Improvised lunch (quick and easy)

Today I arrived at lunch time without knowing what I wanted and without wanting to make great dishes. In these situations the important thing is to simplify and think: “What would I like to eat right now?” Without thinking about how the dish will eventually look. Let’s see how this lunch went?

Today, for example, I wanted sauteed vegetables, especially leek. But what about the rest? The rest is invented, I took the basmati rice (which was cooked yesterday), I added cabbage and mushrooms to the leek, and opened a can of corn. And suddenly, I had a composed plate , with color and looking good!

Don’t forget to give that special touch: sesame seeds! You can use these or others, but the seeds tend to be forgotten and they are so important!

You will need: 

  • basmati rice or other accompanying you want to do/use (from another meal);
  • leek;
  • cabbage (I used 3 big leaves);
  • fresh mushrooms;
  • olive oil;
  • corn;
  • salt;
  • pepper;
  • seeds.

Let’s start!

Wash well the garlic, cabbage, and mushrooms. Cut the garlic and the mushrooms in slices and slice the cabbage leaves. Put a little of olive oil in the pan, before putting the leek and the cabbage to sauté. Cook for a few minutes (until vegetables diminish volume) and add the mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper. Go stirring so all the vegetables are well sautéed.

Now, just put on the plate and it’s ready. Add your favorite seeds.
