With July 4th right around the corner, I was inspired to use some BBQ sauce. After chopping my veggies, everything started falling into place and I kept thinking of more and more ideas. I grabbed my ingredients, started chopping, mixing and pouring and ended up with a Beer n' BBQ hash. I threw a splash of beer in here, some kale in there and BAM. Deliciousness.
Beer n' BBQ Veggies for two
- 1/2 red onion
- 1 Sweet Potato (cut very thing - like matchsticks)
- 1 carrot chopped thin
- 1 cup cooked chickpeas
- 1/2 Alamo Golden Ale beer
- 1/2 cup Stubb's BBQ sauce
- 1/4 cup of kale
First sautee the onion in some olive oil on medium heat. Throw in the chopped sweet potato and carrots and cook for about 2 minutes. Add in the chickpeas, pour in the beer and turn up the heat to high. Bring the beer to a boil and let cook for 5 minutes or until the liquid absorbs and the sweet potatoes and carrots are tender. Add the BBQ sauce and continue cooking for another few minutes. Add the kale and stir till combined.
Voila! The whole meal took probably 15 minutes with prepping and all. A great way to end a blah day.
