Some of the healthiest, most flavorful meals you’ll ever taste are ethnic sensations from all over the world. Keep your abs and health in check with these five delicious meals.
1. One Pot Spicy Thai Zoodles by Domestic Superhero.
Chef Allyson kills it with this simple, carb-less Thai recipe. Indulge in this melange of perfect flavory homemade goodness. Your taste buds will be in Thai heaven.
2. Broiled Haitian Griot aka Pork Shoulder by New York Times Cooking
Marinated with flavors that will make your tastebuds lose it (in the best way possible). Usually, this dish is fried, but make a healthy version by slow cooking it for a few hours in a crock pot. Whip up a side of rice and beans to complete the dish. Add some Haitian pikliz to the mix, and you might just pack up and move straight to Haiti. Yes, it’s that good.
3. This Springtime Farro Salad by Proud Italian Cook
This recipe is SO EASY. Find 10 minute farro at your local Trader Joe’s. Add some jalapeños if you want some spice in your life.
4. Pasilla Chile Colorado by the Domestic Man
OK. There’s one thing that really needs to be acknowledged by every human in this world. The pasilla pepper is God’s literal gift to this Earth. When aiming for deep, authentic Mexican flavors that don’t set your mouth on fuego, blend up a few dried pasilla peppers with some white onions, water, tomatoes, garlic and salt. Slow cook any meat or vegetable combo in this heavenly concoction, and have your friends and family thinking you have secret Mexican ancestors hiding somewhere in your ear.
5. Chicken Tikka Masala by Bon Appétit
If you’ve never tried the Indian classic, Chicken Tikka Masala, we highly suggest you do ASAP because life is short, and you really shouldn’t have to live another day without tasting these flavors. Substitute chicken for vegetables and/or tofu for a vegetarian version. Trader Joe’s sells frozen naan without all the chemicals found in most other store bought naan. Plus, it tastes like you just whipped it up yourself. Win-win.
