Sunday is my favorite day for cooking for the week. I cook like this all the time. I am very busy as we all are these days. In my case, I am constantly on the phone or in conferences. Thus, I like making meals that I can pick off of throughthout the day, or carry with me, without being messy. Of course, they must be complete meals = Protein and veggie. As a prior vegetarian restaurant owner, I have learned to develop recipes where the same ingredients may be used to prepare another meal. It helsp to prepare your meals while you are aleady in the zone, in the kitchen, with everything already out and messy. I will make 2 or sometimes 3 different meals with the same ingredients
My first Recipe for today:
PALEO QUICHE CHORIZO MUFFINS
A quick, inexpensive complete meal, that can be carried with you in a plastic container to work . Great Sunday brunch, served with a green salald or as a fast after church mini meal
Chorizo ~ shown below
Chorizo can be a fresh sausage, in which case it must be cooked before eating. In Europe, it is more frequently a fermented, cured, smoked sausage, in which case it is often sliced and eaten without cooking, and can be added as an ingredient to add flavour to other dishes. Spanish chorizo and Portuguese chouriço get their distinctive smokiness and deep red color from dried smoked red peppers (pimentón/pimentão).
Due to culinary tradition and the high cost of imported Spanish smoked paprika, Mexican chorizo is usually made with native chili peppers of the same Capsicum annuumspecies, used abundantly in Mexican cuisine. In Latin America, vinegar also tends to be used instead of the white wine usually used in Spain
Use from the can
Make your own
