I am sorry to say how displeasing you are to my taste buds and have you ever thought about going to the gym?! You are flabby, soggy and no matter how much I tried to crisp your top layer, you still made me feel like I was eating a slimy sock. So here is where we part ways and never come in contact again.
Sorry, not sorry (sing like Demi Lovato’s song),
Oh my, that was a doozy I’m sorry you were in the middle of that, but I finally had to pull the trigger. I find so many recipes that require tofu, and seriously don’t understand the obsession with it. However, I did give in because I like to keep an open mind, but this was just on a whole other level of disgusting, crossed the line! Life does go on though and I still made dinner without the tofu.
I got the idea off Facebook, and kinda put my own spin on it. I would call this the Power Bowl because it is so well-balanced. What you’ll need:
- Carrots (I used shredded)
- Mixed greens
- Sweet Potato
- White onion
- Green Beans
- 1 can garbanzo beans
- Chili powder
- Sea salt
- Onion powder
I don’t have any exact measurements because I did this all on a whim, so trust your gut and go on a whim with me!
I cubed the sweet potato and threw it on the sheet pan with EVOO, salt, pepper, onion powder and dried rosemary, just give it all a good sprinkle, then spread the potatoes around the pan so everything has a good mix. I put them in the oven at 375 and when they were half way done I put the brocboli, green beans and onion on the pan. I also reseasoned the veggies and gave them another drizzle of EVOO.
Then, I started boiling the quinoa and started cooking the garbanzo beans on the stove with just a little water and EVOO, seasoned it with salt, pepper, paprika, sriracha and chili powder. Let it simmer for a couple of minutes and then eat up!
I put a little quinoa in a bowl, shredded carrots, mixed greens, veggies and garbanzo beans on top! It actually didn’t turn out half bad!
Now I will be honest, quinoa really has no flavor, but I like it because it is so good for you and I eat it so I have a different mix of whole grains in my diet. Being vegetarian I have really been trying to keep a wholesome diet and eat a lot of different foods so my body can absorb a variety of nutrients. Just being a smart thinker instead of a fart smeller, you feel?
Now that you made such a good healthy meal, kick your feet up and RELAX! I have been doing it all day, I just started This Is Us on Tuesday and I am almost caught up with the current season. I know, I’m obsessed, it’s almost unhealthy, however it hasn’t effected my school work so I don’t see a problem with it! Anyone else obsessed? I can’t wait to watch Jacks episode, I don’t know how I will handle it because I love his character so much, I also love Beth she is such a strong woman.
Okay my hipsters, watch out for that tofu and spread love,
