VeganMoFo – Five Minute Meal

One of my favorite (only?) super quick dishes consists only of a can of blackeyed peas mixed with a can of tomatoes with green chilies. It’s a meal in itself or a spicy side dish which Chase happens to love as well. Tonight I added some of my fresh greens to it and made it extra yummy. Beans and tomatoes are pretty much the only things I eat from a can. They just happen to go really well together. A side of steamed broccoli and some gluten free crackers and you’ve got yourself a five minute meal.


Ooops, I almost forgot your treat! How about one of Ricki’s Blondies?


I know you're like me and can’t wait for her cookbook!

Five-minute meal? You have me sold.

Five-minute meal that includes broccoli? Even better.

Five-minute meal that includes broccoli and ends with one of Ricki's blondies? Prepare your guest room; I'm moving in.

Anything that takes only 5 minutes and looks that good has my vote! And you are too sweet--glad you liked the blondies! :0)

Look out Rachael Ray, Diann is coming with her 5 minute meals!
Must. Have. Those. Blondies!!

Clever girl!! That sounds like a fantastic meal. And I must confess... I have never had a blondie. Have never heard of them until a few months ago. I guess I need to make them to see what all the fuss is about!

I'm the same as Lisa - never heard of Blondies up until a few weeks ago never mind tasted them! Yours look well yummy and as for that Bean and Broccoli combo! That just made my tummy growl!!
Broccoli's one of my favourite veggies. YUM!

I have a similar 5-minute meal, which is canned black beans, canned tomatoes, and frozen corn w/ a few spices! Those blondies were so good!

Usha said...

Anything that gets ready in five minutes is a winner for me...the blondie looks tempting :-)

jessy said...

oh my gosh - i thought i was one of the only people who did that - canned beans & canned tomatoes. a looong time ago back in college my friend Leah told me that one of the best damn things was a can of crushed tomatoes with a can of blackeyed beans - and a good crusty bread to eat it with! mmmmmm! i'm so glad i'm not the only one who loves that! i'm gonna have to try it with chilies, too! yay!

Sanja said...

Your blondy looks perfect. Indeed, I can't wait for that cookbook. You're doing an excellent job of selling it. ;-)

Blondies, please!

Monique a.k.a. Mo said...

That blondie looks delish! And I completely agree: if it comes in a can, it better be a bean or tomato!

Bex said...

Why must you all tease me with these Ricki testers?!?! I drooled on my keyboard again.
I have a strange love for canned tomatoes. I know I'm weird. I love fresh too. I think I just love tomatoes all round.

I have to add one more thing in a can—chipotlé in adobo sauce!
