Just in time for the summer grilling season, these turkey burgers deliver lots of flavor with not as much fat as traditional ground beef burgers. An easy maple syrup glaze and a dollop of tangy yogurt mustard sauce pump the taste up a notch as well.

    Your Favorite Quinoa Salad Recipe to the Rescue!

    Quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wah) is a healthy, high-protein, gluten-free alternative to grains. It is actually a seed and is considered a complete protein and a superfood. Quinoa has a light nutty flavor and is extremely versatile. I often use it in place of rice and toss it on salads and into soups. This quinoa salad is perfect as a side dish or you can throw some grilled fish or chicken on top for a main course. Give it a try!

     
  • Mediterranean Fish in Parchment Paper

    Mediterranean Fish in Parchment Paper

    Baking fish in parchment paper or tin foil is known in France as poisson en papillote (fish in a parcel). It is a very simple and healthy way to cook fish and is also very flavorful since the fish and vegetables cook together in their own seasoned juices. Cleanup is easy too! Any white fish will work. I used tilapia in this recipe. You can refer to the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch guide to help you make ocean-friendly seafood choices.
