How Long To Cook Herb Roasted Potatoes

  1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place the diced potatoes on a baking sheet. (You may want to use more than one baking sheet depending on how many potatoes you have).
  3. Drizzle 2 Tbsp. of olive oil over the potatoes and sprinkle them with ¼ tsp. kosher salt and pepper. Toss until coated.
  4. Sprinkle 1 tsp. each of garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, and Italian seasoning over the potatoes. Toss until completely coated.
  5. Place the baking sheet(s) in the oven and roast for 24-26 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven at the halfway point and move the potatoes around with a wooden spatula. This will help prevent them from sticking.
  6. Remove the pan(s) after the potatoes have finished roasting.

If sweet potatoes are more your thing be sure to check out these BBQ Sweet Potatoes, Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash, and Savory Mashed Sweet Potatoes!

At this point the Roasted Potatoes are finished and ready to serve.

It's important to note that cooking times may vary slightly depending on the size of the potatoes and the oven used. I like to check them at the 22-minute mark and continue roasting if they are not quite finished.

The potatoes should be soft (but not mushy) and easily pierced with a fork on the inside in addition to being crispy on the outside. I recommend not over-crowding the pan as this may cause the potatoes to steam and not roast.

To avoid over-crowding the pan simply split the potatoes and all of the other ingredients between two baking sheets.

Butternut Squash Ravioli in Sage Brown Butter Sauce

Adapted from a recipe by Seattle-based food blogger Aberdeen from Aberdeen’s Kitchen, this take on butternut squash ravioli with a sage brown butter sauce is to die for. It’s savory, sweet, a little bit nutty, and gives butternut squash the spotlight it deserves!

Equipment-wise, you’ll need a stovetop to boil your ravioli, and a skillet to make your brown butter sauce.

The ingredients are as follows:

16 oz of butternut squash ravioli (See here for a recipe to make the ravioli from scratch)

1/2 C. of salted butter (I find Kerrygold tastes the best!)

1 T. fresh lemon juice (or 1/4 of a lemon wedge)

coarsely ground black pepper and sea salt to taste

Start by start by mincing your garlic and sage and boiling your raviolis. While the ravioli boils, begin melting your butter over medium heat, stirring frequently so as not to burn it. Around 3-5 minutes in, you’ll notice the butter will begin foaming up and start to turn a light golden brown. At this point you can add in your garlic and sage, continuing to stir for another 2-3 minutes until the garlic is just about cooked through (it will continue to tenderize even after its taken off heat) and the butter is a deep golden color with milky-looking flecks and a nutty aroma. Whisk in your chicken broth, olive oil, and heavy cream one by one until fully incorporated into the butter. Pour your completed sauce over your cooked ravioli and garnish with fresh lemon juice, fresh sage leaves, coarse black pepper, and sea salt to taste. (I opted for salted butter vs. unsalted and find extra salt not to be necessary, but sprinkling parmesan cheese over the top is a delicious alternative that still proves just a hint of extra savory flavor!)

Recipe: Best Veggie Sandwich Ever

One of the bloggers I met at this weekend's Foodbuzz Blogger Festival was Brittany from Eating Bird Food. She won a recipe challenge from Nature's Pride bread for this sandwich. At first glance it doesn't sound unusual. Hummus and veggies, we've all had that, right? But the hummus is white bean and basil, plus the sandwich gets amazing flavor from feta and peppadew peppers. Brittany told me she got these peppers, which are miniature and red, from the olive bar at Whole Foods. This is one of those ideal meals that is flavorful and satisfying, yet you feel good after eating it. The hummus recipe is separate and can be found on Brittany's blog.

You could of course play around with any combination of veggies you'd like, but I think the peppers and feta are essential. Enjoy!

Healthy Veggie Stuffed Hummus Sandwich (serves 1).

2 slices- 100% Whole Wheat Nature’s Pride Bread

3 slices- red onion (thinly sliced)

3- roasted peppadew peppers (sliced/chopped)

4 slices- cucumber (thinly sliced)

Sea salt and ground pepper to taste

Lay the two slices of bread out on a plate or other surface. Spread the equal amounts of hummus onto one side of both slices of bread. Layer the remaining ingredients on one slice of the bread in the order listed. Carefully top with the second slice of bread, cut the sandwich in half and enjoy! This recipe could easily be doubled, tripled or quadrupled depending on how many people you are serving.

Whole30 Meal Plan – Reintroduction, Part Deux

Okay, guys… this is it! The last week of planned Whole30 meals. After this, you are on your own. This week, we introduce two of the biggest culprits in causing inflammation – dairy and gluten. They both noticeably affect how I feel. Please pay close attention to how you feel after introducing new foods – both during that day and the two days following. Then, at least you know the consequences you may face, should you choose to include those items in your diet.

I know this process has been time-consuming with meal planning, shopping and cooking. I breathe a sigh of relief upon completion each time, too. But I hope you will integrate some of the recipes and habits you have learned on this journey into your everyday life. I hope they make you a happier and healthier person! Thanks for following along with us!

*We found some new great Whole30 compliant sausages at a local specialty market (Rollin Oats for you Tampa Bay folks). They had a couple of brands, but we tried Bilinksi’s Spinach and Garlic Chicken Sausages. They are really good. With mustard.

Shopping List & Preparation Guide – Here are the Shopping List & the Preparation Guide for the Reintroduction, Part Deux Meal Plan.

Snacks – I’m really loving the Roasted Plantain Chips from Trader Joe’s that we tried last week. We still have those and dried fruit in the house, so those and our trusty Larabars, bananas and almond butter will get us through this week. Next week, we will likely try to add in some other non-compliant snacks based on our reintroduction analysis. Popcorn or some high-quality dark chocolate, perhaps?

Citrus Herb Roasted Chicken with Carrots – I use the one from the Practical Paleo cookbook, and this one is close to that. I use lemons instead of oranges though, and make sure you use clarified butter instead of regular butter.

Fried Smashed Chicken – I put boneless, skinless chicken breasts in between plastic wrap or in a ziploc bag and smash the crap out of them with a rolling pin (cause I don’t have a meat mallet). I get out my daily frustrations until they are about 1/2 inch thick. Then I dip them in a mix of coconut flour with garlic powder, pepper and salt and fry them in coconut oil, about 3 minutes on each side. Yummy. (Adapted from Nom Nom Paleo’s Crispy Smashed Chicken.)

Best of luck to you all! Stay tuned for our first results post next week!
