Not me. The Big Guy. I mentioned something earlier about roasting a chicken for dinner. He liked that idea, but suggested that maybe we could have “regular” vegetables. “Like cut up or mashed.” Might be time to give the Spiralizer a little rest.
There are really good points to having a bowl of mixed roasted spiralized root veggies in the frig. The quesadillas were simple to pull together and great. Yesterday, I wanted some soup. It was easy to add a big scoop of spiralized veggies to chicken broth, spice it up a bit and heat it in the microwave. Sort of like noodle soup, but with vegetables instead.
And then there are the myriad of lunch bowl possibilities. Add some quinoa (or skip the quinoa and add any protein, maybe chicken or a hard boiled egg or leftover salmon) to a bowl of spiralized veggies. Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds and walnuts. Or sunflower seeds or shelled pistachios. Add a simple dressing. Filling and good.
Frank’s interest in the great spiralizing project might be waning, but he really liked yesterday’s spiralized hash browns for breakfast. But tonight, I think I’ll make roasted carrots, onions and potatoes cut in chunks to go with the chicken. I like to keep the Big Guy happy.
