After a pretty horrific experience with rice pasta a few months ago, I thought maybe my pasta days were over since I'm been eating more gluten-free. I took a chance and bought a new corn/rice blend the other day:
I was so suspicious when I cooked it. The previous rice pasta I made just FELL apart as it was cooking. No bueno. This one was perfect!
Topped with some chicken breast cooked in tomato sauce and rosemary, and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese on top. Yum!
In other food news, I've been seriously overusing my oven lately. It's just so nice to have one after so long! EVERYTHING is being roasted, so I've made some pretty exciting healthy fries. A potato cut up and lightly sprayed with oil, salt and pepper makes yummy "fries", but it's probably one you already know about:
So here's one you probably haven't tried: okra fries!
I got this amazing bag of garden veggies from my friend this past weekend:
But I was a little stumped about what to do with the fries. I love roasted anything, so I was going to slice and roast them. But then I decided to cut them like fries, toss them in olive oil and salt, and roast them a bit longer. I even dipped them in ketchup, they were so crunchy and delicious!
Finally had a run today, it felt so great after 3 non-running days in a row! 6 miles at 9:10 average pace.
What is your favorite roasted veggie?
Broccoli! I love it so much, I could eat a whole pan of the stuff.
Crunchy or soft fries?
Crunchy and crispy all the way. The soft ones are gross!
