Twice Baked Potatoes (Indian)

This is one of my favorite meals lately, and we have endless combinations… lentils/spinach, garbanzos/spinach, mujadara, potatoes/peas, cauliflower, potatoes/tomatoes, potatoes/cauliflower/tomatoes…you get the picture. Now with the addition of tomato chutney I’m even more head over heels in love with this type meal. I was cooking for the in-laws, and I couldn’t decide between the aforementioned […]

Panang Curry

This version brought the heat and was super tasty. We’ve been using a Korean hot pepper paste to heat up the curries lately, and I recently switched from a level 3 to a level 4 “very hot”. Yes!

Summer Squash Yellow Curry

Another delicious curry. I’m feeling like you really can’t go wrong with curry. Different spice pastes, different veg, different heat levels, herbs, etc. It’s all so tasty. I decided to go with a yellow curry this time. Sticking with the “yellow” theme I used some gorgeous squash we picked up at the market. I’m really […]

Potato Burrito

Yes, I said it. Potato….burrito. Oh yum. Why have I never had this before?? I am so excited when something like this is so delicious on the first try. I get the most inspiration from menus and titles of recipes. I was doing some quick searching for new Cinco de Mayo ideas, and I spotted […]

Masman Curry

I have a new love. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of this. Somehow I’ve missed it in my favorite cookbook for years now. I was unable to obtain the spice paste in town, so I ordered it from Amazon. It’s totally different than red or green curry pastes. It’s a roasted paste that includes […]

Leek Soup

Leftover ingredients sometimes have accidental tasty results. This week’s leftover was leeks. I don’t think I’ve ever made leek soup, and if I did it was obviously not that memorable. This was super simple and perfect for a drab rainy day. Cost: ~ $0.80 per serving Print Leek Soup Author: Next Good Meal Serves: 3   Ingredients […]

Roasted Root Vegetables

I made enough for leftovers because this type thing is so delicious leftover. Couple potatoes, carrots, parsnips along with rosemary, thyme, one onion and a whole head of garlic (whole cloves peeled). Add about a cup of veg stock and a splash of lemon juice. Salt & pepper. Roast for about an hour at 425. […]

Dinner – Frittata

Frittata is basically an open faced omelette and a simple and tasty way to use extra ingredients. Just like pizza, pasta, or risotto, there are infinite possibilities for flavor combos. This one included bacon, potato, kale, caramelized onion, mushrooms, and cheese. Cost: $3.90 Print Frittata Prep time:  10 mins Cook time:  20 mins Total time:  […]
