Leftover Mashup: Perfect Paprika Rice, Black Bean Sauce, Hollandaise Drizzle with Roasted Potatoes and Kale

Leftover masup

Every week before going grocery shopping I plan a menu for the week & I make sure to go through my refrigerator & pantry to see what ingredients are needed.  I’ve found this method produces much less food waste, if any.  I had leftovers of my Zesty Black Bean Soup that I’ve already used for two dinners and two lunches and still had leftovers.  I love this soup, but I’m sure you’ve gotten tired of a single food item once in your life 😉 .  I had cooked up my V’eegan Benedict earlier in the week and had leftover Veganized Healthafied Hollandaise Sauce & thought why not combine the two into a mashup meal?!

Farm Fresh Spaghetti Squash with Roasted Oven Fries

oven fries 2The fall harvest keeps on giving!  Last night I paired local farm fresh spaghetti squash with organic roasted oven fries.  Okay, they’re not really fried, they’re baked thinly sliced potatoes and they’re positively delicious!  I’ve found the best cooking comes from hard work the heart; my dad inspired these potatoes.  From the ages of 15 – 24, my family spent summer vacations at Emerald Isle, NC.  We rented a house right on the beach, where the water is a clear emerald green & in August the water temperature is about 81 degrees!  I can close my eyes and be transported back to the deck on the beach, sipping my morning coffee, and watching dolphins swim through the lake-like morning ocean.  In 2010, my dad was on a roll making amazing oven fries.  You cannot beat a morning playing on the beach working up an appetite, running up to the deck and having a full platter of garlic oven fries waiting for you!  Well, my dad always makes the best potatoes (it’s where my love for them comes from.  As a child we would dig up potatoes in the garden & take a bite out of one raw. I still eat them raw to this day).  Not only are these oven fries much more healthy than their fried counterpart, they also bake up very quickly (which I’m sure fellow potato lovers will appreciate).
