Quick dinner! Turkey Chili with Kasha & Kale

Last night was one of those nights when you finally get home after 8pm and dread the fact that you still have to make dinner!

I'm sure you've had one of those nights too, right? But instead of just getting something bad for myself I decided to treat myself to a nice easy & HEALTHY dinner!

Insert Turkey Chili with Kasha & Kale! I had some left over turkey chili from the weekend that I reheated and made Kasha and tossed it altogether with organic kale!!

This was my first time making Kasha and I will admit I really messed up the first round!! Once I got it right though, it was so easy and delish!! I will definitely be coming up with more recipes that include kasha! (Yes, kasha is on the Endo Therapy diet approved list!)

In one pan, i reheated my turkey chili (recipe to come!). I try to avoid using microwaves as much as possible. If you really want to know why, leave a comment and I will explain more!

In another pan, I made the kasha:

1. In a medium sauce pan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. 2. Add 1 cup Kasha, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper to boiling liquid and stir. 3. Cover; reduce heat to Low. Simmer 10 minutes or until most of the water is absorbed. 4. Fluff Kasha lightly with fork before serving. Makes 4 cups (great for more leftovers!!)

Then all I did was chop up some freshly washed organic kale and mixed it all together on a plate! I added a little hot sauce  to my plate for an added boost to my metabolism!

 This meal took only 15 minutes and was so satisfying! I made enough to take with me as my lunch for the next day!

To quote my boyfriends dad whom I love "Proper Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance" = leftovers and cooking extra is key!!
