Dinner idea #1 was an Epic Fail.
I have a great veggie spiralizer thing i recieved as a gift a few years ago and decided that the two random zucchinis i had should be spiralized and sautéed and i would top them with some thick beany tomato based stew from the freezer.
I swear they were in the pan with a little oil- nothing else! no salt, nothing- for nanoseconds before turning into a soft wet mess.
It was cold and yucky today because it’s apparently still winter so soup sounded like a good enough way to use them.
Garlic, onion, a spoon of better than bullion veg base, some canned coconut milk, the sad soggy zucchini, salt and a hefty amount of white pepper, and good sized chunk of medium tofu went in the pot. I blitzed it smooth with the immersion blender. Wished i had cilantro or basil on hand, the neverending dill seemed like a bad idea. Added a squeeze of lime to my bowl and some of the crunchy seedy mix from trader joes with a little handful of hemp seeds.
Worked out pretty good! Crazy super bubbly overflowing the bottle ginger lemon kombucha a la carte.
And i’ll just keep having zucchini noodles raw if/when i make them again.
Apparently wasn’t filling enough, a few hours later i had an apple with almond butter with my tea
