FoodShare is a non-profit organization that has delivered good, healthy food and food education in Toronto for over 30 years. We've made this our mission because we believe in the power of food. Food connects, food transforms and food heals. When it comes to building community and building health, a well-cooked meal, shared in good company, can be a blessing.
A key FoodShare mandate is improving the food literacy of children and adults across Toronto. This could be done through a community kitchen for elders, or it could be a food pathways workshop for eighth graders, as two examples. Our workshops focus on eating more vegetables and fruit and eating them in a way that's good and healthy!
To further our mandate, we've teamed up with Tangerine to create a little recipe collection: 20-Minute Meals Under $20. Too often our meals need prep time we don't have, or cost too much to become reliable kitchen favourites. In the spirit of good healthy food for all, we'd like to share these quick, low-cost recipes from our kitchen. They're all healthy, flexible meals you can cook with ingredients on hand. We can't wait to see how you make them!
"Eating your veggies is always top of mind at FoodShare, and we at Tangerine also believe that you should be able to save and keep more of your money while you plan dinner. So we've teamed up to share these delicious recipes that will save you time and money," says Nicole Francis, Senior Manager, Content Marketing at Tangerine.
What's in the Fridge Frittata
There's no better solution to a busy weeknight dinner hustle than eggs. A frittata is a little more exciting than scrambled eggs on toast and gives you an opportunity to experiment or, at the very least, use stuff that's in the fridge. Serve this with a little side salad, and you've got a lovely, quick weeknight meal. Click here to see the full recipe.
Quinoa Grain Bowl
Much like the frittata, grain bowls are great in any combination you can dream of. When you have the chance, if you make extra roasted vegetables and grains, you can whip these satisfying bowls up at a moment's notice with food you've already got prepared. Click here to see the full recipe.
Chocolate Chia Pudding
This indulgence is packed with nutrient-rich chia seed, naturally sweetened with maple syrup and seasoned simply with a splash of vanilla and hint of cinnamon. It's good for you, delicious and super simple to make. What a treat! Click here to see the full recipe.
