Curried, chicken, garbanzo beans and Sweet Potato stew…

I like a good curry and I found this recipe on Pinterest, and the pictures just looked really delicous. And when I asked my family if they wanted curry my husband and daughter both said yes. So this is what happened, cause I didn’t have all the ingredients and I do like Carrots in my curry.
Also I try not to eat potatoes, rice, pasta and fruits after 3pm, but this is an exception today.

This makes about 5 servings:

Ingredients:
1 small yellow onion
1 tablespoon Olive oil
3 cloves garlic
2 Teaspoons of yellow curry powder you can always add more.
Salt, to taste
1 teaspoon ginger powder
2 Carrots peeled and cut into rounds
1 can (15 oz) diced tomatoes
1 can (15 oz) chickpeas
1 large sweet potato peeled and diced into 1″ chuncks
1 can (15 oz) light coconut milk
10oz. of cooked Chicken Breast
brown rice, for serving

Instructions:
In a large skilled or wok heat the olive oil, and add the onion. Cook for a couple of minutes until the onion has a glazed look, then add the garlic, ginger and Curry Powder, cook for a couple of minutes this will develop the flavors. You can always add more spice later.
Now add all the other ingredients (except for the rice), I rinsed the coconut milk can with some water and added that to the pot as well, so that everything is covered. Then bring to a simmer and cook for at least 30 minutes, even better if you can let it simmer for 50minutes.

At the last minute you can add some parsley to it and serve it over rice.

Bon apetit

Fake Fried Rice…

This is now a comfort food … 

Serves 1
Ingredients:
1 whole egg
3 egg whites
1.5 cups of Frozen stir fry veggies. (this is what I had, you can do fresh)
1/2 cup of cooked Quinoa
1tsp of coconut oil
2tsp Amino Liquids
Use a non stick pan and heat the coconut oil. Wisk the egg and egg whites together and add 1 tsp of the amino liquids. Add to the pan. Do not touch, this is important, you wanna make like an omelet, when you can see that there is little liquid left fold the omelet over on the 3rds. You get like a sausage looking thing. Put omelet on cutting board. Now put Quinoa and veggies into the same pan and add the rest of the Amino Liquids. Let that cook for a couple of minutes to defrost and cook the veggies. Cut the omelet into strips. And put half of it at the bottom of the bowl. Then put the rest in with the veggies, cook for another minute and serve.

Simple Hummus

I love hummus and it’s delicious with veggies and it makes for great “fake” deviled eggs.

So years ago I found a recipe that I adapted, cause I did not have any Tahini. This is super easy and fast.

2 cans of Carbanzo Beans, you can also cook your own.
2 Gloves of Garlic
4-6 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
Paprika
this makes about 12 two tablespoon servings

Throw it all in the food processor until smooth.

Enjoy.
