Last nights dish...

It was a vegan/lenten concoction of starch upon starch. It was good, I think. Well, it satisfied, and it wasn't yet another night of spaghetti on the Nativity Fast.

I'll call it Curried Sweet Potatoes on Rice. I think I may just do it again with a couple tweaks. Here's how I did it:

Made some basmati rice. While that cooked I boiled sweet potatoes. When those finished I set them aside, got a big pan out and sauteed vegan butter, a minced clove of garlic, a small sliced onion, and some salt. When the onions were almost carmelized I added the sweet potatoes which were quite mushy. I smashed them more as I added them to the pan. Then I thought, hmm, needs something else, what do I have? Oh half a bag of frozen spinach. Why not? I threw it in straight from the freezer. As it heated, I added more salt, some chopped Italian parsley, and about two tablespoons of curry powder. I also added about a cup of water so it would be a bit thinner and have a runnier consistency, which would be good on the rice. Next time I will add maybe another cup, because it was still pretty thick. Better yet, if I have some, I would use veggie stock. It was good in some flat bread we had hanging out in the fridge. Jason liked it, but Hannah was not super impressed until I added a wee bit more salt to hers.
