Never go grocery shopping when you are hungry…or you’ll end up spending $80 on a months worth of groceries like I did tonight. Whoops!
Well at least that means its recipe time!
Tonight’s dinner: 1 serving
Heirloom Caprese with balsamic reduction
1/2 heirloom tomato of your choice
4 basil leaves
3 thin slices of fresh mozzarella cheese
1 tbsp Balsamic reduction
Probably the simplest yet tastiest recipe ever. Just layer the 3 ingredients and drizzle on some balsamic reduction!
1 cup cooked rotini pasta
1/2 can tomato sauce
1/2 cup chopped broccoli/zucchini/bell peppers (a mix of the three or one of your choice)
1 tsp salt, pepper, brown sugar, olive oil
3 tbsp oregano or Italian seasoning
1tbsp crushed red pepper
Sauté veggies in olive oil, pepper, oregano/Italian seasoning, red pepper, and brown sugar. Pour in tomato sauce, let simmer for 10 min, stir occasionally. Pour over hot cooked pasta and stir.
Herbed cucumber tofu spring salad
I cup herb spring salad mix
1/4 cup chopped cucumber
1/4 cup diced extra firm tofu
1 tsp pepper
1tsp olive oil to drizzle
Combine all ingredients.
And whalaa, 20 min to a full Italian meal. A simple and easy start! No onion, no garlic 🙂
Most of this I just eyeballed and taste tested, next time I promise I’ll measure everything out exactly. These measurements are all approximate.
