If we’re being honest with each other here (which I hope by now we can be), then you know as much as I love cooking that even I don’t get a wholesome dinner on the table every single night. Some nights I just don’t feel like cooking. Other nights we just get home too late. And of course there’s the nights where the meat doesn’t thaw by the time I need to start cooking, I forgot to plug in the crockpot, or we aren’t hungry for a full meal. It’s happened to the best of us, multiple times.
My quest for wholesome meals that are quick and easy to make.
I’ve recently started working on a list of meals that I can get on the table rather quickly, even if we need to eat dinner in 30-40 minutes. When I thought of this meal, I wasn’t sure if the family would go for it…specifically, Andrew. He’s so picky that sometimes it’s hard. The verdict: it’s a win!
This specific dish is amazing for those nights that maybe you had a late lunch and everyone just wants a little something or even perfect for a lunch. Additionally, with the holiday season approaching, it would make an amazing appetizer or even a dish for brunch.
This chicken and goat cheese tart comes with fresh basil, garlic, arugula, tomatoes, and balsamic ANDD it’s amazing!
Part of the reason it’s so good is the fresh arugula and basil from Bowery. Imagine that you could have local, farm fresh produce in the middle of winter in New York City. With Bowery, you can. Bowery is a modern farming company that grows all products inside in a controlled environment using 95% less water and zero pesticides. It’s located just 8 miles outside of NYC. They are 100x more productive than traditional agriculture on the same amount of land because they grow vertically indoors. Currently Bowery produce is available at select Whole Foods and Foragers in the NY Tristate area.
I’m obsessed with #EatCleanGreens because zero pesticides means my family is healthier.
