Andouille Sausage, Kale, and Root Vegetable Bake

Andouille Sausage, Kale, and Root Vegetable Bake

One dish recipes are some of my favorites and I have always loved the simple combination of sausages and veggies. The sausages impart great flavor into the roasted veggies and it makes a full meal without having to dirty up any other dishes. For this version I used Andouille chicken sausages which are packed with rich flavor from chile powder, paprika, cumin, black pepper, and garlic. Then I paired it with red onions, kale, rainbow carrots, and celery root. (You could use any combination of vegetables you like.) Baked in the oven for about 35 minutes and dinner is ready.

Sunday Slow Cooker: White Chicken Chili

Sunday Slow Cooker:  White Chicken Chili

This recipe. Yum. I could eat it every night. Beans, chicken breast, and lots of spice and tang from a yummy homemade green salsa. I like to pack mine with cilantro, onions, more jalapenos, avocado, and a touch of cream for serving and then always freeze up leftovers in individual containers for quick lunches. I also adore using sering this over rice, couscous, baked potatoes, and spaghetti squash.

Friday Five: Food Finds!

Friday Five: Food Finds!

Every once in awhile I like to share new grocery products that I have discovered and fallen in love with. Since it is so easy to fall into a rut when it comes to food, sometimes finding a new healthy or low calorie food can help you stay on track and beat diet boredom. Here are some of my new favorites? What are yours?

1. Eat Well Embrace Life Other Bean Hummus, 40-60 calories per 2 tbsp., 1-2 PointsPlus®

This new hummus is made of alternative beans including lentils, edamame, black beans, and white beans. Anything but a chickpea. It comes in tons of great flavors including Beet, Red Lentil Chipotle, Wasabi Edamame with Ginger, and my personal favorite – Zesty Sriracha Carrot.

2. MorningStar Farms Chipotle Black Bean Crumbles, 70 calories per 1/2 cup, 2 PointsPlus®

Since the Chiptole Black Bean burger is one of my favorites from Morningstar, I wasn’t surprised that I loved the veggie crumbles in this flavor. They make a great taco, burrito, or Mexican inspired dish and are really delicious with eggs.

Israeli Salad

Israeli Salad

I love a good Israeli salad and it is something I always try to order at a Middle Eastern restaurant. Normally an Israeli salad is a combination of Persian cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, lots of parsley, lemon, and olive oil. Some versions add mint, dill, or other spices; but my favorite ones use Za’atar – a blend of thyme, sesame seeds, and other spices. This simple salad makes a great side dish and will keep in the fridge for a few days.

Apple Pie and Almond Butter Chia Seed Pudding

Apple Pie and Almond Butter Chia Seed Pudding

I am still in love with chia seeding pudding and constantly trying to figure out new ways to eat it. One thing I have been enjoying with the cold weather is adding a warm element to my chia seed pudding. This simple apple pie version uses a quickly microwaved apple topping to warm everything up. It’s delicious and good enough for breakfast, a snack, or dessert.

Sunday Slow Cooker: Beef Encebollado

Sunday Slow Cooker: Beef Encebollado

Beef encebollado is a traditional dish that is especially popular in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic but can be found across Latin America. Since it is traditionally made with a tougher cut of beef, it’s a perfect nominee for the slow cooker and if you love onions, you will fall in love with this dish. It’s relatively simple – tons of sliced onions, oregano, vinegar, garlic, and some beef broth. That’s it. Some people like to add a touch of sugar, a Sazon seasoning pack, bell peppers, or tomatoes; but I personally prefer sticking to just the steak and onions.

Slow Cooker: Beef Encebollado
Servings: 6
Serving Size: 6 oz.
Nutritional Info: 223 calories, 5g of fat, 7g of carbohydrates, 1g of fiber, 37g of protein, 3g of sugar
