Some times I look in the fridge and think, "Oh, there's nothing for dinner". At first glance that may have been how the fridge seemed tonight but when I thought about it I realised there was any number of delicious and nutritious combinations just waiting to be created.
I had my usual trusty stock of humus, various fresh veggies, sweet potatoes and salady bits.
So, I did the following:
Slice 1 red pepper
cook 1 sweet potato
Cut 1 avocado in half
chop up 2 carrots in the hand blender
lightly saute some kale with garlic
open a jar of almonds!
Dolloped on some humus.
Drizzled over some tamari sauce (like soy but wheat free and tastier)
Everything was raw bar the sweet potato and the kale making it super easy. The sweet potato I pricked, wrapped in kitchen roll and whacked it in the microwave for 6 minutes. The Kale took less time in a big saute pan.
Then all I had to do was divide it all between 2 plates and we were ready to go.
It was really lovely and very satisfying thanks to all the different textures and colours. Filling but light and guilt free.
It was a good reminder that good food doesn't have to be created from a 'recipe' as such, or combined together to make it into something else. Sometimes the raw (and literally raw in some cases) ingredients do as good a, or a better, job just as they are on the plate.
