This is a healthy and delicious casserole for a cold Fall/Winter day! You can substitute the ground turkey for chicken instead, but I absolutely love the pairing of ground turkey and butternut squash together!
Cabbage Miso Soup
This miso soup is fantastic for a cold winters day! Because of all the ingredients it can get pretty salty, so make sure you use reduced or low sodium broth! This recipe can also be easily made vegetarian by swapping out the chicken broth for vegetable broth and leaving out the fish sauce.
Mushroom Barley Risotto
Like all risottos this one takes some time, but it is well worth it! Barley risotto is much easier to get right than rice risottos, although you can still over stir it, it is more forgiving and less likely to become glue-like in texture. For this recipe I used hulled barley, but if you are using pearl barley you may want to use a little less broth, so when you may want to try it as you go, so you don't overcook it!
Creamy Shrimp Pasta
This creamy shrimp recipe is done using almond milk instead of regular milk. This makes it mostly dairy free, as dairy can be a big trigger for a lot of people. There is still Parmesan cheese in it, but Parmesan cheese is known for being low in lactose and many people with acid reflux disease can eat it with no problems.
This is an easy lunch for a weekend! I'll admit it isn't the healthiest thing I could eat, but it's a nice go to when I don't know what to eat, as I tend to have all the ingredients for it. It can also be browned in a skillet for a more even browning, but I personally like it done on my portable electric grill.
Fall Harvest Bowl
This Fall meal is full of healthy and delicious ingredients! Normally my husband shys away from meals without meat in them, but even he really enjoyed this dinner! The dressing really brings it all together for a savory dish.
Herby White Bean Dip
Whenever we have food related events at work, I can really only eat the things that I bring, and this bean dip is perfect for that! The amount in this recipe is meant more for a smaller amount of people, but it can be easily doubled or tripled.
Slow Cooker Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
This soup is a great Fall/Winter staple. It's a super easy and healthy slow cooker meal, that makes enough for the whole family!
Orecchiette with Autumn Vegetables and Turkey
Butternut squash is probably my favorite Fall vegetable, it is so versatile and can be added to lots of dishes. The chewiness of the orecchiette pasta and kale goes great with the softness of a cooked squash, and the Parmesan cheese on top really completes the dish. It makes it a perfect meal for a cool Autumn day!
Banana Oatmeal Cookies
I don't often make desserts, but I was feeling like having some cookies this week! These banana oatmeal cookies, are quick and easy, making it a nice recipe to make even after working all day.
