Chef Meg's Easiest Recipes

By , SparkPeople Blogger
This Labor Day, take some time off from cooking. I'm enjoying one last day of summer, and I hope you are, too.

Here are some of my favorite easy recipes. Enjoy!

Chef Meg's Spinach-Berry Salad
Strawberries are delicious combined with tender spinach and crunchy toasted almonds.
Chef Meg's "Fried" Cheese Sticks
Fried cheese is one of those foods that's so good and yet so bad for you! Chef Meg cut the grease and used a light string cheese to recreate this pub favorite.
Taco Soup (Chef Meg's Makeover)
Chef Meg cut the sodium on this hearty soup by swapping taco seasoning for three spices you already have on hand. There's a secret ingredient (garbanzo beans) that helps add fiber and thicken our Taco Soup!
Boneless Hot Wings (Chef Meg Approved)
Fried, battered, dripping sauce--hot wings are calorie bombs!
Here, boneless skinless chicken is coated in hot sauce and dredged in breadcrumbs for a tasty game-night appetizer.
Linguine with Spicy Shrimp Sauce (Chef Meg's makeover)
Chef Meg Galvin turned this member-submitted recipe into a hearty entree that's bursting with flavor by reducing the amount of oil used and changing some of the cooking techniques to maximize taste.
Chef Meg's Simple Quinoa and Vegetables
This protein-rich vegetarian recipe is simple to make and tasty to eat!
Chicken Satay with Vegetables (Chef Meg's Makeover)
Chef Meg lowered the fat and calories in this member-submitted recipe, which contains two servings of cooked vegetables per serving!
Spinach and Tomato Pasta Salad (Chef Meg's Makeover)
Most pasta salads are heavy on the pasta and light on everything else. This version, which can be served warm or cold, includes a hefty portion of vegetables--both spinach and tomatoes.
How are you spending this last unofficial day of summer?

LOVE the spinach-strawberry salad! Report
I love, love love the chicken Satay with vegetables. It is super yummy and super fresh tasting, although it does take some time to chop all the veggies, and the chicken needs to be marinetaded, but it is very fast to cook once everything is ready. Report
Finally found quinoa in one of the local groceries but it was 8.97. I can't afford that as I'm feeding three grandchildren. Report
The spinach-berry salad looks wonderful. It will probably make an appearance in my home soon. Report
I hate to cook. Report
