One of my favorite quick and easy lunches: Chickpea, cherry tomato, and feta salad
This recipe is for one serving.
1) Rinse and drain 1/4 cup canned chickpeas
2) In a bowl, combine the chickpeas with 1/2 cup quartered cherry tomatoes, 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese, 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice, 2 teaspoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and a pinch of pepper.
Banana Bread (the kids like this one better than the "healthy" banana bread)
1/3 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 medium) mashed ripe banana
(1/2 cup chopped nuts)
Cream together sugar and shortening. Add eggs and mix. Combine dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients and mashed banana to egg mixture and stir. Add nuts and stir.
Pour mixture into greased and floured 9x5x3 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes.
And don't forget to wash up afterward! :)
