Take your family on a jaunt to Greece in just 30 minutes. Here, creamy yogurt with dill and garlic stands in for tomato sauce, while a lightly browned phyllo topping adds both crispiness and flavor.
Olive oil cooking spray
10 oz baby spinach (about 12 cups lightly packed)
Sea salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste
3/4 cup 2% plain Greek yogurt
3 tbsp chopped fresh dill
2 green onions, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1-lb pizza crust of your choice (whole-wheat, gluten-free or cauliflower)
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
1 cup cooked and cooled shredded boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 cup shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese
1 sheet frozen whole-wheat or spelt phyllo, thawed, optional
Arrange oven rack in bottom third of oven; preheat to 425°F.
Mist a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat on medium-high. Add spinach and cook, stirring frequently, until just wilted, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, then transfer to a plate and cool to room temperature.
Meanwhile, prepare yogurt sauce: In a small bowl, combine yogurt, dill, green onions and garlic. Season with salt and pepper.
Spread yogurt sauce evenly over crust. Top with spinach, red onion, chicken, mozzarella and feta. Mist phyllo (if using) with cooking spray, tear into 3-inch pieces, scrunch into balls and arrange over top of pizza. Bake for 20 minutes, until crust and phyllo are golden.
Fennel, shallots and olives are a popular combination, making this light and elegant flatbread a surefire hit. We've tossed the shallots in a bit of lemon juice to brighten their flavor and roasted the fennel to bring out its natural sweetness.
Green goddess dressing normally refers to a creamy dressing made with mayonnaise, herbs and other ingredients. In this pasta salad, though, we pack an array of fresh herbs – parsley, cilantro, dill and mint – into the salad itself, then toss it with a creamy coconut dressing for maximum decadence.
A Portuguese specialty, piri piri are hot chiles that are blended into a pungent sauce. Here, we use them as a marinade for chicken thighs along with yogurt and a blend of spices. While yogurt is not traditional, it's a great substitute for oil in marinades such as this one. Try serving with grilled tomatoes and lemon wedges.
