Tonight was gym night, so we got home late, around 8:20 PM, and we were starving so we needed something quick and easy. These are so simple it seems silly to write out recipes for them, but hey! Why not. 🙂
Eggplant-Spinach Pita Pizza for Two
- 2 whole wheat pitas (we love Joseph’s Omega-3 Flax Pitas, Joseph’s is local to us.)
- Tomato sauce
- Eggplant cutlets
- Baby spinach leaves
- Italian seasoning
- Lowfat shredded mozzarella
We already had the eggplant cutlets because my mom made me some last weekend. 🙂 They are thin-sliced eggplant rounds dipped in egg and breadcrumbs and baked.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Lay out alumnium foil on a cookie sheet, and lay the two pitas out on the aluminum foil. Spoon out a thin layer of tomato sauce on each pita, then make a layer of baby spinach leaves on top of that. Lay out the eggplant cutlets on top of the spinach. Finally, top the pitas with 1/8 cup each shredded mozzarella and a sprinkling of Italian seasoning. Bake the pizza in the oven for about 12 minutes.

Sweet Potato Curry Fries
- 1 large sweet potato
- Cube of curry powder (we love S&B Golden Curry sauce)
- Olive oil spray
Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees. We really lucked out by having a bag of Trader Joe’s pre-cut sweet potato sticks. If you are not so lucky, take two sweet potatoes, peel then, and chop them into long thin fry-like sticks. Line a baking sheet with aluminium foil and spray lightly with olive oil. Spread the sweet potatoes out on the aluminium foil and spray on top of the sweet potato lightly. Salt & pepper if you like. Bake the sweet potatoes for 20 minutes, then flip and bake an additional 10. While the sweet potatoes are in the oven, take one square block of the curry powder and heat it on low in a small pot with 1 cup of water. Pull the sweet potatoes out when they are browned (ours were not super-crispy), and portion out the curry sauce into ramekins. Dip the sweet potato fries in the curry sauce and enjoy. 🙂
