Citrus Salad Mustard-Glazed Brussels
Sprouts and Oranges

Mustard-Glazed Brussels Sprouts and Oranges You'll win converts to Brussels sprouts when you serve this slightly sweet dish seasoned with honey-mustard and five spice powder.

Tip: When shopping for Brussels sprouts, look for firm, compact sprouts. Avoid large, yellowing ones, because their flavor will be bitter. The smaller, vivid green sprouts are the sweetest.

 

Oyster Stew This traditional stew has been pared down to 181 calories per serving but still has lots of flavor from the leeks, potatoes, and, of course, oysters.

 

Tri-Mushroom Soup Set the stage for a festive Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve dinner with this first-course soup. You can use any combination of mushrooms to total 12 ounces.

 

Mashed Potatoes and Gravy These fluffy potatoes and creamy gravy have just 201 calories per serving.

 

Yams with Pears This nutritious alternative to candied sweet potatoes has just one gram of fat per serving, and the bright orange yams are a rich source of beta carotene.

 

Spicy Citrus Dressing Drizzle this tangy dressing over a salad of mixed greens and fresh fruit, such as sliced apples, sliced pears, or sectioned oranges.
