Cutting chicken breasts into thin cutlets helps them cook quickly on the grill – if you can find pre-sliced cutlets, use them instead and save yourself the prep work. A quick blender sauce with fresh basil and lime is smothered over top for a zesty, spicy kick.
Applesauce is rewarding to make at home for its better, fresher taste, and compared to store-bought, it’s entirely free of added sugars and preservatives. Strawberries give a tangy bite and pretty pink hue and take advantage of the extra-flavorful, first-of-the-season fruit.
Stone fruits like peaches are great for grilling – they’re meaty enough to hold up to the heat and the sugars caramelize beautifully on the grates. Most dulce de leche recipes use dairy, but ours uses full-fat coconut milk instead.
This hearty dinner-in-a-bowl is packed with healthful grains, flavorful veggies and perfectly grilled fish. It gets a kick from a fresh sauce made with yogurt, roasted red peppers, and harissa – a spicy North African chile paste. If you can’t find the paste, you can easily substitute with a hot sauce, such as sriracha. It won’t have the same blend of spices, but it will be just as tasty.
These Asian-inspired chicken burgers get a burst of umami flavor from a homemade pineapple teriyaki sauce. Serve them on whole-wheat buns, or, for a lighter take, try lettuce leaves. In addition to the grilled pineapple, sliced avocado and grilled onions make tasty toppings.
Jicama is a crunchy, mild vegetable that’s common in Mexican cuisine. It looks a little intimidating because of its size and odd shape, but once you peel it, the cool flesh is easy to slice and adds a crisp texture to salads.
The herbal taste of basil with lime juice and a touch of salt and pepper make the fruits in this bowl taste even sweeter. Mix and match with your favorite melons and berries.
