Like many of my clients at the end of a work-day, last night I was too tired to cook, but wanted something nourishing for dinner. I prepared a Indian Dinner in about 20 minutes that was GREAT and very satisfying!
Here is my short cut method. The 1st Grocery store I went by, I ran in and asked where the Indian Foods are. I grabbed a box of Punjab Eggplant for about $4. I choose this because it was the only one I could find. Usually there is more of a selection. The company is that makes this instant meal is “Tasty Bite”.
At home, I grabbed all the fresh summer veggies we had in the refrig. & chopped, sautéed them in olive and sunflower oil . I started with fresh garlic cloves, and onion – including the green stems. I added swiss-chard, summer squash, and zucchini. I cooked a batched of organic brown rice on another burner at the same time.
I added some coconut oil to the rice. I added curry and ground cumin and salt to the sautéed. I added the box – actually it was a bag in a box – of Punjab eggplant. I remembered I had some cooked black beans in the freezer – left over from another dish. I tossed those in as well.
This meal is VERY satisfying. I put it on top of rice and then had fresh watermelon. Great dish, fast and healthy !
