Something that Hit the Spot

with 3 comments


I can’t tell you how happy I was with this meal. After days of cookies and pasta (see tomorrow’s entry…tomorrow) and Tofurky sausages, nary a vegetable in sight, I was in the mood for some colourful food. This meal had all the advantages: made up entirely of healthy foods, quick and easy to make, and insanely delicious (I almost swore there, it was so good. Then I almost said “frickin’,” ultimately choosing “insanely.” Which could be problematic, I’m aware, but… it WAS insane how good it tasted. For a bunch of whole foods? I love greens and grains and all, but seriously.)
First, I cooked half a cup of quinoa in a cup of veggie broth (actually fake chicken-style broth, that’s what I had.) In a frying pan I sauteed up a red onion in some olive oil, adding a pinch of ancho chile powder, a dash of coriander and cumin and thyme. Then went in a chopped tomato. Then after a couple of minutes in went some chopped red kale and a can of rinsed black beans, and a bit of salt. I mixed it around and covered it while I made the guacamole: just an avocado, the juice of a lime, and a minced garlic clove. Added a bit of hot sauce to both the guac and the skillet, added in the quinoa, and there it was. Seriously, ineffable goodness. I don’t know what made this so good, but it was. And I have enough for lunch tomorrow.
