Soup season is well underway, and I for one couldn’t be happier! I am constantly looking for new soup and stew ideas that will warm me from the inside out. This Easy White Chicken Chili is ready in just about 30 minutes, and it can be made as spicy or mild as you would like (we like it SPICY!). Top this soup with jalapeño, avocado, sour cream, cheese, cilantro, lime, tortilla strips or really whatever you want and enjoy!
In the winter months (and sometimes in the summer, too), if I ask my husband what he wants for dinner, I am going to get one of two answers – potato soup or The Best Spicy Chili. I have been making my chili this same way for years, and I have yet to have any better! If you like your food with a kick, you are going to love this recipe! Making this chili takes just about 15 minutes, and then you will just let all of the flavors simmer together. Top it with some sour cream, shredded cheese, green onion or avocado and enjoy it with some crackers or cornbread. Try this one out – you won’t regret it!
I have been making this Easy Fresh Aji Picante for years and my husband and I love to put it on just about anything! I originally found this recipe on Skinny Taste. If you have not checked out all of the amazing recipes that Gina has created at skinnytaste.com, you are really missing out! Making this Colombian hot sauce is as simple as blending the ingredients together. It takes only a few minutes, and the result is a perfectly spicy and fresh sauce that is incredibly versatile. This is a naturally carb free, dairy free, gluten free, vegan and vegetarian sauce, so it is great for most diets!
We recently went on a cruise, and ate (and drank) the whole time we were gone. I had an amazing time, but I came home feeling so bloated and really just gross. I am a meat eater through and through, but sometimes it is nice to give your body a little break and have a meatless day here and there. This Healthy Loaded Vegetable Soup is great for that. It is absolutely delicious, loaded with super nutritious ingredients and it only comes in at 163 calories a serving. If you aren’t watching what you eat, it would be great with a melty grilled cheese on the side!
If you have never had shishito peppers, they are these fantastic little peppers with a mild, sweet and just slightly smoky flavor. Shishitos have a pretty thin skin, so they cook relatively quickly, and because of their convenient size, they are a great bite-sized snack. This Easy Blistered Shishito Peppers recipe will only take about 10 minutes, and it only has 5 simple ingredients. We like to enjoy these as a snack, appetizer or side dish. This recipe also has only 60 calories and 4 net carbs per serving, so it is both delicious and healthy!
I have great news! Only 5 ingredients and 15 minutes is standing between you and these amazing Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies. Run, don’t walk to your kitchen and get started now! No flour or butter is used in these cookies, so the fantastic peanut butter taste stands out in the best way. These cookies also happen to be gluten and dairy free! My only advice is to double the recipe – these don’t last long!
Pasta is by and far my favorite comfort food, but it is (usually) a guilty pleasure. Many pasta sauces are loaded with way too many carbs, calories, unnecessary sugar and preservatives. Pasta sauce is one of those things that is so easy to make, but many of us tend to pick up a jar of the pre-made stuff out of convenience. This Easy & Healthy Tomato sauce will change all of that! This sauce takes only a few minutes of active cooking time, and just 30 minutes to allow all of the flavors to simmer together. After that, you have a delicious homemade tomato sauce that is considerably better for you and better tasting than anything you will find in the grocery store. With only 92 calories and 9 net carbs per serving, this is a sauce that you don’t have to feel bad about!
Cucumber, Tomato and Onion salad is one of my favorite quick and easy summer recipes. It is always so nice to be able to head out to the garden, grab some fresh vegetables and throw a delicious dish together in just a few minutes. This healthy salad uses fresh cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, and a vinaigrette dressing to create the perfect side dish for those hot summer days when no one wants to heat the kitchen up by using the stove. You can toss this together early in the day, stick it in the fridge and have a delicious “salad” ready at dinner time. A serving of this comes in at only 133 calories and 9 net carbs, so this is one flavorful recipe that you won’t feel bad about enjoying! Try it out today!
