I rarely forget to cook dinner. I mean, part of my brain spends all day thinking about what to fix for dinner. (While the rest of my brain processes payroll, deals with HR dramas, and drives back and forth to work.)
So if I ever do forget to cook dinner until the last minute, it's usually because I've become engrossed in some project I've been putting off for weeks, like completing my graduate school application. Thus, when this rare scenario happens, I just go with it... and make something easy and scrumptious, like this sweet potato curry!
Late Night Sweet Potato Curry
~ Saute an onion in some olive oil (preferably a red onion, because they are awesome.)
~ Meanwhile, baking some sweet potatoes - I baked 4, since there were two of us and I wanted to have some leftovers for lunches as well.
~ Cut the baked sweet potatoes into cubes, and add them to the onion with some broth.
~ Season generously with curry powder, and add some salt and pepper as well.
~ Serve warm, topped with Greek yogurt, raisins, and slivered almonds!
With sweet potato curry leftovers for lunch, and Greek yogurt for breakfast, I truly felt like I was dining in style at work last week. A coworker recently introduced me to Chobani's blood orange Greek Yogurt, which is life-changing! You must try this tangy deliciousness! :-)
Another recent favorite are bagel thins! I've recently become hooked in an effort to find a healthier alternative to the amazing local bagel shop down the street from my office... We used the "everything" version (onion, poppyseed, and sesame!) to make egg and cheese bagels this morning, with a bit of low-fat cream cheese, a steamed egg, and low-fat pepper-jack cheese!
During the work week, though, I'm still a Greek yogurt girl... This combination of plain fat free Greek Yogurt, sliced banana, Trader Joe's High Fiber O's, and cinnamon rocked my world! Wishing you a beautiful week filled with sweet potatoes and Greek yogurt!
