Remember, I said I was going to use up the leftover cooked potato and make my Indian dish?? Well here it is, in all its glory. Ok, it's a pretty easy and quick dish to make. But it sure does taste good!
2-3 cooked red potatoes, in wedges or cubed
4 stalks celery, sliced
~8 oz canned chick peas
1/4 cup almond milk (I use unsweetened)
3-5 Tbsp crushed canned tomatoes
1 1/2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp turmeric
salt & pepper
crushed red pepper flakes (optional: if you want it spicy)
Put celery in pot, add 1/8 cup water. Heat on medium. When the water starts to boil, add chickpeas. Stir and let cook for a few minutes. When the water has boiled out, add the potatoes and another 1/8 cup water. Stir and cut up the pieces of potato into smallish pieces. Let cook for a few minutes until the water is boiled out. Add another 1/8 cup water and stir. Add the spices and stir. Add the almond milk and the tomatoes. Stir. If you notice it sticking to the pot, add another 1/8 cup water and stir.
Notice I keep adding water. I think that's what you have to do if you don't use oil. It helps loosen up whatever wants to stick to the bottom of the pot/pan. You're welcome to add whatever vegetables you like. As I was eating this today, I thought perhaps I should've used up some of the okra that's really piling up in the fridge.....next time, I guess. You could add onions or peppers or anything else. Feel free to experiment!
Today's a rainy day....guess we won't be getting our walks in today. And I did REALLY well on the McDougall plan yesterday! No oil. And no dairy! And I didn't even have a beer. Ok, I might have to have a beer tonight after work. Today: so far, so good.

Tomorrow's a day off, so hopefully I'll get to post something good!
