Healthy Coffee Pot Foods...Part Two

There's been such a great response to 'Healthy Coffee Pot Foods' that I've decided to make a part two!
  • Egg Drop Soup: Pour one cup of low sodium broth or stock into the carafe. Chop up a scallion and toss into the carafe. Crack an egg into the carafe and stir. Turn the coffee pot on and allow to 'cook' until the the stock starts to boil and the egg whites have formed.
  • Drain a small can of black beans and add to carafe, add a quarter cup of salsa to the carafe and a quarter cup of part skim shredded cheese. Turn the coffee pot on and leave on until food is warmed through. Stir and eat as is or on top of rice!
  • Pasta: Yes, you can cook pasta!!! Use any type of whole wheat pasta, and place in carafe. Add your salt to the carafe. Add water and turn the coffee pot on. Allow the hot water to cover the pasta, then leave the pot on for 10-15 minutes, until pasta is cooked. Enjoy with sauce of your choice!
  • Steamed Spinach: Place spinach in filter. Add water to the coffee pot and turn on.

Stay tuned...there just may be a Part 3!
