2012 Healthy Recipe Roundup

For those of you looking to stay lean and light this New Year, we’ve compiled a roundup of our freshest recipes from 2012. Read on for our top 5 recipes featuring seafood, vegetables, and uplifting flavors like our Citrus Olive Oils and new Balsamic Vinegars. Stay tuned for more healthy recipes coming just around the corner!

1)      Pan-Seared Pecan Crusted Tilapia

A light dinner solution with crunch and nutty flavor, this easy recipe for pecan-crusted tilapia can be made in less than 10 minutes. Serve with a side of roasted or steamed vegetables and a drizzle of your favorite extra virgin olive oil.

2)      Grilled Primavera Pasta

This pasta recipe is loaded with grilled seasonal vegetables in a no-tomato sauce base. (When it’s too chilly to roll out the grill, simply roast the vegetables instead of grilling them.) Just add extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fresh basil, and a touch of Parmesan cheese. Tip: Try with whole grain pasta for an extra boost of fiber!

3)      Butternut Squash and Lentils with Clementine-Balsamic Dressing

Cozy up with a hearty, satisfying recipe that’s made without the usual rich ingredients you’ll find in comfort foods. Our recipe for butternut squash and lentils is creamy, soothing, and made with just a few basic kitchen staples. It’s one recipe that shows vegetarian food can still be substantial.

4)      Wilted Brussels Sprouts With Cherry-Balsamic Dressing

We couldn’t get enough of Brussels Sprouts in 2012, and we created this recipe to highlight the versatility of this wonderful green veggie. Thinly sliced Brussels Sprouts are gently sautéed with ginger in extra virgin olive oil, then finished off with a splash of our true-cherry Black Cherry Balsamic Vinegar, chopped nuts, and a hint of spicy chives.

5)      Clementine Sautéed Apples

Whether breakfast, dessert, or a midday snack, these sautéed apples are spiced, sweet, and so scrumptious! Sliced apples are sautéed in our citrus-infused Clementine Olive Oil with warm winter spices. Finish this homey dish off with a dollop of crème fraiche or whipped cream for a hint of indulgence.
