My kids eats frozen food.
You probably wouldn’t expect me to admit that, but here I am… admitting that. Frozen food? Ewww. But, yeah.
Here’s the short of it.
I’m a mom. I make most things from scratch three times a day. I’m effin’ tired. The end.
There, see? I need a break and I need something at least somewhat decent to feed my kid because she’s just not into green smoothies or protein shakes that much (<– those are quick things that’s why I mention them).
Enter: Amy’s Frozen Mushroom Risotto
Here’s the thing. It doesn’t have any canola oil in it. (<– you know how hard it is to find frozen food without canola?). And, although this particular frozen food has a cheese in it that is probably not grass-fed, I’m not freaking out about it.
Here’s how I make Amy’s more acceptable. I add things to it, like grass-fed butter, and I don’t microwave it.
I get a little soup / sauce pot. (I adore that little pot. I use it to heat water for tea, make sauces, and, well, as you can see, I use it to warm up frozen food from the store.)
I add a few splashes of homemade bone broth and a couple tablespoons of grass-fed unsalted butter. The bone broth adds nutrition and helps it cook in the pot, and the butter adds good fat and nutrition.
I should note that I cook this thing over low heat. (BTW induction hot plates are great. I transformed my kitchen with them.)
PS. There seem to be some decent frozen options out there these days, with grass-fed meats, no canola oil, etc. I haven’t tried them but it’s interesting to see the options coming to market.
