I love reading Friday favorites posts when some of my favorite bloggers link up to recipes from other blogs – it’s great for inspiration and overloading my poor Google Reader.
Here’s what I’ve tried recently:
Low-Fat Blueberry Scones [Skinnytaste]
I mentioned that I had blueberries to use up, and these scones were pretty good nutritionally – but the taste was only so-so. It was the first Skinnytaste recipe I’ve tried that wasn’t a home run.
Dinner last Thursday was comprised of tofu and leftover roasted veggies – I made peanut sauce for the tofu with the simplest recipe ever:
4 ingredient healthy peanut sauce [Daily Garnish]
Emily’s recipe was incredibly simple and made dinner come together in about 20 minutes.
My crustless egg cups/quiches with avocado toast [Confessions of a Chocoholic]:
I made a second batch after enjoying the first ones so much – and seeing how great they were nutritionally! I used a whole package of frozen spinach this time around and made 12 (using 2 whole eggs + 8 whites). I’ve read about avocado toast on Bianca’s blog and had one on it’s last legs – why would anyone ever use butter again?
Oh my gosh, this one is so simple – why haven’t I tried it before?
Almond meal/flour in greek yogurt [italktofood]:
I saw this on Aubrey’s blog several times before trying it myself – and wish I wouldn’t have waited! The almond meal is a great alternative to cereal or yogurt, which can be too crunchy – it adds protein and healthy fats and an amazing flavor.
Layered Mexican Pizza Lasagna [Peas and Crayons]
I got this idea from Jenn’s blog a while back and it was the perfect opportunity to use it when I made beef enchiladas for the rest of my family. My veggie dish had crumbled tempeh, three kinds of peppers, mushrooms, enchilada sauce, corn tortillas, and reduced fat cheddar. So satisfying!
Fish tacos thrown together from Mexican leftovers and extra fish from an Italian restaurant the husband and I went to Friday night. Quick, easy, delicious. Like I said, I could eat Mexican at least once a day.
Hippie Cookies [Running To the Kitchen]
After Gina eluded to these cookies and didn’t share the recipe until Friday, I had to try them right away!
I made a few changes (less oil, more applesauce, subbed in date syrup for some maple syrup, forgot the lemon zest) – but they were delicious and packed with wholesome ingredients. My husband asked why I don’t make “normal” cookies, but ate 3 of these anyway.
After I get a workout in, I’m planning on making some of Laura’s [Sprint 2 The Table] zucchini bread oatmeal.
What’s the best recipe you’ve tried recently?
