I know many of us stockpiled a number of foods that don’t go bad for a while – but now don’t know what to do with them! I personally love incorporating canned food into my recipes just because its so easy. You can always have basic canned ingredients like tomatoes, beans, corn, etc. in your pantry to use at any time. So whether you’re living off canned foods or just want a few new meals to try out with your stockpile, today is all about canned tomatoes.
Here are 6 EASY meals with canned tomatoes to try:
Basic B Chili with Spicy Cauli Rice
4 oz ground beef, 90%, lean, raw
1 cup canned, diced tomatoes
1 cup carrots
1/4 onion, yellow
1/4 cup celery stalks, chopped in half
1 cup veggie noodles/rice, cauliflower “rice”, raw
2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated
Dashes: chili, garlic salt, red pepper flakes, cumin
This recipe works best when making 2-3 servings.
Spray a pan with an oil spray. Stir fry beef until no longer pink.
While beef is cooking, spray a pot with an oil spray. Cook carrot (chopped), onion (diced), and celery (diced) for ~6-7 minutes.
Add in tomatoes and beef. Add in cumin, chili powder, garlic salt, red pepper flakes. Cook on low heat for at least 10 minutes.
Clean the ground beef pan and spray it again with an oil spray. Stir-fry cauliflower rice for 7-8 minutes, or until you see some browning.
Add in Parmesan cheese, cumin, and chili powder.
Top cauli rice with chili and serve.
If you want to add a little cilantro and/or sliced jalapeno please do!
No beef? Use ground turkey or tofu instead. No cheese? Use a dairy-free version.
