I’ve borrowed the theme from one of my favorite college restaurants and made a deliciously healthy version of what they called the “Flyin’ Mayan:” a sweet potato and black bean burrito. I’ve grilled my sweet potatoes in thick slices much like steak fries. Adding black beans, corn, avocado and my yummy vegan slaw, all wrapped up in a soft, warm flour tortilla – it’s the perfect combination!

I view Pad Thai as the Thai version of leftover night, only unlike a typical leftover dinner, this is a dish everyone can get excited about. Open your refrigerator and start throwing in ingredients – literally, just toss them into the wok or large skillet and sauté until all the flavors aromatically permeate your house and call everyone to the meal. A great recipe + a yummy ingredient giveaway = a win-win!

The dish now known as Ratatouille is an ancient Mediterranean stew traditionally known as “Peasant’s Food,” since it is essentially comprised of any leftovers you can find thrown into a pot and cooked down together. Farmer’s food: fresh local vegetables, stewed in regional herbs, it can change with particular influences of the chef preparing it, and can vary every time you make it as well!
