I love easy stews. They are perfect for busy weeknights. The flavors in this greek turkey sausage stew are amazing. Mild sausage with onion, green pepper and greens, then topped with feta and olives?! If you love salty and savory things, this is the dish for you.  For stews like this, I tend to use store bought raw turkey sausage. I squeeze it out of the casing and break it up like you would ground meat. For dishes that contain only a few ingredients, its also great as it really flavors the stew without adding a bunch of seasoning.

These waffle falafels totally won meatless monday the other night! The girls loved them, and were filling their pitas with everything they liked. Great alternative to taco night, so I’ll definitely be doing it more often. These came out so much better than baked falafels. Much more crispy thanks to the waffle iron, they browned up really nicely. I highly recommend doing them this way instead of baking them in the oven.

Miso obsessed over here. This recipe is all about the miso dressing. While the tofu and veggie bowl itself was amazing, the recipe I’m posting below is for the miso dressing.

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.
