This evening, I was inspired to make the following dish, after having watched my friend Chef AJ’s latest show, which I’ll post for you at the end. Here’s what’s for dinner at my house. This is such an easy recipe – so there are no excuses for not eating a healthy meal! Plus, I made enough for a family of six people – this way I will have leftovers for lunch & dinner! I may have to invite a few neighbors over to eat! Just sayin’!
2 packs of Trader Joe’s Organic Brown Rice
1 Cup frozen Organic Peas
1 Cup frozen Organic Corn
1 Pack frozen shelled soybeans/edamame from Trader Joes
1 Red Bell Pepper
1 Cup Red Cabbage
1 Jar of Newman’s Own Roasted Garlic Salsa
Heat & bring to boil water in a large pot and then add the frozen edamame, peas, & corn. Let it cook for five minutes.
Heat rice in microwave for three minutes. Heat one pack at a time. Once done, put over in a bowl to cool.
Chop up the red bell pepper and and cabbage.
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl and then finally add the salsa. ENJOY!
As you can see this is so easy peasy that there should be no excuses for why not to cook at home! Last week, I was exhausted from a long day of working on some projects. I didn’t feel like going out and I was craving something substantial, so I went through my fridge and cupboards and came up with this dish
Half a pack of Organic pasta
Head of broccoli washed and cut
1 Red Bell Pepper
1 Tbsp Sesame Oil
2 Cups of mushrooms
2 Rainbow Carrots – optional
Garlic – as much as you desire
Organic Strained Tomatoes (No Salt Added) from bionaturæ
A couple of dashes of Bragg’s Sprinkle 24 Herbs & Spices Seasoning
Boil water and cook the pasta in a large pot – follow instructions on the pack.
Steam the broccoli – but not too long as you want it crisp!
Saute the red bell pepper first on the pan. Then use a table spoon of Sesame oil and add the garlic and spices. Then add in the broccoli and the mushrooms.
Add the cooked spaghetti and then the sauce.
Voilà, dinner is ready!
Now what are you going to be making for dinner? Got any other great ideas? Please share!
