Veg-Centric – A meal surrounded around the veg
I was planning on sitting back, watching a movie, and letting my mom do all the cooking tonight. She had big plans to make veggie dumplings and I was stoked. She changed her mind last minute and decided to make spaghetti and meatballs instead. To bad that was exactly what I had for lunch 😦
So I sucked it up and got cooking. After all the heavy holiday eating, my body wanted something veg-centric. After a quick survey of my freshly stocked fridge, I pulled out kale, string beans, broc, zucchini, and red peppers.
I washed, chopped and threw them in a pan with some veggie broth.
Seasoned with garlic and sea salt
and let it sit, covered on a low heat
Then I cooked up 1/2 a cup of quinoa in 1 cup of bowling water
Cook for 15 minutes
Season with salt, pepper, garlic, Romano cheese, and dried basil.
Serve with veg, olives, and artichoke hearts.
I had enough veg and quinoa to cover lunch tomorrow.
Light, fresh, delicious.
