy and hearty weeknight meal, as well as for serving friends and family during a seasonal party or get-together. The vegetables listed here can be swapped out for others if you desire; try to stay close to the measurements so the ratio of veggies to the garlic and ginger coating stays consistent.

Metal Recipe Card HolderWhat You’ll Need:

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh ginger root
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 cup snow peas
  • 3/4 cup carrots, rondelle
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, blend cornstarch, garlic, ginger, and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil until cornstarch is dissolved. Mix in broccoli, snow peas, carrots, and green beans, tossing to lightly coat.
  2. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat. Cook vegetables in oil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent burning.
  3. Stir in soy sauce and water, then mix in onion and salt. Cook until vegetables are tender but still crisp. Eat alone, over rice or with a meat of your choice.

Tasteful Tuesday: One-Pot Chicken and Sausage Orzo

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

Today we’re sharing this exceptional dish from AllRecipes – because we’ve recently fell in love with its exact ingredients list and prep instructions. One suggestion that comes at the end of the video – which we think are helpful knowing from the outset – is to cook and brown the chicken breast first then set aside until the end (to prevent overcooking). We would also recommend adding some garlic and onion for a bit more flavor, and using low-sodium chicken broth or stock to cut down on salt content. Enjoy!

Tasteful Tuesday: Baked Parmesan Chicken

Tuesday, January 8th, 2019

We’re kicking a year of recipes off with instructions for baked chicken featuring Parmesan cheese. The two “secrets” that set this cheesy baked chicken apart from others are paprika and red pepper.

Metal Recipe Card HolderWhat You’ll Need:

  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 chicken breasts;
    skinless, boneless, halved
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Coat a shallow baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg and milk. Set to the side. In a shallow bowl, combine flour, Parmesan, all paprika, salt, and pepper.
  3. One at a time, dip the halved chicken breasts in the egg mixture, then dredge in the flour mixture. Place in the baking dish and pour the melted butter evenly over the chicken. Sprinkle the crushed red pepper over the top.
  4. Bake for about 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until the cheese has browned and the chicken has cooked. Serve with rice, pasta or your favorite vegetables.
