Recipe Recap {August}

Hi friends! If we are still on schedule today we are lounging on the beaches of Koh Samui (follow along on Instagram or snapchat @courtneyalkek for both). Due to the magic of the inter webs I am bringing you this month’s top recipes we tried without actually setting a finger on a keyboard today. Gotta love scheduling posts- I should really be better at this when I am not on vacation.


Without further ado…

1. Quick and Easy Lentil Quesadillas via A Pinch of Yum

lentil-quesadillas-8I told you last month we were obsessed with lentils. I didn’t realize until after I bought all the ingredients that this is meant to be a slow cooker recipe (which we do not have here). I just cooked the rice and lentils on their own then let them sit in a saucepan with the sauce and marinate for a while before assembling the quesadillas and they tasted amazing! It makes quite a big batch too so we were able to keep the filling in the fridge and whip up some more quesadillas for lunch over the weekend.

2. Ranch Cauliflower Bites via The Gunny Sack


One of the few items I have people send over from the States are Hidden Valley Ranch packets in all sorts of flavors. I usually just use them to mix with greek yogurt but when I saw this recipe on pinterest I knew I had to take advantage of having ranch on hand. Plus cauliflower is my favorite. My only complaint is I didn’t buy enough cauliflower because I just wanted mooooore.

3. Chimichurri Shrimp via Gimme Some Oven 

Chimichurri-Shrimp-31I love chimichurri sauce and I had no idea how simple it is to make! Looks like we will be having it a lot more often from now on. We made these yummy shrimp (or prawns as they say here) and put them in corn tortillas to make a tacos. So good!

This month’s recap is short and sweet since we were only home half of the month, have a great weekend!
