I love clean out the fridge meals..! Unfortunately they aren't something you can write as a recipe since they are different every time.. BUT.. I hope that those of you who read this blog (is anyone still out there?) will trust your own cooking intuition and experiment! Frankly, most of my very favorite foods have come from this type of cooking. Use what you have. Don't be afraid to throw crazy flavors together and by all means, substitute ingredients!
(lately I've been using white vinegar in place of most acids with wonderful results)
I sprayed my beloved cast iron pan with cooking spray and sauted 1 small onion, 5 cloves garlic, lots of red pepper flakes, dried rosemary and 2 T quinoa for several minutes. Then I added 1 zucchini and some frozen veggies along with some Sun Dried Tomato Vinaigrette 1 cup of water. 1 cup of chickpeas and a handful of cilantro went in and I covered it, brought it to medium high heat for 20 minutes then stirred in fresh basil. I topped it with nutritional yeast and Chipotle Sauce.
I had this for lunch yesterday and again for dinner last night topped with yet another sauce/dressing I will be blogging about soon. Let's just say that I love FACEBOOK! The ideas shared there are great... and I will admit that most of my online food stuff is taking place on my PAGE!
Do you have a favorite clean out the fridge meal?
