Simple and Hearty

 After being out of produce for way too long, I took a much needed 3 minute trip to the fruit market with roasted veggies in mind. I love the little one room market down the road, because I can get two bags full of fruits and veggies for less than $10. It’s great! It’s also nice supporting a family business as opposed to the Giant Eagle…and I can get a break from GE’s ridiculous prices too. This time of year, most of the produce isn’t local, but I guess you’ll get that anywhere.

When I got home, I chose the simple sweet potato to roast for dinner.


I chopped up the potato, which created a surprising amount of little potato pieces.


The potato pieces got a light coating of olive oil, salt, pepper, chipotle powder, garlic powder, freshly ground nutmeg, and agave nectar.


Into the oven at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes…


A cup of chai tea in my favorite mug to drink with dinner :)


The sweet potato was slightly spicy, slightly sweet, and slightly salty. It was served with leftover quinoa mixed with goat cheese and wilted baby spinach.


A simple and hearty success!


  1. This looks like a great hearty (and meatless) dinner!

  2. I adore that mug. what a great dinner!
