Hello all! This past week we had some super yummy meals that we are dying to share with you. We are constantly trying out new recipes and look forward to eating them each week. The meals we chose this week certainly did not disappoint! Read on to find out what we made. Monday: Cauliflower, Potato, Onion, and Lentil Curry with Naan. We had an Indian Korma simmer sauce we bought at Whole Foods so we threw all of these ingredients in a large pot and let it cook for about 30-40 minutes then served with some naan. It was pretty good but could have had some more flavor. Tuesday: Naturally Ella’s Curry Grilled Vegetables with Chickpeas and Creamy Polenta. This was the first time we have had polenta and it was pretty good. We were a little confused by it so we will continue to experiment with other recipes that use polenta. The veggies came out great! Just for the record though, if you follow this recipe, Naturally Ella calls for 1 cup of “polenta” but she means yellow cornmeal. You are making polenta, not adding polenta to water. Wednesday: Half Baked Harvest’s Chopped Asian BBQ Chicken Salad with Honey-Sesame Crackers. This salad was sooo good! And the crackers, oh yum. I could just eat those crackers all day long. We marinated the chicken overnight and then tossed it all with a big salad with carrots, lettuce, snap peas and some roasted broccoli. Thursday: The Almond Eater’s White Bean Breakfast Hash. Yum! Another delicious dish this week. We didn’t have white kidney beans so we just used red kidney beans and it turned out great. We served ours over some spinach and had some leftover sweet potato and made plantain chips to go with it. For the plantain chips, we just sliced up the plantain and sauteed it in coconut oil, flipping halfway through and watching so the plantains don’t get too too dried out. Friday: Salad and random leftovers. It wouldn’t be a normal dinner week for us if we didn’t have a random leftovers night. We each made salads with scraps of leftovers that you accumulated through the week. We also made some snack plates full of fruits, veggies, and some pretzels.
Saturday: Leftover white bean and breakfast mash. Still good the second time around!
