This Week’s Top Recipes

During Meatless March and our journey to use less meat I have yet to turn to those faux meat products. I have used regular old tofu a few times, but the soy crumbles that are meant to taste like turkey or chicken just kind of weird me out. Instead I have been seeking out filling and hearty vegetable heavy dishes, such as this ratatouille.
Dump all the ingredients into the crockpot and let it do it’s magic. This ratatouille is packed full of my favorite healthy vegetables. I found this recipe on Better Homes and Gardens website and they suggest serving it with parmesan toast. The parmesan toast I’m sure would be a delicious addition, but frankly I was just too lazy to make it and instead sliced up a multigrain baguette.
Leave off the cheese and make this an easy vegan meal.
- 1 medium eggplant, peeled and cubed
- 2 medium yellow or zucchini squash, cubed
- 1 large tomato, seeded and cubed
- ½ green bell pepper, chopped
- ¼ large white onion, chopped
- 4 oz tomato sauce
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ⅛ teaspoon pepper
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
- Parmesan cheese, for serving
- In the crockpot combine all ingredients except basil and parmesan cheese. Cover and cook on low for 4.5 to 5 hours.
- Before serving stir in basil and top each bowl with parmesan cheese.
Don’t you love all these uses for cauliflower lately? Mashed “potatoes”, fried “rice”, what’s next? This was a dish that you may even get a non cauliflower eater to like. The coconut oil and soy sauce cover up the cauliflower taste in my opinion and you are left with the healthiest fried rice you could ever have.
My friend Brianne over at Cupcakes and Kale Chips planted the idea in my head when she posted a Cauliflower Fried Rice for Skinny #SundaySupper. Hers is a little different than mine, including some brown rice and meat protein, but I figured having two eggs in there was protein enough since the plan was to serve this with the Tofu Mushroom Miso Soup. But we ended up being so full from the soup that we stuck the fried rice in the fridge for lunch the next day.
I may have processed my cauliflower a little too long trying to get those few stubborn pieces to break up. It ended up more the size of cous cous, but it worked.
Cauliflower Fried “Rice”
- 2-3 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 head of cauliflower, chopped and washed
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- ½ cup chopped white onion
- 1 cup chopped carrots
- 1 cup chopped broccoli florets
- 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- 2 eggs, whisked
- In a large food processor (you may have to work in batches) pulse the head of cauliflower, until it is about the size of rice.
- Heat 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add cauliflower and cook until it starts to brown, stirring often to ensure even cooking. Add additional tablespoon of coconut oil is necessary.
- In a separate small skillet combine sesame oil, onions, carrots, and broccoli and sauté on medium heat for 4-5 minutes. Once vegetables are soft, toss with the cauliflower and soy sauce in large skillet.
- Create a hole in the middle by pushing all the veggies to the sides. Add the eggs and scramble, until cooked. Toss in with the fried ”rice” and serve.
This week #SundaySupper is focusing on all things skinny and let’s face it after all that Valentine’s Day candy and chocolates we could all probably use that. My jeans tell me I could use a few more skinny #SundaySuppers.
I wanted to try something that I hadn’t tried yet, Mashed Cauliflower. I keep hearing about it being a substitute for mashed potatoes, yada , yada, yada… I don’t really eat mashed potatoes too often, but I am a big fan of cauliflower in any way, shape, or form so I wanted to test out a recipe.
This recipe I got from Whole Foods and while it was good and I enjoyed it I don’t think you could pass this off for potatoes to any one. Guess what it tasted like? If you guessed mashed cauliflower you would be correct.
Mashed Cauliflower for Skinny #SundaySupper
- 1 head of cauliflower or 1 bag of chopped and washed
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- salt and pepper
- If using a head of cauliflower chop and wash.
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add cauliflower and cook about 10 minutes, until tender.
- Save about ¼ cup of cooking liquid and drain remaining water.
- Return cauliflower to pot and mash with potato mashed. Add oil. Add cooking liquid 1 tablespoon at a time.
- Season with salt, pepper, and chives.

I am constantly stuffing different ingredients in chicken. It is such a great way to take a plain ole chicken breast and make it exciting.
After tasting the Sun Dried Tomato Tapenade that I posted yesterday my mind immediately went to stuffed chicken breasts. I have made similar stuffed chicken before with Mediterranean flavors, but this one was just too easy to pass up.
For a side try a simple roasted broccoli like I did. Drizzle with some olive oil, salt and pepper and stick it in the oven while you cook the chicken.
Feta and Tapenade Stuffed Chicken
Recipe type: Main
- 2 chicken breasts, butterflied and pounded ¼” thin
- Salt and pepper
- 8 tablespoons feta cheese
- Sun Dried Tomato Tapenade
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Place 2-3 tablespoons of tapenade and 2 tablespoons of feta cheese in the center of each chicken breast and roll up. Stick a toothpick through to keep closed. Season outside of chicken breast with salt and pepper.
- Bake 20-25 minutes.
I made these turkey apple meatballs shortly after Jennie posted the recipe for #SundaySupper. I had just gotten back from Georgia and had plenty of apples to use. I am a huge fan of meatballs, they might be one of my favorite foods, but served over a big plate of pasta they aren’t always the healthiest. If you want to still enjoy meatballs while keeping the carbs and calories down check out these two ways to serve them.
As a salad! Thanks to Isabel for this fabulous idea I have been eating meatball salads every time we have leftover meatballs. For this salad I used chopped apple, pomegranate seeds, sweet and spicy pecans, and a raspberry vinaigrette. For an easy throw together lunch or dinner you can’t go wrong with a quick salad.
And the second way, on top of a bowl of spaghetti squash. Roast the spaghetti squash just like the herbed spaghetti squash recipe I posted, but leave off the parmesan cheese and herbs. Instead drizzle extra of the meatball’s sauce on top.
The spaghetti squash and meatballs were a match made in heaven. Usually my husband isn’t a fan of spaghetti squash, but I got him to admit that even this was delicious.
For the meatball recipe check out Jennie at The Messy Baker and enjoy two dinners from one prep!
