I can’t say that I’ve been cooking anything too elaborate lately. I’m still figuring out the whole gluten-free thing (without relying on $$$ specialty products!), and I’ve been getting home from work pretty late the past few weeks. When I come in the door around 8:00 PM, I’m usually ready to just throw some shit together and change into my pajamas!
So, tonight I thought I’d show you an example of one of my “just throw some shit together” dinners. The basic recipe (if you want to call it that) is simply to include a serving of grains, protein, fat and green vegetables.
Behold tonight’s bowl of quick, easy, gluten-free yumminess.
1 cup pre-cooked quinoa
Big handful organic baby spinach
3 slices roasted turkey
1 slice sharp cheddar
salt and lots of pepper
First, I sauteed the spinach in a little olive oil before adding in the turkey slices to heat through at the last minute. While that was cooking, I microwaved the quinoa for 45 seconds.
I added the spinach and turkey to the quinoa, and then topped it all with a slice of cheese and salt & pepper. (meanwhile… Elderly Rocky slept)
Then I fried the eggs until the white was firm and the yolk was still slightly runny.
I put the eggs on top and added more salt & pepper.
That’s it! Dinner was done in about 10 minutes and I only dirtied one pan in the process.
With a glass of pinot grigio and some Jeff Lewis on Bravo, this was a surprisingly satisfying dinner.
I’m off to do some laundry before heading to bed.
Have a great night! <3
