Two weeks ago I made a batch of Mama Pea’s curry kale chips and I was in love with that “dressing.” In fact, I definitely ate more of the raw chips than I should have, and then ate a little more after every hour I peaked in my oven (set to “dehydration mode”). The end result was ok… I was a bit disappointed that all that yummy dressing dried up. So last weekend I made another batch – a double batch in fact, of just the dressing!

I’ve been putting this sauce/dressing/whatever you want to call it on everything. I could eat it with a spoon but I’m trying to be civilized.


It’s nutty and slightly sweet… and I am seriously in love. This was just one way I’ve enjoyed it – in a small pita tofu sandwich with mixed greens


One batch is 7 Points Plus. This lunch was 8 Points Plus (tofu was 4 of it). Delicious!!

[Side note: I know everyone LOVES baked tofu but I find that if you press it long enough, you can quickly sauté tofu blocks or mini cubes and you get the same yummy taste for a fraction of time!]

All right, so the point of this post was really this (except for sharing this crazy delicious curry sauce with you) – I made a recipe a second time. That hardly ever happens. That means it was special. The thing is, as much as I like trying new recipes on almost daily basis, I feel like I don’t have any go-to favorites that I make over and over (I think the bahn mi sandwich and goat cheese stuffed pork tenderloin are the only things I’ve made a handful of times). I read books about these heroines coming home after stressful days and winding down with their favorite comfort food… that they made so many times they can just close their eyes and almost meditate while cooking. I want that!! Do you have any go-to recipes? Hopefully something that doesn’t involve too many ingredients. Winking smile

Also, in my attempt to allow for more “me time”, I’ve been permitting myself to not really cook if I feel like just winding down instead. So I’ve been making sandwiches and raiding the freezer for things like pelmeni I have in the freezer for occasions just like these. Do you have any healthy recipes that freeze well? Perhaps something that is not fully cooked and can just be boiled or baked when you’re feeling lazy but still want a home-made meal?

Looking forward to all of your suggestions! I want recipe details, with links. Ok?? Nyah-Nyah
