after making the grilled mahi mahi with tamari and orange sauce, i had a lot of sauce leftover and i didn’t want to waste it so i saved it for another dish. i picked up some chicken breast and asparagus and dipped them in the leftover tamari and orange sauce. score! with the sauce on the grill, i was able to dilute it and lightly fry some leftover rice with the flavor.

another dish in the Kitchens of India Just Heat & Eat family: Dal Bukhara / Black Gram Lentils Curry.
if you asked me a few years ago to eat lentils, i’d say “no thank you!” but since i’ve been cooking for k, and i see how much she likes it, i have been more receptive to foods i previously avoided.
so, with a package of Dal Bukhara, some grain – today i made a huge put of millet so that is the grain for the day – and lots of vegetables: asparagus, bell peppers, tomatoes and spinach! i am SO full!
another Kitchens of India Just Heat & Eat package i picked up: Rajma Masala / Red Kidney Beans Curry. i’m more familiar and prefer to eat / cook with chick peas or black beans so i’m happy to try the other beans when it already has been flavored and indian curry is a wonderful choice!
as with the other Kitchens of India Just Heat and Eat package, dilute it with a few cups of water and add a lot more vegetables, thereby creating feast! indian food is usually paired with rice but as in my previous post, i had discovered adding quinoa or millet is equally wonderful. enjoy!
