Vegetable and Fruit Stuffing
Very Good 4.2/5
(39 ratings)

Whole wheat bread gives this side staying power. The fruits and vegetables bulk up the dish, so a little goes a long way. A bit of turkey bacon adds another layer of flavor without adding many calories.

Saffron, Zucchini and Herb Couscous
(no ratings)

From Food Network's Ina Garten
(I tried the recipe and if you use dried basil only 3 tbsp are recommended; however, it is still a bit overpowering. I'd suggest 1 tbsp only unless you love the taste of basil.)
