If you’re not in the habit of eating fresh produce, sometimes it requires time (and side ingredients) in order to acquire a taste.
Or maybe you just don’t feel like steaming broccoli florets or making a salad. Here are a few relish-able “treats” that provide nourishment and great taste.
1. Sweet Potato Fries:
Peel and cut two large potatoes, slicing to desired thickness. Rub with EVOO, sea salt, garlic powder, and/or fresh herbs. Bake on a sheet pan in a 450-degree oven for 30 minutes, turning the fries over halfway through.
In a food processor, mix a pound of garbanzo beans, ¼ cup EVOO, fresh lemon juice, crushed garlic, and ½ teaspoon paprika. (Feeling adventurous? Add in some roasted red pepper or sun dried tomatoes.)
3. Zucchini Pasta:
Using a veggie peeler, slice zucchini into spaghetti-resembling strips. Boil. Strain, and toss in marinara or pesto. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and buon apetito!
