Creamy Rice with Salmon

I got this rice with salmon (arroz con salmon) recipe from a food blog written by a Columbian woman.  I’m so sorry I’ve lost track of the url of that web site but I made a lot of changes to the recipe anyway, so it barely resembles the original.

I removed several ingredients, changed several others, and used leftovers to compile the dish instead of creating it from scratch.  It was surprisingly good!  I served it with sautéed beet greens but I recommend choosing a side veggie that’s more neutral in flavor, like broccoli or green beans.  The beet greens were good but the strong flavor overpowered the more subtle taste of the rice dish.

Healthier French Fries

I love both regular french fries and sweet potato fries, so I created this recipe for healthier french fries to make both at the same time without deep frying.

I used my Breville Oven which has an air fryer, but if you don’t have an air fryer you can use a roasting pan with a wire rack in it. Convection heat is best because it gives the fries more even crispness.

The trick is to start at a lower heat to cook the potatoes, then end on a higher heat to crisp up the outside. Continue reading “Healthier French Fries”

Quick Sautéed Kale and Carrots

This is the easiest way (IMO) to sauté kale so it’s not completely boring. Since kale can be somewhat bitter we add sweet veggies like carrots and onions to balance the flavors. Feel free to swap the carrots with parsnips, yellow or red bell peppers, or even red cabbage if you like.

Serves: 2 people with a bit left over
Hand on time: 10 minutes
Total time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp olive or coconut oil
  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 medium to large carrot
  • 1/4 C chopped onion (optional)
  • salt and pepper
