For this final edition of my sweet potato series, I decided I’d make a quick stop to Asia and incorporate the last third of my potato into a delicious noodle soup. Since I hadn’t roasted it earlier, I figured I’d switch it up a bit and boil it instead. Now the thing is that boiled potatoes usually taste quite bland. So I made the best out of it and came up with this amazing noodle soup where it actually makes sense to have them boiled. Score!

Another week, and two other sweet potato recipes to come! Using the second third of my *gigantic* spud, I chose to make some delicious Sweet Potato-Spinach-Millet patties.

Though I’ve already talked to you about this burning passion of mine in a previous post, I’ll just add a few reasons to the list: Continue reading “Veggie Fried Rice with Roasted Eggplant and Red Pepper”
This past week-end was an amazing one! I just got back from a great trip to Montreal, where I got to visit a friend of mine over break! I had only been there once before and had forgotten most of it, so it felt really good to go back and rediscover the city. I really enjoyed the beautiful crisp weather, the fall color palette of the trees on Mont-Royal, walking across old city and chinatown, and obviously lots of Canadian delicacies.
