We made a bruschetta chicken zucchini dish at my most recent Pampered Chef show, but in my own life I am not eating pasta or cheese, so I had to come up with my own version. I cooked up some lean ground beef and measured out 4 ounces. Then I used 1/3 of a zucchini and made zucchini strips with my veggie strip maker, covered them with water and microwaved for 5 minutes. Then to my manual food processor, I added 2 chopped Roma tomatoes, 2 pressed garlic cloves, 2 T olive oil, and about 1/3 cup basil leaves, and processed it until it was pretty chopped up (I don't like big chunks). I put the ground beef in the bottom of a bowl, added the zucchini "noodles," then put 1/2 of the tomato/basil mixture on top. SO GARLICKY (garlicy? garlic-y?) but SO GOOD.
Today I made two pies for my family, and in the midst of baking realized I needed to eat lunch. I steamed some brown rice and broccoli, threw in a little cooked chicken, a tiny bit of soy sauce and some sriracha. SO GOOD.
In case you hadn't noticed, I basically eat everything in a bowl these days and I'm totally fine with that.
