As I learn to cook, I stick to a lot of recipes, but this weekend, I couldn’t find anything that resembled exactly what I wanted, so I developed my own.
For lunches, I love to throw something together in one big pot, wait a few hours, and voila! I also like to include vegetarian options as I tend to eat a lot of chicken for dinners and it helps mix things up!
In a crockpot:
- 1 cup quinoa
- 1 can coconut milk
- 1 can tomato paste
- 1 can chickpeas
- 1 cup lentils
- 1 sweet potato
- 2 cups water
- vegetables of choice (I went with broccoli, cauliflower, and red pepper)
- 1 tbsp curry powder
- 1 tbsp cumin
- salt and pepper to taste
- (one may want onions, but I find them to be YUCK)
Throw everything together, stir, cook on low for 4 hours.
This provided me 5 servings- perfect for the week!
