I'm keeping up my Sunday cooking for the week; I made sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, and a few other things:
- Portabella mushrooms
- Olive Oil
- Red wine
- 2 cloves garlic
- Soy Sauce
- Balsamic Vinegar
1) Preheat oven to 400
2) Clean mushrooms (remove stems)
4) Marinate the portabellas in the dish, upside down for 15 minutes.
These are great cold or hot - I recommend sautéing spinach or another green and putting that over the mushroom cap with some goat cheese. You can also slice these up and eat with other grilled veggies, or as a side dish for a dinner. The possibilities are endless.
Broccoli with Raisins and Bacon
Growing up, I remember this very Southern salad recipe - it's basically broccoli, mayo, raisins, and bacon. Great tasted, but I can feel myself getting fat thinking about that. Instead, I decided to roast some broccoli and try to get some of the same flavors into the recipe. I wound up with a recipe that blew my mind. I cannot recommend this enough.
- coconut oil
- cayenne pepper
- red pepper flakes
- golden raisins
1) Chop broccoli
2) Toss with coconut oil, cayenne pepper, salt, and some cinnamon
3) Bake broccoli on 400 on a baking sheet for 15 minutes
4) Microwave 4-5 pieces of bacon, until crispy (6 minutes)
5) Toss some coconut oil into a skillet and melt, then add about a half cup of chopped onions, saute.
6) Once the onion is sautéed, add the raisins, 2 cloves of garlic, minced, salt, red pepper flakes
7) Add the raisin mix to the broccoli and salt/cayenne pepper as needed.
I also spent some time sauteing some greens - if you don't know how to saute greens, here's your step by step:
1) Heat up a tiny bit of olive oil
2) Add a little garlic
3) Add chopped greens and cover
After all the cooking today, here's how I made out:
