Don`t have much to say, but this is super simple and again a good make-ahead candidate as the kale can take some time to braise. You could make it in advance, but I did it all at once. And it is healthy and super flavorful. To cut time, sub the kale for spinach. I had some lacinato kale (aka flat or dinosaur kale) and this seemed as good of place as any to use it. If kale is not your bag, mix it with either spinach or use regular kale – lacinato kale is very kale-y. Also, this is pretty low cal.
This has totes picture fail, but whatever.
Don`t skip the simple salad!
I found this recipe for chilaquiles on Serious Eats, it looked great, but turned out needed some work. The salsa verde was great, though charring it will make it lose it`s green color. That part was all fine, it was the topping which was lacking – it simply was not seasoned and too dry, I managed to fix it on the spot by adding some more veg and seasoning.
This is pretty easy and is a good make ahead meal.
The husband was sad that he was called out here for coming home late yesterday. But I had wanted to go to the gym earlier – my shows were on! He redeemed today by starting this while I worked late today.
I saw a recipe on thekitchn.com for a coconut curried chickpeas over sweet potatoes (theirs is linked at the end of post). That did not appeal totally. So this is what I came up with, it is sorta Moroccan-Mediteranean in flavor profile, like southern Spain in the cold mountains or something like that. And while I don’t normally post calories, this whole ginormous plate clocks in at 670. So healthy, low cal, check and check. Oh and it is super speedy, other than baking the potatoes. Super tasty too.
It is cold and rainy and I really and a bit irked that I am not currently at the gym because the husband did not decide to leave work and I need him to let me in my building`s gym because they don`t have my hand scan for entry yet because they only take hand scans on Fridays between 9 and 11am when I am at work. So I am waiting, and have started roasting, not on the timeframe I wanted. Boo! Ok, am off to the gym. Follow along with the rest of the recipe.
