Now that I’m back in the swing of things with my exercising (3 weeks in now – yay me!) I’m looking for other ways to be inspired in the health area. My family’s diet is pretty good, but I would like to veer away from meat and get more veggies involved. Morning Star Farms has a “Meatless Monday” challenge going on and I’m ready to participate. Not only do they provide great recipes, you have the opportunity to win wonderful prizes! (Find out more at their website: www.morningstarfarms.com
) Check out some of their recipes and maybe you’d like to take part as well:
|1/2 cup uncooked orzo pasta
|1 can (15 oz.) black beans, rinsed and drained
|1 cup frozen whole kernel corn
|1 cup thick and chunky salsa
|2 1/2 cups water
|1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
|1 package MorningStar Farms® Chik Patties® Original
|2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1. Combine all ingredients except MorningStar Farms® Chik Patties® Original and cilantro in 12-inch frypan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until mixture starts to boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 20 minutes or until pasta is tender.
2. Stir in MorningStar Farms® Chik Patties® Original and cilantro. Continue heating 5 minutes longer or until patties are hot. Serve hot.
