Last night’s dinner and today’s lunch! I love cooking elaborate meals, and I wish I had more time to. This meal was actually pretty simple to make (a lot of cooking in pots) and didn’t require a large amount of dishes to be done after (which you know is a huge thing for me). I’m definitely looking forward to the carrot cake muffins I made too when I get home. Happy Monday and Earth Day! I’ll share some Earth day things on my stories later ✨
#dEATs: chickpea “bread” crumb trout + maple cooked carrots + garlic butter green beans + mashed sweet potatoes
To make mashed sweet potatoes:
1. Boil 3-4 medium sized sweet potatoes (1 sweet potato = about 1 serving of mash) for 40-50 min. I cut mine in halves or thirds to reduce cooking time.
2. Drain water and transfer sweet potatoes to bowl. Remove skin (I find it easier to take the skin off after boiling... I also don’t own a potato peeler so here we are) and mash (I used a fork because again... don’t own a masher but we work with what we got!)
3. Transfer mashed potatoes back to pot on low heat. Add 1/4 cup milk of choice (I did almond) and 1/2 tbsp maple syrup per potato used. Add for milk/syrup for softer/sweeter mash.
#AD - cheesy chicken pesto pasta, quick, easy and SO TASTY🤩
This dish took me all of 15 minutes from start to finish! I fried off a mixture of speed food, I have asparagus, onions, and pepper, I fried this in fry light, lazy Garlic & lazy chilli and a tbsp of tomato purée, with some cut up chicken strips and half a pot of @jdseasonings chicken rub spice. I then boiled 75g of pasta(I always weigh mine to prevent eating enough for a small family, but this isn’t something you have to do). Once this is cooked add to the veg&chicken.
Add a heaped table spoon of quark, and a 2 level table spoons of reduced fat red pesto(3syns), and stir this through all together with the pan off of the heat. I added 20g of light cheddar(1/2HeA) and melted for 2 mins in the microwave😍 easy, quick, tasty dinners! What’s not to love🙌🏻
My code ‘JACK20’ will save you money on all orders! Highly recommend🙌🏻
