It looks gross, it sounds gross but it’s not. Trust me, I’m a doctor. Okay I’m not a doctor, but I do love food more than anything. Even more than Star Wars. No, that’s a lie.
Anywayyyyy. I made this last night. Once again, me just throwing stuff I like in a pot and cooking it. I posted a photo of it to my Instagram story and got a lot of people asking how to make it so here it is.
- Cup of red lentils
- Cup of red quinoa
- Can of red kidney beans
- Can of green beans
- Cup of fried peas
- Cup of brown rice
- Bunch of spinach
Honestly, I just threw all of this in a pot with enough water to fill it up and a bunch of seasoning salts and hot sauce. Simmered it for the time it took me to argue with my room mate about something completely irrelevant (which happened to be about 45 minutes) and there ya go.
It has a great texture, almost like mashed potatoes. Loaded with protein, fiber and good slow digesting carbohydrates. This makes about enough food to last me two days if I’m eating it every meal. You could definitely make it last longer with a smaller appetite.
And the best part is… It’s mega cheap.
Make it your own. Throw some extra veggies or spicy beans in it, I don’t know. Stop conforming to rules and stuff. You’re a vegan, that’s supposed to be super punk rock these days or something.
