Also accepting this week’s mini challenge is AnskySue, who not only braved cooking with fruit but also took on dinner without a recipe. The result? Cleaned plates, happy family and leftovers for lunch!
Those of you who know me know that I never ever ever cook without a recipe. I am just not that talented in the kitchen. But tonight? Well it was a thing of beauty as I stirfried my way into the mini challenge for the week. I started with Birds Eye steamed brown rice (find it in the freezer section – brown rice is 4 minutes away from perfection. And the ingredients? Brown rice and water. Couldn’t ask for an easier way for a quick and tasty whole grain!).
Then I stir fried some chicken in olive oil and added in edamame, broccoli, carrots and cauliflower with just a splash of teriyaki sauce. When everything was cooked, I tossed in a cup of diced pineapple and cooked it long enough to heat the pineapple. I served the stirfry over the brown rice. Voila – fruit included in our healthy and delicious dinner! Bonus of enough leftovers for two lunches! And my son and husband both cleaned their plates!
