Hearty Vegan Spanish Potatoes

Hearty Vegan Spanish Potatoes

This is such a new and interesting way to jazz up your potatoes. Saffron-laced yellow potatoes roasted with a paste of garlic, almonds and fried bread. So flavorful and completely unique.Ingredients

1 t olive oil (for greasing)

3 T olive oil, divided

2 lb. small yellow potatoes, scrubbed and halved

Sea or kosher salt

Ground black pepper

2 pinches (1/2 to 1 t) saffron threads

2 large peeled garlic cloves

½ C sliced, slivered, or coarsely chopped almonds, without brown skins

1½ C torn 1 inch pieces of hearty white bread, with crust (1 large slice)

1 t smoked paprika (or regular, see notes)

1⅔ C boiling water

1 T finely chopped fresh parsley (optional)

Make It…

Apply a thin coat of olive oil to a 9″ glass pie plate (or similar sized baking dish). Spread the potatoes evenly in the dish. Sprinkle generously with salt, pepper, and saffron, breaking up the longer saffron threads as you do so.

Preheat oven to 375 (F).

In a small skillet (I used nonstick), heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium until very hot. Add garlic cloves and almonds, and fry for a few minutes (depending on the oil temperature) until golden. Carefully remove to the bowl of a food processor. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in the same skillet until very hot, then add bread pieces. Fry, as they sizzle, until they turn golden and begin to crisp. Remove promptly to the food processor. Add paprika, salt, pepper, and a splash of the boiling water to food processor and let cool for a couple minutes with the lid off. Grind until a coarse paste forms, adding more water if very dry. Distribute the bread mixture evenly over the potatoes.

Pour remaining boiling water (it’s okay if it’s slightly cooled) slowly over the potatoes, so the bread mixture isn’t disturbed too much. Place on a rimmed baking tray, cover tightly with foil, and bake 45 minutes. Remove from oven and gently stir, now incorporating the bread mixture throughout the dish. Cover again with the foil (loosely is fine) and return to the oven for about 20 minutes, until the potatoes are tender when pierced with the tip of a paring knife. If desired, preheat the broiler and move an oven rack near it, uncover the dish, and broil for a few minutes to further brown and crisp the top.

Let stand a few minutes (or more) before serving. The bread will continue to absorb any excess water, forming a gravy-like sauce surrounding the potatoes. For color, top with parsley before serving.

Notes…

To substitute larger potatoes, cut them into 1 to 2 inch uniform pieces.

Yes, saffron is spendy. I’d argue that it’s worth it, but if you want to leave it out, make sure you’re using smoked paprika, not the “regular” variety.

If you don’t have a tea kettle or small saucepan, boil water in the microwave in a liquid measuring cup.

The dish does very well when prepared in advance! Fully cook or cook for the first 45 minutes. Bring the refrigerated dish to room temperature, reheating in a 300 degree oven if previously fully cooked, or finishing as prescribed in the recipe if baked for only the first 45 minutes.

Enjoy!

What is Collagen?

I’ve always wondered what collagen REALLY is and this picture explains it! I learned that Type 1 collagen (which is in the collagen elixir I’m taking) specifically replenishes the collagen, strengthens hair, skin, nails and bones! Without it, our skin becomes dry, saggy and wrinkled. It’s nutrition for my SKIN! Who else learned something new?

Knowledge is power!!! 🙌🏼

So many questions regarding our Collagen Elixir… Here are a few of the stand out points:

-Collagen is the most abundant macro in our body!

-Collagen is the glue that binds us together. As we age, it isn’t as efficient and doesn’t work as well. Think droop and sag and unhealthy joints

-10 years of research and 200 scientists involved in making our Collagen Elixir!-Ours is Type 1 marine collagen (vs. type 2 collagen found in a lot of competitor products like bovine, chicken, pork). Marine collagen is laid out more like human collagen.

-Type 1 collagen is more effective in beauty boosting benefits-Marine collagen is 1.5X more bioavailable than other collagen-Supplements our body with the basic building blocks of what our body needs to make its own collagen and make new collagen

-Ours contains 5000mg or 5g of marine collagen harvested onsite in a sustainable fishery on the Norwegian coast

-Double Nutri Technology. Bioavailable emulsification followed by encapsulation (smaller than blood cells). Stable and secure

-Also contains stable Vitamin C, zinc, and biotin. Vitamins needed for collagen synthesis and antioxidants-Contains other fruits and botanicals rich in antioxidants to preserve the collagen we already have

-Vitamin C included making the collagen 133% more bioavailable and extended out over 8 hours

-Packaged in individual dosage, sustainable, glass packaging. Seals in freshness and prevents any gas exchange. Maintains premium quality WITHOUT preservatives.

-Efficacious and bioavailable AND doesn’t contain any preservatives

-Our collagen is harvested onsite. This is in contrast to most competitors—often, where the animals reside and where the collagen is harvested is thousands of miles and months apart.

-Premium glass packaging sealed in 0.15 seconds to prevent oxidationWho is excited? Message me if you’re ready to get your glow on and pre order TODAY!!

Just some side effects:

Thicker fuller hair, new hair growth, you know those bags under your eyes…. diminished or lighten, skin blemishes gone or smoothed out, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles (without botox, can I get an AMEN 🙌🏻), fuller lips (without injections) 👄, healthier, glowing skin overall ….

Pickled Red Onions

Pickled Red Onions

These are super easy to make, and the lime juice in the brine adds a citrusy brightness to whatever you put them on.

MAKES ABOUT 1 CUP

½ red onion, thinly sliced on a mandoline

juice of 2 limes

¼ cup red wine vinegar

¼ teaspoon salt

1. Combine all ingredients and let sit for at least 15 minutes. These will keep for a few days in the fridge and continue to get flavorful and pickle-y as they sit.

Enjoy!
