Easy and simple meal: gluten, grain and dairy-free

A wholesome and simple meal

A wholesome and simple meal

Tonight I made a simple but very yummy dinner, inspired by the potatoes and zucchinis in my fridge and the lemon balm in my garden.  I’ll make this post quick since it’s been a long day but I was inspired to give the simple and easy recipes for this meal:

The Menu:
Turkey Sausage Patties
Baked Yukon Gold Potatoes with Butter and Nutritional Yeast
Zucchini Lemon Balm Soup

The Sausage Patties:

1 pound ground turkey meat (could also use chicken or beef)
salt – about 1 tsp or less
a generous amount of pepper – at least 1/2 tsp
a tsp or so of ground ginger
a tsp or so of ground sage
a dash of cayenne

Mix all ingredients well in a bowl and then make into small patties.  Fry in a cast iron skillet with a little olive oil, about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until slightly browned and cooked through.

The Potatoes (use sweet potatoes if you can’t have nightshades)

how ever many potatoes you would like
salt to taste
butter or dairy-free alternative to taste
nutritional yeast flakes to taste

Preheat oven to 380.  Wash potatoes and poke holes in them with the point of a knife.  Cover in foil.  Place in oven and bake for about an hour, or until soft through.

Salt, butter and sprinkle nutritional yeast on them to taste.  Yum.
The Soup (could use asparagus, broccoli, summer squash or other veggies instead)

1 cup or so of water
1/2 an onion, diced
2 medium zucchini, sliced
3 Tbsp lemon juice
a small handful of fresh lemon balm or fresh basil
1 tsp or so of marjoram
1 tsp or so of salt

Steam the onion and zucchini for 15-20 minutes until soft.  Use filtered water for the steaming water.  Remove from burner and remove the steaming basket.  Use a blending wand to blend the veggies into the water (or blend them in a blender).  If there seems to be a lot of water, drain some out before you start blending.  You don’t want it too watery.   Add the remaining ingredients and blend until thoroughly mixed.  Enjoy!
