Meals & Recipes for February

Zuppa Toscana for Homemade Soup Day

Recipes for February, Meals for February

Did you know that February 4th is Homemade Soup Day? Let’s make this easy Zuppa Toscana. It is without a doubt one of my favorite soups. And, since it’s broth based and has kale, it’s healthy, too!

Zuppa Toscana
This my own version of Olive Garden's soup. It's full of flavor with potatoes and sausage, yet has kale to balance things out. To make it healthier and lower in fat, use turkey sausage.

Homemade Pizza for World Pizza Day

Meals for February

February 9th is World Pizza Day! Let’s celebrate with homemade pizza. Try my fool-proof and easy pizza dough recipe. Regardless of your previous experience making pizza dough, you’ll ace this and become a pizza wonder.

Best Ever Pizza Recipe
You can use all-purpose flour for this recipe, but the pizza crust is much lighter with the 00 and all-purpose flour mixture. If using pepperoni or salami,  microwave them on paper towels for about 30 seconds before adding them to the pre-baked pizza. This helps cut down on oil accumulation on the top of the baked pizza.

Black Bean Soup

Black Bean Soup is my answer to the perfect weeknight meatless meal (just leave out the bacon). It is so good that you won’t miss the meat. I use an immersion blender (or a food processor/blender) to mash some of the beans, but you can mash them by hand, too. It makes for a creamier, richer soup.

This is a really versatile recipe. You can easily spice it up by using original Rotel instead of the mild version. It can be adapted to make it vegan (leave out the bacon and use vegetable broth) friendly. I like my soup a little creamy so I use the blender to mix the last can of beans with broth until creamy. 

Steak & Shrimp – Valentines Dinner

How about a romantic dinner at home this Valentine’s Day? It’s what we do to avoid the long waits and crowded restaurants on February 14th. After all, there’s nothing romantic about that. So, check out my tips for having a romantic night at home here.

Ever since my husband upped his steak grilling game, I’d rather have steak at home anyway. A really good steak dinner at a restaurant is expensive. And, I’m often disappointed when it’s over cooked or too chewy. For easy directions and tips on grilling steak, check out this post (scroll down post for recipe).

Grilled Shrimp with Fresh Herbs
If you don’t have fresh herbs, substitute 1 tsp of dried. Preparation time doesn’t include 15-30 minutes of optional “marinating.”

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas (with Low-Carb option)

Looking for the best, creamiest chicken enchilada recipe? Look no further. I’ve been making these enchiladas for years. They are delicious, and you’ll love this February dinner. Plus, you can make them low-carb and never notice the difference.

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas
Night Before Tip: Poach your chicken ahead of time. Consider making enough for another meal like chicken pot pie or chicken dumplings.

Turkey Burgers with Sweet Potato Oven Baked Fries

Although I love a good beefy burger, these turkey burgers match them in flavor. Plus, they’re much lower in saturated fat. For a healthy meal, serve them with sweet potato fries instead of regular fries. Give making your own hamburger buns a try. After the first time I made them, I was hooked! This is a family favorite dinner.

Turkey Burgers
These burgers are so delicious, you'd never know they have turkey instead of beef! And, they pair up perfectly with roasted sweet potatoes or sweet potato fries.

Chicken Chile Verde

This is one of the first meals that I made in the Instant Pot. It’s a quick and easy weeknight meal. But, if you don’t have an Instant Pot, cook it in the Crock Pot. The instructions are include in the recipe. Serve it over rice, or in corn tortillas.

Chicken Chile Verde (Instant Pot or Slow Cooker Recipe)
Smaller families can get two meals from this recipe. Make it early in the week and you can use it to create other meals, such as chicken enchiladas or tacos, later that week.

Lasagna (with low-sodium & gluten-free options)

recipes for February, meals for February

Whenever we go to an Italian restaurant, I always look at the Lasagna first. Those layers of pasta, cheese, and meaty sauce? One word: irresistible! Make your own at home in February. Here’s the recipe:

Lasagna – Low Sodium and Gluten-Free
This lasagna is absolutely delicious, with it's layers of pasta, cheesy goodness, and rich pasta sauce. What's even better is that with the right ingredients, it's also low-sodium and gluten-free!
For the best selection of no-salt canned goods check Wal-Mart and Trader Joe's. Gluten-free pasta is available in larger grocery chains.

Sheet Pan Sausage & Veggies

This is my new favorite fast dinner, so it makes sense that it’s on my February dinner list. I use chicken or turkey sausages since they’re lower in fat. With roasted veggies, it’s the perfect combination of protein and healthy carbs.

Sheet Pan Sausage & Vegetables
You can't beat a sheet pan meal for quick & easy. Plus they are a complete dinner, on one pan. Use parchment paper or foil for mess-less cleanup.

National Strawberry Day is February 27th. We love Strawberries! In fact, we used to live in one of the biggest Strawberry producing areas of the country. To celebrate Strawberry Day, I’ll be sharing a special Strawberry blog post later this month.
