Shepherd’s pie is so delicious, I wish I made it more often. I wanted to create a healthier version and make it taste identical to the original version. This Turkey Shepherd’s Pie is definitely as perfect as it can get for a healthier version. My hubby even said he liked it better than regular shepherd’s pie. So in my book, its a MAJOR win. I really enjoyed it myself too, and the girls had no complaints! The only downfall of making it is it takes more time than my typical 30 minute meals. But on a night where you do have some extra time, or perhaps on the weekend, I hope you give it a try, because you won’t be sorry!

One of the easiest soups on the planet has to be green pea soup. I love making it cause its delicious and so easy, especially when you’re using frozen peas. Since this recipe only has a few ingredients it came together really quickly and you can add different add ins to switch up every serving. As pictured here, I added a bit of yogurt and pine nuts. Other times I might add a bit of crumbled bacon and cheddar cheese. Leftover ham, turkey  or roasted chicken would also be great additions.

I love salmon…its so versatile and delicious. Not to mention all those healthy omega fats! One of my favorite kinds of salmon is wild sockeye. If I can get it fresh (or frozen), its usually the one I’ll reach for. I love the bright color, and the texture is perfect and flaky when its just cooked through. I prepare salmon in a bunch of different ways, with savory sauces and sweet glazes. My preference is usually sweet, but I do really love a savory salmon too.

Tuna noodle casserole is one of the best comfort foods out there. Not sure about you, but I remember having a casserole like this many times as a kid. Something like this, in addition to tuna melts, were in the rotation on a regular basis. I also remember making tuna melts all the time on my own, and toasting them in a toaster oven.  I’m not a huge tuna fan, but prepared like this or in a melt, I’d have it almost any day of the week. I wanted to make this version gluten-free and dairy-free as well but still have the creamy texture as traditional tuna noodle casserole.

Meatballs are comfort food at its best. Have you ever gone to IKEA and had their swedish meatballs? Plus, with the creamy sauce?! Oh my gosh. Hard to beat. But watch out IKEA, these Turkey Swedish Meatballs are just as good, and bonus – they are gluten-free and dairy-free.

A really delicious and easy pasta dish. Which also happens to be vegan and gluten free!  Really happy with how delicious this came out and it came together in under 30 minutes as well. I love that in stores its so much easier to find dairy free and vegan options. Plus, today, they don’t taste that much different from the real thing, so the quality is great too.
