Looking for something a little different for dinner? I know I yam. sorry, ’bout that joke…couldn’t help myself!
One of the things I want to try more of this year is to eat less meat.
I don’t know why really, other than all I know is that on those days when I don’t eat meat, I feel lighter…
So this is a great recipe for Meatless Monday!
I also want to be more adventurous in the kitchen this year.
Try new things. New spices. New ingredients.
So I thought I would start with this Potato, Yam & Chickpea Coconut Curry that I saw in Canadian Living.
It just sounded soooooo good to me.
But I was nervous about this dish. It’s very outside of my comfort zone with respect to feeding the kids.
My kids have kind of a bland palate (totally my fault).
It’s just easy to feed kids what they like, because you just want them to eat, you know?
And there’s nothing I dislike more than busting my butt in the kitchen only to have the kids hate their dinner.
But times are a ‘changin, and the kids are going to try and like new things if it kills me! 😉
A big surprise though…they liked this. Even the baby had 3 bites, and for him that’s big – usually he just looks at food and decides whether or not he’s going to eat it. 3 bites is big.
So overall, I’d say this dish was a success!
This is a neat recipe. You can make it either in a crockpot, or your oven.
The original recipe is actually a crockpot recipe, but the day that I decided to make it,
I realized I didn’t have enough time for the crockpot to work it’s magic, so I put it in the oven. Worked fabulously!
So on with dinner…
