As a follow-up to my podcast episode that published this past week, I wanted to share last night's dinner.
WHAT? That doesn't even make sense!
Well, if you listen to that episode, it will make more sense.
Now that you've listened, you will understand the rest of this post about dinner.
You see, I made dinner last night for myself and my hubby without planning ahead. Just did what I always do (as mentioned in the episode. Yes, I really do practice what I preach.)
It was such a simple, easy and quick dinner without forethought. I had not even a thought to share it here - thus the reason you are getting photos from the leftovers today.
I will share exactly what I did and all the details, however I have no idea what to call this dish.
Do you? If you have suggestions, shoot them my way. I have a Facebook Chat Group that you are free to join which is a great place to give me your ideas.
I started with the idea of using a can of organic black beans, drained and rinsed, for my protein.
I noticed I had some leftover Cauli-Fried Rice in the fridge from the day before. (By the way if you have a Costco near you, they currently carry a Cauli-Fried Rice that is amazing. It's all organic veggies and spices.)
I went to my fridge to see what other veggies I had and pulled some onion, bell pepper, carrots and broccoli, chopped it up and threw it in a large skillet with the "fried rice" and beans,
Added a little water and a lot of seasonings
Covered and simmered on med heat, stirring now and then until the carrots and broccoli were tender.
This took all of about 20 minutes from start to finish and I always cut up my veggies at the time of cooking, not beforehand. It was so fast that I had to let it sit and reheat it before my hubby got home - my timing was underestimated.
Since I didn't have the thought to share this until this morning, you are getting photos of the cold leftovers, however it will be just as good the second time around.
And what's better? It's pretty much a complete meal loaded with nutrition and no additives or preservatives and all 100% organic, as well as delicious, full of flavor and very satisfying. Speaking of, it's almost lunch time so I think I'm off to reheat. (Writing this has made me hungry.)
