So this is an example of a recipe I’ll make when I’m too lazy to actually cook and need something quick. I stayed up all night last night finishing The Hunger Games and finished it around 130am. This morning I woke up at 1030am when I had meant to get up earlier to get a few things done. That did not happen and I still needed a quick meal before work!
I basically take a ready made soup and then add a bunch of stuff in there, usually some orzo and a bean or lentil for the protein. Plus some green veggies, usually kale or collard greens. If I’m not TOO lazy, then I’ll add some other veggies like carrots. I was telling this to the bff and she said this is almost exactly the same meal she feeds baby!! Ah well, it’s what happens when you’re single and have no one else’s mouth to feed. Plus, it is simple and it is delicious! Sometimes I have also done just mashed potatoes for dinner which I know is not at all nutritionally good for you at all, but it sure is satisfying 🙂
This one in particular was a butternut squash soup. I usually get the Pacific or Imagine brand soups. Sometimes I’ll get the Happy Planet soups. I tried the Amy’s brand and I wasn’t really a big fan of it, though I’m usually a fan of her other frozen foods selection.
I added a can of chick peas. Two hand fulls of orzo pasta. A bunch of kale. A tomato. Cook for about half an hour or whenever the orzo is soft enough to eat. Add some salt and pepper to taste and I have a meal that will last me a good few days this week!
