Tandoori Sweet Potatoes

I’ve noticed over the past year or two that the recipes I share on the site are heavily skewed towards vegetarian main dishes with a few desserts and random recipes sprinkled in as I go. One thing I don’t share a ton of is vegetables as side dishes (primarily because when I whip up a vegetable dish, I put enough bulk behind it to make a full meal).

However, this is a recipe I use as a ‘meet in the middle.’ My husband will have this as a side dish and I’ll top a bowl of quinoa/greens with these sweet potatoes (usually followed by a dollop of greek yogurt) to make these sweet potatoes that full meal I desire.

These sweet potatoes take a bit of time to cook but if you’re in a bit of a hurry, you could cut the sweet potatoes into smaller sizes or even blanch them just until the sweet potato was beginning to soften (then roast!) I’ll also make a full batch of the tandoori seasoning and use it on other vegetables (or chicken, if that’s your thing) as well!

Food Navigator’s special issue on breakfast cereals, plus additions

First see Bloomberg News on Who killed Tony the Tiger: How Kellogg lost breakfast (February 26)Next, see what’s happening to breakfast from the point of view of the food industry.

What’s for breakfast? Re-inventing the first meal of the day

On paper, breakfast cereal ticks all the right boxes. It’s quick, great value for money, and nutritious – the perfect recession-proof food. Yet US consumption has dropped steadily as consumers have sought out more convenient – and often more expensive – alternatives, and ‘breakfast’ has switched from being one of three square meals a day to just another snacking occasion. So is the future one of managed decline, or can innovation pull the cereal category out of its funk?
