Meatball Soup

Posted on

This just moved to the top of my favorite soup list.


Thanks, Candice Kumai and Pretty Delicious.


That’s a lotta meatballs.  Pretty basic:  onions, carrots, chicken broth, and tomato paste.  I’m not sure what made it almost buttery-tasting, but it was delish.  The meatballs are lean ground turkey and kind of a pain to roll, but totally worth it in the end.  Don’t forget to add some zucchini.


What’s the secret super-awesome ingredient you ask?  Rice.  So homey and so healthy.

CK suggests topping with a slice of avocado, but since Cinco de Mayo I’ve had so many I think my body is beginning to reject them.

Sloppy Joe Stir-Fry Slaw

Posted on

Here’s a lesson in not judging.

Especially when you hear the ingredients:

8 ounces of lean ground turkey

12 ounce bag of broccoli slaw

1 cup Hunt’s Manwich Sauce

Oops.  I just realized I used the whole can.  Well, maybe my servings were more than 136 calories like Hungry Girl said, but they were SO good.   The recipe didn’t call for it, but how can you have a sloppy joe without a bun?   I used a 100-calorie sandwich thin.  That still qualifies as under 300 and Lisa Lillien’s book is called 300 Under 300, so what gives?  I’ll tell you.  This section of the book is for trios.  That’s it:  3-ingredient recipes.   Seriously, anyone can cook and you should be ashamed of yourself each time you hit the drive-thru.

Meatball Hero

Posted on

Where I come from this is a sub, or maybe even a hoagie.  I see meatball hero and I break out into song with jukebox hero, da na na na na na, juke box hero.

Anyway, you’ll never guess what’s inside there.

Well, maybe you could guess that it’s half ground sirloin and half ground turkey, but you might not notice the pureed chickpeas.

As if that’s not enough of a reason to try these, the sauce is homemade too.  Putting a grated carrot into your marinara isn’t so far-fetched, but this is the first time I’ve ever added a grated apple.

This recipe was in the summer 2008 edition of Hallmark Magazine.    I know.  Who knew Hallmark had a magazine?  Had being the operative word there.  I don’t think it’s around anymore.
