Earlier this year, I think I wrote about a cookbook talk I attended with Pineapple DC. They had Samin Nosrat who authored the book Salt Fact Acid Heat. Someone in the audience asked her a great question that I am now stealing. She asked, “what is your go to meal to cook for yourself when you are busy/exhausted.” I am not sure i remember her response, I believe it involved eggs, A+ in my book, but it got me thinking.
I certainly have a go to when I tired and need to make something and it almost always involved a sweet potato. I usually add veggies beans and cheese, maybe an egg and call it a day. Today’s recipe also involves a sweet potato as a base, a little cheese and some fruit. Serve it with a side salad and you have a quick an easy weeknight dinner when you just don’y have the time and energy to put together something else!
Roasted Grapes & Goat Cheese Sweet Potatoes
Four ingredients to an easy weeknight meal.
- 1 sweet potato
- 1/2 cup grapes
- 1 tbsp goat cheese
- 2 sprigs thyme
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Scrub the sweet potato and poke holes. Add the sweet potato directly to then oven tray. Let it roast for 20-30 minutes.
Add the grapes to a sheet pan and add them to them to the oven. Add the thyme sprigs on top of the grapes. Let them roast for 15 minutes or until they start to blister?
When the sweet potato is done (caution it will be hot). Cut it open and mash the inside. Add the goat cheese and grapes. Ass any remaining thyme to the sweet potato.
You can always microwave sweet potatoes. Make sure to poke some holes to let the air out. I often microwave when i am super hungry! it only takes 5 minutes.
