#4 Meatless Monday

Today’s Meatless Monday dish is a simple recipe. I used vegetables that my husband and I would like to eat. You can use this as your template for whatever veggies you have in the fridge.

Grilled Veggie Pasta

Ingredients:

  • 1 small zucchini, halved lengthwise
  • 1 red pepper, stemmed, seeded and quartered
  • half onion, cut into 1/2 inch thick slices
  • 1/2 lb of asparagus
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 package corkscrew pasta – I used vegetable pasta made from tomato solids and dried spinach
  • 1 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 black pepper

Directions:

1.) Lightly brush vegetables with 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

2.) Place the vegetables on a stove grill. Cook on low-medium heat until vegetables are tender.

3.) While vegetables are cooking, cook pasta according to package directions.

4.) Once vegetables are cooked, remove them from the grill and allow to cool slightly. Cut the vegetables into 1/2 inch pieces.

5.) Toss vegetables with pasta in a large bowl, add the remaining oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper; toss together.

Dinner is served. šŸ™‚ YUM!

This is a perfect meal every time.

And I’m are so addicted to coconut water/juice. So refreshing

Goodnight!

My Kind of Sunday

Sunday is rest day. It means no working out. It’s church day, relax day,Ā and time-for-some-vietnamese-food day! Yay!

My husband and IĀ loveĀ all sorts of differentĀ cuisines! We are adventurous when it comes to food. šŸ™‚ VietnameseĀ is one of our favorites. For me, it’s the freshest and healthiest of all the Asian cuisines.

Here’s what we had today at our favorite little hole-in-the-wall Vietnamese restaurant.

For lunch:

Fried Spring Rolls… yum!!!

I had spicy beef and meatball Pho (soup). My favorite!

The portion was huge.Ā I couldn’tĀ finish itĀ andĀ had to takeĀ the restĀ home.

My husband had Beef Vermicelli bowl.

Then, we took home Banh mi sandwiches for our dinner tonight.

Do you love Vietnamese food too? What’s yourĀ absoluteĀ favorite cuisine?I šŸ™‚

How did you spend your weekend?

Hope you had a wonderful one!
