Goulash oopsie!

Tonight I had a happy accident for dinner (which happens to be the best kind of accident 🙂    

I stumbled upon a dish very similar to one my mom used to make:  goulash!  I had planned on pasta with some steamed zucchini, but turns out the veggies I pulled out of the freezer had zucchini, corn, squash, onion, green pepper, and red pepper.  So I decided to throw the veggies in the red sauce and add some ground turkey.  The turkey and sauce were leftovers that I cooked up and froze sometime last week, so that made this dinner especially quick.  Threw it all on top of some carba nada.

Veggies and sauce



That’s a TON of food!  Here’s the stats:  392 Calories, 50g Carbs, 7g fat, 34g protein, 8g Fiber.

Also decided to make a healthified hummus using my favorite new toy!  Here’s what I threw in the hummus:

  • 1 can garbanzo beans (drained and rinsed, bean juice reserved)
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • About ½ cup of the reserved bean juice
cue the breath mints

Really happy with how this turned out!  Next time I may replace some of the bean juice with water since it was a little on the salty side.

Here’s an idea for a quick/healthy dessert.  Pop a couple frozen strawberries in your food processor and pulse until fruit breaks down.  Result:  Sorbet!  Can’t wait to try this with banana!
