Fridays are always busy around here, so I opted for a very easy lunch of pasta, spaghetti sauce from a jar, green salad, and boiled broccoli. I love these noodles from Costco. One bag is just enough for our family of 5.
I made another green salad, this time adding cold peas, avocados, carrots and tomatoes. This is my salad before it was tossed! I also had some croutons that I was able to serve with the salad today. I love the crunch of a crouton!!
I did add some TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein) to the spaghetti sauce. It is a vegetarian, meaty type of food that can be boiled, and then gently fried, something like hamburger. I added 3 cloves of garlic chopped, 1/4 cup dried onions, sauteed them together, and then added those to the veggie meat, before adding it all into the spaghetti sauce, giving it a heartier taste.
The broccoli is boiled for 1 minute, and served with simple mayo. It was a quick and easy meal, perfect for a Friday lunch!
