Everyone has one of those nights when they don’t think they have enough energy to make dinner. Sometimes it’s true and sometimes it’s a part of us that is looking for a reason to order in. Last night was one of those nights in my house. That’s when I usually just pull up Grubhub.com and try to find something that’s mainly protein and veggies, not an easy feat.
Last night, though, I decided to cook anyway. I pulled some boneless pork chops out of the freezer along with a bag of Green Giant riced cauliflower “risotto” medley and whipped up a quick, healthy dinner.
First, I defrosted the pork chops in the microwave. Then I breaded them with panko and parmesan cheese. I tossed them in the oven on 350 for about 30 minutes. While that was in the oven I put a couple tablespoons of olive oil and some minced garlic in a skillet, then added the “risotto” medley. Little by little I added about a cup of vegetable broth. I added some broth and stirred until it was absorbed, then kept repeating that until I used the whole cup and added some parmesan cheese. Here are the results.
It was a healthy dinner that took less time to make that it would have taken to wait for a delivery.
