Don't you just love it when you cook way too much food in the evening and then get to eat it again for lunch the next day? Well, I do! Of course it has to be the right kind of food...I'm not talking about scoffing cold pizza or poking at a soggy potato...
But I do find that vegetables, especially when roasted or stir fried, make for wonderful salads the next day.
This one here was rather tasty.
The previous night I had roasted a load of veg that needed using in my fridge. Literally a big mix of anything and everything; lots of carrots and parsnips (because I always get fooled into buying that HUGE bag in the supermarket because it's only 30P more than the smaller one...) a bit of broccoli, cauliflower, some sweet potato and garlic, and probably more. All roasted up in coconut oil. I then made a quick tomato sauce from tomatoes, a ton of onion, balsamic vinegar, the roasted garlic and spices. I cooked a small amount of quinoa and then once the veg was cooked added the quinoa to the veg and smoothed the whole lot in the tomato sauce.
Anyway, I was MEANT to be telling you about the salad!
So, we couldn't eat it all, despite me giving T two platefuls.
So the next day I simply heated the tomato-y veg through and bulked it up with some raw kale, spinach and toasted seeds.
You can rub a little coconut oil into the kale and spinach if you like, just to soften it up a bit.
Hope everyone's having a wonderful wednesday! x
