A WIAW Party with Morning Star

It’s seems this week, Healthy Helper is transforming into a recipe blog! After Monday’s super popular pizza, I am back today with another tantalizing dish that I’m sure you all will love. It’s so easy and so flavorful. 

WIAW is a little different this week because instead of showing you a bunch of random eats, I am focusing on one delicious recipe that I enjoyed coming up with recently! Also, the fact that I’ve been super busy with work and haven’t had a lot of time to sit down for normal meals means my camera is pretty lacking with food pictures right now. But never fear! I’ll get back on the bandwagon this week! 

Today is all about partying. Not only the WIAW party, but a recipe that is PERFECT for serving at your next large gathering or girl’s night!  morningstar15minmeals

For this recipe, I am partnering up with MorningStar Farms and their new Good Food, Good Times campaign. Good food certainly makes for good times, so I can definitely get on board with that idea! 

This summer, the MorningStar Farms team is traveling across the country to enlighten people about how tasty healthy food can be for you! With over 30 vegetarian products, MorningStar Farms is trying to spread innovative ways to create flavorful meatless meal options – without compromising taste. 

The recipe I created with some newly released MorningStar Farms products prove that message without a doubt! With some coupons for MorningStar Farms I picked up the following products…  morningstarpackages I had never tried either before and I was pretty impressed with the nutritional stats as well as the ingredients. Nothing too hard to pronounce and pretty much everything was recognizable. Definitely a good choice for a health meal in a pinch!  morningstar2 The nice people at MorningStar Farms also sent me a cute table setting package for me to display my creation on! I’d love a full set of this stuff to use for entertaining and summertime barbecues outside!  My challenge was to come up with a recipe using these MorningStar Farms products!

With all their great ingredients, I assumed these products tasted amazing on their own, so I decided to come up with an easy recipe that complimented the flavors and textures already within the products themselves.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
