I have a few more dinner, lunch and snack inspirations coming your way!
I know that this is a weird combination but we made due with what we had at home last night for dinner and it actually came out super delicious!
Last night I had spaghetti and fried okra for dinner. You know I am all about quick delicious meals.
The fried okra is from the frozen section of our local grocery store, I checked the nutrition label and it is vegan! Some are not so always be sure to check the label beforehand. The tomato sauce that I used is store brand as well, I just added some extra ingredients to give it that home made vibe. I don’t have a specific brand that I always use, I try out different ones all the time. There are some that I like more than others, that I don’t feel over power the dish so I try to stick with those.
If you would like to replicate this dish I will list the ingredients below as well as quick and simple directions. I do not provide measurements because there really is no need to. I usually “eyeball” it and try to see what would work best with the amount of people that will be eating.
- tomato sauce (brand of choice or if you are adventurous.. home made!)
- frozen or fresh onion and peppers (I used frozen)
- spinach (fresh or frozen)
- vegan “ground beef” crumbles
- any side of veggies of choice, I decided to go with breaded okra
Boil pasta while simultaneously in another pan saute onion and peppers and vegan “ground beef” crumbles. If you would like veggies on the side I suggest you get those started as well. Once you saute everything for about 5-7 min, add tomato sauce of choice and spinach and cook that for about another 5 min or so. Then once everything is cooked you may plate and enjoy. Remember that you may need to cook a little longer depending on how much you are making. The amount that I made was for about 3 people.
That is it for this dish, very simple and easy to make and wont take up too much of your time. It is always better to cook at home because you know what you are putting into your dish. Even if you use store bought items it is still healthier than eating out. Although it is nice to go out once in a while and enjoy a meal that you do not have to cook.
