Watch this recipe for signs of fresh ingredients you might have planned to use in other ways, but ran out of inspiration before doing so… as well as leftovers from assorted dinners: cooked hamburger, tofu, and refried beans - here is their destiny. Also note that time spent cutting and chopping all of these veggies is excellent for your health: put on some pleasant music and take the time to enjoy cutting and chopping every fresh veggie you can find in your frig before you begin to cook.

Heat Olive & Canola Oil in your largest skillet. Add Black Pepper & Ground Cumin. When hot, lightly stir-fry pre-chopped veggies: Onions, Carrots, Celery, Mushrooms, Zucchini, and Fresh Chives (or Green Onions) --- others if you have them on-hand. Put hot mixture in a slow cooker with the salsa (maybe you made too large of a batch and it isn't crisp enough to eat as-is or you have party leftovers?)

Add the proteins (and substitute if you have different ones on your leftover shelf): Ground beef, Tofu, firm, Refried beans… Add the liquids and simmer for a couple of hours: Vegetable Juice Cocktail (V8) and tap water.

I dare you to smell this cooking and not lust after it for any meal of the day! It makes about six 1.5 cup servings and thus will keep 2 dieters safe from falling off the wagon for about 3 days during a Diet Emergency! It also makes a great “freeze and save” for unexpected times when nothing in the house seems appetizing, but you want to eat properly. I recommend enjoying it along with a whole wheat tortilla warmed in a pan (no oil necessary) rolled up – plain or with a bit of cheese inside.
