My Top 10 – Favorite Main Dishes

Sorry, there was no way I could do only 10 here…

I had to stretch it to 15!

But I’m sure you won’t mind, now, will you?

Oh, and please forgive me if words are getting a little scarce by now. At the time you are reading this, I might be living “La Dolce Vita”, doing “La Farniente” while enjoying the delicious warm sun of a Cuban sandy beach, but at the time of writing the actual words, my life was nothing but a crazy mad dash to the finish line.

But hey, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words

So you’ve got well over 15 000 words right here. If I were to write more, you’d still be here tomorrow!

Let’s not waste time and get busy checking out recipes, shall we?


Home Made Spelt Fettucine and Healthy Alfredo Sauce

Fettuccini Alfredo | by Sonia! The Healthy Foodie

Home made pasta that’s easy to make and Alfredo Sauce that’s actually healthy?



Creamy Pumkin and Chestnut Pasta

This would be my new Mac ‘N Cheese!

So good and creamy and delicious…

I dare you to try it!

Grains and Casseroles

Creamy Spinach Barley Risotto

Creamy Spinach Barley Risotto | by Sonia! The Healthy Foodie

Who says risotto always have to be made with the same old white rice? Try barley for a change.

It’s much healthier, and I personally like it better!

Poached Egg over Creamy Polenta

Polenta and poached egg.

Need I say more?

I thought not…

Dried Fruit and Goat Cheese Buckwheat Salad

Dried Fruit and Goat Cheese Buckwheat Groats | by Sonia! The Healthy Foodie

Oh, the flavors in that one! I only made it once, but I still get major cravings for it sometimes.

I will have to make it again sometime soon!

One of my favorite buckwheat dishes ever…

Mushroom Spinach and Brown Rice Casserole

Baked Brown Rice Casserole | by Sonia! The Healthy Foodie

If you think rice dishes are boring, think again…

This one will knock your socks right off!


Christmas Worthy Chicken Meatloaves

Mini Chicken Meatloaves | by Sonia! The Healthy Foodie

While you can very well make these any day of the year, they are so good that I deemed them worthy of making an appearance at my table this coming Christmas.

They might shrink a little  take a bit of a rounder shape this time, however…

Yeah, I’m thinking meat balls!

Oh, I can’t wait! Is it Christmas yet?

Crispy Baked Chicken Fingers

Crispy Oven Baked Chicken Tenders | by Sonia! The Healthy Foodie

These are simply amazing!

Much better than any of the deep fried stuff I’ve ever had…

Pizzas, Sandwiches and Savory Pies

Rustic Grilled Peaches Pizza

Oh, how I love pizzas with unconventional toppings.

Add a less conventional cooking method to that and you’ve got me hooked, that’s for sure!

And no, this is not dessert…

Ratatouille Pizza

Ratatouille Pizza | by Sonia! The Healthy Foodie

My love for ratatouille is so strong, it was only a matter of time before I turned it into a pizza.

Sure makes for a pretty pie, don’t ya think?

Well, for the record, it did taste as good as it looks!

Shaved Asparagus and Mushroom Pizza

Shaved Asparagus and Mushroom Pizza | by Sonia! The Healthy Foodie

Asparagus overload on a crispy whole wheat dough.

Who could possibly ask for more?

Asparagus and Cheese Quiche!

Grain Free Asparagus and Cheese Quiche | by Sonia! The Healthy Foodie

While this one does have a crust, it doesn’t have the grains or the fat that’s in conventional quiche.

It’s a superb alternative, if you ask me.

Bet you won’t miss the real thing!

Rustic Salmon Pie

Rustic Salmon Pie | by Sonia! The Healthy Foodie

Tired of salmon pie that seem to contain nothing but mashed potatoes?

Give that one a try. You will not be disappointed!

Artichoke and Green Olive Savory Cheesecake

Got you already, don’t I?

Thought so…

Veggie Burgers and Sides

Veggie Burgers | by Sonia! The Healthy Foodie

Awesome Veggie Burger, along with sides and dessert!

Speaking of which…

Of course, dessert will be the star of my next and final “Top 10”.

So watch this space!

    Your post prompted me to make the spinach and barley risotto. Amazing! I love spinach and barley, and this was such a lovely way to eat it. Several of these dishes have now made it into my bookmark list, in fact, so thank you for this list.

      You bet, it’s a thing! Not only is it a thing, it’s SOMETHING too! You really have to give this a try. And you know what? Doesn’t even matter if your salmon doesn’t look all that nice… in fact, a lot of people will used canned salmon for this, but I could never stand canned salmon. To me, canned salmon and tuna look nothing like the real thing, so I only have them as an emergency resort!

      And I’m right with you on the pasta. I think I’m way overdue for a good plate of Alfredo. Maybe when it gets way colder out… mind you, having just spent the last week in 40 degree and super sunny weather, I find it extremely cold here today. Cold and depressing… too bad I’m not really hungry, pasta would definitely be in order!
