WOOOHOOOO!!!! Another 2 for 1. Last post I told you I would let you know what I did with those egg yolks and left over aioli. What are scrappy meals? Meals made from left overs or scraps. They are the scrappiest, they are scrappier than scrappy, and they’re pretty yummy too! I visited England when I was about 10 and we had left overs one night which they called bubble a squeak. I almost called these bubble and squeak meals because of that. Then I googled bubble and squeak to see what it really was and it was a little more specific than just left overs …hmmmm I just got another meal Idea for TRUE BUBBLE AND SQUEAK!
Quick Sweet Potato Griddle cakes:
1 small to medium sweet potato
4 left over egg yolks (or one- two eggs depending on the size of the sweet potato)
2 Tbsp of coconut oil
½ tsp vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp bakind soda
Pinch of salt
Small amount of coconut milk
Take your sweet potato and stab it several times with a fork. Microwave the sweet potato for 6-7minuets turning it over half way. Place a pan of coconut oil onto the stove over medium heat. After the sweet potato cools enough to touch remove the peal and place it into a medium size bowl. Add all of your spices including the vanilla, baking soda and baking powder then add the egg yolks. Mix everything together well adding a small amount of coconut milk until the batter loses some of its thickness. Using a ¼ cup scoop out some batter, place it into the hot oiled pan, and begin forming your griddle cakes. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side. I ate them with coconut butter and almond butter on top….awesome!
Spinach Chicken Salad Chicken salad
1 whole rotisserie chicken (you could also use 2-3 chicken breasts)
½ cup of basil aioli (see previous post)
2 grannie smith apples diced
3 celery stalks (diced)
1 bag of spinach leaves (or any type leafy salad greens)
Take a whole rotisserie chicken, remove the meat, and chop it up into bite size chunks (I used a precooked chicken from central market). Add the chicken to a large bowl along with the rest of the ingredients. Mix it together with a spoon and add a scoop to a bed spinach or lettuce.
Supper easy, super quick, and super yummy! I’m not a fan of spinach but Alex is, so she made a salad out of it. I just ate it straight up.
