This is LITERALLY a one-pot wonder. My favorite kind of meal. This is another reason why I'm obsessed with my pressure cooker! Easy to make quick meals that taste amazing and clean up is a cinch! Lentils are one of my favorite foods. They are so easy to make (and quick with a pressure cooker), taste delicious, are incredibly filling, and very nutritious! The beauty of lentils is you can make them a million different ways. This is just one example below. Feel free to mix it up with whatever veggies you have, add pancetta, prosciutto, or simply make them plain with just a little garlic, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes with a drizzle of olive oil and shredded Parmesan cheese on top. Oh the possibilities! Oh and did I mention they are cheap?? A one pound bag is only about $4-5 and will make enough food for half the week for two people eating it every day! They are so good for you, I can't get enough! High in protein and fiber, low in calories, carbs, sodium and all the other bad stuff we don't like :) Below is just what I made tonight, but please feel free to mix it up and let me know what your favorite combos are! I make lentils almost weekly and will be sure to post other good combos in the future. I know that when the time comes and I have a family and need a quick nutritious meal on the fly, this will definitely be a good go-to! Let me know what you guys think!
Well, it's almost the weekend! Now that I have been working for a whole week, I feel like I kind of understand the whole TGIF thing. I am definitely not a morning person and so this week, my breakfast has basically revolved around cereal and oatmeal. So this weekend, I am looking forward to breaking out the eggs and having a real breakfast. I made this frittata a couple of weeks ago but due to various things keeping me very busy, I have been terribly negligent about posting. I won't take up too much of your time but I will tell you that this was definitely a fantastic breakfast and would make a great breakfast over the long weekend!
