Another dinner for one tonight. Cooking for myself is not as fun as cooking for two. There is no one there to share the flavor with. Seems silly, but now I understand why microwave dinner companies stay in business. Tonight I made of of my favorites, shrimp fajitas. The good thing about cooking for one is the leftovers for tomorrow.
Here is tonight’s simple recipe.
You will need:
- Three cups bell pepper (your choice of color)
- 1/2 cup onion slices
- One cup cottage cheese
- 12 Ounces uncooked shrimp
- 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 Tbsp organic fajita seasoning
- 1 Head of lettuce
-In a frying pan heated on high, saute onions and peppers with olive oil.
-Add cooked shrimp after the onions and peppers are sauteed.
-After shrimp is done cooking, remove from heat and stir in the fajita seasoning.
-Add 1/4 of the lettuce head to a serving bowl.
-Top with 1/4 cup of cottage cheese.
-Add one cup of the shrimp fajita mix to the bowl.
Recipe makes four serving.
I’d recommend pairing it up with a homemade salsa and organic tortilla chips!
