Ayep, I am a Whimsical Ecelectic MawMaw. I wanted something different for breakfast, Flavorful. (I have never been the usual foods for breakfast gal) Of course we need good for my health get me through the day food. So I decided to have a mix up.
I was a Chef’s Assistant at a Country Club in the mid 70’s. The best Advice Chef Richard told me was to smell my spices before adding. If they smell like what you are wanting to make, add a little and taste. Always a little, because you can always add to, but you cannot take from.
Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Garam Masala seasoning. I love this Seasoning, the depth of warmth and exotic flavor matches perfect with Roasting a Sweet Potato. This Is One Large Mississippi Sweet Potato cut like fries. I sprinkled about a Teaspoon of Garam Masala. Add some Salt and Olive Oil, Toss it to coat and bake for 20 minutes in a 400° Oven and you have Tender, Sweet and Savory in every bite.
Here’s the good for you part that Mawmaw has to let you know about. Sweet Potatoes: Sweet potatoes are a rich source of fibre as well as containing an array of vitamins and minerals including iron, calcium, selenium, and they’re a good source of most of our B vitamins and vitamin C. ~~BBC Good Food. Also according to Medical News Today Health Benefits are: Improving insulin sensitivity in diabetes, Maintaining healthful blood pressure levels, Reducing the risk of cancer, Improving digestion and regularity, Protecting eye health, Boosting immunity and Reducing inflammation. So this one Sweet Tater is I believe Labeled a Super Food. Makes for a Super Day! 😉
Now let’s look at this Garam Masala Spice Blend. I do get mine from Spice and Tea Exchange Garam masala is full of antioxidants which help in preventing skin problems and also help fight inflammation. According to Dr. Rupali Dutta, garam masala has carminative properties and apart from boosting digestion, it also helps in fighting bloating, flatulence and even nausea. ~~NDTV Food
I can say that with all foods Unprocessed is best. Everything in Moderation.
The Sammie? Ayep it’s another one of my Flavor Foods … It consists of a Frozen Slice of Whole Foods Pioneer Bread (or what you have on hand that you enjoy). Spread w/Basil Pesto. Then slice in half. Add a Slice of Muenster Cheese cut in half and placed on both sides. Slice of Tomato placed on top of one side ( Or like me one for each side). I Sprinkled McCormick’s Himalayan Salt, Pepper, Garlic Mix Blend on. (This Blend has become a favorite and used Daily) Put onto a sheet pan in Toaster Oven or oven til Cheese is melted and Bread Toasted. Put them together as a sammie, or eat Open faced. Whichever makes you smile.😁
And I will not Torment you on the goodness of the Sammie.
Always Remember, In today’s time, Information is at your fingertips. If this MawMaw can do it, so can you.😊
Waving 👋 Until next Time. May Today and All Your Tomorrows be filled with Grace, Love, Laughter, and Peace. ~~MawMaw Pam
