Delicious Dinner

I realized recently that my meals have been consisting of a lot of Thai take-out and Mexican food. While this is delicious, it is not always healthy and I missed cooking. Last night I picked out a few ingredients from my fridge and started cooking. I also created a recipe for gluten-free chocolate chip banana bread, which was delicious, but am still trying to remember what I put in it…

1 steak, thinly cut
1/4 chopped onion
1/2 bunch chopped mustard greens
1 sweet potato, cooked and diced
olive oil
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 clove garlic

Cook the steak as you normally would. I fried it on the stove in olive oil and spices on low heat, then took the steak out and used the same pan to cook the vegetables.

Fry the onions in olive oil, and the spices, then add the sweet potato and cook for 5 minutes. Add mustard greens, cook until they are soft and turn a darker green. Sprinkle lemon juice on top while they are cooking.

I had some feta cheese on the side. It took me maybe 20 minutes to make everything, including preparation.  I microwaved the sweet potato in its skin at the very beginning.  This dish could probably feed two people, especially if you have a large sweet potato.

  1. Yum. Good thing I already had breakfast, otherwise you’d be making me hungry.

    Are you on a gluten-free diet? I’ve been avoiding grains and it’s done wonders for me.

  2. I’ve been on a gluten-free diet since 2003, I get pretty sick from items with gluten in them. 🙂
