Eating a whole food plant-based diet does not mean forgoing brunch. This Sunday enjoy an old favorite (with an oil-free twist). And you may be asking yourself, wait a second, are potatoes healthy?
But here's the deal: like many carbs, potatoes get a bad rap. But they’re not unhealthy...it’s just they’re usually smothered in oil, cheese, and butter. These oil-free home fries are baked fresh with veggies and spices. Enjoy!
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
3 russet potatoes, cubed
1 onion, diced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
A few handfuls of spinach
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Dice potatoes, and blanch for 10 minutes in boiling water
Pat dry, spread out on a nonstick baking sheet (with parchment paper or a silicone mat), season with black pepper, paprika, and garlic powder
Bake potatoes on 400 for 40 minutes or until crispy
In a non-stick sauce pan, sauté onions and garlic for 10 minutes, while continuously adding a few TBS of water to prevent sticking
Season veggies with sea salt and black pepper
After 10 minutes, stir in spinach and set aside
Once potatoes are done baking, season with black pepper and sea salt
Add potatoes to sauce pan with veggies, stir together and enjoy hot
