Citrus-Dijon Salmon En Papier Style

This has to be the easiest thing in the entire world and can be done a ton of ways. And it is speedy – 5 min of prep and 20 in the oven and you are done. Usually, I will do the veg in with the fish, but since I was going to the gym, I thought that it would save some time to slow roast my veg separate on the side and stick it in while I was at the gym. This is super to do for a dinner party since you can cook everything in individual packets and just plate it by slicing the foil down the center to serve. It is also pretty failproof, it is hard to overcook it in the oven and it does not stink up the house like pan-frying the salmon does.

For this, I just did the salmon in some pepper, dijon, thyme, and clementine slices. I roasted the potatoes on the side and some cauliflower and added some dijon to both halfway through cooking.

Roasted Cauliflower Frittata

I am finally making the frittata that I saw on emmycooks blog. I made some changes by lightening it a bit and adding some more veg, but this was for no other reason other than preference and not wanting to bust open a single serve yogurt for this. Hers looks amazing as is!

I roasted my cauliflower the other day so this was pretty speedy.

Fusilli with Broccoli Rabe, Roasted Tomatoes and Basil-Mint Pesto

I could not decide which foods to make from my pre-prep and then this won out. It is a riff on this, but I wanted more veg and color, so added the broccoli rabe and tomatoes, both which I roasted because I seem to be obsessed with roasting stuff.

I made the pesto yesterday, but this is just as speedy to make it all at once while the veg are roasting.

Shrimp Sandwiches with Chipotle-Avocado Spread

I got this recipe in my inbox from the gojee.com and it looked pretty fantastic. I made a few changes, but this is pretty easy and leaves me with some leftover to make fajitas later this week. Strike that, I am just eating the sandwiches all week.  They are really that good. This recipe makes like 4.

Baked Sweet Potatoes with Chickpeas, Tomatoes, and Spinach

The husband was sad that he was called out here for coming home late yesterday. But I had wanted to go to the gym earlier – my shows were on! He redeemed today by starting this while I worked late today.

I saw a recipe on thekitchn.com for a coconut curried chickpeas over sweet potatoes (theirs is linked at the end of post). That did not appeal totally. So this is what I came up with, it is sorta Moroccan-Mediteranean in flavor profile, like southern Spain in the cold mountains or something like that.  And while I don’t normally post calories, this whole ginormous plate clocks in at 670. So healthy, low cal, check and check. Oh and it is super speedy, other than baking the potatoes. Super tasty too.

Super Healthy Vegetable Two Bean Chili

Ok, so the title may not make you want make it. Healthy? Blah. But this is good. And Healthy. And Easy. And perfect if you are the type to do a food cleanse, but still like to eat. I don`t do food cleanses anymore, but healthy eating is always a good thing. This is definitely healthy and is pretty unprocessed. This comes together pretty quick, and you can either do a slow cook, or get it done in about a half an hour. This was done slow.

Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

I think we are now scrapping Bordeaux/Marseilles for Shanghai and Beijing for May!! Eek!

And tonight I am making Stuffed mushrooms and roasted brussel sprouts. I skipped the balsamic that was in my plan, but used the zucchini and onions I cut the other day. Also got rid of some feta that was hanging out.

ZOMG! This is such a plating/ picture fail and it is soooooo effing good. Sad. This is going on rotation. Don’t skip the Sundried tomatoes. Srsly!
