Quinoa added to Tomatoes = Complete Meal

Quinoa is a great side on it’s own or ingredient to bulk up other foods, such as stuffings!  It’s actually a seed, not a grain, but the texture is similar to a grain or even a couscous, but a little more fluffy.  It has a mild, slightly nutty taste, but it’s mild, so it really absorbs any flavors you mix with it. 

But the really magic of quinoa is in the health benefits!  1 cup of cooked quinoa has 8g of complete protein and 5g of fiber.  It also has Iron, Manganese, Lysine, and magnesium!  

That’s why combining quinoa with veggies really does give you a complete balanced meal with vitamins, fiber, protein, and other nutrients.

EQUIPMENT NEEDED

Nothing special for this one! Just a large sheet pan (I use a 17×11) and a small-medium pot with lid for the quinoa and a large pan or skillet for the filling, such as my favorite 12″ Ceramic Pan.

Oh, and mincing garlic is made super easy with a Garlic Press.

PREP-AHEAD FOR YOUR STUFFED TOMATOES

We are all busy and making dinner during the week can be overwhelming. Here are steps you can prep in advance. (See full recipe below) 

For this recipe, you can make the filling and stuff the tomatoes ahead and then bake them right before serving.

Using a paring knife, cut off the top of the tomato. Then cut around the inside wall of tomato on an angle inward to remove the center and hollow out the tomato. Scrape any access out with a spoon, careful not to poke through the tomato. Save the insides by removing them into a bowl for the filling.  I also dice up the top that I cut off.

Place the tomatoes on a sheet pan.  

    

Next, make the filling, which is just breaking up the chorizo and rendering it in a pan.  

Add the tomatoes insides, garlic, cooked quinoa, oregano, salt, and pepper.  Mix to combine.  Turn off the heat and mix in the parmesan and the mozzarella.

Can I substitute another meat for the Chorizo?

Yes, you can substitute with an Italian Sausage or Pancetta.  You could also use bacon!  This recipe has pre-cooked chorizo, so just be sure to fully cook through any raw meat if you go that route.

Can I use another filling besides Quinoa?

You could….but it really changes so much in this recipe!  I highly recommend trying the Quinoa.  If you absolutely do not like or cannot get Quinoa, you could substitute with rice or couscous or even bread crumbs. 

COOK YOUR STUFFED TOMATOES 

Bake the tomatoes for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes so that the filling and the juices can settle. 

ENJOY!  😍 Carrie

I used the most amazing Banza Cavatappi Pasta, made from chickpeas.  The hollow cavatappi curl hugs and holds the sauce in all the right places so each bite is saucy perfection!

Health-ifying a Classic

My Mom would make Beef Stroganoff for special occasions growing up.  I adore it!  Even as an adult, when I would go home to Chicago to visit, she would always have Beef Stroganoff for me.  I really wanted to make a healthier version of this classic beef dish so I could enjoy it more often with ingredients that I always have on hand. 

Here are the 4 changes I made to the recipe:

  1. Replaced beef with lean chicken breast
  2. Thickened the sauce with a cornstarch slurry so that I could cut down on the sour cream added
  3. Added spinach for color, texture, vitamins, and nutrients
  4. Replaced regular egg noodles with a healthier and gluten free pasta option made from chickpeas!  

Let’s talk about that last one.  I wanted to find a gluten free pasta that could stand up to this delectable sauce and not turn to mush.  Enter BANZABanza has a variety of pasta shapes and sizes all made with Chickpeas!  That means they have more fiber, more protein, and less carbs than a regular pasta made from flour.

Here are some other easy recipes that you can use Banza pasta in!

EQUIPMENT NEEDED

No hightech gadgets for this one, just your best and largest non-stick skillet/frying pan! I use my absolute favorite 12″ Ceramic Pan, which is great because food really does slide right off with minimal oil and I don’t have to worry about food sticking and burning.  It comes with a glass lid, which is perfect for watching your dinner cook!

Oh, I also like to cut my raw chicken with kitchen shears, but you can also just cut with a knife. And mincing garlic is made super easy with a Garlic Press.

PREP-AHEAD TO MAKE YOUR CHICKEN STROGANOFF RECIPE COOKING KIT

We are all extremely busy and making dinner during the week can be overwhelming. Here are the steps you prepare in the day(s) in advance and store in the fridge as your meal Kit… (See the recipe below for more details)

If you’re just looking to get ahead on the ingredient prep, then start by prepping the chicken.  Cut the chicken breast into strips. I like to do this with kitchen shears, but you can also just cut with a knife.  Store sealed in fridge until ready to cook.

COOK YOUR CHICKEN STROGANOFF RECIPE 

Start by cook the pasta.  Be sure you don’t do this too early that it gets cold, but if you start to boil the water at the same time you start cooking the chicken, you will be good!  Bring the water to a boil and then add the pasta. Stir the pasta so it doesn’t stick together.  Bring back to a boil and cook for 5 minutes. There will be foam created from the chickpeas, but that’s normal. Strain the pasta and rinse with hot water, then add back to the pot and cover until ready to serve.

Note: Of course you can use any pasta you want!  My Mom always made Stroganoff with Wide Egg Noodles.

Preheat a large skillet on high. Season the chicken strips with salt and pepper and add them to the skillet with a drizzle of olive oil.  Separate the strips into a single layer to sear on one side, about 4-5 minutes. Then flip the strips over to sear on the other side, another 5 minutes or until all of the chicken is cooked and there is no more pink.Cooked chicken strips in pan for Chicken Stroganoff with mushrooms, and spinach.

Can I make this entirely ahead and reheat?

For this recipe, you could make the entire dish in advance and reheat.  If you do this, I suggest keeping the pasta separate from the sauce through the reheating process as they will have different times and you don’t want to overcook the pasta.

Recipe Notes

  1. While I used Banza Gluten Free Pasta, you can certainly use any pasta or noodle you prefer!  My Mom always made Stroganoff with Wide Egg Noodles.
  2. I used both chicken broth and vegetable broth in this recipe.  Chicken for the flavor and vegetable broth because it has a darker color and helps to give this Chicken Stroganoff that familiar brown colored sauce.  You can certainly use 2 cups of Chicken Broth.
  3. For the spinach, I like it bright green and barely wilted for lots of texture.  However, if you want it cooked down more, then add it earlier when you add the chicken.
