Pile It UpPosted: January 13, 2011
Tonight was a good night for making food.
I am running a little bit low on produce so tonight I had to pull all of my resources together before heading to Mecca aka Whole Foods tomorrow after work.
I gathered the following and sat down to think of a dinner that would be good as lunch leftovers:
- 1/3 bunch of kale
- 3 small baby yellow potatoes
- 1/2 pint of mushrooms
- 1/2 yellow onion
- 3 slices of seitan deli slices (very odd food but I needed a protein) – Use your favorite!
- juice of 1/2 a lemon
- 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
- fresh parsley from the pots
I decided on a layered plate of flavors.
First I cooked the potatoes in the microwave on high for 6 min (yes I know this is a big no-no but I was hungry). While these were going I started sautéing the 1/2 chopped onion in some olive oil then added the mushrooms and kale – covered. Once the kale wilted I added the mustard, lemon juice and pepper. At this time the potatoes were done and I chopped the two smallest ones and placed them on a plate. I placed the sliced “meat” on the potatoes and then I topped the taters with the kale mix, a huge sprinkle of parsley and feta cheese!
The perfect bite!
I love when my bottom of the produce drawer meals come out well…sometimes they are pretty boring but sometimes I actually can put together something delicious!
Sissy says good night and don’t forget to wear purple tomorrow! Go Ravens! W.I.N.
