If you want something super satisfying or easy for a crowd, try Sweet Potatoes Topped with Black Bean Chili. Add a mixed green salad and call it a delicious meal. Double the amount of chili and you’ll be one happy camper the next day at lunch.
French flageolet beans are buttery and smooth – and can be hard to find. You may substitute navy beans, but try to find the flageolet. The first night, I served this as a side dish. The next day, I sautéed sliced cooked chicken sausage and added it to the leftovers for a hearty main dish. Using the slow cooker means you don’t have to pre-soak the beans.
Easy, quick, elegant – and a bit indulgent. These puffs are addictive, so watch it! For this recipe, use a standard muffin pan. I imagine these could also be made using a mini tart pan for bite-size appetizer puffs. Either way, they are delicious. I served them with stew as a vegetable and roll in one. They would also make a nice meal on their own with mixed grens or other fresh vegetable side. These puffs can be assembled, wrapped in plastic wrap and then frozen before baking. Simply add a few minutes to the baking time if you bake them from frozen. For recipes, read more…
These vegetarian meatballs are super hardy and delicious! They taste great dipped in tomato sauce or pesto. They are also great on the run and they make a perfect lunch. For me, they fall into the same “triple threat” category occupied by the Quinoa Patties – simply satisfying super foods! To cook green lentils for this […]
This recipe for Spicy Thai Basil Chicken is like comfort food. It’s great served as a lettuce wrap (and Paleo!). It’s also tasty served in big bowls over quinoa. Ingredients like fish sauce, soy sauce and hot sauce are good pantry staples to keep around for big flavor across a variety of dishes. Double it if you want any leftovers!
We decided to kick off the new year right with a Dutch Pancake for breakfast. A dish like this is not only fun to make and share, but delicious too. The pancake will puff dramatically while baking, so be sure others are there to witness it when you pull it out of the oven. Serve it with a choice of butter, warm maple syrup, fresh lemon wedges and powdered sugar. Yum.
I like these patties as a savory breakfast or for lunch or dinner with greens. They also grab and go well if you’re on the run. Quinoa is a complete (gluten-free!) protein, so these little patties seriously satisfy. Here are easy directions for making quinoa. 1 cup of uncooked quinoa yields about 4 cups cooked. Use the search function on our site to find other healthy salads, soups and side dishes featuring quinoa. Enjoy!
Yield: One 9-inch tart My friend Debbie wrote the other day to tell me her lemon tree was exploding with lemons. Lucky girl! Deb’s tree has inspired this post for my favorite lemon tart. If life has handed you lemons, make the most of them! You might also want to try the Grilled Lemon Chicken […]
This is an exciting day. About 3 1/2 years ago, I started a blog at getyouryummyback.com (GYYB). Ever since, I’ve been posting recipes weekly for soups, salads, sides, main dishes, starters, breakfast and treats. I’ve highlighted how to cook gluten-free whole grains, tips for the perfect stir-fry and how to grill a turkey. There are now about 250 recipes in the GYYB archive.
I am officially moving all of the GYYB content here to flagstonepantry.com, where I run my business. There are lots of good things in the works at Flagstone Pantry and I look forward to keeping you in the loop on all the shenanigans. Until then, if you are looking for a recipe, simply use the search bar to search by ingredient or by key word such as “main dish” or “muffin”…
