Hey guys! Happy Emilyday. What is the good word? I’m getting more and more excited for the coming weekend – I’m so pumped to have my parents here and receive my degree. Woot! Do you guys have any weekend plans that you are looking forward to?
In preparation for my house guests, I had a bunch of cleaning and errands to run after work today. Alas, an easy and fast dinner was a must. Enter – speedy sweet tater stir fry. This dinner is really easy, super tasty and even provides a single-diner with leftovers.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 medium sized sweet potato
½ an onion
1-2 cloves of garlic
1 can of drained and rinsed chick peas
1-2 cups of broccoli (fresh or thawed frozen)
Brown rice or grain of choice
Red pepper flake
Here’s what you do:
Prepare rice or grain according to directions
Peel and chop the sweet potato into 1-inch (ish) cubes
Place on microwave safe plate and nuke for 3-4 minutes or until soft
Chop onion and garlic
Sautee onion and garlic in olive oil until slightly browned
Add sweet potatoes, broccoli and chick peas to pan
I wanted a bit of a kick to this, so I then added some peanut sauce, a dash of lower sodium tamari and some red pepper flake. Served over my brown rice – this was pretty awesome. :) Did I mention the leftovers for lunch tomorrow?
I hope you guys have a great night!
