In an effort to encourage Canadians to take a good, hard look at their eating habits, celebrity chef Michael P. Clive recently joined forces with Clover Leaf Seafoods to re-invent fast-food. The result is a number of new recipes that challenge popular favourites like pizza, tacos, Pad Thai, shawarma, burritos and even the classic burger with bacon and cheese.
Each recipe conforms with Canada's Food Guide recommended 2,000 calorie/day diet by replacing the less nutritious parts of takeout with healthier alternatives. If you are thinking about ordering pizza tonight, try this instead:
|Naan bread||200 Gram (1 package, 2 pieces, 100 gram each)|
|Pizza sauce||125 Milliliter (1/2 cup)|
|Goat cheese||125 Milliliter (1/2 cup)|
|Canned flaked light tuna with sundried tomato and basil||170 Gram (2 cans, 85 gram each, Clover Leaf)|
|Sliced black olives||125 Milliliter (1/2 cup)|
Place the Naan bread on a flat surface and spread the pizza sauce over top of the breads.
Sprinkle with cheese, tuna and top with black olives.
Place under the broiler for 3 minutes or until Naan is crisp.
Other topping suggestions include sliced red onions, mushrooms or peppers.
Alternatively, replace Naan with flat greek pita (85 g each).
