Bunless Burger Bites

In a large bowl, combine ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, garlic, Worcestershire, and mustard and season with salt and pepper. Mix until fully combined, then form into small, meatball-size patties.

Zucchini Bites by Lisa Washington | Set the Table with Love

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray a mini-muffin tin with non-stick spray and set it aside.

2. Grate the zucchini and then place it in a dish towel to squeeze out the excess water, similar to when using frozen spinach.

3. In a bowl, combine the egg, onion, cheese, bread crumbs, zucchini, salt, and pepper.

4. Using a spoon or a cookie scoop, fill the muffin cups to the top. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the tops are browned and set.

In a medium bowl, combine the avocado, tomato, red onion, poblano, jicama, if using, cilantro, juice of 1 lime, garlic salt, and pepper. Taste the mixture for lime juice and salt, adding more as necessary. Serve immediately with tortilla chips.

2 (15-oz. each) cans kidney beans, rinsed, drained

1 tsp. chili powder

½ tsp. sea salt (or Himalayan salt)

Crushed red peppers (to taste; optional)

12 sprigs parsley, chopped


Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat.

Add onion and bell peppers; cook, stirring frequently, for 4 to 5 minutes, or until onion is soft.

Add turkey; cook for 4 to 5 minutes, or until turkey is browned

Add tomatoes, beans, chili powder, salt, and red peppers; cook, stirring frequently, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Divide turkey chili into 6 serving bowls and garnish with parsley if desired.

Almond Crusted Chicken Tenders


2 Tbsp. raw honey

2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

2 tsp. rice wine vinegar

Nonstick cooking spray or olive oil cooking spray

2 large eggs

2 Tbsp. water

1 lb. raw chicken breast tenders, skinless

1 cup whole wheat Panko bread crumbs (Japanese-style bread crumbs)

1/2 cup finely chopped sliced raw almonds

1 dash sea salt or Himalayan salt

1 dash ground black pepper


Combine honey, mustard, and vinegar in a small bowl; mix well. Chill.

Preheat oven to 425° F.

Line baking sheet with foil; lightly coat with spray.

Combine eggs and water in a medium shallow bowl; whisk to blend.

Soak chicken in egg mixture for 30 minutes, turning once; set aside.

Combine bread crumbs, almonds, salt, and pepper in a large resealable plastic bag; shake to combine.

Working with a few pieces at a time, lift chicken from egg mixture, letting excess drip back into bowl, and drop into bag containing bread crumb mixture. Seal bag and shake to coat; repeat with remaining chicken.

Place chicken on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes, until no longer pink in the middle and golden brown.
