Easy meatless meals
So for Ash Wednesday, we had a very easy meatless meal: General Tso’s mixed vegetables (home made… sort of!)
This is my “go to” meal when we want to eat out, but don’t want to go out.
I call my husband at work & ask him to pick up some of our favorite sauce (General Tso’s sauce) at ANY Chinese restaurant. He just calls & orders “Two orders of General Tso’s sauce – just the sauce, for pick-up” ($1.75 for 2 servings of the sauce). We get two orders because I like to make a lot for dinner and have enough left over for lunch for my husband to take to work on the following day.
I make brown rice (usually about 4 servings) – I get the boil in the bag, because it makes it so much easier.
Take frozen stir-fry vegetables and heat them up in the skillet with the sauce. (I bought a HUGE bag at Aldi for $3.75) You could add tofu, too.
Put the rice on a plate & pour your vegetables over it. That’s it!
Easy, meatless meal that taste like we ordered out. 🙂
– Add chicken for a regular meal during the week. (Slice it very thin into slivers if you add chicken)
(The kids like the taste of this, too!) I add fish sticks with their dinner on meatless nights (Fridays during Lent).
