Most of my favorite meals are really simple. Not a lot of ingredients and usually one pan or pot. I wonder if I love these meals because they are easy or if I just found a good combination of flavors and textures.
I like to cook ground turkey with a little olive oil, garlic powder, salt, and cumin. Sometimes I add carrots that have been chopped fine in a food processor, and then add a can of drained and rinsed black beans. Every now and then I will add a can of crushed tomatoes. You could also add some grated cheese.
I made this up one day when I went home on my lunch hour and wanted some hot food. I was able to cook it, eat it, and wash the dishes before I had to be back at work.
This is what comfort food is for me, and you could add a cornbread muffin (we use a packaged mix) and poke a blackberry on top before baking just to have a little fun with your food.
What is one of your favorite meals?
