Despite the fact that I’ve been cooking a lot of awesome shit lately (and even photographing it afterwards), it’s been ages since I did a What I Ate Wednesday post. So here are some cool new recipes I’ve tried over the last few months.
Thanks to Jenn @ Peas and Crayons for hosting.
I added some grilled chicken strips to this one to increase the calories and make it more filling. With lentils, quinoa, chicken and lots of healthy fats, this was really satisfying and yummy.
This recipe is really the best of both worlds – comfort food with lots of vegetables, which I don’t always get enough of.
I’m using the Food Network’s picture of this lasagna because mine was so ugly, I couldn’t bear to have it mar an otherwise pretty post. Given that this recipe is like 80% cheese, it’s not surprising that it tasted heavenly. I need more asiago cheese in my world.
I’m not crazy about lamb but Josh loves it so we make it occasionally. With this recipe, I prepared the lamb a little differently; first, I breaded it and then I baked it instead of grilling it (I have a grill but it’s tiny so it’s a pain in the ass to cook multiple servings of meat on it).
This might be my favourite recipe ever. It’s supposed to make 6-8 servings but Josh and I crushed, like, half the pot the first night we made it – it’s just that good.
Mascarpone and Strawberry Tarts
And, finally, a dessert recipe that is dirt easy but will make you super popular when you bring these bad boys to potlucks:
- 36 mini Tenderflake tarts
- 1 package of strawberries, sliced
- 475 grams mascarpone cheese
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- Bake tarts according to package directions
- Mix sugar and cheese in a bowl. Let sit for a few minutes
- Once tarts have cooled, fill each with a tablespoon of cheese and top with strawberry slices
Until next time (which could very well be three months from now) – Happy WIAW!
