Weekly Recipes Worth Sharing

Standard

Happy Sunday, everyone! It’s that time of the week again, here is a post of all the recipes (dinner & non-dinner) that I made this week and wanna share!

First up:

Greek Turkey Burger Sliders with Tzatziki Sauce

I found this recipe from The Healthy Helper’s blog

I chose to eliminate the onion because I’m not a fan of them but I still think they were really tasty! To cook them I used this ingenious trick that a girl I’m friends with on Instagram posted! I baked the mini burgers in a muffin tin!

And baked them for approximately 15 minutes.

Here is the recipe for the Tzatziki sauce from Healthy Helper’s blog.

This sauce recipe is enough for one. I made a larger batch of it by using a container of Greek yogurt, a whole cucumber, lots of dill, a splash or two of lemon juice and a squirt of the Dijon mustard!

I forgot to buy tools so I used half pieces of gluten free bread. I was also out of lettuce so the burger just sat alone on the bread with some Tzatziki. I honestly think it still tasted pretty phenomenal!!!

Next up is Cauliflower Pizza Crust topped with Kale & Mushrooms

So I found this recipe from foodiemcbooty.com. There is a vegan crust recipe option. I tried both with the flax egg sub and the eggs. Both tasted really good but the flax egg sub took way longer for it to get hard. I’m not vegan so the next time I make this I’ll be sure just to make it with the eggs. I bake them two ways; one with kale, mushrooms & goat cheese and the other with just kale and mushrooms.

Despite the longer cook time with the flax egg crust, we ate it all 😍

Thursdays recipe was provided compliments of feedmecolor’s blog

Garlic and Ginger Bok Choy, Mushrooms & Eggplant

This is exactly what the title suggests; chopped garlic & ginger mixed with diced bok Choy, mushrooms and eggplant.

I used a regular eggplant and a regular sized head of bok Choy (which doesn’t make any real difference) and served it over rice noodles. I know the picture doesn’t look appealing but let me tell you, it was an amazing vegan/vegetarian dish. I went back for seconds and nearly licked my plate clean πŸ˜‹

That kinda wraps it up as far as recipes to share for the week. I made chicken stir fry one night but I have shared that recipe in a previous post. Friday night I subbed in a bowling league (uh, after that terrible game I’m pretty sure they’ll never be asking me back again). I did bake some yummy stuff but I’m going to save those recipes for a separate post!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

  1. Ok, so I hope I am doing this right… LOL I was trying to find a way to comment on your little Greek burger sliders specifically. Anyway, super cute idea and that would be awesome for a dinner party appetizer. πŸ™‚

  2. Thank you for sharing my Cauliflower Crust recipe! I’m glad you liked it as much as I do. You’re right, the recipe works just as well with a regular egg as it does with a flax egg. It just depends on your diet needs and/or how long you’re willing to wait. Your pizzas look wonderful!
