Healthy Recipe: Jalapeno Cilantro Hummus:
Hummus is a protein-packed bean dip that’s well loved by the health community. It is loaded with antioxidants and immune-strengthening ingredients, and is the perfect addition to your holiday menu. Plus, two tablespoons delivers less than 100 calories of plant-powered goodness. This mildly spicy version is fantastic with fresh-cut vegetables or toasted whole-wheat pita bread.
Grilled Winter Veggies with Miso Dipping Sauce:
You’re not a true grill master until you’ve learned the ropes of the vegetable. Grilled vegetables on their own, or alongside a piece of juicy protein, make any meal more gourmet, diverse, and nutritious. In this recipe, the vegetables are paired with a flavorful miso dipping sauce which, quite frankly, is so good you’ll find yourself dipping much more than vegetables into it.
Note: If you don’t have mirin (a Japanese sweet rice wine) you can whip up a similar substitution with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry: Combine 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon white wine, and 1 teaspoon of honey.
