Fiesta Quinoa Stuffed Bell Peppers

Get ready to pack some Mexican flair into your busy evenings! These quinoa-stuffed bell peppers are no joke! A household favourite, packed with fibre, flavour and the perfect amount of fiesta! Start by preparing the quinoa in advance and mix it with black beans, corn, diced tomatoes, and a medley of spices. Next, stuff the colourful bell peppers and bake them until tender. Top with a dollop of guacamole, sour cream or shredded cheese to finish it off! 

Zesty Pesto Pasta Perfection

Who said a gourmet-style dinner takes hours? Not us! To start, boil some pasta of your choice—penne, fusilli, or spaghetti—it’s your call. While it cooks to al dente perfection, whip up a zesty pesto sauce with fresh basil, garlic, Parmesan cheese, and pine nuts (or any nuts you love). Mix it all together with a splash of olive oil, and you’ve got yourself a heavenly bowl of pesto pasta that’s oozing with flavour!

Speedy Veggie Quesadillas

Craving something cheesy? Look no further! These veggie quesadillas are a perfect choice for a quick and simple comfort meal! Grab a whole-grain tortilla and layer it with your go-to veggies like spinach, bell peppers, tomatoes, and a generous sprinkle of ooey-gooey cheese. Fold it in half and toast it on a hot pan until golden brown. Easy, quick, and oh-so-delicious! 

Pita Power Pizzas

Calling all pizza lovers… this one’s for you! We’ve got a simple and quick pizza-style dinner you can whip up for the family, instead of ordering out! Grab some whole-wheat pitas of choice and get creative with your toppings. Slather on some marinara sauce, sprinkle low-fat mozzarella cheese and add a rainbow of veggies. Pop them into the oven for a quick bake, and you’ll have personal-sized, guilt-free pizzas ready in no time!
