one pot wonder

Cooking healthy is not always easy or fast, and usually dirtiest up a tons of dishes. Here is my favorite stlye of healthy cooking thats easy and simple and doesn’t add up to a lot of dishes. !!!! This is not exactly a recipe its more like guidlines, every time I make it  comes out different. Just use what is in your frig and always experiment with new grains and vegetables

First you start with the big trio:

Protein, Vegetables, Grains

then like to pick a stlye and a flavoring like White wine or Soy sauce, or chicken broth.

Here are my three favorite combinations

-ground turkey,  bulgur wheat, Mediterranean vegetables (zucchini, peppers, eggplant, chard, rosemary)

-chicken thighs , buckwheat,  harvest vegetables (onions, carrots, celery, butternut squash, parsley)

-salmon,  quinoa,  asian vegetables (broccoli, peas,  spring onions, mushrooms and ginger)

1. Use oil spray to grease the pan then sear the protein, set aside.

2. In the same pan add the vegetables one at a time from the hardest to cook (ex. onions, eggplant, zucchini, peppers)

3. Add the grain to the vegetables (except in the case of buck wheat which should be toasted in a dry pan, until you can smell the grain and then added, I usually do this before I cook the protien)

4. add liquid (water, broth with wine soy sauce, chilli sauce, oyster sauce, anything you have), same amount as the grain and salt and pepper and any other spices, garlic, paprika, ginger

5. Add the seared protein on the vegge and grain mixture

6. place chard or parley on top of the protien and clamp the top onto the pan

7. wait 15 mintues on low and then serve
