weekly basics

brownsfortheweek

Once a week I like to spend a few hours cooking some basics for side dishes and salad bowls. This makes preparing meals for the week a bit easier as I don’t always have 45 minutes to cook rice or lentils.This week I did quinoa, brown rice and brown lentils.

  1. YUMO!! SHERI, quinoa is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO underrated! I love it!! I have been doing this same thing, forever. On Saturday’s, I spend the day chopping up all the veggies I love and putting them in tupperware. Then, during the week, I just take out scoops from each one and make a great dinner in 1.5 seconds. The extra time taken on the weekend to bulk cook saves TONS of time during the week. I make a great quinoa, cheesy, garlic, kale ball that I use instead of meatballs.
