Still Cookin' And Cleaning Out the Cupboards

I'm still trying recipes I've found on food blogs!

Today I managed to use up a can of tuna and a can of white beans...not to mention all the spices, oil and vinegar were in my cupboards, too:

I did buy the veggies and the wraps. And this is really good.

You can find the recipe for Tuna and White Bean Wraps here.

(And in yesterday's Meatless Monday recipe, I used up 2 cans of tomatoes, 2 cans of beans, and fresh root veggies from the crisper drawer as well as veggie stock.)

There's still lots more in the cupboard tho' so don't go away, I expect you'll see more!

Meatless Mondays: Be Careful with That Stick Blender!

I have wanted to try this recipe for Moroccan Lentil Soup ever since I saw it. It took me a bit to find the garam masala (my Co-op had it) and the red lentils (again, check the Co-op, in the bulk aisle for both items). Then I had a dickens of a time finding vegetarian pinto beans!

I was so excited when I started smelling everything cooking away today...and it looked wonderful. The last instruction on that recipe is "with a stick blender, blend some of the soup." Note that key word, "some?" Yes, well, I used my stick blender for the first time. And before I knew what was up, I had the puree you see above!

I love it though - both the blender AND the soup - What a great meatless recipe this is!

Not Meatless but Pesca-Veggie

I was a pesca vegetarian for several years, and when I begin to think about doing this again, it's the route I know I can take without losing the benefit of the omega fats. So I was tickled today when I went to catch up on my blog reading and found this over on Cheap, Healthy, Good: Tuna & White Bean Wraps.

I have some of this in the cabinet already (which will help me *Clean Out The Cupboards* a little more...), but will need to pick up the veggies. I think it would make a nice lunch for work next week.

Things have been a little hectic around Nana Sadie's Place lately, so I've been scarce. I'm hoping to rectify that...Keep your fingers crossed!
