We’re out of fruit, which meant vegetables for lunch!
It’s rare that I spend more than 20 minutes preparing a meal. I love cooking, but I don’t like spending a lot of time in the kitchen, so my style is more 20 minute meals. But today it was fun to have a couple of projects going at once.
First I got some sweet potato fries going –
Wedged + fried and covered in olive oil, cinnamon, cayenne and salt
Baked on a wire rack for 40 minute at 400*
While they were baking, I decided to cook some kale. And by cook I mean massage it to tenderness.
In my big bowl of kale went a lime, 2 tbsp lemon juice, a quarter cup of lemon hummus, 1 tbsp olive oil and salt sprinkled all around.
As Alton Brown says, clean hands are a cook’s best friend! Massage until tender and the volume has decreased a bit.
As an after thought, I decided to hard boil some eggs for protein!
Yum! Maybe my favorite way to eat eggs? No wait, deviled is #1. This is #2!
A drizzle of maple on the fries
And a kiss for dessert! Karen brought a few of these over : )
I have an afternoon out on this pretty day!
