Fast, Fresh, Five Ingredient Recipe: Stir “Fry” Veggies Over Couscous
I love to throw things together for healthy recipes, but it has got to be fast with an 8 month old crawling around. But just because something is easy and convenient doesn’t mean it’s gotta be unhealthy! Move over, Mac-n-cheese, for this delicious, healthy five ingredient recipe!
5 Fresh Ingredients:
3. leafy green vegetable like spinach
5. Garbanzo beans
Prepare couscous according to directions ( I added oil & salt to mine). Set aside.
Dump garbanzo beans in a bowl and microwave 3 minutes. Set aside.
Start some coconut oil in a pan.
I love using coconut oil to cook everything also. I even make scrambled eggs with it! Sidenote: it’s great for diaper rash and face moisturizer too!
Next, Add in the mushrooms (*and optional cayenne and garlic). Stir around a couple minutes.
Once the leaves cook down, add some garbanzo beans. Stir around a minute or so….
And there it is–a five ingredient recipe that is healthy and fast to make! I love a five ingredient recipe like this because it is filling because of all the fresh greens and protein but also leaves you feeling good. I was in a vegetarian mood for lunch, but this would be an awesome fast, fresh, five ingredient recipe with chicken, beef, eggs, or tofu. Or you could throw in hummus instead of the garbanzo beans and turn it into a wrap. (That’s that’s the way I used the leftovers from this on the next day.)
