I am trying to find new and inventive ways to go meatless or meat less.
I am still working on getting Jason fully on board with this. But I have several reasons for trying to go meatless once a week.
There are several reasons I am attempting to do this.
1. It saves money.
2. It's healthy.
3. It's better for the environment.
My husband, however is a major carnivore. Major. So I have had to get a little sneaky.
A few weeks ago I made mushroom and spinach calzones. I waited until we were finished eating to point out they were meatless.
"Yeah," Jason said. "But they have mushrooms, so we're good."
Okay. This is what you'll need:
1 carton mushrooms washed and sliced
3 cups spinach
1 onion, diced
1/4 cup chicken stock
1 clove garlic, minced
pizza dough or refrigerated pizza crust
In a skillet caramelize your onions. You can read a full tutorial on how to do that here.
Once that process is complete deglaze your pan with a little chicken stock and add your spinach, garlic and mushroom. Cook until the spinach wilts. Remove your pan from the heat and preheat your oven.
Then, because I got EXTREMELY frustrated with the pizza crust, I had Jason fold it over the vegetables for me. When I saw I got extremely frustrated... I had to apologize to Jesus and my family for all the words that came out of my mouth. Yeah, it got ugly.
I brushed the dough with a little bit of egg before popping them in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes.
They were so delicious.
What meatless dishes have you tried at your house?
