Favorite simple healthy weekday recipes?

7 years ago

Hi all! Guess I'm a thread posting maniac this week. DH and I are making some changes to the way we eat. I was wondering if you have a solid gold, absolute favorite, simple recipe for weekday meals?

I don't cook much so I only have one recipe to contribute, this is a good one to cook from the pantry. I cook without onions but I think it's tastier with so I have included them below.

Veggie black bean chili

- I use a large saute pan for this one pot meal.

  • 2 small or one large onions, diced

  • 2 cloves garlic, diced

  • 2 red bell peppers, diced

  • 2T canola oil

- Saute over medium heat until onions softened, about 8 minutes.

  • 1T cumin
  • 2T chili powder
  • 2t oregano

- Stir in for two minutes

  • 2 15oz cans black beans, drained (I use low sodium)
  • 1 28oz tin roma tomates, I use whole and chop them, keep the juice (I use low sodium)
  • 1 c salsa

- add and bring to a boil,

  • 2-3 c veggies to taste (I use corn kernels, mushrooms and zucchini)

- add, wait until boils again, then simmer for about 15 minutes and serve.

Serve with your choice of greek yoghurt/sour cream, shredded cheese, and cilantro.
