Spicy Quinoa Stirfry

Spicy Quinoa Stirfry

This has been a mainstay lately for lunch. It’s a spicy take on my quinoa fried rice recipe. Usually I reach for broccoli, pea pods, and red cabbage but you could use any veggies you have on hand. I like to scramble my eggs and add them into the dish, but a poached egg on top would also be delicious. Add some tofu, shrimp, chicken, or pork for extra protein and make a big batch because it keeps great in the fridge.

Oven Baked Parmesan Zucchini Fries

Oven Baked Parmesan Zucchini Fries

Zucchini, Parmesan, and crunchy Panko breadcrumbs make this a side dish that your whole family will love. The zucchini is roasted until it is tender and the outside gets nice and crispy with a few minutes under the broiler before serving. I like to add Italian spices and serve them with a side of marinara sauce but you can substitute any spices you like. I have tried them with Greek seasoning, steak seasoning, and lemon pepper and they taste delicious every time.

Ancho Chile Ground Beef Tacos

Ancho Chile Ground Beef Tacos

I have a soft spot for a delicious ground beef taco. While their not authentic and you would be hard pressed to find anything resembling this taco in Mexico, they can be so comforting and delicious. I like to pile mine high with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, cilantro, shredded cheese, and salsa. Served up with salad, soft taco shells, these crispy baked shells, or on baked nachos – it makes a satisfying and super quick meal.

Friday Five: Freezer Friendly Soups

Friday Five: Freezer Friendly Soups

There is almost nothing better this time of year than to have a freezer full of delicious, warm, and comforting soups portioned out in the freezer for lunches or dinners in a rush. Here are some of my favorite freezer friendly soups. What are yours?

1. Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup, 257 calories, 6 PointsPlus® – this is one of my all time favorite soups and it holds up great in the freezer. Make a vegetarian version with white beans instead of the chicken.

2. Slow Cooker Chicken, Kale, & Quinoa Stew, 267 calories, 7 PointsPlus® – if you want a hearty soup that really fills you up, this is the one to make. The combination of chicken thighs, kale, and quinoa is perfect in this thick stew. Make it vegetarian by using chickpeas instead of chicken thighs. Make it Paleo friendly with butternut squash or sweet potato instead of quinoa.

3. Creamy Mushroom Soup, 123 calories, 3 PointsPlus® – this is probably my favorite soup recipe on Slender Kitchen. It’s seriously good. Paired with a salad or sandwich, it can make a great lunch or dinner. I also sometimes use it as pasta sauce. Yum!
