I tried a recipe for brussels sprouts last night that I liked a lot, the Girl ate, the Boy, my picky eater, wasn’t happy about the one bite rule but didn’t have anything really bad to say when he finally tried it. I stole it from Mary at Owlhaven, check her comment in the post to find the recipe.
I just made a meal this week that was really simple to make and my family really liked.
Cook quinoa in a rice cooker, add a lot of turkey or chicken bouillon to the water, or cook it in broth.
Open some cans of black beans, or make some in the morning in the crockpot. Add to the beans, cumin, pepper, oregano, Cajun seasoning, dried cilantro leaves, chili flakes, and chopped bell peppers. (I actually roasted the pepper I had and then pureed it with some of the beans and added it all back in, but my husband doesn’t like the texture of cooked peppers if they are in larger pieces.) Puree about a 1/4 cup of the beans and stir into the rest to make creamy, serve with the quinoa and a green salad.
I think this would taste really good with corn too, but I didn’t have any.
