Spinach Feta Pinwheels

When asked about my favorite appetizer to make, I always think of these spinach feta pinwheels. They are really easy to make, and they freeze well days before you need them! Chopped frozen spinach and a frozen puff pastry sheet makes the job stress-free. All you have to do is wait for the spinach and puff pastry to thaw, then mix up the spinach with feta cheese and nutmeg in your Magic Bullet and spread it on the top. An […]

Homemade Spinach Tortillas

Homemade tortillas are the best! They taste so fresh compared to store-bought tortillas, and don’t have any preservatives. You can make a larger batch and freeze them for later use, too. My toddler is a bit of a picky eater, and doesn’t like to eat vegetables. I try to sneak them in any way I can, and these spinach tortillas are just one example. Fresh spinach is puréed in the Magic Bullet, then mixed with flour and olive oil to […]

Chicken Saltimbocca

This chicken dish is incredibly flavorful, thanks to the prosciutto, spinach and goat cheese wrapped up inside. As the chicken cooks in broth, the flavor of the prosciutto coats each chicken breast. After cooking, the broth you use to cook the chicken in the skillet can be used as a flavorful lemon sauce. You can add a little flour to thicken it up, or leave it alone. Serve the chicken rolls with a side of rice or couscous and a […]

One-Pot Tortellini with Sweet Potato, Spinach, and Cream

What if you could make a pasta dish in less than thirty minutes using a clever mix of store-bought ingredients and homemade pizazz that was delicious, unusual, and nutritious? (Well… It contains vegetables, at least.) And what if it all fit in one pot for easy cleanup and no stress? I don’t know about you, but that sounds pretty good to me. Adapted from The Kitchn, this dish uses store-bought frozen tortellini combined with sweet potatoes, spinach and just a litttttle bit of […]

Mushroom and Spinach Lasagna Rolls

Looking for an easy weeknight dinner? These lasagna rolls are an easy dish that you can even prepare ahead of time and just pop in the oven when ready to bake and serve. This recipe is vegetarian, but feel free to modify it by adding meat; ground beef, turkey or chopped sausage are great additions to these lasagna rolls. If you want to stick with the vegetarian version, you can also add other veggies, like artichoke hearts, bell peppers or chopped tomatoes. […]

Happy Easter! Miniature quiche cups are the perfect party appetizer because they make great finger food – and with all those eggs lying around, you’ll get points for deliciousness and ingenuity! Whip up these mini spinach quiche cups in minutes using your Magic Bullet blender and pre-baked phyllo cups that you can find in the freezer section of most grocery stores. Pre-baked phyllo cups are the perfect quiche crust because you don’t have to worry about it getting soggy! You […]

Grasshopper Smoothie

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! In celebration of all things green today, I made this green grasshopper smoothie. Don’t worry, it doesn’t contain any real grasshoppers! It is inspired by grasshopper desserts, which usually contain mint and chocolate. This healthy smoothie is loaded with spinach, banana, almond milk, mint extract, and cacao nibs. It is really refreshing when cold, so I like to freeze my bananas beforehand and use a handful of frozen spinach straight from the freezer. Fresh mint leaves […]

Spinach and Feta Crepes

These spinach crêpes make a delightfully quick and healthy lunch. First, the Magic Bullet whips up a batch of delicious crêpe batter, and then they are cooked and filled with blended spinach and feta cheese and sprinkled with pine nuts. When filling the crêpes, I like to fry them in a little bit of butter until they are warmed, and then top them with crumbled feta cheese and pine nuts. Spinach and Feta Crepes Ingredients 1/2 cup milk 2 eggs  1/4 […]

Spinach Dumplings

This spinach dumpling recipe is a fun way to sneak your greens in! I easily get bored with eating vegetables plain and I’m always looking for new ways to get them in my diet. These spinach dumplings use a lot of spinach, but you’d never know it! One large bag of fresh spinach makes about 20 small dumplings, which is a one person serving. The fresh spinach leaves are wilted in a pan on the stove, then the excess water […]

Saag Paneer

I love Indian food, but sometimes restaurant Indian is too heavy for a weeknight meal. Here’s a much healthier take on an Indian classic, saag paneer. (Fun note: saag actually just means “greens” in punjabi, whereas palaak means “spinach,” so technically this is both saag paneer and palaak paneer.) Usually creamy spinach with cheese, I substitute super-pressed tofu for the cheese to give protein and virtually the same flavor with a lighter touch. Saaaaaaaaag: The Magic Bullet really shines in […]
