Delicioso White Bean, Fennel & Italian Sausage Soup

This recipe for Delicioso White Bean, Fennel & Italian Sausage Soup is one I found, and adapted, from Cooking Light Magazine. I didn’t change the recipe much, but I did add more fennel (because I love the light anise flavor of fennel a lot lately), and I also increased the amount of white beans from the original recipe, and I omitted the sage and parsley because I forgot to purchase them at the market. Doh!

Other than that, this recipe I’m sharing is pretty much just as it was written in the magazine. I DO NOT take credit for this recipe, but I do take credit for sharing it with you here on Kudos Kitchen in case you missed it in Cooking Light Magazine. I strongly urge you to make this soup. It’s delicious!

Healthy Quinoa Veggie Egg White Cups for a Grab and Go Breakfast

For a while now I’ve been noticing that egg cups and eggs baked in muffin tins have become all the rage. It was after watching a particular video on Facebook that I decided to make my own. The difference you may notice in mine is that I added quinoa to the mix because I’d had some leftover in the fridge and I thought it would be a tasty (and healthy) addition to an already tasty and healthy breakfast option. May I now introduce Healthy Quinoa Veggie Egg White Cups for your eating enjoyment!

Healthy Nutritious Chicken with Strawberry Satay Sauce #SundaySupper

Since a traditional satay sauce is peanut butter based, I thought I’d do a play on a PB & J by adding in season, plump and juicy Florida strawberries to the satay sauce. The result is a sweet and savory dipping sauce which pairs wonderfully well with grilled chicken. To say the kids will love this dish of Chicken with Strawberry Satay Sauce is an understatement! After all, who wouldn’t love a dipping sauce that tastes like a peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwich?

Fresh Healthy Broccoli Salad from Valerie’s Home Cooking Cookbook

The majority of the recipes you’ll find here on Kudos Kitchen are my own original creations. However, from time to time because of my blog I’m approached by publishing houses about doing cookbook reviews. This post (and the recipe for Healthy Broccoli Salad) is one such review. All the opinions I share are 100% my own.

Healthy Southwestern Turkey Taco Stuffed Avocado

If you’re a taco Tuesday type of gal, then you may want to switch things up just a wee little bit by serving these Healthy Southwestern Turkey Taco Stuffed Avocados. If, by chance, you don’t think these are your style because you’d be missing the crunch from a traditional taco shell, then why not crunch a few chips over the top to garnish? This way you still have the crunch you desire, but you’ll also be cutting back on a few of the carbs as well.
