Today is the kind of work day that I love; lots of phone calls from the media, securing interviews, deadlines, writing, last minute touches. . .I also throw myself into a big ball of anxiety! Tomorrow we have a pretty important press conference at work and I'll be happy when the day is over with. So I thought I would escape for a minute and write about the lunch I just enjoyed.
I made it last night for dinner and had some leftovers. I'm thinking that it's pretty healthy and filled with fiber and other good nutrients.
Some diced mushrooms
Sliced sweet onion
Can of white beans
Spinach (I used a bag of $.89 frozen)
Can of diced tomatoes
Any spices you can get your hands on.
Add some EVOO to a deep dish pan on the stove and heat
Add mushroom, onion and garlic. Cook on low heat for a few minutes.
Add can of diced tomatoes with about 2/3 of the sauce. Drain the rest from the can before dumping in pan.
Open can of white beans and rinse. Add to pan.
Add spinach. (I had to defrost mine first)
I then added some random spices that I had in my kitchen including garlic sea salt and a few others.
Dish into bowl and drizzle some balsamic vinaigrette on top.
There you are. Simple, yet nutritious and tasty. Actually a lady here at my office said that is how she makes sausage soup, but she also adds a can of broth and sausage.
-Back to work!
