Fine Dining at Home … and Healthy!

Tuesday’s dinner was as perfect as it gets. It met so many of our requirements for healthy eating. From a taste standpoint it rivalled high-end restaurant food. The  plate-share was perfect at ½ vegetables and fruit, ¼ grains, and ¼ fish. Throw in some of the best spices and you couldn’t ask for more.

Two of the dishes were from Moosewood Restaurant Simple Suppers. The entrée was the Moroccan Spiced Fish (Salmon) on page 157. The spices made our taste buds jump. This unique blend is called Moroccan Spice Mix on page 239 and includes:

2 tbsp ground cumin

2 tsp ground ginger or cinnamon

2 tsp paprika

2 tsp turmeric

½ tsp cayenne or black pepper

1 tsp salt

The grains in the Cranberry Bulgur Pilaf on page 183 added a starchy balance to the heat and spiciness of the salmon.

The veggies and fruit dish was Coleslaw with Apples & Dried Cranberries from:

It was cool, sweet and refreshing, enticing you to work your way around the plate again.
