Fluffy, Soft Roasted Potatoes (oil-free)


There is nothing more delish than the perfect potato cut into bite sized pieces, topped with amazing spices and baked. I have been craving pots lately and I made some today, I posted the pic on fb and it got some cool likes. I think that I'm obsessed with potatoes because July 4th is coming up, one of my fav holidays, and I plan on making a ton of potatoes at my mom's lake house for my family. I'm going to make them exactly like I'm going to describe here and I'm going to serve with tahini sauce.

The trick to making fluffy potatoes is to boil them first and even though that takes more prep time, it's worth it. Whenever I order potatoes in restaurants, ones that are roasted, and usually rolled in oil, they are always so perfect. Soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside, perfectly spiced...NOM! Tahini sauce can be made at home but I don't do that, I buy it at Trader Joe's.

Onto the recipe! Buy some white or red potatoes or any potato that is your favorite. This recipe is oil free.

3 white potatoes
Juice from 1 lemon
1 tbsp of garlic powder
2 tsp of pepper
2 tsp of sea salt
1 tbsp of ground cumin
1 tsp of red pepper
2 tsp of dill

Wash and cut your potatoes into bite sized pieces. Boil them for 8 minutes in enough water to cover them. Drain the water and put the potato pieces back in the pot and cover or put in a bowl. Cover the potatoes in the spices and lemon juice by mixing or shaking them in the pot. Put on a cookie sheet or parchment paper and bake for 25 minutes at 400 degrees. The potatoes should be brown. Serve with tahini sauce or ketchup or anything you like!

Hope your summer is going fabulously and that you are fitting in some self care!

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!


Three Ingredient Fudgy Brownies

These brownies did not come out of my brain as they are not my recipe. I found the recipe on instagram under @lilsipper. Her account is so so cool; she makes very cool, delicious looking food, mostly desserts, using very interesting ingredients and ingredients you would not think to use. For instance, this recipe is just fruit and cocoa powder and it makes the most delicious brownies. So, if you are on instagram or Facebook, follow @lilsipper. Her Facebook is @lmLilSipper.

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!
