Loaded Turkey & Veggie Chili

A little bit of a cheat since beans really aren’t part of my diet plan, but I need them in my chili. 😂 I made some cheese crisps to use as chips and topped the chili with sour cream, cheese and avocado. 😋  Loaded Turkey & Veggie Chili Servings: 6 Cooking Time: 2 Hours 30Continue reading “Loaded Turkey & Veggie Chili”

Vegetarian Coconut Dahl

I was gifted these beautiful Red Lentils by a friend, so I decided to make my version of Dahl (Dal, Daal, Dahl), an Indian Curry. It’s really hearty and delicious! I don’t make very many vegetarian/vegan dishes, but this is definitely one of my favorites. Vegetarian Coconut Dahl  Servings: 5 Cooking Time: 30 Minutes 1Continue reading “Vegetarian Coconut Dahl”

Curried Goat

This was my first time cooking and eating goat, which is odd because we’ve been raising them for years. I’d always heard that it was really gamey, so I made sure to marinade it a good long while. It was amazing and so tender. I’ll definitely be making it again. The turmeric yellow rice andContinue reading “Curried Goat”

Italian Venison Sausage Soup

Still sticking with lighter dishes to lose a few pounds, so carbs are at a minimum. I love cooking with game meat. Venison especially is really lean and delicious.

Chicken & Vegetable Curry

Day 36 of the #PantryChallenge  I had a lot of the Curried Sweet Potato Soup I made last night left over so I repurposed it. Chicken & Vegetable Curry is what’s for dinner! I normally add cauliflower, sugar snap peas and zucchini but didn’t have any on hand.  Chicken & Vegetable Curry Servings: 5 CookingContinue reading “Chicken & Vegetable Curry”

Curried Sweet Potato Soup

Day 35 of the #PantryChallenge  Hey look! It’s soup…again. 😂 Still can’t really do the whole solid food thing, so immersion blender to the rescue! I love pureed soups and I added a bit more peppers to try and help clear out my sinuses.  It could have done with a splash of heavy cream, butContinue reading “Curried Sweet Potato Soup”
