Hey Guys! OK, so this is the last post before switching to www.glutenfreehappytummy.blogspot.com! (PS, it would be amazingly awesome if you bookmarked that) :)
EMAIL ALERT! So I heard all of your concerns about no longer receiving email notifications of blog posts once the switch happens.
SO – I have 2 alternatives for you:)
1. You are able to sign up to get my posts appear on your Google/Yahoo homepage, OR you can add it to your Google Reader. You can do that in the “subscribe” section on the right hand side of the new site.
2. You can message me your email address! I’m going to create a big “GFHT Email Group” and I will manually send you an email with my new posts! BEST OF BOTH WORLDS!! :D
Yay! I’m really excited about that 2nd option. You see, I called my dad yesterday, and explained to him how bummed I was that my email-readers would no longer have that option, and he came up with the brilliant idea of the email group! So thanks Dad!
Now, onto the food!
This month, I’m taking a class that meets every night between the hours of 5:30 and 9. Sooo, that makes cooking a bit impossible. SOOOO, my theme this month is MAKE AHEAD WONDERS!!
Tonight’s dinner was a Veggie Eggie Scramble! A super easy, “bake it and forget it” meal that’ll be waiting for you when you get home!
And no worries, my Vegan lovies! This can be made vegan by subbing crumbled tofu or tempeh, or rice for the egg whites!
And it’s gluten free, Body Ecology and Specific Carb Diet friendly with a Vegan Option!
Here’s what you need:
3 egg whites, beaten
healthy pinch salt and pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 zucchini, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1 cup spinach, chopped
1 cup broccoli, steamed
garnish: green onion or chives, chopped
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Start by steaming your broccoli. I do this by placing my frozen broccoli florets in a pyrex measuring cup, and microwaving for 1-2 minutes! (That’s the super fast/easy/no clean up way!) Drain the excess water and pat dry.
Take a small baking dish and line with parchment paper. (This makes it easier to take out after if cooks). Whisk your egg whites until frothy in a medium sized bowl. Add your spices and whisk again. Stir in your veggies. Pour into your parchment-lined baking dish and bake for 40 minutes. Serve garnished with chopped green onion or chives!
This couldn’t be easier for a make ahead meal! I literally just make this before I leave, and leave it in the oven (which is turned off) until I get home!
It may not be the “fanciest” of recipes, but sometimes, you just need a meal that’ll fill you up and is easy to make. Let me tell ya, the LAST thing I want to do when I get home at 9:30 is cook! So this is a great alternative!
And it is so delicious! You’ve seen this combination of flavors before…but that’s because it’s my favorite! The spicy chili powder with the warm cumin is fabulous with the sweet bell pepper and yummy broccoli.
It’s a nutritional powerhouse of a meal too! Chock full of veggies and unadulterated protein!
What’s your favorite “make ahead meal?”
