Healthy Recipe Round Up #4 #fooddonelight


I have some great recipes lined up for you this week  from my fellow food bloggers.  I had such a hard time narrowing down my very long list of healthy food finds.  If you see a recipe you like, be sure to pop over to that blog and let them know.  We, bloggers, absolutely love to hear from you.  It is really nice to know someone reads what we write.  Without further ado, here are this weeks 10 healthy recipes.

Spicy Zucchini Fritters with Guacamole #twofoodies&pupTwo Foodies & a Pup – Zucchini Fritters with Guacamole

I love that these  fritters are made with zucchini and cooked in a skillet rather than deep-fried.  The guacamole just puts it over the top for me.  What a great appetizer.

shrimp, avocado corn salad #gimmesomeovenGimme Some Oven – Shrimp, Avocado & Corn Salad

I  just love the Buttermilk  Pesto dressing for this salad.  The corn is actually dry roasted to give it extra flavor and crunch.  Gorgeous & healthy!

Farro Salad with Herb Vinairgrette #passportsandpancakesPassports and Pancakes – Farro Salad with Herb Vinaigrette

I recently bought farro but havent’ tried it yet.  This salad will be the perfect introduction for us. Once I saw the arugula and feta cheese; I was sold.  There is such complexity to this salad.  A true party of flavors.

Lentil Banana Muffin Lean Green BeanThe Lean Green Bean – Lentil Banana Muffins

You probably know I have a thing for lentils.  So, of course, as soon as I saw muffins with lentils in them I was intrigued.  The addition of bananas, peanut butter and cinnamon just sealed the deal for me.  Great Muffins.

Black Bean & Sun Dried Tomato Lasanga #carriesexperimentalkitchen

Carrie’s Experimental Kitchen – Black Bean & Sun Dried Tomato Lasanga

So happy to find an innovative way to put beans in a dish.  I love that Carrie mixed them with lasagna noodles, cottage cheese and mozzarella.  This dish screams healthy comfort food.

Black Forest Pie #wonkywonderfuWonky Wonderful – Black Forest Pie

Chocolate and cherries are one of my favorite flavor combinations.  Fresh cherries are in the filing as well as one of my favorite ingredients, Greek Yogurt.  What is not to like about this pie?

Baked Chickpeas #tickling plates

Tickling Palates – Baked Chickpeas

Baked Chickpeas are a popular snack in India and remind my husband of home.  I find Indian spices are so seductive.  This snack would last for about 1 minute in my house.

Braised Chicken Roti N RiceRoti N Rice – Braised Chicken with Dark Soy Sauce and Mushrooms

It was the dark soy that I gravitated to in this recipe.  We have a bottle in our pantry that we like to use.  It has a slightly more pungent flavor than regular soy sauce.  Braising the chicken in Chinese flavors makes it irresistible.

Amuse Your Bouche – Leek, Feta & Bulgar Wheat Patties

I love patties; pretty much any type of patty.  I have been trying to widen our use of grains and the bulgar in this recipe seems like a great way to do that.  Lunch would feel so special with these patties.

Chickpea Salad baltic maidBaltic Maid – Puerto Rican Chickpea Salad

The vibrant colors of this salad drew me in.  It is loaded with a rainbow of vegetables and dressed lightly with a cumin, red wine vinaigrette.  It would be the perfect side dish with chicken or a nice light lunch.

I hope you have enjoyed this weeks recipes.  Please be sure to let these talented food bloggers know if you like their recipes.  We all love to share our passion with healthy food with you.
