One-Pot Lentil Pasta

This pasta recipe contains lentils, pasta, creamy tomato sauce and is so deliciously awesome! In a large pot on medium-high heat cook oil, garlic, onion, bouillon cube, Italian seasoning, and red chilli pepper flakes for 2-3 minutes. Add splashes of water as needed to deglaze the pot. Add the pot 2 cups (500 mL) water along with the pasta, pasta sauce, cherry tomatoes, lentils, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, and capers. Bring to a gentle simmer and partially cover with a lid. Cook for 10-15 minutes on medium heat until pasta is al dente. Check on it every few minutes to stir to ensure nothing sticks to the bottom or burns. When the pasta is al dente, add the spinach and reduce to wilt. Serve it generously into some bowls, top with some freshly sliced basil leaves, and enjoy! (Recipe: Pick up Limes)

Chicken and Rice in a pot

Check out the beautiful recipe of this wholesome meal at Green Healthy Cooking. Here is an excerpt. Add diced vegetables to pan and stir-fry for a couple of minutes until slightly soft, then add brown rice and “cilantro water”, give it all a good stir, then use a spatula to flatten it all and make sure all rice grains are submerged in the water. Bring to a boil and as soon as bubbles form, add browned chicken legs on top, put on the lid, reduce the heat to low and let simmer for 40-50 minutes. Once all the water is absorbed by the rice it’s time to serve with some cilantro sprinkled on top.

Instant Pot Keto Chili

This chilli recipe is going to satiate your hunger and nutrient needs, all at once!
