If there is one ingredient that is always in my fridge, it’s always a jar of honey Dijon mustard. It’s one of the easiest ways to boost the flavour in a dish, with very little fat or calories added as well. (especially compared to how I like to use butter to add flavour as well, of course.).  There is a reason that every single diet out there allows mustard as a flavour enhancer; you get the most bang for your buck for very few calories.

It’s also my go-to when creating vinaigrettes as Dijon mustard acts as a binding agent between olive oil and vinegar, which gives it a smooth texture, not to mention adds that flavour boost.

Now, to get all kitchen science on you, honey Dijon mustard is thick and thus can act as an emulsifier, which lets you cook with lighter ingredients such as Greek yogurt. Mustard is also an often-overlooked healthy addition to a meal; it’s full of omega-3 fatty acids, selenium, fiber, protein, magnesium, iron and calcium, to name a few.

I’ve partnered today with Maille to bring you all sorts of information on how to up your family’s intake of vegetables to the “7 a day” that we all need.

With summer coming, this chart on how to grill vegetables like a pro will come in handy!

Maille Mustard Dijon Mustard Marinade Instruction

Use the simple marinade listed above to make the best grilled vegetables using Maille Honey Dijon mustard.

You can also use it to help with your picky eaters, as only two out of five Canadian kids are currently getting their “7 a day”. Providing a fun and tangy honey Dijon mustard dip for vegetables can encourage them to try new things.  Summer is the perfect time to try out all sorts of new flavours and as adults we sometimes forget that we also need our 7 a day. By encouraging the kids to develop better eating habits we in turn will start adopting better eating as well. Let’s face it, eating vegetables is more enjoyable when they are delicious!
