Tonight's dinner was a variation on a high-raw dinner I often make in the summer: collard wraps stuffed full of tomatoes, cucumber, carrots, bell pepper, hummus, and whatever else is in the fridge. Somehow it always tastes good and manages to fill me up but not sit heavily in my stomach.
It was 52 degrees this morning so my mind was less on a cooling, raw dinner, but an easy, handheld warming something er other.
Picked up collards and a sweet potato at the St. Marks market:
Grand Army Plaza, already cooked sweet potater ($1.50/ lb). I learned this way of roasting them from my mom: just puncture them all over with a fork and roast em in the skin. They cook pretty quickly and taste really sweet. At 400 degrees, it took about 40 minutes to get really soft.
Ain't no looker but whatever! It was good. I ate and spent the next half hour prepping the rest of those leaves! Mucho collard salad, some chopped for smoothies, lunch for tomorrow, and I STILL have leaves left. Not complaining.
