Dinners with Greek Yogurt
I know I’m in the minority here, but there is only one good thing about football season: empty grocery stores on Sunday afternoons! It’s almost peaceful in there. No long deli or checkout lines, plenty of time to peruse the sales and samples. It is glorious. I’m not saying stop being a football fan, but, you know, think about it. Or, you can streamline your shopping trip! Get in, throw the key ingredients you’ll need for a week’s worth of meals into your cart, and get home in time for kickoff. And now you don’t even need to come up with your week’s meals yourself – we’ve got you, football fans and frenemies alike, covered.
For dinner this week, think Greek Yogurt. It’s such a deliciously versatile ingredient. You can use it as a sub for so many other ingredients—just check out our substitution guide. Whether you use full fat or our 2%, Greek Yogurt can add creaminess, richness, and flavor to so many meals.
For these recipes, you’ll need at least a 2lb tub of Greek Yogurt. If you double any recipes, you’ll need to account for that in your yogurt shopping!
Start the week with a soup like our heavenly Creamy Chicken & Wild Rice Soup. Double the recipe so you can have leftovers for lunch all week.
You can make our Easy Flaky Greek Yogurt Pie Crust for this Greek Meat & Spinach Pie, or pick up a refrigerator crust. Either way, delicious.
Break up the week with something super flavorful and unusual. Try this Yogurt Marinated Slow Roasted Pork in Coconut Curry!
When I was little, my mom used to make us something she called Tuna Pea Wiggle. These Salmon Biscuit Pies are like a much classier version of that comfort food. Perfect for a brisk Thursday, and super easy to put together.
What better way to finish a week off than with your family, dishing up some creamy macaroni and cheese? And at only 318 calories a serving, this Healthier Mac and Cheese will start your weekend off right.
When I make lasagna, I always make more than we will eat, because it freezes and reheats beautifully. I love this Light & Classic Lasagna because it’s perfectly cheesy and flavorful, and with the ricotta cut in half and mixed with Greek Yogurt, it’ll be good eating for lunchtime leftovers or reheated weeknight meals.
