Zucchini and Tomato Tian

I’ve seen so many people make these before and I really wanted to make one for myself. They look so pretty and it’s not that hard to make the design – it honestly took less than 10 minutes to put together. So I have alternating slices of zucchini and tomato, then I drizzled a bit…

Vibrant Pasta Salad

I know I’ve made pasta salad posts before – they’re just so easy and yummy and versatile. This one had corn, red bell pepper, green beans (that I cooked with the pasta when it was almost done), and kalamata olives. The dressing was olive oil, red wine vinegar, spicy mustard, salt, pepper and a bit…

Spiralized Zucchini Salad

I almost forgot that I had a spiralizer cause I haven’t used it in so long. I made a really nice thai dressing to put on my zucchini noodles. It had peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, ground ginger powder, lime juice and sriracha. I added some carrot slices for extra crunch, but also some…

Asian Chicken Meatballs, Roasted Veggies and Salad

I haven’t made a full meal like this in a long time. The main protein was these chicken meatballs which turned out really well. The actual meal mixture was just ground chicken, an egg, panko bread crumbs, grated ginger and sriracha. I made meatballs and baked them for about 15 minutes. After that, I brushed…

Black Bean Patties

Hello! It’s been a really long time since I’ve made a post. I was away on vacation then I was a little under the weather, but now I’m back in the kitchen!  I made these black bean patties which turned out really well. They’re super easy and delicious. So you start by mashing a can…

Triple C Salad

Couscous, cucumber and chickpeas. Simple ingredients, delicious combination. I honestly love couscous based salads cause it’s so easy and quick and versatile. So this salad had that delicious c-base, plus a dressing of red wine vinegar, lime juice, oregano, chili flakes and parsley. I didn’t even need salt or pepper this time.  It was so…

Roasted Red Peppers

I’ve wanted to make these for a while but I think I was too scared to try. I’m happy I did it though. And they’re super easy too. If you’ve never roasted peppers before, they’re super easy. You just throw some peppers (whole, with seeds and all) on the grill and let them cook. You…

Mixed Salad

I really didn’t know what to call this salad. I used the word mixed because it turned out to be a mix of many different things.  I got iceberg lettuce, cabbage, cucumber, bell pepper, dried cranberries, sliced olives, chickpeas and avocado. The only dressing I put was a little walnut oil, red wine vinegar, salt…

Bean Salad and Veggie Balls

I’ve had both of these things before, but this time it was a little different. Plus I added some avocado cause I’m a little obsessed. I really just love bean salad. This one had black beans, red bell pepper, fresh corn, cucumber, cilantro, lime juice, red wine vinegar, salt, sriracha and sugar. The veggie balls,…

Quinoa Salad

I was in the mood for a light dinner, so I made a nice and healthy salad with quinoa. I cooked it up then added some frozen corn and edamame afterwards and thawed them with the residual heat. I let that cool down then added olives and cucumber. I made a little dressing of olive…

Sauteed Kale, Apple and Edamame

This meal actually started out as a salad from last night’s dinner (without the edamame). It was the kale, chopped apple and a simple dressing of olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. There was quite a bit leftover and I didn’t want to eat the exact same thing again. So I just put everything…

Couscous Salad with Beans

I love couscous. This will be my 6th couscous recipe on my blog now. I just had some leftovers in the fridge, so I made a simple, mexican inspired salad. I used blackbeans, edamame, parsley, lime juice, honey, salt and pepper, and sriracha on top. I know it is so easy, but I thought it…
