I’m trying to kick up my blog a notch. As you might have noticed, my posts have been few and far between these days. So, because I want to keep you all entertained (& healthy), I’m going to make a concerted effort to get my blog on more often.
You’re welcome in advance!
One of my favorite types of posts falls within the Meatless Monday category – I’m a huge advocate and I think you all need to take the pledge if you haven’t already. You can read all about the movement here.
But, as I was saying – I’ve been trying to blog more frequently. And tonight I was determined to post, especially given it was Meatless Monday and all. However, I didn’t have time/didn’t really feel like going to the grocery store which caused a slight dilemma.
As far as cooking goes, I’m big into planning meals. I really enjoy finding recipes to try, putting together shopping lists, going to the store… you get the idea.
And since tonight none of the above was happening, I had to get creative. I haven’t been to the store in days and didn’t know where to begin. I started with the fridge, which is where I found some quinoa (only 1/2 c dry mind you), a red pepper, a zucchini, some kale, lemon & tahini… Luckily I had some garlic lying around too because, let’s face it – what’s a recipe without a little garlic?

What you need:
- 1/2 c quinoa prepared
- 1 red pepper
- 1 zucchini
- 4-5 kale leaves
- 5 cloves of garlic, pressed
- 1 tbsp tahini
- 1/2 lemon
- pepper, to taste
While the quinoa was simmering, I steamed my veggies (I chopped them first). Once they were both done, I literally just threw the quinoa and veggies in a big bowl and added the garlic, tahini, lemon and pepper. Done! Yes, really.
I really outdid myself with this concoction – so easy and so good! Maybe I should leave cooking to fate more often.
