Week 2, Day 6: easiest day w/ Hummus, Pasta, and Chocolate Pudding

Scrumptious meals made from scratch, using healthy ingredients, that don't make you spend all your time in the kitchen? This 13th day of the Cook for Good Challenge will make you feel lucky that this can be true.

broth jar with sponge foods: rice, oatmeal, and noodles

Today, you boil noodles and green beans, then make a marvelous chocolate pudding for dessert. Keep your cool by cooking the pasta in just enough water to get the job done, as shown in the video below. Boil the pasta in water from your broth jar if you have any, and return that water plus the water from boiling green beans back into your broth jar. Use the broth to make any "sponge" foods: rice, oatmeal, or noodles.

Today's Classic Menu

The bold text below shows what you'll be making today. Cut up tomato and bell pepper to have for lunch if you didn't cut up a double batch yesterday. Bake the Garlic Flatbread if you decided to not bake it all yesterday. Boil rotini, heat up the Tomato Sauce with Summer Squash, and make Green Beans Vinaigrette for dinner. Give the pot you used to make green beans a quick rinse, then use it to make Chocolate Pudding. Make a double batch of pudding to enjoy warm today and chilled tomorrow.
