Yesterday's "once a week cooking"
Sunday, January 17, 2016
Saturday was the day for me to cook up a storm. It was quite a mess, but I do not mind cleaning once big mess as opposed to 6-7 smaller ones. First I made a large vegetable lentil soup.
I cooked and mashed a double recipe of the lentils so that I could add them into a different soup later.
Second, I made five salads. I leave out the tomatoes, avacados and extras that spoil. Those I add at the last minute.
I blanched up some broccoli to go into the salad, and also into a morning juice.
I did not take any photos of my juicer, but I juiced some kale, parsley and ginger along with the broccoli. I also threw in the last of my red peppers.
Finally, I cleaned up the mess. Four hours of serious cooking. I have chilli, chicken soup, quinoa with veggies, and some black bean soup to help me finish up the week.
I love cooking once a week!
