I love a fancy dinner more than I love shopping for pants.
Whew! So glad I got that off my chest.
Honestly I've NEVER liked shopping for pants, so I would pretty much do ANYTHING to avoid seeing my bottom half in skinny jean after skinny jean.
And while we are on the subject of being truthful, our weekly dinners are rarely ever fancy. A lot of them require little effort and can be prepared by someone half asleep. (That last part IS a true statement...)
The picture above was taken last week. See, dinner time=total bore!
The only thing I try and strive more is high nutrition and little effort. Which is why my favorite dishes are the ones that involve throwing everything into one pot/bowl/ etc. And by everything I mean a ton of veggies, a good source of protein, and lots of flavor.
So easy you could do it in your sleep!
Green Goddess Honey Cilantro Stir Fry (With Quinoa)
Serves 4-8 (small-large servings)
2 c. dry quinoa
4 c. vegetable broth
1 large TB. coconut oil
1 large shallot
4 cloves garlic chopped
1 green pepper diced
1 zucchini diced
1 broccoli floret chopped
1 tsp. coconut oil
3 TB. soy sauce
4 TB. honey
1 bunch cilantro chopped
Optional toppings: green onions, avocado, pineapple, and almond slivers!
1. Add quinoa and vegetable broth to a rice cooker and cook until done, about 15 minutes. (You can also do this on a pot over the stove.)
2. While the quinoa is cooking prepare your veggies. In a large skillet over the stove, add your coconut oil. Add your shallot and garlic and cook for about 2 minutes. Throw in your veggies and cook for about 5-7 minutes.
3. Turn heat to low. Make a hole in the center and add coconut oil. Crack your eggs in the center and whisk them until scrambled. Once quinoa is done, fold it into the stir fry. Add soy sauce and honey and toss to coat. Remove from heat and fold in cilantro. Serve and top with desired toppings. (If needed add salt and pepper, probably not necessary though!)
Want to know something terrible wrong with this whole dinner. I made enough for leftovers for lunch during the week and well...
After dinner I got sidetracked and the littles got my attention and I forgot to store it in the fridge and kept it out over night.
Somethings you just can't remember when you are half asleep.
