Marinating overnight with lemon and garlic produces tender and intensely flavourful chicken from your grill. The result is a perfect accompaniment to Roasted Chilled Marinated Vegetables. Leftovers, if there are any, are delicious in a host of dishes, including Avocado Green Goddess Chicken Grain Bowls or Collard Chicken Wraps with Green Hummus.
In wide shallow bowl large enough to hold chicken, combine olive oil, lemon juice, Dijon, garlic, rosemary, and pepper. Whisk to blend. Place chicken into mixture and rotate and roll around to evenly coat. Cover and refrigerate, preferably overnight.
Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before grilling. Grease barbecue grill and preheat to medium high.
Place chicken on greased grill and grill for 15 to 18 minutes, turning once. Chicken is done when innermost temperature of chicken reads 165 F (75 C) when tested with a meat thermometer.
Transfer to cutting board and slice on the diagonal before serving.
Substitute with grass-fed flank steak, if you wish. Grill for 10 to 15 minutes for medium rare, flipping halfway through cooking time. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
This vegan take on classic shepherd’s pie is jam-packed with bold and rich flavours that will ensure no one will miss the meat. While a great source of fibre, lentils also contain the highest amount of folate out of all plant-based foods. Oven ready If you don’t have an ovenproof skillet, you’ll need to transfer cooked lentil filling to a baking dish before topping with mashed sweet potatoes and baking.
Cauliflower has been having a moment lately, and this salad proves exactly why. Tender caramelized cauliflower is crowned in a glorious sweet and savoury crumble that will ensure it a place on your table all month long. Of all tree nuts, pecans have the highest concentration of flavonoids, which offer beneficial anti-inflammatory effects, and they also protect your cells from oxidative damage. Crumble perfection This crumble topping is too good not to use it on other preparations. Sprinkle over a carrot ribbon salad to add some extra pizzazz, use as a glorious garnish on a soup or stew, or consider generously spooning over your next vegetable “steak” to add some delicious textural variation.
This gloriously comforting dish gets its creamy lusciousness from a can of white beans. Feel free to use whatever vegetables you have on hand instead of broccoli. Pass the pasta Instead of regular pasta, consider serving this sauce over zucchini noodles, carrot noodles, or cooked spaghetti squash.
This nut-free take on classic queso dip is everything you want and more. Paired with chips, crackers, or crudités, this creamy, zesty, smoky, and oh-so-satisfying dip is easy enough to whip up for a cozy snack or as an appetizer for company. Go nuts! If you’re okay to eat nuts, try substituting sunflower seeds with 1 cup (250 mL) raw cashews.
