Latin Fusion Sirloin Skewers
The summer season is here! Time to light up the flames under some mean, tasty food. Of course, no summer get-together is complete without some skewers thrown on to a grill. For this dish, I recommend using lean, top sirloin steak cuts for a healthier red meat option, mixed up with some colorful vegetables. The marinade fuses the Latin flavors of aji, cilantro and lime with the Asian flavors of the soy sauce. The low saturated fat content of canola oil allows the marinade to stay free-flowing in the refrigerator.
Quinoa Stuffed Tri-Colored Bell Peppers
Wow your friends and family at your next potluck or gathering with this meatless main that also works as a great side dish. Using tricolor quinoa and tricolor bell peppers provides a rainbow on your plate. Heart-healthy canola oil boosts the nutritional value in this recipe, having the least saturated fat and most plant-based omega-3 fat of the common cooking oils while adding vitamins E and K.
Pork Stir Fry
Making a stir fry is a fun and exciting culinary experience with a certain exotic flare. Here, I use a combination of asparagus, onions and bell peppers to add crunch and nutritional value to the dish, and recommend pork tenderloin to satisfy the meat eaters. For a proper stir fry, you need three things: a wok, great flavor and high heat. Canola oil has a high smoke point and neutral flavor so the rest of the ingredients can really shine. Best way to serve a stir fry? Try pairing it with whole grains, like brown rice or quinoa.
