My poor son (just for future reference, I call him Bugga-Bugga). We have been trapped inside all weekend and all he wants to do is play on the swings. He keeps bringing me his shoes.
Poor Kid. Anyway, so last night’s dinner was a new recipe I tweaked from one of the websites on my blogroll – meals & moves. Turkey Bake! It has like ALL my favorite things in one pan. I looked at this recipe and had one of those ‘Huh.” moments (must tilt your head to the side when you say it). So here’s the breakdown of what I used:
1pkg Lean Ground Turkey Breast
1/2 C (heaping) Oats
1.5 C Great Northern Beans
1 Can No Sodium Added Tomatoes (with garlic & olive oil)
3 oz Chopped Fire Roasted Red Pepper (not in the pic)
2 Cloves Garlic *if you don’t own a garlic press, I HIGHLY recommend you get one – they are AWESOME*
1 Small Onion
2 C Chopped Spinach (frozen would work too)
Salt, Italian Seasoning and Fresh Basil to taste.
Throw all of it in a bowl and get yer hands dirty!
Spread into a 9×13 pan (or similar size) that has a light coating of cooking spray and toss into a pre-heated 350* oven for 35-40 min.
Deeelish! You can top it if you want with pasta sauce or ketchup, but I wanted it plain with a little sprinkle of reduced fat Italian Cheese Blend. Stats for this bad boy:
1/4 of the pan!!! Cals: 336 Fat: 2.4g Sodium: 289g Carbs: 32g Fiber: 8g Sugar: 5g Protein: 46g!
While I was preparing this I was starving, so I made a little snack:
