Posts Tagged ‘Easy Weeknight Meal’

One of my friends isn’t feeling well, so she had to cancel our dinner plans for tonight (if you read this, I hope you feel better!). She gave me plenty of notice, but then I got into a busy spiral of work and wedding planning and failed to plan for dinner. But not to fear! This Mediterranean vegetarian salad will save me!

This sucker is a lot of food for a low amount of calories. I always end up feeling full and my blood sugar staying even.

Ingredients:

Preparation (11 minutes):

  • Prepare the Falafel mix according to package instructions
    • Mix with water
    • Let sit for 10 minutes
    • Pan fry
  • Put your salad together. The hummus and yogurt dip act as dressings.

Nutrition info:

Note: I didn’t factor the cooking spray, cucumber, and spinach, because these are so small calorically it’s laughable, but if you want to tack on 20 calories for that, be my guest.

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 corn tortillas per person
  • 1 can Bush’s Cocina Latina Refried Black Beans (any variety)
  • 1 can Enchilada sauce, medium heat
  • 1 small ripe avocado
  • 2-3 eggs per person
  • Shredded Mexican-style cheese

Directions:

  • Heat oven to 400 degrees, put tortillas on a cookie sheet and bake until they are completely crispy all the way through the tortilla (you could break them into corn chips)
  • While the tortillas are baking
    • Put refried black beans in a sauce pan and heat over low heat until warm
    • Portion-out enchilada sauce into 4 containers, freeze 3 for later use, heat one in either the microwave or in a sauce pan on low heat
    • Cut-up the avocado into small chunks
  • Fry the eggs to sunny-side up
  • Right before serving (otherwise the tortillas won’t be crunchy)
    • Place the tortillas on the place
    • Sprinkle cheese on the tortillas
    • Put about ½ of a spoonful of enchilada sauce on next
    • Put abut a spoonful of black beans on next
    • Put a couple of chunks of avocado on top
    • Place the hot egg on top of all of it
  • Serve immediately with the leftover black beans

In terms of how to eat them, some people are very polite and break off little pieces at once. We’re fans of picking up the whole thing and biting into it. Yep, the egg runs, but you can scoop up that yellowy goodness (or let it drip on your side of black beans) with a spoon later.
