Winter time is the worst time to get motivated to cook healthy food at home! It is so easy in the summer to grill out a delicious meal and use all the fresh produce readily available. In the winter we try and keep to super simple, one pan dishes that take very little time!
Let us preface this post by saying we are not food photographers, but here are some shots including the recipe of our favorite go-to meals! Also, can you tell we love Skinnytaste!? Some of these recipes are exclusive to her cookbooks, but if you want you can easily search her blog by ingredient here.
Skinnytaste Quick Gnocci Bolognese - This one is exclusive to her new One and Done cookbook, but I linked a copy of the recipe. My all time favorite pasta sauce is a bolognese and this one comes together in minutes!
Thai Tilapia - This one I Just made up but you just cook the fish (I like tilapia) in a casserole style dish and pour over it a can of coconut milk blended with 2 Tsps Thai green chili paste. I cooked at 400 degrees for 18 min and serviced with sauteed kale and homemade risotto.
Skinnytaste Red Lentil Soup - This was a super quick one and is a great alternative to buying canned soup. I made this up on the weekend and it took about 30 min and was a great lunch!
No Fail Buffalo Chicken Breasts - No recipe here either I just take thin cut chicken breasts and dredge them in beaten eggs and then Panko and oven bake them for 20 min at 400 degrees. As soon as you take them out put Frank's Red hot and feta/blue cheese over then and put them on low broil for 2 more minutes. THE BEST!
Skinnytaste Fish Florentine - This has to be my all time favorite from the list. I made this last week and even Zach was blown away! Such a simple addition to when we already plan on just making fish in the oven. The dish called for red pepper but I used a can of drained diced tomatoes instead.
Karissa's "Throw Everything In a Bowl" Bowl-- Ok, not the prettiest but so tasty, easy, and delicious! Add chicken or shrimp to a pan with sweet potato, broccoli, grape tomatoes, peppers, onions (really, whatever veggies you love and have) lightly coat in EVOO and chili lime flavoring (from Trader Joes or your favorite seasoning) pop in the over 425 for 25 add to quinoa and top with feta, and sriracha ranch (also Trader Joes)-- the bomb!
