This time around, I skipped the step of making gyoza altogether and simply made the meat filling, forming it into mini patties for gyoza sliders. When dressed with sauteed mushrooms and red onions, wasabi, pickled ginger and gyoza dipping sauce, these fusion burgers are a unique twist on the classic American burger and they make a tasty appetizer or main course.
The day after I made the chicken quinoa taco salad I made quesadillas with the leftovers. Considering that the taco salad was acutally a leftover meal, that means that I got three completely different meals out of our chicken tacos. That’s music to my ears for busy weekday dinners and lunches!
Adding quinoa to the mix is a great way to add protein along with other nutrients to this healthy and flavorful taco salad. If you have the chicken and salsa done in advance, it’s a quick way to turn leftover tacos into a new meal.
In this cordon bleu-inspired chicken, the chicken is stuffed with pistou/pesto, artichoke hearts, feta cheese and roasted red peppers.
This quinoa salad with peanut dressing is full of colorful veggies and packed with nutrients and lean protein. It’s a refreshing summer salad served warm or chilled.
In my family we don’t have a structured meal plan but we definitely tend to fall back on our simple favorites for busy nights. I love it when we find a new quick and easy meal that can be added to our weeknight meal rotation. This spicy peanut sauce makes the cut!
Gyro is a sandwich consisting of meat roasted on a vertical spit which is then shaved off in thin slices and wrapped in pita bread, topped with tomatoes, onions, and tzatziki sauce. My gyro-inspired wraps are technically not gyros because the meat is not cooked in the traditional way. However, in my opinion, they taste pretty darn close to an actual gyro. And they are healthier to boot!
Whether you call these pigs in a blanket, hot diggity dogs, corn dogs or hot dog pops, these chicken sausages baked in buns are a kid and crowd-pleaser. They are perfect for parties and they make a healthy snack or meal.
We were in the mood for a roasted chicken but I wanted to change the routine. So I seasoned this oven-roasted chicken with salsa verde, cilantro, limes and cerveza, making the chicken perfect for tacos, enchiladas or any other Mexican-style meal.
This lasagna is a hearty, comforting meal that is perfect for a special Valentine’s Day dinner. It’s easy to do by simply cutting heart shapes out of the cooked lasagna noodles.
