It’s no secret that I’m a terrible meal planner. Terrible. But I’m always willing to try new, tasty recipes. Here are 3 really yummy ones I’ve made in the past month that are definitely worth a try! They’re not necessarily “healthy” per se, but they’re really good and it’s fewer calories than going out to eat. At least you know what’s in your food!
- HONEY-CARAMELIZED ONION TART
This recipe is SERIOUSLY good! The onions take awhile to caramelize—but if you felt inclined, you could always prep the onions & bacon first. I substituted sour cream for crème fraîche and it was still delicious (honestly, I have no idea what that is). My only suggestion would be to add about 1 tablespoon of honey to the cream mixture. Isn’t it gorgeous? It’s as good as it looks.
- CHICKEN POT PIE (Recipe makes 2 Pot Pies)
This hearty, veggie-packed Chicken Pot Pie is a family pleaser. The Pastry Puff crust is perfectly flaky, while the made-from-scratch filling is easy & totally worth it—no condensed soups in this Pot Pie! The best part (aside from the taste) is that this recipe is freezable! It also makes good leftovers, which is great because I’m usually not a leftover fan. Trust me, it’s a win.
- BAKED GNOCCHI WITH CHICKEN (Double It)
This meal is REALLY good, and incredibly easy to make. To keep it more reasonable (or vegetarian-friendly) the chicken can easily be left out. I even added broccoli in the absence of chicken, and it soaked up the sauce beautifully. It’s another dish that makes great leftovers, too, but definitely double the recipe if you want leftovers. And I’m sure there’s an easy way to make this freezer-meal-friendly, so if you try it let me know how it turns out!
