Weekly Food: Charmoula Tempeh and Sweet Potato Burritos

Just a quick hit because I forgot to post last week’s menu. Our two dishes were Charmoula Tempeh with Vegetable Couscous from Peter Berley’s Fresh Food Fast and Sweet Potato Burritos from allrecipes.

The tempeh has been a favorite of mine for several years now. In fact, it was the meal I cooked for Sara on our second date (awww).

Sweet potato burritos go back even farther. They were a favorite from college, and will forever remind me of my lovely roommate, Amy, who was the first to discover them. The one change I would make to them would be to change the spices in the beans. The recipe calls for way too much. Next time, I’ll tweak it (I think adding a chipotle chili is the way to go) and let you know how it goes.

I didn’t snag any pictures, so I’ll leave you with this:

  • I made sweet potato burritos last week too! Oh god they were so good. I think I still have some of the filling in the fridge. I’ll have that for dinner…thanks for the reminder! :)

    Sweet potato burritos sound amazing! It reminds me of one of my favorite dishes at a Mexican takeout place I frequented in Brooklyn when I lived in Windsor Terrace. They had these quesadillas with spinach in them. The spinach was sauteed in garlic and some other stuff and they were AMAZING. Sometimes a little crunchy hippy ad lib on a classic Mexican/Mexicali staple is just the ticket. :)
