My husband’s company does a food challenge every week. They send out a healthy recipe and if they make it, take a picture and submit the picture, they are entered into a raffle. He has yet to win a prize, but we have gotten some good meals out of the recipes.
The one this last week was a Moroccan Lentil Soup with chickpeas and I modified it so that I could indulge as well. And I think it is SOOOO good. I have been craving some fun spices and a tad bit of heat. Love me some Moroccan food and this hit the spot! Here is my modified recipe…
-1/2 cup of chopped green onion-
-2 cloves of garlic (I used the frozen squares from Trader Joes)
-1 tsp of olive oil
-1 tsp of cumin
-1 tsp of ground coriander
-1 tsp of turmeric
-1/4 tsp of cinnamon
-1/4 tsp of pepper
-3 cups of chicken broth
-1 cup of water
-2 cups of chopped cauliflower
-1 (14.5oz) can of diced tomatoes (Make sure they are IP ok)
-2 cups of spinach
-Protein of choice
On the stove, saute the onions, garlic, oil, cumin, coriander, turmeric, cinnamon and pepper for about 3-4 minutes. Add broth, water, cauliflower, tomatoes, and stir until well combined. Bring to a boil, once cauliflower is soft, add in the spinach and precooked protein of choice. Once warm, serve. Makes 3 servings, 2 cups of veggies per serving.
*Freezes well for meal prep. I tried it both with shrimp and chicken and I liked the shrimp the best, but I think any protein will work well. Other veggies could be incorporated as well.
