My 5 Top Easy Recipes

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.

If you would like other banana recipes they can be found on my go banana blog.

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.

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.

    1. Did you try the Cookies? I hope you like them. I make them a couple of times a month when I crave chocolate chip cookies. They are good out of the freezer or reheated in the microwave too. Enjoy! Blessings to you!
