In a desperate attempt to come up with something to blog about, I asked a friend for ideas. He was watching a cooking show at the time, and said I should do recipes every once in a while. It’s trendy, and it would introduce new readers to my blog.
I allowed that this was a great idea, but there’s a slight problem. I hate to cook. I’m not bad at it, mind you. I’d just much rather be doing just about anything else. If a recipe has more than about 5 ingredients, I generally can’t be bothered. Usually, I’ll make a huge batch of something or other and then eat it for days. My crock pot is my best friend.
Surely I can’t be the only one who feels this way. So I’ve decided that every once in a while I will share one of my cooking hacks with you, my fellow lazy chefs. May it give you more time for Netflix.
This first one is one of my favorites, because it’s so freakin’ easy and delicious it’s ridiculous. It’s even pretty healthy! Imagine that!
Spinach Comfort Food
2 Large boxes of spinach (Preferably organic, because spinach is one of the most pesticide-laden veggies in your produce aisle these days.)
1 can of stewed tomatoes.
1 can of garbanzo beans.
1 block of feta cheese.
Coat the bottom of a BIG pot with olive oil, and heat it. Add as much of the spinach as you can. Stir. This takes patience, because it won’t all fit at first. As it wilts down, there will be more room. The object is to get all the spinach wilted. Sometimes I add a little more olive oil halfway through. Add the stewed tomatoes, garbanzo beans (including the liquid) and crumbled feta. Heat and stir some more until the garbanzo beans are soft.
There you have it. Simple. Filling. Tastes even better as leftovers! Enjoy!
If you have any super simple recipes you’d like to share, let me know. I’ll give you full credit.
