I absolutely love sharing recipes and meal ideas on the blog.  But if I were to be honest, recipe posts aren’t necessarily my favorite to write.  They just take so much time between the photographing, the exact measurements, all the detail, etc.  But I do it fairly often because some meals are too good not to share!

While I won’t be outlining exact recipes in today’s post, I thought I’d do a roundup of some delicious meals we’ve had lately.  And I promise I’ll share as much detail as possible!

Avocado toast with feta

Avocado toast with feta

I cut a huge piece of sourdough bread in half, toasted it, and topped it with avocado mash and a little bit of feta.  The avocado mash included 1/2 a small avocado, a little lime juice, and S&P.  So much yum!

Zucchini meatballs, roasted Brussels sprouts, and sourdough toast

Zuchinni meatballs

I made this the other night, and it was D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!

I made the “meatballs” using this Skinnytaste recipe.  My only changes were to add an extra clove of garlic and two small jalapenos.  A definite must make!  The roasted Brussels sprouts were quartered, coated in a little olive oil, S&P, and a drizzle of maple syrup, and roasted for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees.  The toast is self-explanatory.

Eggy Banana Bread Oatmeal

I blogged about this last week and had to mention it again because it’s that good!  Comfort in a bowl I tell you.

Veggie and refried black bean enchiladas


This was totally a semi-homemade meal.  My friend Trader Joe’s helped me out a ton!

The enchiladas were pretty typical – tortillas, refried beans, sautéed veggies of choice, and enchilada sauce.  The “cream” sauce was what took the dish from good to great.  It beats a thick layer of real cheese or sour cream any day!

“Creamy” tomato soup with chickpea croutons


This soup recipe comes from my Oh She Glows cookbook (one of my favorites btw!).  You can find the recipe here, but I still highly recommend buying this cookbook.  Yes, it’s a vegan cookbook, BUT all of the recipes are hearty, filling, and so flavorful.  Well worth the investment!

Well, that’s all I have for today!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of delicious food and lots of laughs. Smile

Tell me about your favorite meal lately!  I could honestly talk about food all day long.

    1. They really are! She has an eggplant meatball recipe that I’m going to try out this week. Love Skinnytaste!

  1. Everything looks delicious! I am counting down the days until I have a full kitchen again. We make a lot of beans/rice bowls, veggies with marinara and endless combinations of tomato/mozzarella/avocado/balsamic in our little mini kitchen. I love the idea of chickpea croutons!

    1. It’ll probably be a bit of adjustment to have all that space again when you get back! And i have to say, the meals you’re having now sound so good. 🙂

  2. Wow, Parita… you’ve been busy cooking lately!! Avocado toast is one of my favorites!!! I can’t remember which blog I got the idea from, but lately I’ve been putting S&P, lime juice and paprika on it.. it’s so delicious!! I’ll have to try feta next time. Zucchini meatballs and chickpea croutons looks so yummy as well!

    1. It’s so hot here too! But for some reason, I could eat this all day any day. Love the combo of flavors!

  3. Ah that feta/avocado combo is to die for!!! I’ve been testing out different cheeses to see what I can eat without feeling bloated and feta is high on that list. From what I’ve found, feta & parmesan seem to have the lowest lactose content. My favourite meal so far has been a spinach salad with whatever veggies I have on hand, feta, olive oil & balsamic vinegar–> so simple but perfect in the hot weather!!

    1. Feta is quickly becoming one of my favorite cheeses. Love how you don’t need a ton to get lots of flavor.
