2 quick ones

Kale & Corn "Quiche"

This is an awesome way to eat more greens, which are a superfood. I don't like them on their own...but this recipe is super tasty as a side dish or as the main event.
1 bunch of kale - or any greens in season, spinach, chard, collards, etc
4-6 eggs (or eggwhites)
1 cup or so of frozen corn
onion, garlic, seasonings
- chop and sautee the onion, garlic and greens until they wilt down
- add your favorite seasonings
- dump in a bowl and add the frozen corn and eggs. mix.
- dump in a baking tin. i've used a muffin tin as well as a bread loaf tin.
- bake at about 350-400 until it sets up.
There is something magical about the bitterness of the greens with the sweetness of the corn. I know corn is a bit higher in carbs, so you can experiment with cutting back on it to your taste.
Also freezes well. Makes about 6 healthy servings.

Stewed Peppers
This sounds ridiculously simple, but there is something about the slow cooking of the peppers that really brings out their sweetness. Makes a great side dish next to any meat.

- 4 or however many green peppers. (one pepper per person. i don't really like green peppers raw but find this is a great way to eat them, especially when they are cheap. but you can also use red, etc)
- onion, garlic, favorite seasonings
- chicken stock


- spray some pam in a large dutch oven/soup pot
- rinse the peppers, but keep them whole. when the pot gets hot, put them inside.
- you want to turn them occasionally so they brown on all sides, but not burn.
- while you are doing this you can throw in some onion, garlic and seasonings around them and let those sautee as well
- when the pan gets close to burning, add a little chicken stock to deglaze the pan and help the peppers stew a bit more. cover the pan
- you're all done when the peppers are cooked on all sides but not mushy.

serve these whole. i usually leave the seeds in and just eat around them, but you could remove the seeds and stem before cooking.

One more

Tuna Tomato Rolls

This is an excellent for this time of year when those big beefsteak tomatoes are in season.. A mandolin really helps in this recipe to get the thin slices.

- one or two large ripe tomatoes
- pickles
- tuna, with or without mayo, as you like

Slice the tomatoes and pickles thin. I would say less than a quarter inch for the tomatoes and even thinner for the pickles. the mandolin helps here.

season the tomato slices, line with pickle slices, then plop a bit of tuna salad in the middle. Roll and enjoy. tuna+tomatoes+pickles=happiness

Thank you all sooooo much for this thread. I have found it to be a great resource for dishes that are quick and easy. I especially like the crock pot ones...with cooler weather setting in, it's nice to come home and have dinner ready!

I haven't gotten through the whole thread, so I'm not sure if something like this has been shared, annnnd, depending on what other toppings you add, there are more than 3 ingredients, but these are so good!!!!

Porto-Pizzas
2 large portobello mushrooms
LC Spaghetti sauce
Pepperoni
grated cheese

Clean out the mushrooms(I remove the stem and some of the gills) and spread with sp. sauce. Layer on the pepperoni and cheese to your hearts desire and bake at 350 until the cheese is melted and the mushrooms are starting to get tender.

Please forgive me if this has already been posted. I have read the whole thread as it developed, but i may not remember.

Easy, Easy Creamed Spinach


Place washed spinach leaves in a pot and turn on heat to med. Stir frequently, and the spinach will quickly steam down until it is cooked. Now stir in desired amount of cream cheese. Salt and pepper to taste, and a sprinkle of nutmeg if you like it. Very simple and yummy side dish.

Portions: i would normally use about 1/2 block of cream cheese (so 4 oz) to an avg sized bag of baby spinach, and i like mine pretty creamy. Of course you can add more or less cc, based on your own tastes.

shredded cheddar to taste

brown the ground beef with spices preferred
chop cabbage and add to beef until cooked down some
throw in the can of rotel tomatoes
after it's all cooked nicely throw in your cheddar to taste. the cheddar and juice from the rotel make a nice cheese sauce.

this ended up being really good. Hubby, who hates cabbage, gobbled it and gave me the approval to make it again! Awesome!!!
Made this 2nite with taco seasoning .... Yum!
