Baked Tostones (Green Plantains – Plantains are a snack that my son has enjoyed and has a preference for since he was a young boy. I was only too happy to provide him with this snack because it was definitely a healthier choice to the other snack choices that are full of sugar and little nutrition if any at all. This recipe is simply a delicious version and even healthier for you with the plantains being baked instead of fried. Serving them with a zesty avocado, cilantro dressing is the perfect touch.
Southwest Turkey Meatballs with Creamy Cilantro Dipping Sauce – I love meatball appetizers and the fact that there are so many versions gives me all the more reason to continue searching for new recipes and making them for my family and friends. I came across this recipe among the many tasty appetizers offered at Skinnytaste.com and what caught my attention was that they were made from ground turkey which is a healthier alternative and the creamy cilantro dipping sauce looked good enough to eat in the picture provided.
Baked Mini Spinach and Sausage Arancini – When reading through the many appetizers available I saw this one that contained spinach and I knew I had to take a closer look at it. When reading the name I was not familiar with what Arancini was, so I began reading about it in the article. I came to know it as a mini baked Italian rice ball and it sounded like a delicious choice and I have since included it in my recipe collection. Serving them with a quick marinara sauce is a great choice and a delicious compliment to the Arancini. A quick tip is that you can prepare the mixture ahead of time, roll them into balls and when it comes time to cook them off, you only need to roll them in the breadcrumbs and bake.
Skinny Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins – I am not sure what it was that caught my attention first, buffalo chicken or potato skins, but the combination of both was a mixture I had to try for myself. Utilizing the same chicken from another recipe “crock pot buffalo chicken lettuce wraps” only this time she has stuffed it into potato skins and topped them with cheese! The shreds of carrot and celery give them an elegant appeal. The dipping sauce is her Skinny blue cheese dressing, this sets it over the top, there just can’t be too much cheese in my opinion.
Baked Chipotle Sweet Potato Fries – These are referred to as a guiltless fry and are lightly tossed with olive oil and spices, then baked in the oven instead of frying them. Sweet potatoes are a great choice to switch up the usual russet potato fries. Sweet potatoes offer a lightly sweet flavor that can be enjoyed as it is in this recipe or dipped in the suggested skinny ranch dip. I love dipping my fries in ketchup and I recently tried a sweet potato fry dipped in it and it was delicious, a versatile fry and a tasty treat.
I hope that you enjoy these recipes and decide to try one in your own kitchen. It’s always nice to enjoy something new and you will never run out of ideas at Skinnytaste.com where she has such great recipes that are healthier for you.
