Poached Chicken & Grape Salad

Poached Chicken & Grape Salad
Today my Hubby and I enjoyed a delicious poached chicken and grape dish. I was in the mood for a kind of Waldorf salad, but didn’t want to go to the store so I used what I had in the kitchen. Trying to keep it light I used less sour cream and mayonnaise and more Greek yogurt. I love getting little bites of cool, crunchy and sweet all in one. We ate them in little Boston Bibb cups but I think a grainy bread would be great too. We will definitely be having this for lunch tomorrow too!  Continue reading

Red Lentil Pasta with Brie & Toasted Pine Nuts

This meatless pasta reminds me of a meal I had in Italy a few years ago…everything tastes so fresh! It’s the perfect mid-week meal that’s both hearty and tasty…Nutritionally, this red lentil bean-based pasta has a single ingredient (organic red lentil flour), and is packed with 13 grams of protein in every serving. Heidi turned me on to this pasta and I’m now a convert…with a perfect al-dente bite, it pairs well with any sauce thrown its way! Continue reading

Loaded Sweet Potato Planks

This is one of those versatile plates that makes a great appetizer or a side…top it with a fried egg and make it breakfast…or it’s also great served as a Meatless Meal…the Sriracha Aioli adds just that nice bit of heat that can be pumped up or lowered depending on how you like it. Knife and fork not always required…. Continue reading

Chicken Lo Mein

I received a BIG box of farm-fresh vegetables…so big that we had an abundance of veggie meals day after day. Some of them made it into this tasty dish. Chunks of marinated chicken breasts, freshly diced zucchini, green beans, carrots, onion, red & yellow peppers and asparagus stir-fried and served over lo mein noodles with a deliciously thick broth…Be prepared to serve the family a second helping!
