“Friday Favorites” is a popular blogging concept featured throughout the healthy living blogging community. This Friday (though I normally do not post on Fridays), I decided to do my own version of my Friday Favorites. This list of favorites includes several of my favorite recipes that I have bookmarked in the past (some many months ago!) and finally cooked, and a new favorite from one of my go-to cookbooks. I hope you enjoy!
Friday Foodie Favorites: The “Bookmarked” Edition
Kale Fried Rice
Once I finally realized how much I love kale, I decided to make a recipe that I had bookmarked all the way back in December. I made Kristin’s Kale Fried Rice and absolutely loved it! This is definitely a “must make” superfood dish!
Curry Egg Salad Sandwich
It is no secret that I have a major thing for anything curry! So when I came across this recipe for Curry Egg Salad, I knew I had to make it! Boy, am I glad that I did.
The original recipe states to serve it on a bed of Romaine lettuce, but I chose to eat mine in the more traditional sandwich form. It was super delicious. I really enjoyed the curry flavor, and I already have plans to make it again soon!
Spicy Eggplant and Okra Bake
I made my own version of Heather’s Spicy Eggplant and Okra Bake for a healthy and satisfying vegan dinner. I left out the hemp seeds and almond milk, and used part of a jar of leftover curry sauce that I had in my fridge instead of the spicy ketchup. Though it was an adaptation from the original recipe, the results were fantastic!
Mexican Barley Salad
I mentioned on Wednesday that I made a Mexican Barley Salad. To make this salad, I followed Anne’s recipe, but made some slight adaptations. First, I made a smaller batch since I was only cooking for myself. I also decided to use black-eyed peas in the place of the black beans. The vegetables that I used included red onions, corn, and red and orange peppers. This was one tasty and filling dish.
On Tuesday night I made Masala Burgers from the Everyday Happy Herbivore cookbook. I absolutely love all three of the Happy Herbivore’s cookbooks, and cannot recommend them enough. Like every other dish that I have made from these cookbooks, these burgers were fantastic and wonderfully seasoned!
So there you have it! A few of my foodie favorites from the past couple of weeks!
