When food is easy to make, we listen. Tell me more or give me that recipe. Around my table today, I’m sharing My 5 Top Easy Recipes to include with your meals or make as a main dish.
These are the recipes I make a few times a month depending on the season. They involve a variety of foods and nutrients.
Breadsticks or Pitas
If you eat gluten-free, use your favorite flour. I love this recipe because it has yogurt, flour, and a leavening agent, and it is done. This recipe can also be found on my pizza soup blog.
Easy Recipes for Breadsticks/or Pitas
I love this recipe because it can be made just like that.
- 1 cup flour
- 2.5 tsp baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- ¾ cup plain yogurt works better with regular plain or FAGE yogurt.
Mix and form into a ball- add more flour if needed. Let rest for 5 minutes. Roll into a pizza pan and drizzle with EVOO and garlic powder. Score/Cut with a pizza cutter before baking into breadsticks. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
For pitas make as above except divide into 6-8 balls. Roll out each ball into a 4-6 inch circle and place in a non-stick pan on the stove and cook until each side is brownish or bubbly. They are like naan bread and perfect for pita-like sandwiches or to dip into soup. I like to make and freeze them for future soup.
Banana Breakfast Cookies
- 1 cup oatmeal – I like to use quick but either can be used
- 2 mashed bananas
- ¼ cup mini chocolate chips or ¼ cup chopped walnuts
Stir in a med-size bowl and place tablespoons of mix onto a cookie sheet lined with a silicon mat or parchment paper. You should get 11-12 of them and mash them if you want a cookie appearance. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Foil Salmon on the Grill with Veggies
- 1 Zucchini Zoodles
- 2 pieces of salmon
- 1 onion chopped
- ½ red pepper chopped
- Garlic powder to taste
- 1 TBSP balsamic vinegar
Place defrosted salmon servings on aluminum foil 10 x10 inches in size for each packet. Mix one zucchini cut into zoodles with 1 chopped onion, red pepper, garlic powder to taste, and 1 TBSP balsamic vinegar. Place mixture next to salmon and close and grill for 7-12 minutes until salmon is done.
Salmon is a superfood. It has omega-3 fats, protein, and an excellent and easy way to cook fish. See the link for Salmon nutrition.
Israeli Salad Easy Recipe
This is perfect for a side salad, on top of a lettuce salad, or in Shawarma. This recipe can also be found on my blog about our trip to Israel.
- 2-3 tomatoes diced
- 1/2 English cucumber diced
- ½ red onion diced
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1-2 TBSP lemon or lime juice
- 1 tsp zaatar, Mediterranean spice, or oregano.
Easy Winter Salsa Recipe
For the final recipe, I make this salsa in the winter when I can’t make fresh pico. It has half-fresh ingredients in it. I don’t even buy salsa because this is the best tasting.
- 1 13-ounce can of chopped or whole tomatoes
- ½ small onion- chunked
- 1-2 tsp garlic minced
- 1 tbsp lime juice
- ½ bunch of fresh cilantro
- ½ tsp cumin powder
- 1 can rotelle or diced tomatoes with green chillis
- Place all except the rotelle in a ninja or food chopper and pulse until everything is chopped/mixed up.
- Add the rotelle and pulse 2 more times. You will have some chunks in your salsa.
