Hello again!

FoodFriday04-10

This week I’ve got some really delicious recipes.

First up, I augmented this fantastic Greek Taco recipe from Mountain Mama Cooks.

Since I am trying to eat healthier and lose weight (doing pretty good so far), I converted this into a salad so I could cram in more of the vegetables and less of the tortillas. I made the recipe exactly as instructed except for the assembly at the end.

The hubs and I loved everything about these! The ground turkey mixture is tasty on its own, with a bit of sauciness from the wine and tomato paste. But my favorite part by far was the tzatziki sauce. It was so creamy and I loved the garlic bite and freshness from the cucumber.

Next up,  I have another stuffed pepper recipe (check out the other two here and here). This time I made Enchilada Stuffed Peppers from Chef In Training.

These were filling and perfect for dinner. The enchilada sauce added just enough sauciness without drowning the ingredients. I did add a bit extra seasoning because I find the canned enchilada sauce to be a bit bland, but at the same time I didn’t feel like making my own.

Next up, Chicken and Lime Soup from Budget Bytes.

I really liked this. It was warm and a bit spicy with a brightness from the lime juice. The hubs said it was kind of like a light chili, and we enjoyed the broth of it versus a thick chili sauce. I think it would be a good soup during the summer because it’s delicious even when it cools to room temperature.

Last up, Thai Turkey Meatballs from ifood real.

The hubs and I agreed the sauce was the star here! It is so flavorful and rich without being heavy. The meatballs were tender and moist from the zucchini.  I served this over brown rice and we both loved it.

That’s all for this Food Friday! See you Monday.
