Last saturday, I had a lovely dinner with my family, and I will share some recipe ideas with you!
I made some red potatoes, with the skin still on to give them a crunch and preserve some of the nutrients. Red potatoes are surprising high in vitamin C, are a good source of folate, niacin, vitamin B6, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, and manganese, pack some iron when you eat the skin, and 1 potato has 5 grams of fiber and 7 grams protein!
Directions for Herb Red Potatoes:
1. Cut small red potatoes into quarters, and add to large saute pan with 2 Tbsp. olive oil. Slice 1 yellow onion, and add to pan.
2. Saute on medium with lid on for 5-7 mins. Add salt and pepper.
3. Add 2 Tbsp. rosemary, 2 Tbsp. Italian seasonings, 1 Tbsp. chili powder, 2 tsp. garlic powder, 4 cloves garlic chopped (or 2 Tbsp). Cook for an additional 10-15 minutes until tender.
4. For the last few minutes turn up the heat to get the skins to get crispy. Season to taste.
Then, after eating our salmon, salad, and potatoes, we had some brownies for dessert! The secret to extra yummy brownies is to add some chocolate syrup (about 1/4 cup) in your mix before baking. Got this idea from another intern in my program, such as great idea, and makes the brownies more chewy and moist. Not so healthy, but no worries, they were delicious!
