If you can’t tell by my documented eating habits I generally like to eat organic and wholesome foods. I’m not very big on ‘diet foods’ or ‘processed foods’. Especially with meat I purchase grass-feed/local 95% of the time.
For Easter our very sweet landlord bought us frozen meats from Omaha steaks. I would never let perfectly good food go to waste. I hate wasting food.
Clearly, this is not the most healthiest burger patty. But this does not mean that I can not make a somewhat healthy meal from it….
Veggies n’ Dogs brings you ‘almost vegetarian’ chili.
In a large sauce pan heat 5 garlic cloves and a chopped onion in olive oil.
Add 1 can of diced tomatoes
Then a can of kidney beans. Those green things are chopped up leeks I randomly decided to throw in.
“What’s going on????”
Mix in cooked quinoa
Top off with grated sharp cheddar cheese, chili powder and salt.
I think I redeemed the nutritional value of this meal pretty well. The chili created 4 servings between us. So instead eating 23 grams of fat each, we ate about 6 grams of burger fat per each serving. Not too shabby.
Have a good night!
