Cous Cous w. Mushrooms and Veggies - Vegan MoFo 2013
It started with mushrooms.
I just wanted to cook some mushrooms.
Home, after an uneventful but nonetheless long day, especially after running to the grocery store to pick up a few things.
Hungry, but also too tired to think of such complexities of putting an actual meal together. Yet tossing a chik patty in the microwave and calling it a day was not appealing. Plus the groceries needed to be put away. Ugh. So it started with the mushrooms.
Nothing special - just some shiitake mushrooms from the store. Pan, toss, sizzle.
Kale!, I thought - I have KALE. That would be great with mushrooms. It's worked before.
So kale went in, more groceries placed inside the freezer.
Whoa, totally forgot about these veggies! Luckily, they were only from a couple days ago, so the cooked frozen veggies went in, along with their coats of olive oil. Then went some already cooked previously mentioned Trader Joe's Harvest Grains Blend along with a handful of spinach. Last, but not least, went in a tiny bit of Trader Joe's Vegan Mozzarella Shreds.
Creamy, carby, comforting.
