I have some confessions to make: I hate cooking anything that takes longer than 20 minutes, and I'm afraid of turning the stove on. We have a gas one and sometimes the flames come out super crazy. So whenever I post any recipes, you know Andy was home because that's the only way the stove gets turned on. I'm going to be a really great wife!!
On that note, I've been trying to make quick and healthy meals more often, and I thought it'd be fun to share them on here! I wouldn't really call this a recipe, it's more of a meal suggestion...
What you need:
-1/2 cup of quinoa
-handful of kale
-heirloom tomatoes cut in half
Cook your quinoa to your liking. I don't do anything fancy, I just cook about a cup at a time whenever I feel like having some. I use the organic white quinoa from Trader Joe's in case you're wondering. A bag is only $5 and makes about 10-15 meals. In a pan, I liberally spray coconut oil and throw in the kale and cut up heirloom tomatoes. You can also use olive oil (or any oil, really) but I swear when you cook kale with coconut oil it starts to smell like popcorn. After your veggies are nice and popcorn-y scented, set them aside and cook your asparagus the same way. Add salt and pepper to your liking. Ta-da! We can all be wives now!
What's your favorite go to meal? I'd love to try them out!
