Well, it’s great to be back from Pensacola, Fl!! FYI, it was a six and half hour trek from Orlando with way too many stops for gas!! Meanwhile, Mr. Tolkien got to enjoy a lot of sleep time. Bless his heart for putting up with me! Lol. He was fantastic though and I definitely hope to be able to bring him on more work trips!
Now, the best part of being home, is food! Not spending money on something you think might be good, but just being able to make it and know it’s good ingredients!
Here’s a fast and simple sandwich type meal.
–Morning Star Chik Patties (or any brand of nonmeat patties-there’s a lot!)
-Cheese slices (farmers market quality, humane dairy farm aka local, or vegan cheese)
Yasss, three ingredient, protein packed meal!! Say whaaaat.
I grabbed Morning Star Original Chik Patties. These are vegetarian must haves ! Grabbed one out of the freezer and threw it in a small nonstick pan. (No oil, but you can add some olive or coconut oil). Pretty much cooked at medium heat for 3-5 minutes each side, color depends on your preference. I like toasty lol.
Next, I heated the Stonefire Roasted Garlic Naan on another skillet with no oil or butter. ( You can add these things if you want more flavor.) Additional note: I am Indian and I could technically make the Roti, Naan, Bake etc by scratch, but this is an awesome quick go to!! They’re found near the bakery or deli areas of supermarkets!
Then I grabbed my cheese sitting at room temperature. (Tip: have the cheese or vegan cheese sit out to room temperature, this helps make it melt easier when on warm food!)
I’m a cheesy gal, so, I used two slices. I cut the heated Naan in half. Placed a slice of cheese down, then my Chik Pattie, and then my other slice of cheese and the half of Naan! Now, I got me a Naanwich!! Now, this recipe can totally be spruced up with more ingredients: tomatoes, lettuce, avocado, hummus, pesto… I can go on forever lol!
Extremely flavorful in a short amount of time. Good for you too!
