Most of us here in NC are snowed in. We got the storm of the century yesterday and it’s continuing today. Since I was home bound, I decided to make a healthy lunch for Marty and I.
On the menu, kale salad with roasted chickpeas & pumpkin seeds, with a homemade biscuit.
I found the recipes using my favorite method. Scrounging for ingredients in our cabinets and then asking google what I should do with them.
I made the kale salad first because the only way I can eat kale is if it is softened. After sticking that in the fridge, I moved on to conquer the biscuits. One of my favorite indulgences in the whole world are the cheddar biscuits at Red Lobster. These are the healthy version. I was so excited we had all of the ingredients. Well, we had stone ground grits and that worked fine. Tomato, tomata in my eyes.
Eating Well is one of my favorite healthy recipe sites. If you havent checked it out, you must.
Of course I had to try one of the biscuits right out of the oven. Yum! I couldnt believe all the flavor.
Next it was onto the roasted chickpeas. I actually added some pumpkin seeds to the pan and used some additional spices to give those guys some flavor. And I used feta instead of parm.
End result: YUMMO!
I hope everyone stays warm and safe today. Let me know if you find any good recipes we should try at our house!
