I bought a jar of Seeds of Change Jalfrezi Sauce a month or two ago and — just as I suspected — it came in very handy last night. It was late, I was starving, had a few random ingredients and one of my favorite shows of all time was starting a new season in about 10 minutes, so I needed something fast.
I diced and sautéed a couple of redskin potatoes and a handful of baby carrots first, since they take the longest to soften, in some olive oil. I then added chopped onion, a bunch of chopped yellow pepper and a few handfuls of fresh spinach. I then crumbled a package of tempeh with flax to add some protein.
When it was all cooked down nicely, I added the simmer sauce and let it sit on low for about 10 minutes. I had so much stuff in there, I probably could have used a little more sauce, but it was enough and it was delicious. I had a huge portion of it and there was plenty leftover for lunch the next day (or for another person to have eaten it. I thought I was out of my microwaveable rice (again, In Treatment was starting!!!) so I ate it as it was, but I think it would be great over rice, quinoa, etc. It got high marks from my squeeze, who ate it for lunch today too, so I’ll definitely be buying this sauce — and probably some of their others — again!
