What's For Dinner?

Spinach Burritos, adapted from the Moosewood Restaurant Simple Suppers cookbook.

(6) soft tortillas
(1) box frozen chopped spinach
2 c. shredded cheese (cheddar, jack or colby all work well)
1/3 c. cream cheese
onion powder (or use real onion... I just don't always have that kind of time.)
1 clove minced garlic
olive oil

Heat a large skillet on medium. Throw in your spinach. When it thaws and warms up add a half teaspoon of onion powder, garlic and a pinch of nutmeg. Add cream cheese and mix well. Add shredded cheese and stir. When mixture is uniform add 1/4 cup to each tortilla, fold up into burritos and place into a greased baking dish. Brush with olive oil. Heat in the oven at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Top with salsa. Cry because it's so delicious and took you less than 10 minutes to prepare.

Roasted sweet potatoes are an awesome accompaniment to this dish. Peel and dice sweet potatoes; coat with olive oil, sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Spread in a single layer on baking sheet. Broil until some of the edges start to turn brown. AMAZING.
