italy, Mexico, and Japan for dinner

Yuuuuum I can barely contain my excitement to share the amazing dinner I had last night with you all! It was a taste of three countries, all on the same plate. Everything was crunchy, fresh and simply delicious.

After a long day gardening, dog-walking and nannying, I was supah glad to throw this delicious dinner together in less than a half hour!

There’s nothing like fresh-picked kale out of the garden to add a delicious raw crunch to any rice dish. I simply added one large chopped leaf of kale, half of an organic carrot and a dash of soy sauce to some pre-cooked basmati rice I had in the fridge and voila! Crunchy rice side dish.

Next thing I did was wash a couple of medium zucchinis & crank them through my veggetti to produce these beautiful zoodles. I sautéed 4 sliced baby bella mushrooms, 1/4 a red pepper and 1/4 a yellow onion in a pan and added the veggies to my zoodles with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and a dash of s&p. Mix together BAM an amazing veggie pasta side! Amazing.

Thirdly came the veggie burger. It was a pre-made MorningStar spicy black bean burger that I simply microwaved for 90 seconds out of sheer laziness. I normally cook these babies in the toaster oven but was real hungry so I opted on the microwave. (Ya win some, ya lose some).

Atop the burger I piled fresh-picked lettuce, cilantro and dill from my garden (picked 15 minutes before!!) and some hot salsa. A beautiful combination of spicy, crunchy flavors in between a fluffy bun.

I had two plates of this.

Yay for vegan dinners and netflix after a long day ❤
