Whoever said quick meals can’t be delicious?
Like I’ve mentioned before, Monday’s are my longest days of the week. By the time I get home I’m usually hungry, tired, and feeling lazy. The last thing I want to do is spend a lot of time cooking.
Monday nights are a great time for leftovers, but they don’t need to be. Sometimes everyone wants a new and exciting dinner
Enter tonight’s dinner which took less than 10 minutes to prepare.
While cooking some cheeze-y kale, I assembled a falafel pita.
I heated half of a whole wheat pita in the toaster oven and once it was warm (not toasty!) I spread the inside with Trader Joe’s tahini. Then I stuffed some arugula and bread and butter pickles inside, along with a thawed and heated frozen falafel (TJ’s brand).
The taste of the falafel was actually restaurant-quality, but I was a little shocked by their high calorie content. I ended up just using one and slicing it in half. Luckily, it was flavorful enough that I didn’t need more!
Simple, tasty, and fast. What more could you want?
Plus, a quick dinner leaves you with more time to make dessert .
I’ll see you tomorrow!
