Delicious and Nutritious… Pizza?

Like I said before, so many of my culinary creations come out of the fact that my fridge is eclectically stocked and I need to use some ingredients. I’m still truckin’ through those lentils and spinach and so tonight for dinner I came up with something new (and fantastic!). I will absolutely be making this one again. Here’s my dinner tonight!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 C cooked lentils
  • handful spinach
  • olive oil
  • garlic
  • tomatoes
  • (~1/4 C) tomato sauce
  • grated cheese (I like cheddar jack)
  • piece of bread (I like oat nut, but any bread will probably do)

Directions: Dice tomatoes to about the size of a thimble. Add olive oil and garlic to a pan; after heating, sauté tomatoes until they’re just about the softness you’d like, and add spinach. Continue cooking until spinach is just wilted, and add tomato sauce to pan. Add however much you like, I only used a little because there are also diced tomatoes, it’s just nice for the herbs and flavors. Continue heating until you feel all the ingredients have mixed together well. If you used a clove or chunk of garlic that is still visible, remove and throw it away. Now, take your “sauce” off the heat and put it onto your piece of bread. Sprinkle with cheese, and put in the oven on about 400 degrees until bread is toasted to your liking, and enjoy. 🙂

…and then I made dinner

First time I cooked a meal myself in the new casa! It was delicious. I made quinoa with roasted garlic and pecans smothered in sautéed bell peppers, zucchini, and summer squash. I wish I had taken a picture! The colors were beautiful and the taste even better, I think I’ll add some lemon next time though. I’d also like to try it with some garbanzo beans, but I couldn’t fine that at Target!
