Wow! That's a giant picture!
I'm trying out giant pictures... what do you think?
This Big Bowl of Dinner is one of my most favorite meals for super quick weeknight dinners (or lunches). The whole thing takes about 10 minutes. You can't see it, but there's a big pile of delicious refried beans under all those veggies. Mmmm. Some nights, I don't get home from teaching until about 9 pm, and I am hungry. This is a perfect option for those nights - beans, veggies, and flavor. Perfect!
Here's the "recipe" - if you can call it that!
Big Bowl of Dinner
1 can vegetarian refries
1 tub fresh salsa
2 tsp ground cumin
Veggies of choice: broccoli, kale, corn, carrots, tomatoes, etc: cut up in bite sized bits
Optional garnishes: fresh lime wedges, mounds of fresh cilantro
Scoop the can of refries into a small pot. Add 1/2 the tub of fresh salsa, and the ground cumin. Mix it up. Turn the heat to medium high. Once it starts to burble a little, give it a few good stirs and turn the heat down to simmer. Meanwhile, if any of your veggies need steaming, now is the time. I usually steam my broccoli or kale for about 8-9 minutes. Once your veggies are done steaming, turn off the burner, and turn off the heat for the beans. Pour half of the beans into each bowl. Put half of the veggies in each bowl. Garnish with lime and cilantro. Enjoy your dinner that took you 10 minutes.
