It's not that we didn't thoroughly enjoy treating ourselves during the holidays (devouring a box of chocolate-covered cherries while watching Love Actually is an annual indulgence we look forward to all year). It's just that, with the festive season wrapped, we're honestly eager to get back on track as far as our diet is concerned (a few more Yuletide rom-coms won't hurt anyone, though). That said, our brand-new Panasonic 3 in 1 Steam Oven ($699 at dealers across Canada) will be very handy when it comes to making meals that are not only good for us, but delicious too. The steam technology in combination with its grill, oven and microwave cook options offer mealtime solutions in a flash, making healthy gourmet-quality fare easy. Here are three mouthwatering, nutrition-forward dishes we'll be whipping up, post-Christmas, thanks to this cutting-edge appliance. —Noa Nichol
healthy hummus. Sweet potatoes steamed in the Panasonic 3 in 1 Steam Oven and blended with garlic, chickpeas, olive oil, lemon juice and tahini paste takes hummus to healthy new heights (you can even bake fabulous dippable flatbreads with this all-purpose kitchen tool).
fit fish 'n' chips. Salmon filets grilled and lightly marinated in olive oil, tamari sauce and maple syrup, served with a side of kale chips (kale, olive oil and sea salt). Both can be prepared in the Panasonic 3 in 1 Steam Oven and will hit the post-holiday health spot.
quinoa cupcakes, too. Yup, this baby makes desserts—with healthy benefits, to boot! We baked gluten-free cupcakes that included cooked quinoa, nut milk, blueberries and walnuts in the Panasonic 3 in 1 Steam Oven and were delighted by the delicious, nutritious results.
