This month’s What I Ate Wednesday posts are all about showing some love for vegetables. It’s no secret that I do indeed love vegetables and try to eat plenty of them every single day. A meal without veggies is just not satisfying for me.
Here are some random meals from the past two weeks:
Smooth pea soup with smoked tofu cubes and sour cream. That was a very quick and delicious work day dinner.
This was and Italian inspired salad creation, with big white beans, sautéed mushrooms, tomatoes, artichoke hearts, and romaine lettuce.
Back to the veggies. I got this recipe for red lentil and carrot soup in a vegetarian magazine. It was ok, but a bit boring. Next time I’ll probably add some curry powder.
And another salad. This one had mixed greens, mushrooms, tomatoes, sweet corn, and cheese. I topped it with sunflower seeds for some extra crunch.
Friday night is pasta night in our house, and last Friday we made lasagna. We made two different batches, one for me with extra zucchini, the other for my husband with ground beef. Delicious and very filling.
You might call me crazy, but I even love having vegetables with my breakfast! Last weekend I made fried eggs in a bell pepper ‘basket’. I think it looks like a flower. That was a very tasty breakfast.
On Sunday I felt very experimental, so I cooked up some millet and black lentils. I topped it all with jarred marinara sauce, sautéed zucchini, and freshly grated parmesan. I love the look of this dish, and despite being kind of random it was also very delicious.
What’s your favorite way to include vegetables into your meals?
