This is a recipe I've had since well before I moved South as I have always been a big sweet potato fan. This is a simple sweet hash from a book called True Grits... Tall Tales and Recipes from the New South.
I love salads but don't make them as often as I should. This is some great salad inspiration here with this Chickpea, Sweet Potato and Apple Farro Salad.
Sweet potatoes come local this time of year in North Carolina but the rest can come from Trader Joe's!
This simple combo is definitely worth a repeat. I've never myself put farro in a salad but I will do it again!
Day 1 starts off with one of my favorite foods, tacos! Black Bean & Sweet Potato is what I went with (option to use butternut squash but I could get sweet potatoes locally). I currently do not have a microwave so I roasted the sweet potatoes in my toaster oven and chopped up to sauté in the skillet with the other ingredients. I also found the cutest little tortillas made locally. The nice man at the Mexican grocer said the ladies who are on diets like these! I topped mine with salsa and a vegan cheese sauce.
I love looking at photos of beautiful vegan bowls online and ordering them at restaurants but I've never made one before! This was fun and had me wondering why I don't have more bowls in my life. I chopped the veggies up for easier eating and topped with siracha. Leftovers rolled up well in a tortilla! Buzzfeed's Trader Joe's Challenge Protein Packed Vegan Sweet Potato, Kale and Chickpea Bowl I would make again. I paired it with a brew from back home that is a 2016 finalist in one of my favorite lists, the Good Food Awards.... a Lakefront Brewery Growing Power Organic Farmhouse Pale Ale.
I'm on a mission to get through the rows of cookbooks I have and either use them or find them a new home.
Browsing through "Vegetarian Planet 350 Big Flavor Recipes for Out-of-This-World Food Every Day" by Didi Emmons I came across an interesting potato salad.
It's refreshing blend of corn, potatoes and sweet potatoes dressed in s cliantro vinegratte with a suprising ingredient, cucumbers. I think this book is a keeper!
is the smallest kitchen ever. We used to watch those decorating shows that said they were doing small kitchens and then could see that 4 of my kitchens would fit in their "small kitchens".
