Your Guide to a Balanced Brown-Bag Lunch
Packing a lunch for yourself or your kids can prove a challenge at times, especially on hectic Monday mornings. Trying to find healthy ingredients that your kids will enjoy is probably the hardest part. When I used to pack my lunch in high school, I was extremely health-conscious. I measured out the peanut butter and jelly when I made a PB&J and counted the number of chips I put into a ziplock bag. I also made sure I had a full serving of fruits and vegetables with lunch every day. While you don’t need to be as extreme as I was, I hope you can use this article as your guide to a balanced brown-bag lunch.
Monday to Friday Balanced Brown-Bag Lunch Guide
Sandwiches
Monday: Nut butter and jelly sandwich – use peanut, almond, cashew, or even sun butter!
Tuesday: Deli Sandwich with cheese – turkey, chicken, or ham – add tomato, lettuce, and avocado for more nutrients and flavor
Wednesday: Hummus and boiled egg pita –  smear some hummus on the inside of a pita and slice up a boiled egg. This is not only tasty but is a good source of protein and fiber as well!
Thursday: Nut butter and banana sandwich
Friday: Chicken salad sandwich
* You can use wraps or even lettuce as a substitute for bread
Chips
Creating a balanced brown-bag lunch is all about choosing healthier options. Use baked chips such as baked lays and sun chips as a lower-fat substitute for regular lays chips. According to the Food Network, one ounce (15 chips) of baked potato chips has 14% fewer calories and 50% less fat than regular potato chips.
Fruits and veggies – the key to a balanced lunch
Fruits and vegetables are key to packing a balanced brown-bag lunch. With every lunch, try to include a few servings of both fruit and veggies. The great part is, is that there are so many options to choose from you can mix it up every day.
This infographic from Very Well Family outlines the recommended fruit and veggie servings for your kids:

Need some extra vitamins?
If you struggle to consume all of the vitamins you need each day, try BOOSTit by itSpray. BOOSTit is your solution to increased immunity. Other than Vitamin C, it provides Vitamins A, D, and B-12, which the body does not produce on its own. We recently added elderberry and replaced sucralose with an all-natural sweetener known as monk-fruit. You can read more about our updated formula in our press release by clicking here!

Wonderful Additions To Any Cooking Dish
For the most part, "tobacco onions" or "hand-picked tobacco onions" are just that-onion-picked. This sort of onion is harvested from the same garden as the tobacco plant, which grows wild throughout vast expanses of Mexico and Central America. Since the plant alone is so plentiful, it is easier and less costly to grow than some other varieties of onions. While you may possibly find it strange to consider that a union could have something to do with tobacco, it is real. And this small onion does more than incorporate flavor and odor excellent: it can in fact provide a objective.
A tobacco onion can be utilised as a flavoring agent for hundreds of various recipes, from pickles to pasta sauce. By drying tobacco products age and then rubbing or sprinkling the leaves into a recipe, it not only offers a new aroma but also makes the foodstuff taste greater. Numerous people who use tobacco onions in pickling recipes dry the leaves first, squeeze them dry, and then include them to the recipe. Many makers and cooks really like the onion's capability to incorporate vibrant taste without having clogging the taste of the juice in the bottle. It can even be employed to time other meals, like tomatoes and red peppers, to add an further bit of zing to the flavor.
Most tobacco onions are about an inch prolonged and purple in coloration, but they can be discovered in other colors, these kinds of as green, yellow, white, or even brown. The stems are usually only 3 to five millimeters prolonged, even though they can develop up to 10 inches. Several makers dry them ahead of they are employed in recipes, but there are also those who use the leaves immediately in their recipes.
If you want to know how to make the tobacco onion adhere perfectly to a recipe, you require to know what its basic objective is. Because it has this sort of a powerful taste, the leaves are typically utilized to keep meals fresher lengthier, especially breads and meats. It is a excellent addition to pickles and sauces because of the way it breaks down over time. It can be used to time soups, stews, and chili, although the taste will continue being the same as it was originally.
There are a lot of great utilizes for this vegetable that will not have anything to do with cigarette smoking. Just introducing a number of leaves to soups, salads, and dishes turns them into tasty deal with, with out the need to smoke them. They can be used whole, chopped up for snacks, or chopped up and blended with sauces to make a fantastic accompaniment to any food. The tobacco onion is functional and can be utilized for a large amount of cooking responsibilities.
For more strong flavored onion dishes, the leaves can be combined with flavors like butter and Worcestershire sauce. This mixture is then used to make fantastic tasting sandwiches. A great dessert to leading off spicy food items, like puddings, is to puree the onion in cheese sauce with brandy vinegar. Both these additions make tasty treats that are sure to remember to with tobacco onions.

The Well-Stocked Pantry
Tumblr media
If you struggle to eat well, you are more than likely among the nutrient-deficient majority - and you aren't getting what it takes to live fit, fueled, and satisfied. Here's the bottom line: We will only eat well and cook well if we fill our pantries with the right foods. Keeping your kitchen stocked with simple, inexpensive ingredients will make weeknight cooking much easier (and more fun!), and makes the difference between quickly and efficiently putting together healthy flavorful foods vs. a meal-time-blues headache or a fast-food nightmare. These are my go-tos for adding a healthy advantage to my shopping cart - and keeping my kitchen pantry, fridge, and freezer ready to prepare a delicious and nutritious meal.
Spice Cabinet Musts
P.S. Flavor!™ Spice Blends, pure vanilla extract or paste, cinnamon or cinnamon sticks, coarse ground black pepper, black peppercorns, Diamond Crystal Kosher salt, and Sugar in the Raw.
Vinegars
Red wine, white balsamic, rice wine, and apple cider vinegars will cover you for salad dressings and balancing dishes. Reduced balsamic is great for a drizzle and flavor pop.
Hot Sauce
Keep a few on hand and add a dash (or two!) into soups, salsas, sauces, sandwiches, and eggs. I especially love Cholula and Sriracha.
Oils
I use extra virgin olive oil for most all my cooking, a more exquisite one for vinaigrettes and drizzling, and a little less expensive one for cooking. Grapeseed and canola oils are good for baking, and nonstick spray makes life so much easier.
Honey and Real Maple Syrup
Add a quick drizzle when you're craving a little sweetness in things like your oatmeal, vinaigrettes, or sauces.
Dijon Mustard
For so much more than sandwiches, it adds a special flavor punch to marinades, rubs, crustings - and is the time-tested emulsifier for salad dressings.
Dried Fruits
Craisins, dried blueberries, and tart cherries bring a touch of sweetness and nutrition to salads, chutneys, and sautés or roasts.
Nuts and Seeds
Toasted pumpkin seeds, almonds, pecans, pistachios, and pinenuts add satisfying crunch and healthy fats to salads, grain dishes, and crumb toppings.
Canned Beans
Keep a few different kinds of canned beans in your pantry. I keep black beans, chick peas, cannellini, red kidney beans, and black eyed peas. Drain and rinse to bulk up soups, salads, or mix with rice and grains.
Brown Rice and Whole Grains
Some grocery stores now stock them ready to heat, but it's easy to do yourself. Cook a large pot, cool completely, and freeze in re-sealable bags. Thaw as needed.
Lower Sodium Chicken, Beef, or Vegetable Stock 
Easy to make on your own, and great to have handy for cooking vegetables and soups.
Pre-cut Vegetables
Look to see if your grocery store has these available in the produce section. They're wonderful to have on hand to steam, stir fry, or microwave. You can also buy veggies whole and portion them into your own personal blends.
Root Vegetables
Red onions, garlic, shallots, and ginger.
Citrus
Think of citrus as a two- for-one. The zest can be used in marinades and the juice can be drizzled over cooked vegetables and used in vinaigrettes. Use a lemon or lime squeezer for easy juicing!
Eggs
Whip up a quick omelet, poach eggs in tomato sauce, fry one for a sandwich or grain bowl topper, or hard-boil a few for quick snacks.
Nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt
Perfect on its own as a snack with fresh berries or the base for a smoothie, overnight oats, or healthy, creamy dressing.
Dairy
Milk (of your choice), light sour cream, and unsalted butter.
High Quality Cheeses
Invest in a microplane cheese grater and add Parmesan into salads, soups, and more. Remember a little goes a long way. We also love to throw pieces of the cheese rind into simmering soups for an umami boost. I keep feta, sharp cheddar, and ricotta on hand as well.
Miscellaneous
Panko, olive oil mayo, low sodium soy sauce or tamari, whole wheat flour, Worcestershire sauce, salsa, and canned Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce.
... and don’t forget your Freezer! 
A powerful resource for keeping fresh food on hand is your freezer! I keep mine well-stocked with whole grain breads, salmon and shrimp, soups, and a variety of meals that I’ve made and saved leftovers from.

Red Banquet Menu if it Wasn’t in Minecraft
[ I really like making long ass list posts and I’ve formatted this as like a 10 course banquet menu but I don’t wanna flood people’s dashes so if you wanna read the rest of the menu and hear my culinary infodumping, click under the cut after the non-alcohol option!]
Alcohol:
Tumblr media
Sangria, it’s a nice blood red beverage that’s fruity and refreshing. Would’ve been mulled wine but this is such a “spring” drink for all the adults who want some.
Non-Alcoholic Beverage:
Tumblr media
Some really nice Kool Aid jungle juice, maybe pour some Monster Zero in there or something so that it bubbles like the alcohol, let the kids have some fun. Put some cherries in for colour maybe.
Hors d'oeuvre:
Tumblr media
Caprese skewers, consisting of a cherry tomato, a leaf of basil, and a ball of fresh mozzarella cheese rolled in a mixture of Italian herbs and olive oil. Very simple and clean to eat while engaging in conversation with your tablemates or hearing the head of the table give some kind of speech.
Appetizer:
Tumblr media
Chips and salsa just seemed really classic to me, not the fanciest thing but it’d probably be much easier to serve and a lot of restaurants do it because it “Excites the palate”, it’s something to munch on. Maybe use spicy doritos or red corn chips if you want to keep the color motif going.
Salad:
Tumblr media
An Asian-inspired red slaw using red cabbage, beetroot (hey look a minecraft ingredient), purple arugula or “rocket”, and radishes. I’ve made it before it tastes pretty decent on its own and they could use French dressing or a raspberry balsamic so it could stay red.
Soup:
Tumblr media
Tomato soup with roasted red peppers, cream, and basil. Really simple and not too intense on the palate before the main course. Plus it has a lot of smoky flavour from the fire-roasted peppers… (Sorry I’m a huge fucking culinary nerd).
Main Course:
Tumblr media
I couldn’t find a picture of the real deal that looked nice, but spicy chicken strips with varying hot sauces on them because Bad has his affinity for spicy chicken as a form of torture. No real culinary aspect, this is purely to stay on brand. Moving on!
Palate Cleanser:
Tumblr media
Refreshing and soft raspberry sorbet with a little bit of mint to get the palate cleansed before the second main course (yes there are two, fancy people are weird). Could also be served with some sparkling water or an aperitif for the adults who want something to sip on (preferably a Lillet Rouge to keep things red).
Main Course #2:
Tumblr media
Lobster (Whole lobster not just the tails, but didn’t wanna scare anybody cause I know some lobster can look like bugs). Everyone gets a whole lobster and tools to break it open, boiled to perfection and served with butter, garlic butter, lemon, sweet chili sauce, and a small basket of fries.
I figure since a lot of people have unique opinions on meat, picking something with a baseline for flavour that’s really ornate might be a good solution, that and I thought it’d look cool.
Dessert:
Tumblr media
Cherry pie! Really well baked with a thick brown-sugary crust and an intense gooey, gets-all-over-your-face filling that would ruin your outfit if you dribbled. Everyone’s on edge, everyone’s stressed, and suddenly they’re presented with a massive sticky piece of pie the size of their face. Good way to clear the air and such a rich comforting desert.  
Mignardise:
Tumblr media
Some cute little red velvet cake petit fours. The mignardise is a little treat to have with coffee at the end of a meal and these little white chocolate covered bites are perfect, like truffles. They also may or may not be foreshadowing for an unexpected dinner guest to come crawling out of the Egg.
Aand that’s it! I just wanted to make a fake menu for a roleplay dinner party that is probably gonna be serving cooked chicken and water bottles because Minecraft. Hope you guys enjoyed!

My brother and his fiancée wanted to do an all-vegetarian month of dinners this spring but didn’t know where to start so I wrote up a huge list of ideas (I’m not vegetarian but I try to eat that way at least twice a week) and I thought someone else might appreciate the list as well, so here you go:
Vegetarian ideas list
Cheese theme
Pizza with mozzarella, shingled with thinly sliced raw yellow potatoes and raw beets dressed with oil, salt and pepper. Sprinkle the top with Parmesan before baking.
Pizza with cheddar and thinly sliced broccoli, dressed with oil, salt, and pepper
Pizza with Mozzarella, asparagus peeled into ribbons with a vegetable peeler and dressed with salt/pepper/oil, baked and then topped with small spoonsful of ricotta
Roasted feta and cherry tomato pasta
Arugula/roasted beet/orange salad with walnuts or sliced almonds and crumbled goat cheese. If you want to be super fancy you can partially freeze the goat cheese log and slice it, then dip the slices in egg and then Panko crumbs and fry on each side in butter. Makes for a very impressive presentation. Beets can be roasted in bulk, peeled, and then store in the fridge for a week so if you have time the day before, do that. If extra beets, see chłodnik below.
Literally a quesadilla. This happens to me 1-2 times per month. Serve with Valentina brand hot sauce and sour cream.
Tofu theme
Roasted tofu: press firm tofu between paper towels under a heavy pan for 10 minutes, then cut into bite-size cubes. Meanwhile, make a dressing of equal parts neutral oil and soy sauce, with a dash of sesame oil. Toss cubes in dressing, then spread on a foil-lined baking tray and roast in 375F oven for 18-20 mins, tossing once or twice with a thin metal spatula so they get brown and crisp. Serve with a sesame cucumber salad or lemon garlic sautéed broccoli/bok Choi and rice
Tofu saag: use the above preparation for tofu but make the dressing from 1 tbls miso and 1 lemon of juice, along with 2 tbls neutral oil. Then make saag following this recipe and stir tofu in at the end. I will often make a half recipe of the saag with 1 lb of tofu and that seems to be enough for two people with leftovers. I also usually add some turmeric and garam masala to the aromatics before adding the spinach. I also usually use frozen spinach, added straight out of the freezer with 1/4 cup water or broth to thaw it. For a full recipe of saag, try one 10 oz bag frozen spinach and one bunch of stemmed shredded mustard greens. Gives a better texture and a nice funky flavor. Serve with basmati rice.
Ma Po Tofu: special occasion food. Leave out the pork crumbles (and the fish sauce if you’re feeling very hard core vegetarian!!!!!) here’s a vegan recipe but it calls for a lot of specialized ingredients. There are lots of simpler recipes online if you can source the broad bean sauce and the Sichuan pepper from the internet.
Crispy sesame tofu with spinach. Save the rest of the coconut milk after you use 1/4 cup for the dressing and either freeze it for future use or combine with 1.5 cups rice and 1 cup water in a rice cooker to make coconut rice. You can either make spinach as called for in the recipe or if you don’t like spinach you can cook shiitake mushrooms and kale in the same flavors for a more high-fiber option.
Mushroom theme
Mushroom shepherd’s pie—I usually leave out the porcinis because $$$ and often just use baby Bella and white mushrooms in the pie. It’s still really good. Makes incredible leftovers.
Oyster mushroom “scallops”—buy king oyster mushrooms (or just use baby bellas) and cut them into scallop-size rounds. Sauté in a pan with oil and no salt until lightly browned (this takes a while but is worth it). Then add soy sauce, sesame oil, minced ginger and garlic, and black pepper, enough to make a pool around the mushrooms. Use a spoon to gently baste the mushrooms with this mixture while they finish cooking. Top with minced scallions or chives, and serve on brown or white rice, or with quinoa. I also usually cook sesame spinach (oil, salt, frozen spinach, dash of sesame oil and sprinkle of sesame seeds) with this.
Chickpea, mushroom and squash curry— literally this recipe but with a can of chickpeas stirred in at the end. I also often use delicata squash instead of butternut or kabocha if it’s available. If you can only get butternut, use mom’s trick rather than risking your fingers—slap the whole squash in a 375 degree oven for 30 mins to soften it, then take it out, let it cool a little, and cut it into manageable cubes from there. It freezes well in cubes or mashed. If you have too much to eat at one time (you will have too much), see butternut squash soup below.
Other
Pindi chhole—spicy dry-fried chickpeas. There are so many spices in this that you can easily skip one or two. Kala namak is a kind of sulfurous salt I have never seen in the US. I just use kosher instead. Quick Hindi cheat sheet: jeera=cumin, haldi=turmeric, amchur is a dried sour mango—you can substitute with lime juice if you can’t find it. I usually serve this with rice and a simple cucumber/lemon juice/salt/pepper/cumin/yogurt raita.
Basic dal: I make this all the time. I often chop a bunch of kale and stir it in during the last 5 mins of cooking. While rice is great with all Indian food, remember lots of places (eg Whole Foods) sell pre-made naan and frozen roti if you want Indian breads. Also look for jarred chutneys online or at your store. Salted preserved lemons are my favorites and they are simple to make if you want that jolt of sunshine and can’t get them commercially.
Breakfast burritos: eggs, beans (refried or whole), leftover roasted potatoes, whatever cooked veggies you have lying around (I like peppers and onions), vegan sausage if you like (I love the Costco brand veggie sausage), hot sauce. These freeze incredibly well so you can have them for days after.
For warm days: chłodnik (cold roasted beet and yogurt and cucumber soup, seasoned with dill, lemon juice, and pepper) and served with a hard boiled egg floating in it and a slice of buttered bread.
Roasted vegetables: zucchini, tomatoes, mushrooms, eggplant, peppers, onions, garlic. Roasted in a 400F oven (roast in separate piles so you can remove the fast cookers first). Then serve over homemade croutons for panzanella or with slices of toast for a nice open faced sandwich. For a Provençal flavor, stir in halved nicoise or other dark olives or capers before eating.
Goat cheese & chive crepes. Or olive & cheese. Or creamed mushroom crepes. Recipe & more ideas here.
Egg & toast & roasted vegetable or salad. Hey, it’s food.
Black lentils and spinach: I used French green lentils instead of black lentils because they’re easier to find and it was absolutely delicious. Also I used red wine vinegar instead of “white balsamic” which is kind of not really a thing. I served this with roasted spiced carrots. I used just the roasted carrots with avocado and left off the dressing and sprouts.
Butternut squash soup: Thinly slice an onion and cook on medium heat in butter with a pinch of salt until translucent and starting to lightly brown. Add 1-2 cloves minced garlic and allow to soften. Add 1-2 cups butternut squash purée and stir until squash paste smells slightly sweet and is warmed all the way through (do not allow it to brown too much, it weirds the texture). Add 2-3 cups stock and purée. Allow to warm then season to taste with lemon juice, salt and pepper. Serve with bread of some kind.
Red pepper soup: Very simple, very wholesome. Also good cold. Serve with garlic butter toast.

Morrisons unveils new food box which feeds a family of four for £30 - and it includes recipes | Daily Mail Online
Tumblr media
Morrisons has unveiled its new food box and recipe kit designed to feed a family of four for £30.
The boxes, which cost £28.50 (a five per cent discount) if you sign up for a subscription, contain a mixture of cupboard staples and fresh produce to make five meals - coming in at £1.50 per portion.
Available across the UK with free delivery, they come with full retail-sized packs of ingredients, unlike rival trendy meal kit makers such as HelloFresh. 
Its easy to follow recipe cards include family favourites such as spaghetti and meatballs, chilli con carne and a Veggie Curry.
Morrisons has unveiled its new food box and recipe kit designed to feed a family of four for under £30
There are also a couple of hearty winter meals such as a cheesy leek and mushroom pie and a warming sausage and butterbean bake.
The supermarket says the tasty dishes take the 'planning and hassle' out of preparing family meals from scratch during the week, helping make mealtimes a more social, relaxed experience.
The offering is less than half the price of market leaders Hello Fresh, whose meals start at £3.25 per person; Gousto, costing from £2.98 per serving; and Mindful chef, priced at £6 per portion. 
And the fact the Morrisons boxes come with full retail-sized packs of ingredients means customers are likely to have ingredients left over at the end of the week - which they can use to cook additional meals.
Morrisons' Family of Four Everyday box ingredients

Morrisons The Best Thick Pork Sausages 400g x 2  
Pilgrims Choice Mature Cheddar 350g

Tessa Callaghan, Head of Food Boxes at Morrisons, previously told FEMAIL: 'Many of our customers enjoy eating meals as a family and we have seen customers do this more during the pandemic.
'It can be difficult to constantly cook up new dishes that please everyone. 
'So, we wanted to create a great value box that contained high-quality produce and recipe cards - to make it easier to try new things.'
Its easy to follow recipe cards include family favourites such as spaghetti and meatballs, chilli con carne (pictured) and a Veggie Curry
Morrisons also has a range of additional 'everyday' boxes, including a sports nutrition box (£21), a cupboard essentials box (£20), a Veganuary option (£25), meat and vegetarian essentials boxes (both £35), a selection of fruit (£16), alcohol boxes and an 'ultimate cleaning bundle' priced at £35.
Earlier in the pandemic, Morrisons became the first supermarket to offer food past its 'best before' date for a hugely marked down price through app Too Good To Go - in a bid to prevent unsold food going to waste. 
Customers who used the app were given boxes of food filled with unsold fruit and veg, bakery and deli items worth at least £10 for just £3.09. 
Morrisons' Chilli Con Carne recipe
Tinned tomatoes - 400g
Cheddar for grating - 120g
1. Dissolve the stock in 300 mls of boiled water.
2. Peel and finely slice the onion, crush the garlic clove and slice the red pepper into small chunks.
3. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and gently fry until the onion is soft.
4. Add the beef and gently fry until the meat starts to brown then add the chilli powder. Stir the spices into the meat so it’s well coated then add the red pepper. Stir and allow to cook for a few minutes.
5. Stir in the tinned tomatoes and the stock and simmer for 25 - 30 minutes. Stirring occasionally.
6. Cook the rice according to the package directions.
7. Drain and rinse the kidney beans and stir them into the chilli for the last 5 minutes of cooking.
8. When the chilli and rice is ready serve together with grated cheese and coriander leaves. If you have any plain yoghurt in the fridge feel free to dollop a little over the top of the chilli.

7-ingredient warm farro salad (not including oil, s&p)! Charring the zucchini takes a very simple salad recipe and adds just a hint of smokiness. So easy to make and so versatile depending on what you have on hand. 320 calories, 11g fiber per serving!
PIC: https://i.imgur.com/ONIH5SY.jpg
Recipe notes:
I used neutral oil to cook the onions but you can use olive oil. The butter is optional and you can use dairy butter, but I wanted to keep the recipe vegan.
Veggie Substitutions:
You can use any combination of veggies (or fruit, too!) in this recipe. Try it with:
Roasted grapes
Eggplant - charred, like the zucchini
Thinly sliced sweet potato rounds – takes longer to cook unless sliced or cubed small
Tomatoes
Bell peppers
Fennel
Broccolini, chopped
Asparagus
Mushrooms
The list goes on!
Basil can be replaced with parsley
Watercress - can use spinach, kale, arugula, escarole, or your favorite green that is amenable to wilting
Recipe:
This warm farro salad with basil is an aromatic and easy dinner recipe, and who doesn't love a filling warm grain salad recipe?
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes
Servings: 4
Calories: 319kcal
Equipment
Wide skillet
Medium pot
Ingredients
1 cup pearled farro
3 cups water
2 teaspoons neutral oil
1 tablespoon plant-based butter, optional
1 yellow onion peeled and diced
1 red Fresno chili pepper trimmed and sliced into rounds
2 medium zucchini trimmed and sliced into half-moons
2 teaspoons olive oil
4 ounces basil leaves cut in a chiffonade; a few leaves reserved for garnish
6 ounces green olives rinsed if desired
5 ounces watercress
Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
Cook the Farro:
Bring 3 cups of salted water to a boil in a medium pot. Add the farro, reduce heat, and simmer for 25-30 minutes until tender. Drain and rinse.
Lightly Brown the Onions:
Heat the oil in a wide skillet over medium heat. Add the butter, and once frothy, add the onions. Cook the onions, often stirring, 8-12 minutes until the onions begin to turn golden brown. Adjust heat as necessary to prevent the onions from burning. They need not be fully caramelized. Season lightly with salt.
Broil the Zucchini:
Turn on the broiler. Arrange the zucchini and sliced red Fresno pepper on top of the onions in an even layer. It’s okay if there is some overlap! Drizzle with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Transfer the skillet to the broiler and cook, regularly checking, for 3-5 minutes until char marks develop on the zucchini. It may take longer depending on your broiler, but check the zucchini often!
Finish the Vegetables:
Transfer the skillet back to the stovetop and turn the heat to medium-high. Allow the zucchini to cook without moving, for an additional 5-6 minutes or until excess water is cooked off and the bottom of the zucchini begins to brown. Don’t overcook the zucchini! It should still be bright green in places.
Add the sliced basil to the skillet along with the olives and watercress and toss to combine. Taste and season with salt and pepper and cook for 1-2 minutes until the watercress wilts.
Finish the Farro Salad:
Add the cooked farro to the skillet and toss to combine. Taste and season again to your preferences. Turn off the heat and serve warm. Garnish with a few additional basil leaves, if you like.

Hey there! I’m from Texas and want to get in on the salad/rice debate🍚 Standard salads aren’t really a thing here unless you go to a steakhouse or something. Potato salad and Taco salads are a very very common though. Taco salad is a crispy tortilla bowl filled with salad greens, tomatoes, cheese, guacamole, and a choice of fajita steak or chicken.
Potato salad comes in three varieties here. Mayonnaise based, mustard based, and German potato salad from out in the hill country. Mayonnaise potato salad has skinned potato’s, mayonnaise, celery, dill relish, onion, and a little mustard.
Mustard potato salad has skinned potato’s, mustard, celery, dill relish, onion, and a little mayonnaise.
German potato salad is typically potato’s tossed in vinegar, bacon, onion, sugar, salt and pepper. Mayonnaise and mustard potato salad is always served cold while German potato salad is served warm.
Rice on the other hand is one of the biggest staple foods. Traditionally It’s cooked down with broth, diced tomatoes, and lots seasonings then served with beans. Cajun dishes like jambalaya, gumbo, and dirty rice are a big thing too. Aside from that it’s also often served plain with something like crawfish étouffée or brown gravy on top. Plain rice with butter and salt is also common.
Hey~
OML this is so diverse. I bet you never get bored.
The rice dishes mentioned at the end, i have never heard of them? Gotta google them later. They sound very interesting.
The taco salad sounds great!
Thank you for taking your time to write all these!
