Today it’s all about the mains. Let us discuss one of my favorite main course dishes – THE ZUCCHINI RISOTTO. With very few ingredients to make with, this one is a sure shot winner for that easy and laid back dinner preparations. It’s so filling that all you would need along is something to gulp down with. This creamy yet not that heavy dish gets it’s color from the addition of crunchy zucchini and sun dried tomatoes. Off-course the basil does what it does best- lends a beautiful aroma to this dish. Unlike any other usually butter loaded risottos, this one is very light on the palette. This can be one of your GO-TO weekend meals which will enhance that quality time you will spend around the dinner table with the most special people.

HAVE A SWEET TOOTH? LOVE DESSERTS? Don’t stress at all. I have something insanely delicious for you which is absolutely low in calories. It’s my favorite piece of yumminess whenever I am in need of that post dinner dessert. And guess what? With ingredients like DATES, COCONUT & ALMOND BUTTER, it’s one of the most energizing options for something sweet. Make a big batch of this and just snack on them before gym (will give you some instant energy for that sweaty workout), as a snack, with your favorite cup of caffeine or just because they are irresistible. If you love chocolate, add some unsweetened cocoa powder for that awesome chocolaty taste. You can even switch the almond butter with peanut butter, these balls will be as good anyway. Munch on them without any fear as each ball is as low as 61 calories.
2 dates, pitted & diced

Veggies are an important part of my dinner table. I love having them in any way, raw or cooked because they are so full of nutrients. This recipe of healthy Roasted Vegetables is ridiculously easy to make and yet so delish. I usually make these veggies whenever I am in a fix as to what to be served during dinner as a side dish. There are no specific ingredient rules, just use whatever veggies you prefer. The balsamic vinegar can be replaced by a fresh drizzle of lemon or even some soy sauce. The choice is entirely yours. Serve it with your favorite main course, brown rice or just on a bed of quinoa, it will be as good any way.

The weekend is here. Yes, it is my favorite part of the week & am pretty sure yours too. Fridays are meant for friends, especially the closed ones. For weekends, we generally gather at one of our places and have a good time. Lots of food and music are the highlights of these evenings. Every Friday one person has to bring something special and new for all of us to munch on. Last week, it was my turn and as I came back from the office all tired and exhausted, I didn’t want to invest a lot of my precious weekend time in the kitchen. Instantly a recipe struck my mind, I had read about it somewhere and had always thought of making it. It was the perfect dish I could take to my friends and luckily I had all the magical ingredients in my refrigerator. Its the summer special GUACAMOLE & FETA SALSA.
