Recipe #18: Mexican Lentil Soup

I had this soup last night for dinner and as I’m writing this post, I’m having another bowl of it. It’s good. And it was a little chilly yesterday so a nice warm soup was comforting. I really liked the combination of the spices with the sweet cinnamon, it adds a “je ne sais quoi”…

Rotisserie Chicken and Stirfry

After a long day of work, dinner was a rotisserie chicken from the store with a super simple stirfry The stirfry just had bean sprouts, bokchoy, celery and onion. Seasoning was only soy sauce and sriracha. Nothing fancy about this meal but it was all I could handle after a long day like today. Definitely…

Veggie Stirfry with Tofu

It was a hot and cold thing going on with this lunch. I had a hot stirfry with bokchoy and leftover roasted asparagus and squash. Then I had a cold tofu that I just cut up into small cubes and pressed for a couple minutes. I seasoned both components with just teriyaki sauce and sriracha,…

Peanut Noodles

Another super easy meal, brought to you by me! This meal was kind of a cross between peanut noodles and a regular stirfry. Just sauteed some onions, carrots and peppers, then add ginger and a few chilis for flavour. Once that’s all blended nicely, add cooked spaghetti (you can use real asian style noodles instead)….

Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

For some reason, there were like 8 bell peppers in my house so I thought ‘why not make some stuff peppers’. So I did. I found this recipe online from Minimalist Baker (link here) and it looked really good and I was super happy cause I had pretty much had everything it called for. I…

Scramble with Sautéed Veggies

I realised I don’t have many breakfast posts, so here is a super easy one. I made sautéed zucchini, carrots and kale, seasoned with just salt and pepper. I put that in my bowl, then I scrambled some egg whites and melted in a little cheese. I put that on top and gave a little…

Mediterranean Couscous

Sticking with my green and orange,  made this awesome and simple couscous dish for lunch. I started by just cooking some couscous in a pot. In another pot, I sauteed some kale to wilt it down, then added chopped carrots and chickpeas. I also added sliced olives for saltiness, a little olive oil and spices…

Ground Beef Chili

I know I’ve made a few chilis before, but they’re just so easy and you can honestly add whatever you like.  This one has ground beef, corn, black beans, onion, red peppers, swiss chard and a whole lot of spices (not joking, I used 10 different things). Super simple, I was done start to finish…

Breakfast Quesadilla

This morning, I was kind of in the mood to make more than just regular scrambled eggs, so I made this egg and cheese quesadilla. So I started off my cooking some egg whites, scrambled. Then I put a little oil in a pan and placed my tortilla in there for a minute or two…

Asian Meatballs

I’m just gonna start off by saying that I did not make the meatballs in that picture, that is the picture from the original Gimme Some Oven recipe (http://www.gimmesomeoven.com/saucy-asian-meatballs/). I did make this recipe tonight though, and mine looked similar, I just didn’t have the green onions or sesame seeds. So I wasn’t thinking and…
