Ribollita is a great go-to meal for weeknights ahead because it tastes even better a day or two after it’s been made. Don’t let the long list of ingredients intimidate you. This is truly a chop-dump-stir recipe. If you can pick up a knife, you can do this!
Make a double batch of our lively black bean salsa and enjoy in all sorts of ways, for example, as a topping for green salads, poultry, or fish, or blended with whole-grain rice.
Enjoy these little cuties not only as an appetizer but also blended with pasta, or as savory filler for sandwiches with baby lettuce and sliced cucumbers, pita-style. If desired, top Salmon Balls with a bit of our chefs’ Cucumber Yogurt Dill Sauce.* (See Recipe notes.)
Typical stuffed potatoes and skins are stuffed, literally, with butter and full-fat cheese, tallying up scary amounts of saturated fat, which can stuff our poor arteries with plaque. The Loaded Potato Skins at Chili’s Restaurants, for example, have 35 grams of sat fat. It’s like eating 14 pats of butter. With our recipe, you get 0 grams of sat fat, yet loads of creamy, delicious flavor.
The next time you’re in the mood for a crunchy snack, try this delicious, nutrient-rich recipe for Pritikin Kale Chips. With less sodium, fewer calories and a lot earthier flavor than their prepackaged counterparts, these kale chips will big a hit. This recipe works best with flat-leaf varieties of kale, not the curly kind.
Many pickled foods have more sodium than most of us should have for the entire day. These pickled carrots and onions have zero added sodium. And certainly, branch out! This recipe works well for any firm vegetable. For veggies with softer texture, like zucchini, go ahead and boil your vinegar, water, and pickling spice, but let it cool to room temperature before pouring over your soft veggies.
This recipe is by a guest favorite at the Pritikin Center. Pritikin Cooking School Chef, Ernesto Alonso Aguila.
Why stiffen your arteries with the mega doses of sodium and fat in typical fast food fries (a small bag can have up to 160 milligrams of sodium and 11 grams of fat) when you can enjoy the vinegary tartness and garlic-onion crunch of Pritikin Roasted Potato Wedges for zero milligrams of sodium and zero grams of fat?
