Garlic-Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes are a nutrient-rich and low-carb alternative to white or yellow potatoes. Their high fiber content helps prevent blood sugar spikes after eating, decreasing the likelihood of diabetes. Furthermore, sweet potatoes contain vitamins A, C and E as well as potassium which may help regulate your blood pressure.
These roasted garlic-flavored sweet potatoes make a delicious addition to your meals. Not only are they easy to make, but incredibly flavorful too! Plus, these potatoes are gluten-free, vegan, and dairy free for extra convenience.
They make an ideal side dish for many types of meat, poultry and fish dishes – ideal for brunch or dinner! With its flavorful combination of roasted garlic and sweet potatoes, sweet potatoes make the ideal complement to just about any meal.
Start by preheating your oven to 400deg Fahrenheit (230deg Celsius). This temperature is ideal for roasting vegetables so they’re tender on the inside and golden on top.
If you’re in search of a more straightforward recipe, baking it is also an option. Just be sure to use a pan large enough for all the sweet potatoes in one layer; otherwise, they won’t get caramelized and won’t be as soft.
Instead of baking the potatoes in the oven, try mixing olive oil and spices for a delicious toss. I love this method because it allows the flavors to penetrate more deeply into the potatoes.
This is an efficient and flavorful way to roast those tasty little potatoes, using cinnamon and garlic for extra depth of flavor. Just be sure to use a rimmed baking sheet and toss them thoroughly so all pieces are evenly covered in spices.
Once they’re evenly roasted, spread them out on your baking sheet so they aren’t crowded. Doing this will guarantee all pieces are cooked through evenly and prevent overcooked or undercooked pieces.
These roasted sweet potatoes make an excellent addition to salads. Dress them up with a light dressing and some feta crumbles for an irresistibly nutritious snack that’s sure to please!
Garlic-Roasted Bell Peppers
Garlic-roasted bell peppers are an easy and delicious way to enhance any recipe. They make for a tasty appetizer, side dish or even topping for pasta. Marinated in garlic, oil and herbs, these roasted red bell peppers will surely leave your mouth watering!
Prepping these roasted bell peppers is a breeze if you roast them on a sheet pan in the oven. This ensures an evenly-roasted product that’s easier to peel away the skin. Alternatively, use your grill for grilling the peppers but be sure to rotate them frequently so all sides get evenly blackened and roasted.
Once you have a large quantity of roasted bell peppers, mix them with some olive oil and minced garlic. Store them in a glass jar with a lid, covering them with olive oil for freshness. These will keep in your refrigerator for about one month.
If you want to freeze peppers, place them in a freezer zip-top bag and seal it securely. To thaw, transfer them to the refrigerator and allow them to thaw slowly; they should be ready for consumption within two weeks.
When you are ready to use your roasted red peppers, simply remove the stems and seeds and either slice them in half or into strips. They can also be added to soups, stews, or stirred into other delectable dishes for an added kick of flavor.
For optimal flavor, select a high-quality pepper with a thin skin. This allows the skin to come off easily and is more likely to last than an unperfected pepper.
Peppers come in a range of varieties that you can find at the grocery store, farmers market or online from places like Misfits Market. Choose from sweet and hot varieties as well as heirloom peppers renowned for their vibrant color and flavor.
These roasted peppers are so flavorful, you’ll want to incorporate them into many recipes throughout the year. Use them as a garnish on pizzas, grilled meats and fish, dips, or even desserts!
Garlicky roasted mushrooms are an easy side dish that takes less than 20 minutes to make and is suitable for most diets – making them the ideal addition to any meal.
Roasting mushrooms instead of sauteing them allows the juices to be released more evenly, making them ideal for stuffing omelettes, tacos and panini as well as serving on top of pizza or other baked dishes.
These delicious garlic-seasoned mushrooms make a delicious addition to any meal and can easily be stored in the refrigerator for later. They’re also an excellent way to add texture and flavor to meat-heavy main dishes such as baked chicken breasts, grilled steaks or pork chops.
Make these deceptively simple roasted mushrooms by wiping them clean with a paper towel or mushroom brush before coating them in oil. Sprinkle on salt and pepper, then spread out on a baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes – your mushrooms should be slightly tender but still firm (not mushy).
Once cooked, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool for a few minutes before squeezing over some lemon juice, sprinkling with thyme, then serving immediately! Serve your salmon cakes with creamy mashed potatoes, cauliflower rice or even polenta!
They’re great with almost any meal, but they’re especially delicious when paired with protein-rich main courses like baked chicken breasts, grilled steaks or garlic prawns. Additionally, they go perfectly well with vegetable side dishes such as sauteed spinach or roasted vegetables.
When sauteing or frying mushrooms, use butter and olive oil. This combination will give your mushrooms that deep rich flavor you love so much.
You can add extra flavors to your fried mushrooms, such as wine or Worcestershire sauce. Just be sure to add small amounts while the pan is still hot and don’t stir or crowd them too much as this could cause them to steam instead of caramelize.
For optimal results, use either a skillet or non-stick pan to fry your mushrooms. The bottoms should become golden, while the tops remain crisp.
Pineapple-Infused Steak with Sweet Potatoes
Pineapple is a tropical fruit with an irresistibly sweet taste and versatility to use in many dishes. When combined with steak, you can create delicious and easy recipes sure to please even pickiest eaters.
This dish’s sweetness from the pineapple marinade is the ideal complement to beef, making it a must-try! Plus, the recipe is so quick and straightforward to make that it’s ideal for an easy weeknight dinner!
For optimal results, prepare this marinade with fresh pineapple juice; it contains bromelain, an enzyme that helps tenderize meat. If you can’t locate fresh pineapple juice, canned pineapple may work just as well.
To prepare the marinade, blend together pineapple juice, fish sauce, coconut aminos, garlic powder and ginger in a blender until thoroughly blended. Transfer this mixture into a large bowl then stir in beef and potatoes; refrigerate until flavors have fully melded.
Before grilling, rinse and pat dry the steaks. Heat a grill rack over medium-high heat; cook steaks 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium rare or until desired level of doneness is reached.
Meanwhile, grill the potatoes until golden and tender on both sides, about 3 to 5 minutes per side. Finally, serve the steaks and potatoes over the salad for a meal that’s sure to wow guests!
Serve your steaks with a side of grilled pineapple rice for a summery touch. This dish takes only 30 minutes to make and will quickly become one of your go-to recipes.
This recipe is also an ideal way to use up leftover cooked beef. Simply reheat in the oven or microwave for a quick meal on the go.
You can add other vegetables to this steak and potato salad for a nutritious twist. Red and green bell peppers would be delicious additions! This meal is low in calories but packed full of essential vitamins and minerals.
This delicious and easy dish can be prepared for your family any time of the year! So why not give it a try this Father’s Day or any other time you feel the need to treat yourself to something special?
