week of September 11

Rainbow Power Kale Salad - my son was gone for this meal, but my girls liked it far more than I thought they would!  I think the different colors and textures made for a beautiful and delicious salad.  Keep the dressing and peanuts on the side and you'll have great leftovers for the week.

Oven Fajitas - a standard favorite

Green Taco Wraps - a made "real" meat as well, but we put our fillings in lettuce leaves and everyone was happy.  If, like me, you don't have a food processor and use a Vitamix for food processing, make sure to put the walnuts in before the lentils to avoid too many mushy lentils.

Date Night!

Chicken Curry - I first tried the recipe on the side of the Patak Mild Curry Paste jar, but have made some changes and we all enjoy this dish:

1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2-3 chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
3 Tbsp curry paste
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 can diced tomatoes, drained of juices
1 tsp sugar
salt to taste
1/2 cup coconut milk

Heat oil in a large skillet.  Add onions and saute a few minutes.  Add garlic and cook just until fragrant (1 minute).  Add chicken pieces and cook about 5 minutes, until starting to brown.  Add curry paste and mix well.  Add chicken broth, tomatoes, sugar, and 1/4 tsp salt.  Bring to a low boil and simmer, uncovered, 20-25 minutes until chicken is fully cooked and sauce has thickened.  Stir in coconut milk and cook just until heated through.  Serve over rice or with naan bread!
