‘Eating Clean on the Cheap’ – Vegetable and Chicken Curry or Veggie Pizza

Publix has some great veggies on sale this week! They also have all their “make-your-own-pizza” items on sale: bakery pizza dough, Ragu pizza sauce, and Publix shredded cheese. Ask for a multi-grain dough to make it even healthier, and top with peppers, mushrooms, onions, and tomatoes. Serve with a Fresh Express bagged salad with Marie’s dressing (in the produce department) to round out your dinner.  All of those items are on sale!

With the peppers, mushrooms, onions, and broccoli on sale, another great meal that comes to mind is a stir fry-like dish. I love curry so here is a recipe from Stonyfield Farms for a Yogurt Curry with Noodles. I like to add meat, and since Publix has their frozen chicken tenders are on sale, they make the perfect protein addition to the curry. I simply heat a bit of olive oil in a pan over medium heat, season the chicken with salt, pepper, and garlic, and sear for 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from the pan to cook the vegetables, and add back when the noodles are also added.

Ingredients

1 tablespoon butter(I use Earth Balance spread)
1 tablespoon flour
1/2 cup broth (chicken or vegetable)
1 cup Stonyfield Lowfat Plain Yogurt
2 teaspoons curry powder
Juice of one lemon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 cups yellow squash, sliced
1 cup snow peas
16 oz. whole wheat fettucini


Directions

Melt butter in the pan, over medium heat, and add flour, stir in broth. Cook until it thickens, stirring constantly. Slowly add the yogurt, curry powder, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Once finished, keep sauce warm while preparing the noodles. Boil the noodles until they are tender. Drain water, and reserve. Using a sauté pan, over medium-high heat, sauté minced garlic in olive oil until golden brown. Add summer squash, snow peas, and cook until vegetables are tender. Add pasta and mix with vegetables. Then toss in yogurt curry sauce before serving.
