a weeknight dinner
A friend came for dinner last night and I had made a turkey meat loaf, moist and flavorful. To accompany it I boiled a yam just to the point of slight underdoneness. I cut it into large cubes, then sauteed it in olive oil, along with scallions, halved grape tomatoes, garlic and asparagus. When done, I showered fresh cilantro over all. Delicious.! I had some flatbread on hand, so I brushed both sides with olive oil and sprinkled the top with za'atar, then toasted it in a 375 oven until browned and crisp. This informal melange of textures and flavors came together happily.I'm looking forward to the leftovers.
