Indian Style Tiki Masala

1 jar tiki masala sauce
1 small sweet potato, cubed
1 small yellow or white potato cubed
1 carrote peeled and sliced on diagonal
2 medium sweet onion, sliced in large chunks
1 6oz bag of spinach
2 chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
1 14 1/2 oz can of chicken or veggie broth.
olive oil
salt
pepper

In a large pan saute chicken pieces in olive oil that has been heated to medium high. When they're all done, remove from pan. Add more olive oil and dump in potatoes, carrots, and onions and saute or stir fry till tender and easy to chew. Dump everything back in the pan and add the tiki masala sauce and let simmer for a half hour. I add enough broth to make sure all the food is covered in sauce. Great served over rice.

Spaghetti Squash with Easy Veggie Topping

I cooked the spaghetti sqaush per instructions on the label and used a fork to comb out the strands.

For the topping I chopped

medium red oninon
three cloves of garlic
two pints of cherry tomatoes

I sauteed the onions and garlic in olive oil till tender, added the tomatoes, and a dash of red wine to cook them down. I served this over the squash with a little extra olive oil, and I topped it with a few tablespoons of ground flax seed.
