Roast Chicken and Honey Roasted Carrots with few handfuls of spinach. Previously intimidated by whole chickens, but they’re actually super cheap and extremely easy to cook. This meal is homey, delicious and inexpensive.
Simple Herb Crusted Salmon (doing 4 fillets instead of 2) with the arugula salad on this recipe (subbing in spinach). The spinach with simple dressing was fantastic/crave-worthy. The salmon was tasty, but I found the coconut flour/parsley mixture “meh” at best and unnecessary. I’d much prefer to coat the salmon in the dijon and cover with crushed pistachios like this recipe (picture on rigtht).
Supreme Pizza Frittata. Using cast iron skillet Christmas gift for first time. Not hard to do, looks impressive and tastes just like pizza. The arugula on top (not pictured) really made it. Could adjust toppings to preference/availability. Great pizza substitute.
White Chicken Chili. Using Instant Pot version of recipe. Will definitely make again. Solid recipe. Topped with a dollup of yogurt.
For a snack, used leftover salmon fromTuesday on some crackers with yogurt and capers for a light version of lox.
Leftover Chili and leftover pig
Mushroom Mattar Methi Malai. Will make tomato puree with fresh tomatoes. Made this before. Ugly, but filling, flavorful and smells amazing.
Instant Pot Dal Makhani (lentils). Amazing. Cost less than $3 to make. Even better the next day. Using olive oil instead of avocado oil.
