BTD Forums  /  Cook Right 4 Your Type  /  great new dinner idea
Posted by: SheriBerry, Tuesday, May 8, 2007, 10:20pm
I don't know if there are others of you out there who have this need, but I thought I'd post this for all of you cooks...
I've been going to a 6:30 pm yoga class twice a week with my husband ( he's lost 45 lbs on  the BTD!).  We don't get home till almost 8pm... I leave  around 6 or so to get there.. so I came up with this  to stick in the oven..  I just pop in it when I leave and when we get home, whalla!  we have a perfect meal waiting... here's what I do:

I make meat patties out of ground lamb or ground turkey ( you can use  bone in skin on chicken breasts for those of you who eat chicken).   I place them in a big glass pyrex dish.
In a seperate large bowl, I   cut up all sorts of veggies.. the ones I like best are kale, onions, sweet potatoes, and whatever else is compliant.  Then I generously pour olive oil  them and put in like a table spoon of turmeric and a tablespoon of curry... so I toss the veggies  in this ... and pour over the meat patties...  then I put this in  the oven at 275 degrees for about two hours.... and it turns out  wonderful!   The kale   gets a bit crunchy, so I usually try to put some of the sweetpotatoes or onions over the kale...    anyway, thought this  might help  some of you who need to have something ready when you leave for a two hour stretch!

That sound very good.
works well with fish as well but cooking time would be less. I so like the greens cooked this way.
fresh squeezed lemon on top after out of the oven.

all I do is round them into patties.. not too thin... just be sure to be really generous with the curry and the turmeric and olive oil... I put a TON.. and it tastes sooOOOo good...   hope you all have as much luck with it as I do!  I did it tonight, too, because we had yoga.. I did rosemary and some fennel... but it wasn't as good.. I was just doing it for a change.. OH! and I forgot to tell you that I do it with tofu, as well.. I do my own maranaid of  almond butter and tamari and some pommagrante juice.. just slice the tofu.. and  I do cover the tofu with foil.. but I put it in for two hours at 275   and it turns out GRAND.... so this is something  to put in the oven when you go do yoga or exercise! and then you come home to a delicious meal...  my boys played a lot of spring sports.. soccer and tennis.. and I found I could stick this in the oven and have a nice meal waiting..

Great suggestion and marinade tip for the oven baked tofu, sheri.
