10 Mouthwatering Recipes Loaded with Calcium

Grilled Sardines With Aioli

Broccoli is a favorite cruciferous vegetable for good reason. This mild-tasting vegetable contains vital minerals like magnesium, potassium, B6, vitamin C, and folate.

Arugula Salad

Arugula is a vitamin- and calcium-rich leafy green. Shredded Parmesan cheese and slivered almonds provide 125 milligrams of calcium to a modest, delightful salad. 

Flatbread Pizza

Flatbread pizzas with the right toppings can be calcium-rich appetizers or lunches without cheese! Crumbled canned salmon and heaps of arugula make a calcium-rich pie.

Figs Stuffed With Manchego Cheese

Fill sweet, chewy fresh figs with flavorful cheeses for a tasty appetizer. Spanish manchego is acidic and calcium-rich sheep's milk cheese.

Stuffed Grape Leaves

Greeks make stuffed grape leaves. Rice, aromatic herbs and spices, ground meat, and grape vine leaves make them.

Stuffed Endive

The crisp endive leaves are perfect for finger food. Mix low-fat cream cheese and smoked salmon, then scoop into an endive leaf. 

Dandelion Greens

Cooks enjoy dandelions' peppery flavor, even if they can invade a groomed landscape.


This green veggie is sweeter than broccoli. Small florets and long, sensitive stalks don't need peeling. 

Baby Bok Choy

Baby bok choy has green leaves and white stalks. This Chinese cabbage is gentler and tenderer. 

Salmon Croquettes With Dill Sauce

Salmon croquettes are a tasty calcium source. Canned salmon has 10-20x more calcium than fillets.
