Okay, I’ll admit it now. I’m going to cheat a little bit tonight. I didn’t actually cook the food I’m about to show you – it was created earlier in the week, and was kind of a “test recipe” (it’s nice to have some dishes I know I can make for company), so I didn’t feature it. My uncle was in town tonight and took us out to my favorite Mexican restaurant, El Tiempo Cantino. I don’t have pictures from dinner (and really, the fajitas, chips and rice were probably not the healthiest option), so I’m going back in time to share a “healthy” recipe with you.
I’ve mentioned before that I wouldn’t touch anything green until college. I’m still searching for ways to mask the flavor of my least favorite foods because they’re healthy and I really do want to eat them, but it’s a struggle. Hungry Girl rarely lets me down, so I thought I would try her rockin’ lean bean casserole.
Pat, as usual, was giving the dish a cautious eye, unsure if he even wanted to try it. He loves the real thing, which I made once before, but didn’t eat a bite of. Good thing he tried it! Because I didn’t like it. I couldn’t find onion-flavored soy chips, so I substituted with ranch flavored chips instead. And I still couldn’t eat it. Well, I take that back – I ate everything in the dish except for the green beans 🙂 I guess I’ll have to keep searching for a green bean dish I might actually eat.
