Get Creative

I’m discovering that Meatless August is requiring a bit of creativity. I too often think of veggies as just something to take up part of the plate, next to the meat, which is the real dish. So vegetables don’t have to be pretty or particularly tasty or even cooked any differently than they usually are; they just have to be there. But when vegetables become the main dish, you have to start thinking of different ways to prepare them.

My daughter, Melinda, demonstrated that last night with her sweet potato enchiladas. Who would think to put sweet potatoes in enchiladas? Beans, sure. But sweet potatoes? That’s coloring outside the lines. She sent this picture. They look delicious and her report was “they’re pretty great!”
