I am a big fan of one-pot meals, especially ones I can put in the rice cooker and leave them to do their thing. The other night I threw a cup of brown rice, a can of rinsed kidney beans, a cup of canned coconut milk, a cup of water, my leftover three-ingredient tomato sauce, and half a veggie bullion cube in the rice cooker.
Along with about 1/4 cup of split peas, because well why not?
About 40 minutes later I had the creamiest, mildly tomato-y, protein packed red beans and rice, that I served with some leftover brussels sprouts.
I stirred together a cup of peanut butter, 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce, and 2 tablespoons cacao powder until a doughy substance came together.
Then I poured in some millet puffs, probably 1/3 to 1/2 cup.
I formed a big ball out of it all.
And pieced that out into smaller snack-size balls.
I suspected the millet puffs might get soggy from the applesauce, and I was right, but they still taste fine! Next time I’ll probably use oats or something more hearty as the add in.
Tomorrow I’ll be showing you a couple of awwwwwwesome dips I made, and my first attempt at using chard leaves for wraps!
I’m drawing a blank on a question for you all… so, uh… tell me some good news! Or a joke. Or your favorite quote. Just talk to me. I love you guys. 🙂
