Friday night. Home a bit late. Andy's home even later. Leftovers in the fridge to use up, and not much else besides broccoli and potatoes in the fridge. Not much motivation to put effort into dinner, but no viable takeaway options around. (As an aside: I think I feel like a grown up these days, and the reason I've identified is because I look forward to Friday evenings in sweatpants, flicking between Better Homes & Gardens and Masterchef.)
Solution: baked potato bar.
Because I was in a hurry, I put the two plain potatoes in a pot of water, brought it up to the boil, then turned it down to very low for about 20 minutes. After taking them out, I pricked them all over with a fork, and did the same to two sweet potatoes. Rub all with oil, sprinkle with salt, and put in a baking tray. Since there was space in the tray, I added some chopped broccoli, sprinkled with lemon juice. 200 degrees (400F) and 45 minutes later we had soft-inside, crispy-outside baked potatoes.
To put on top, tomato chutney; leftover burrito filling; creamy mashed avocado; and hummus.
One of my potatoes, with hummus, avo, and chutney.
Good, easy, and not terribly unhealthy.
