Today I had the most scrumptious lunch! I took a piece of Naan bread and made it into a personal pizza. The bread was given to me by my mother when she cleaned out some of her freezer space. I then topped it with tomato sauce (canned from the garden last year), onion and purslane (both from the garden). A few shakes of garlic powder and Italian seasoning too. I then sprinkled shredded cheddar cheese (bought on sale…$.83) to top it off.
I baked it at 350 degrees until the bread was brown and the cheese was melted. A few short minutes under the broiler to make it oozy and ta-da!! A wonderful, inexpensive and almost-good-for-you lunch.
This is just another way you can squeeze some nutrition into your meals. Adding the purslane gives me some great vitamins and minerals, so I say it’s ok if there’s gooey cheese. Balance. 🙂 If you haven’t tried purslane yet, please do! For more information, see my post here about some common, edible garden weeds. If you can’t find purslane, grab some spinach.
I sure do hope you had something yummy and delicious today! If you didn’t, head out to the garden…or the yard…or the neighbor’s yard and see what you can find!
