Frozen Entrees: 20 Healthy, Tasty Frozen Meals (cont.)
NOTE: This is a quick way to try to work toward your recommended 2-3 servings of fish a week! A very nice dish made with 100% whole grain pasta. I liked all the ingredients, and just added a couple of teaspoons of shredded Parmesan to complete the flavors.
NOTE: Salmon was tender, and the pilaf and walnuts added crunch. The flavors are subtle; you may want to squeeze a lemon wedge or extra sprinkle of pepper over the top.
NOTE: Tastes homemade and uses white and dark skinless chicken meat. You really only need to use one of the two sauce packets -- this will bring down the sodium, too.
NOTE: Start warming up your toaster oven to 400 degrees while you microwave 4 taquitos for a minute to quickly thaw them. Then crisp up your taquitos by baking them on a sheet of foil in the toaster oven for 4-5 minutes.
NOTE: This is great tasting and spicy. I thaw one of the quesadillas in the microwave for a minute then brown and crisp it in a nonstick frying pan (this takes 1 minute).
NOTE: The fat grams mainly come from canola and olive oil. One 17.3-ounce container makes 2 servings of this elegant entrée. Because it doesn't contain any fiber, you'll need to serve the chicken with whole-grain noodles or steamed brown rice and vegetables.
NOTE: Very tasty! Heat up quickly over the stove with 1/4 cup water or low-fat milk, or in a microwave-safe dish without any liquid added. It's even better with a sprinkle of shredded Parmesan cheese over each serving.
NOTE: Very appealing and satisfying entrée. A tablespoon of soy nuts or chopped peanuts adds a nice crunch. The majority of the fat grams seem to come from tofu, peanut butter, peanuts, and canola oil.
