Summer Succotash

Well Dined | Summer Succotash

This stunning dish comes to you from my weekly vegetarian lunches with Melissa from Smells Like Brownies.  Consisting of just vegetables with a little feta, this is about as healthy as you can get!  It's also super filling and surprisingly delicious.  I say surprisingly because let's be honest, most people don't go around graving a pile of veggies.  But this is so good that even my veggie hating husband liked it!  Served warm with a variety of textures and flavors, vibrant basil, and salty cheese - it really leaves you feeling satisfied.

Great on it's own as a lunch, served as a side to chicken or steak (which is what I did with leftovers), or even stuffed into a pita pocket - this is a super healthy AND yummy Summer dish.  It can also become vegan quite easily.  So how about it?  Let's get some veggies into our lives!

Turkey and Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie

Okay - it is really hard to get an attractive picture of a shepherd's pie.  The blogger I got this recipe from did cute little individual dishes and I thought "Ain't nobody got time for that!" and just did one big casserole.  But after posting a very unattractive photo on facebook (that sparked a crazy battle between two friends, no joke) I know why she did it that way!

Photography aside, this dish is great.  Lean but satisfying ground turkey mixed with a ton of veggies make a hearty filling.

Topped with delicious super-food sweet potatoes, this version of shepherd's pie is super healthy and super delicious.

Baking it in individual dishes is definitely cuter and neater, but if you don't care whether the topping gets mixed into the filling on the plate - you can totally do one big dish.
