Creamy Rice with Salmon

I got this rice with salmon (arroz con salmon) recipe from a food blog written by a Columbian woman.  I’m so sorry I’ve lost track of the url of that web site but I made a lot of changes to the recipe anyway, so it barely resembles the original.

I removed several ingredients, changed several others, and used leftovers to compile the dish instead of creating it from scratch.  It was surprisingly good!  I served it with sautéed beet greens but I recommend choosing a side veggie that’s more neutral in flavor, like broccoli or green beans.  The beet greens were good but the strong flavor overpowered the more subtle taste of the rice dish.

Pasta with Roasted Veggies

Pasta with Roasted Vegetables

Serves: 2 people + leftovers
Hands-on time: 30 min
Total time: 45 min

I adapted this recipe for pasta with roasted vegetables from a similar one I found on the Forks Over Knives website, which uses summer veggies. Since it’s winter I wanted to use winter veggies, so I swapped out the zucchini and eggplant for brussels sprouts and carrots.  Their recipe doesn’t use any oil, but I like the texture of pasta better when it has a little oil on it. Gluten-free pasta in particular tastes a bit pasty without oil. I also reduced the quantity to serve 2 people, so you’ll want to increase it if you have more mouths to feed.

Butternut Carrot Breakfast Porridge

Easy No-Cook Oatmeal

Serves: 1
Hands-on time: 5 minutes
Total time: 1 hour

Also called “muesli” in many parts of Europe, you don’t need to soak this no-cook oatmeal overnight. A good one-hour soak in the morning will do the trick. Make it while you’re waiting for your coffee and by the time you get out of the shower it’ll be ready to go. Continue reading “Easy No-Cook Oatmeal”

Polenta Sausage Skillet

Substitute leftover chicken sausage for the ground turkey. Chop the cold sausages into small pieces.

  1. Skip the turkey browning in step 3, add sausage when you add the marinara sauce.
  2. Omit meat altogether, or substitute 1/2 can (drained) of chickpeas to make this a vegetarian dish.
  3. Use the spaghetti sauce you made on Sunday night for the marinara sauce.
  4. Omit oregano (the sauce has plenty)
