Super Easy Skinny Veggie Crockpot Lasagna

Super Easy Skinny Veggie Crockpot Lasagna
Yesterday I saw the movie Frozen. This is going to really date this post for future readers, but worth it. Because I have to talk about how cute it was. If you’re not familiar, Frozen is a Disney movie, um excuse me, musical. A Disney musical. All about an icy land where everything is a little bit magical and a lot bit frozen and where people have names like Hans and Kristoff and Olaf. I told Bjork that he reminded me of the main character Kristoff and he just rolled his eyes. He’s just a reeeal niiice Scandinavian boy, oh ya you betcha. AND THIS: the movie theater now has recliners. Aaaanyways. While we were at this movie, I left a little lasagna cookin’ in the crockpot. Spoiler alert: the lasagna wasn’t super pretty. I chose kale for my veg because a) I kind of like cooked kale, and b) it’s healthy, and c) it was the only vegetable I had in the fridge. Yessss. And I felt like I was repaying myself for all that Christmas sugar. Layers of veggies, sauce, cheese, and thick wavy noodles. PS.

Chipotle Sweet Potato and Brown Rice Egg Skillet When I first started eating vegetarian, one of the things I noticed right away was the lack of flavor restaurants would use in their vegetarian options.
