Leftovers are one of my least favorite things. It’s so disappointing to have to finish food from the day before instead of making something new (I’m spoiled, I know). So, in order to deal with leftovers, I just try to liven them up a little and remind myself that the sooner I eat them, the sooner I can make something new.
Today, I had a lot of TVP taco leftovers to get out of my sight. Don’t get me wrong. I love TVP tacos. I just don’t like leftover TVP tacos. I also had some vegetables that were on their way out, so I threw them all together into quite a lovely lunch.
- 3 ears of corn
- 1/4 of a medium onion
- 1 large tomato
- 1 avocado
- 1 large jalapeno
- juice from 1 lime
- 1/3 cup cilantro
Boil the corn for about 8 minutes. I was in a hurry, so I ran cold water over the ears to cool them quickly. Cut the kernels off of the ears and break them apart with your fingers or a knife.
The rest is easy. Just throw all of the vegetables into a bowl, stir it up, squeeze the lime juice over it, and add salt and pepper to taste.
Served with the leftover TVP on an Ezekiel tortilla.
