Green Goddess Spring Socca

Green Goddess Spring Socca

Socca is a lovely meal for anytime of year, but for whatever reason I’m always most compelled to make it in the springtime. It’s something about the weather getting warmer: I’m ready to break out of grain bowls and soups for lunch, more eager for flatbreads and toasts and salads. This simple green goddess spring…

Chicken Tikka Masala + Weekly Menu

Chicken Tikka Masala + Weekly Menu

I took Piper grocery shopping today. It was Shea’s nap time and since I was going to be gone most of the evening at my hockey game, I wanted to give Mr. Prevention some “free time”. And by “free time” I really mean time to train Harlie (our new bulldog), but…shhhh. Don’t let him know…

Easy Green Curry Paste (10 minutes!)

Easy Green Curry Paste (10 minutes!)

I have a thing for curry (exhibits A, B, C, D, and E). That is the understatement of the year.

I am totally obsessed with curry! The flavor, the aroma, the versatility – I’m hooked.

Since I figured out a DIY curry powder, I figured it was due time I made my own curry paste. Yes, a real jedi-level move. Be impressed.

Friends, I have to say I don’t know what took me so long to try this recipe, because homemade is sooooo much better than store-bought.

10 Low-Carb Bowl Meals You’ll Make Over and Over!

Every Friday we spotlight low-carb recipes you might want to try over the weekend, and this Friday I’m featuring some of my favorites! 10 Low-Carb Bowl Meals You’ll Make Over and Over are all dinners I make often; hope you enjoy trying some of them.

10 Low-Carb Bowl Meals You'll Make Over and Over! [featured for Low-Carb Recipe Love on KalynsKitchen.com]
I’m not completely sure why I got so enamored with meals in a bowl, but for quite a few years now I’ve been making assorted bowl meals with cabbage slaw, cauliflower rice, or spaghetti squash as the bottom layer, and interesting combinations of meat and veggies layered on top to finish the bowl. I absolutely love this type of dinner, and for this round-up I looked through the archives and picked what I think are the 10 Low-Carb Bowl Meals You’ll Make Over and Over!

And one reason I’m pretty sure that you’ll find some bowl meal ideas here that you’ll want to make more than once is because some of these are my absolute favorite dinners, things I make often and even make for guests. You don’t assemble the bowl until you’re going to eat it, so some of these also work perfectly to eat some now, take some for lunch the next day, (unless you have a big family who eats it all in one meal!) 

There are a few bowl meals here that use the slow cooker, one that uses the Instant Pot, and a few that don’t need anything except a stove. And this is a pretty international collection, with some great flavors going on. Hope you enjoy trying some of my favorite bowl meals, and happy weekend everyone!

These herby, slow cooker tomato white beans can be served with noodles, over your favorite whole grain, with crackers,…

Jamaican Jerk Grilled Eggplant (30 Minutes!)

If you like spicy, saucy food, this recipe is for you. And seeing as we are about to enter grilling season (at least in the Pacific Northwest!), it’s the perfect time for another a grillable plant-based recipe.

Shall we?

The inspiration for this recipe came from Jamaican jerk chicken. It’s been so long since I’ve had that dish, but I’ve always been drawn to smoky, spicy, earthy foods.

Low-Carb Roasted Italian Sausage and Sweet Mini Peppers Sheet Pan Meal

Low-Carb Roasted Italian Sausage and Sweet Mini Peppers Sheet Pan Meal

Low-Carb Roasted Italian Sausage and Sweet Mini Peppers Sheet Pan Meal is an easy and delicious dinner that’s low-carb, Keto, low-glycemic, gluten-free, and South Beach Diet friendly. Use the Recipes-by-Diet-Type Index to find more recipes like this one.

Low-Carb Roasted Italian Sausage and Sweet Mini-Peppers Sheet Pan Meal found on KalynsKitchen.com

A few years ago I got infatuated with a pre-cooked turkey Italian Sausage that I found at Costco and made a few recipes with it. Then Costco stopped carrying it (don’t you HATE IT when that happens) and I never found it again at another store. I am purposely not naming it, because you probably can’t find it either!

So recently I decided to re-do the recipe that used to be in this post and use the Jenni-O Turkey Italian Sausage I’m so fond of, and make it into a sheet pan meal. And since I was switching it up anyway, I got adventurous and switched the red and yellow bell pepper from the original recipe for Sweet Mini Peppers, another one of my Costco faves. (And the original recipe had red onion roasted with the sausage and peppers, which I skipped this time, but you can add that if you’d like.)

So here’s the new and improved version of the recipe which I’m now calling Low-Carb Roasted Italian Sausage and Sweet Mini Peppers Sheet Pan Meal. I am happy to no longer have a recipe here that no one can find the main ingredient for, and this updated version was a total yum! I especially loved the roasted sweet mini-peppers, which was something I hadn’t tried before.

Trust me when I say you will never miss the old recipe one bit! And if you like Italian sausage and peppers, this is about as easy as it gets for a quick low-carb and low-glycemic dinner. I think this would also be delicious with pork Italian sausage too, if you prefer that. 

I’ve been pretty enamored with Sheet Pan Meals this winter, but sheet pan meal weather is slowly changing into throw-something-on-the-grill weather, so don’t wait too long to make this or it might be too hot to use the oven!

It’s the perfect low carb brunch – sausage and eggs baked inside bell peppers. Delicious and very pretty! I actually use ground pork and spices, but you can make this even easier by using store-bought sausage.
