Have I mentioned it’s too hot to cook? Yep, I have and it is.

I’ve recently discovered just how amazing frozen veggies and the microwave are during a heat wave, and I’ve been whipping up all sorts of delicious meals using them.

Frozen veggies + microwave = no need to turn on your oven and sweat to death.

One of my favorite foods to eat with cheese is broccoli. Growing up, my mom often melted a slice of cheese over the broccoli on my dinner plate, probably to encourage me to eat it, but also because she knew it was a delicious combo. I mean, who doesn’t love broccoli and cheese together? Am I right?

This super easy recipe takes broccoli and cheese one step further by adding superstar spinach, protein-rich chicken, and low-calorie creamy Swiss from The Laughing Cow. You basically get the best of both worlds in this meal: light and healthy mixed with creamy and satisfying. And, the best part, besides the minimal cooking, of course, is the recipe only calls for four ingredients (the rest you probably already have in your kitchen)!
