This week we had a good mix of new-to-us recipes and old classes. Here’s what was in the mix:
Saturday– Chicken Curry with Naan
During our honeymoon in South Africa, Michael and I took a cooking class in the Bo Kaap area of South Africa. We learned a lot about the history of Cape Town and the different languages and cuisines that make up its culture. We went to the instructor, Lekka’s house and made chicken curry, samosas, and roti. Making it again took us right back to our wonderful honeymoon.
Sunday– Cilantro Lime Drumsticks with Sweet Potato Chips
Chicken is great, but plain chicken breasts can be so boring! These drumsticks were so flavorful and easy to make! We typically make sweet potato fries, but decided to cut them like chips and I’m so glad we did! They had an awesome crunch.
Monday-Whole Wheat Pesto and Tomato Pizza with Caesar Salad
One of my favorite tips for staying healthy is making high-fat and high-calorie foods healthier. This pizza was made with homemade, whole wheat pizza dough and topped with pesto, low fat mozzarella, and tomatoes. My brother was over for dinner so with the pizza we had salad with his favorite dressing.
We had sauerkraut in the fridge leftover from a lunch we made the week before, so to use it up we made this recipe with chicken sausage.
Wednesday– Cauliflower Rice Burrito Bowl
I have nothing against carbohydrates, but to mx it up I made burrito bowls with cauliflower rice. All you need to do is chop up cauliflower florets, pulse them in the food processor, then sauté them with olive oil, salt, and pepper. To the bowls I added black beans, salsa, Greek yogurt, avocado, cheese, tomato, pepper, and onion.
Thursday– Crock Pot Creamy Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese
Crock pot meals are so great because you toss ingredients in the night before, start the crock pot in the morning, and have dinner ready by night time! Paired with a grilled cheese, this was the perfect comfort food dinner.
