Skinny Snack: Lentil Endives

lentils

This is one of my go-to snacks when I’m in a hurry and don’t know what to eat that’s both healthy and filling. It’s really quick, looks pretty, and is (you called it) HEALTHY! Yay!

All you need is a pack of endives, lentils, and some bruschetta mix. Combine the lentils and bruschetta on a 1:1 ratio. Mix thoroughly and scoop onto an endive. If you’re getting fancy, try adding some crumbled feta or a touch of cilantro!

Since, burrito bowls are my favorite item to order at Chipotle, I decided to give it a go and make my own version of the delicious meal. I do have to say that I was not well-prepared, but with that being said, it all tasted pretty great! But in the blogging world, it is really all about the photos…right? Hehe.

I started by cooking the brown rice, since it would take a bit longer than any of the other ingredients. While it was cooking, I chopped up my veggies and seasoned my fish with all sort of yummy seasonings. Feel free to use whatever seasonings you like, but I went with what I had in my cupboard and sounded good. As soon as the pan heated up, I placed down my pieces of fish to start cookin! WOOHOO!

While the fish was cooking, I made sure to put the black beans and corn on the stove, since those took the least amount of time to prepare. As soon as my fish was done cooking, I added in my veggies (alongside of the cooked fish), which allowed the veggies to simmer in the same seasoning base as my fish! Soon thereafter, the layering began – brown rice, black beans, corn, veggies, black olives, and fish! I topped off the dish with some green salsa, cilantro and lime, which gave the dish the perfect KICK! Yay to a successful recipe and meal! Your move Chipotle! (JK. Their bowl is obvi 10x’s better…that cilantro lime rice though)

enjoy :)
