Chicken Vegetable Soup with Spinach, Gluten-Free

Are you looking for a light soup for lunch that still has the fiber and protein to last you for hours? A few days ago I made this soup for lunch and found it lasted me well through the afternoon, even though it’s without noodles or rice. It was also soothing for a tender tummy when I was a little under the weather recently. There’s plenty of flavor without being overpowering.

Turkey Breast for the Crockpot

While I wouldn’t call a crock pot meal “quick,” this one certainly is easy compared to some other ways to cook turkey.

It’s such an easy gluten-free turkey recipe that I’ve cooked it for Thanksgiving dinner for several years, and I plan to cook it again soon.

While I like this way to serve turkey dinner with all the trimmings for guests, it’s also wonderful to have some turkey for dinner and leftovers for great lunch and freezer options.

Tomato Bean Soup, Quick & Easy

Have you ever been hungry for a bowl of hearty tomato soup? I wasn’t sure what “hearty tomato soup” meant the other day, but that was the kind of tomato soup I wanted. We were having guests for dinner but they would be arriving late, after another event, and I was preparing steaks to broil and veggies and rice on the side. A crockpot meal would have been ideal for that uncertain dinner hour, but since steaks don’t broil in a crockpot, I opted for soup instead. Tomato soup with some extras that might tide us over till a late supper, or be a good first course. Here is what we had. No leftovers.

Cod Fillets Sauteed with Garlic, Onions and Peppers, Gluten-Free, Casein-Free

Looking for a healthy dish with lots of flavor that’s also quick and easy for a weeknight supper? One serving (including a little over 5 ounces uncooked weight of the fish) has only about 188 calories and 28 grams of protein. Cod, a mild-flavored deep sea fish, is easily found in many supermarkets. Easy to cook in a variety of ways, cod fillets are among my family’s favorites for taste and ease of preparation.
