I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Sweet Potatoes and Greens

A very simple oven baked vegetable dish that you can serve with or without a garlic almond butter sauce. I prefer the vegetables on their own but my daughter likes the added layer of flavour with the sauce drizzled on.

1 medium sweet potato, cut in 1/2 - 3/4" cubes
1 medium onion, sliced
1 1/2 tbsps vegetable oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
4 shanghai tips or baby bok choy, halved
2 cups roughly chopped spinach
1 celery stalk, sliced

Sauce: (optional)
5-7 tbsps water
4 tbsps almond butter
1 1/2 tbsps lemon juice
1 1/2 tbsps soya sauce
2 tsps minced ginger
2 tsps minced garlic
2 pinches red pepper flakes

shredded coconut and sliced green onion to garnish

Preheat oven to 425°F. 
Toss the sweet potatoes and onion with vegetable oil, salt and pepper and spread out in an oiled 13 X 9" baking pan and bake for 15 minutes. Then add the shanghai tips and celery, toss and return to the oven for 10 minutes.

Remove from the oven and mix in the spinach, stirring until it wilts. It's ready to serve as is or try the sauce on it.

Combine the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan, whisking until smooth and bring to a boil. Then simmer 5-10 minutes, adding extra water if needed then drizzle over the veggies. Sprinkle with shredded coconut and sliced green onions.

Serves 2-3
