Who will say that we cannot pull off a healthy meal out of your frozen ingredients from your freezer? I beg to disagree, Here is an example of that dish. Let me first show you the ingredients below.
2 bags of Quinoa & Brown Rice with Garlic (from Costco)
1/2 link of Smoked kielbasa (sliced)
2 Tbsp. olive oil
3 cloves of garlic ( crushed then sliced thinly)
1 small yellow onion (sliced thinly)
1 bag of frozen organic broccoli from Costco
18 pieces of Swedish chicken meatballs (boiled in 1 cup chicken broth)
1 cup Tuscan Tradition organic spicy tomato pasta sauce
1 and 1/2 cup of sliced bell peppers of different colors
1/4-1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1 can of 4 oz. Giorgio whole sliced mushrooms
1. Boil the thawed meatballs in 1 cup broth or water, drain the meatballs and set aside the boiled water.
2. Sauté the garlic and sausage and meatballs in hot oil in a huge wok.
3. Add the onions and mushrooms and mix well, add the crushed pepper flakes and stir, now add the peppers, boiled water and pasta sauce, stir until well combined and when it started to boil, simmer on low and submerge the rice into the sauce, add the broccoli then cover and turn off the wok for few minutes until the broccoli soften by steaming inside the dish. Serve immediately while still hot.
As always, Masarap!
