Day 11/15: Curried Protein

Hello Hello!

I am the worst at my own 15 day challenge…

What I can I do? I have a full-time job, and a second job at a martial arts gym where I train as well. On top of that I just started the Insanity work out. Insanity is a pretty good way to describe it.. and my life at the moment.. not in general but at this moment. I’ve been in a relationship with someone for 3 years.. and the learning curves of this is endless in which it also turns into a full-time job. But he makes me smile so that’s okay. Anyways.. sorry for the odd rant. Let’s move on..

My cousin text me that she made spaghetti and soy protein meatballs. Half of the sauce was made of beets. She dared me to try so I accepted.. except I forgot to buy beets 😦

SO… I went in another direction.

I was feeling some homemade Indian comfort food.. never quite like my mom’s so I gave it a try.

I thought of making curries meatballs on quinoa.. but I wasn’t able to accomplish all that this evening having spent some time jumping around like a crazy person to Shaun T’s Insanity. So intense.

Here’s what I used:

  • 1 package vegan protein
  • 2/3 cup peas
  • 1 tbsp tumeric
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 small tomato (sliced into wedges)
  • 1 pinch paprika
  • 1/2 cup vegetable stock
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup chopped onions
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Start by heating oil in a skillet and briefly frying the onions, garlic and ginger.

Add protein and vegetable stock. Cook for five minutes. Slowly add remaining ingredients (spices, last).

Cook for 10 minutes.

Serve on brown rice or quinoa.
