Just in case you didn't know, I am the queen of re-purposing! Another name for re-using left overs, lol. Earlier this week I prepared my delicious slow cooker pot of Slow Cooker Vegetarian White Bean & Kale Stew. Using Abstract Spice and an onion as the only means of seasoning (with just a few dashes of sea salt to taste), this delicious bowl of comfort was perfectly scrumptious amongst the rainy days we've had this week here in Atlanta.
Buuuuuut, the sun has come out for the weekend! Now my family is well aware that Mommie does not cook over the weekend. It's pretty much a go-for-yourself type of meal situation on Saturdays. So we decided on nachos. Not just any nachos, my purposeful 'Quick Repurposed Vegetarian White Bean Nachos', yummers! Have fresh spinach, red onion, tomatoes, and avocado, we will nachos make! For my boys, I seasoned up some fresh ground turkey, but for me, I reheated my white bean stew, and what a genius move that was!! My son even added it to his taco seasoned ground turkey and it blew his mind! With some additional toppings such as chopped black olives, cheese, and sour cream, nacho night was on and poppin', and packed full of protein!
*ACAOF Tip*: Never begrudge leftovers!
When the weekend comes, check the inventory in your fridge (you have to anyway to know what to pick up from the grocery store!), and you'd be surprised with what you can come up with when you add a little imagination! Salads, wraps, tacos, and of course, NACHOS!
...Quick Repurposed Vegetarian White Bean Nachos that is.
