Tip of the Day
Go Global with Vegetarian Dishes
Vegetarian dishes are typical fare in many parts of the world. Exploring vegetarian options is a great way to get out of your comfort zone and try combinations you might not usually try, and perhaps discover some new favorites! Be careful, some vegetarian dishes are not low-fat if they are packed with full-fat cheeses, oils or butter.
Here are some vegetarian dishes you could find in kitchens across the world, but feel free to get creative in your kitchen with your own:
Egg foo yung: A frittata-like dish made by combining slightly whipped eggs with sliced vegetables, then frying in a skillet until browned; may be prepared with meat or poultry.
Vegetable-stuffed eggplant: Eggplant hollowed and filled with chopped vegetables, cooked grains and sometimes nuts.
Huevos rancheros: Scrambled eggs prepared with onions and served with tomato salsa, vegetarian refried beans and tortillas.
Callaloo: A one-pot stew made with dark-green leafy vegetables, a variety of other vegetables, peppers and seasonings.
