Some delicious healthy dinner ideas:
Stuffed mushrooms – they look loaded but it’s all healthy.
We sautéed spinach, onions and garlic. Then when that was nice and saucy we added about half a cup of nonfat Greek yogurt to the skillet for about thirty seconds then separated the mixture into two huge portabellas and baked them at 350 for 15 minutes. We grilled broccolini and skirt steak and served everything together. Yum I love steak but we only cook it once every couple weeks! Great treat. I could only eat half of what was on my plate.
This weekend we also twisted up the salmon. Spread a thin layer (about half a tablespoon) of trader joes pesto across the top and halved cherry tomatoes before we cooked it.
Tonight was meatless Monday and we made a dinner any college student could make for really cheap!!! Eggplant "pasta" with homemade sauce.
Becky sliced up a little less than a full eggplant (<$2) into thin strips, salted them and laid them out to dry. Two hours later I dabbed off the excess salt and squeezed out the water. The eggplant at this point should feel limp and very noodle-like.
We later were thinking we could've just let them dry out sans salt because there was still a good amount of salt absorbed into the eggplant.
We sautéed cherry tomatoes, several handfuls of spinach, mushrooms, loads of onion and garlic with a splash of almond milk (<$2 for sure in total). Simultaneously we sautéed the eggplant noodles then combined when both were hot , eggplant crispy and tomatoes squishy.
Garnished with a handful of arugula, nutritional yeast and a sprinkle of Parmesan. So good, light and also filling! I was a happy clam
