I have been living on candy and chai lattes for the past few days- I have no idea why- and yesterday my candy streak ended at P.F. Chang's in a pile of fried deliciousness and "asian" mojitos (I had to use a giftcard, otherwise I don't necessarily recommend that place-- unless you like all your food fried and drowned in sweet syrup). This morning my body seemed to yell at me for something healthy and/or vaguely sustenance-related, so I made a (mostly) healthy dinner:
Portabella Mushroom Ravioli from Fresh & Easy (love that place!) doesn't have preservatives and comes in a frozen package for the lazy cook (ahem, moi). I don't like foregoing my beloved bread and cheese, so this was a good compromise ;)
I melted a little butter (that's why I said "mostly" healthy) and added a little garlic to warm and mellow before tossing in fresh green beans and a little lemon juice to lightly sautee.
Finished! I tossed the rav's in a drizzle of olive oil and topped them with red sauce and a little shredded carrots. It was a gamble, but the carrots ended up being the perfect crispy balance for the soft rav's.
Green beans + Carrots + Mushrooms! My mom would be so proud ;)
What do you cook when you want to be healthy?
