I never really plan what I'm going to make.
It just kind of comes to me when I'm standing in front of the fridge.
Last night's dinner is an example of it.
I had a small sweet potato from the farmers market. I cut some thin slices.
Heated up some coconut oil, and added 4 little slices of a chili pepper. This gives the coconut oil terrific flavor. Next I added the thin sliced sweet potato.
When they are done (crispy) take them out of the oil and drain on a paper towel.
Then I tossed in some sliced asparagus in the hot oil. This just takes a minute. Wait for the color to turn bright green and again remove from the oil.
Next I added some spring onion in the oil. After taking that out of the pan, I added half of a large chicken and green onion sausage (no casing).
On a bed of arugula in a salad bowl, I put everything together. I took a picture before mixing it all together. The oil on the ingredients serves as the dressing. The flavors are wonderful together and provide complimenting textures. Simple healthy ingredients. Lots of flavor. You know....Feel Good Eating ;-)
Do you have staple ingredients in your house? Do you have favorite foods that you make all the time? Let me know what they are, and I will try and give you a different spin on preparing it.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!!!
