I wanted to start off with a salad, so I took some fresh spinach, heated it up in the micorwave for just 30 seconds and topped it with some fat-free feta:
But of course that wasn't enough... So, on went some oven-roasted veggies!
I sliced up half of a small onion (hello tears! My eyes are still recovering, over half an hour later...), some small tomatoes and a small zucchini. Sprinkled on some kosher salt, pepper and some garlic powder. I made enough for two servings, so hooray for a second roasted veggie salad for lunch tomorrow! This combo reminded me of how awesome spinach and onions are.
Next came the heat. Yeah, this guy knows what I'm talkin' about:
This stuff makes my nose run and my upper lip sweat, but who said love is delicate?
I took a veggie burger (Morning Star, I believe?), chopped it up, threw it in a pan and added a couple tablespoons of the BBQ sauce. And when using spice these days, I gotta add in some sweetness too, so I threw in some pineapple tidbits for good measure.
Served with some baked semi-curried sweet potato fries on the side. I sliced up the potato and tossed it with:
- 2 tsp olive oil
- kosher salt
- dash of cinnamon
- dash of red curry powder
- dried parsley flakes
