Most people like fried rice. You never make it, but rather have it when you order take out at a Chinese restaurant. Today is a perfect day to make a healthy vegetable fried rice for meatless Monday! It's all about the vegetables in this dish. Farro with Roasted Vegetables (Meatless Monday) is another great dish to make for a meatless meal. Farro is very filling and healthy!
Do you have a favorite side dish for Thanksgiving? I really love all my sides but my ultimate favorite is sautéed brussels sprouts and carrots with bacon. It is a must for Thanksgiving. It's full of fall colors and tastes amazing. Brussels sprouts and carrots with bacon is perfect, since there are so many dishes to already make. You don't have to worry about using multiple pans. I love roasted vegetables but this is one of the few vegetable dishes I like to sauté.
By now you can see how much I love roasted vegetables. Adding farro to the mix makes it even better. For those nights you don't want meat. And by that I mean chicken. My husband is perfectly fine having chicken for breakfast, lunch and dinner but I get tired of it. This farro bowl is hearty and very filling. You got yourself some nice fall colors in this dish. Very halloweenish if you asked me. All I did was make some roasted vegetables and then realized the halloween colors are all in this dish! HA! In 15 minutes you have all the vegetables you need for a nutritious meal.
Did you know if there was one food you could live on for the rest of your life it would be potatoes? Potatoes essentially have all the amino acids and proteins our bodies need. However, we would have deficiencies with other vitamins. Most of us love potatoes and I'd say french fries is the most popular! My favorite potato to make at home is the baby potatoes. Why? Roasted baby potatoes are so easy to make and don't take forever to bake!
Chicken can become boring especially when you have it most days of the week. Chicken is versatile and you can serve it in so many ways. One of my go to meals is corn salsa served over grilled chicken thighs. It is simple and super tasty. If you read my blogs you may have noticed a pattern here. EASY and SIMPLE meals with TONS of flavor. That's my motto.
Let's make hash browns in 20 minutes! We can all agree not every restaurant makes good hash browns. Some make them better than others. I've ordered hash browns that look like balls of potatoes sort of mashed together! I know, not what you would expect! Hash Browns may seem a bit difficult to make but after many different ways of making them, this is my favorite way. Broiling in the oven! Easy and crispy on the outside. The perfect cozy meal to have with a side of eggs and bacon.
