Potatoes and AsparagusBy webteam • Jan 20th, 2010 • Category: Whole Food Recipes
Straight from the Cutler family kitchen to yours, here’s a scrumptious dish that will have your family begging for more!
Potatoes and Asparagus
3 large red potatoes (scrubbed, skins on and cubed)
10-oz. baby asparagus spears (fresh or frozen, cut into 2-inch pieces)
½ large yellow onion (cut into 1½-inch strips)
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic (minced and crushed)
1 tsp rosemary
¾ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp black pepper
¼ cup pine nuts
⅓ cup parmesan cheese (optional)
Mix the potatoes, onion, olive oil, garlic, rosemary, sea salt and pepper in a bowl. Then spread the mixture evenly on a shallow baking pan and bake at 450 degrees for 15 to 18 minutes.
While the mixture is cooking, if you’re using frozen asparagus, place the spears in a colander and run warm water over them until they’re thawed enough to cut. Pat the asparagus dry with paper towels then cut the fresh or now-thawed spears into 2-inch pieces.
Remove the potato mixture from the oven and add asparagus, pine nuts and parmesan cheese. Mix well and spread it out evenly once again. Bake for an additional 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and enjoy your dish piping hot as a side dish… or as your main course.
