Potato Pasta People!!!

We had some already baked potatoes in the Fridge one night and were thinking about what to cook. I will often go to my fridge and make sure I am keeping on top of what needs to be eaten and what has a longer shelf life to reduce food waste. We knew that we had to eat the Potatoes but did not want to bake them again! I thought about fried onions and then hash browns and voila! Here is a delicious comfort food dish that you will gobble up!


What you need:

Olive or Avocado Oil

Vegan Butter

4 Large Baked Idaho Potatoes (cut in half and sliced)

1-2 Onions

4-5 Cloves or Smashed Garlic


Pasta (We used Orzo but you can use any pasta you would like)

Salt and Peper and Red Pepper


What you do:

Heat up Oil and Butter in the Pan. Be generous.

Add garlic and Onions and Sauté

Once well cooked and Brown add your sliced and diced Potatoes and start frying and folding the potatoes. You want them Brown!

Meanwhile you are heating up water with Salt and Oil and you have your pasta standing by. Once the water comes to a boil – and your sautéed potatoes are cooking well – add your pasta and cook for the 10 – 12 minutes it needs.

Before you drain your pasta, you want to save a few ladles of that starchy water. That is to top off your sauce. You can also Keep your potatoes dry without the Starch water when serving.

Once you drain your pasta – put in a large bowl and add oil so nothing sticks!

Then you put your potatoes  in the bowl and mix!

Add your nut crunch, salt and pepper and enjoy!

Steamed Artichokes and

Pan Seared Asparagus!


Artichokes are packed with phytonutrients such as quercetin, rutin, gallic acid, and cynarin, all working to protect against many health risks including cancer, heart disease, liver dysfunction, high cholesterol, and diabetes.

Buy artichokes that have a little weight to them. When they are super light it means that have thin leaves and they might be a little old. I like when they are big round and when the petals are tight like a rose that has not opened yet. We can only get ‘chokes like that 1 time per year so I will settle for smaller ones just to get my fix. To cook them you need a bit of time but I like to cook them on a Sunday for the week or in the morning on a Saturday to enjoy that night!

4-6 Artichokes (Depends on how big your pot is)

5 cloves are Garlic

Bunch of Parsley


Oilive Oil

Take the Artichokes and Wash them well with cold water. Then Cut with a scissor the prickly ends of the leaves so that they are straight. Cut the end of the Stem that is a little dry looking but keep the rest! Fill a big pot of water up with fresh filtered water. Put on stove and put the heat on High! Then add the Artichokes. Squeeze a Whole Lemon. Drop in Whole Peeled cloves of Garlic! (The more the merrier! if they are not chopped they won’t get too strong!). Add 3 large table spoons of Olive Oil. Put the cover on and Boil for about 45 minutes. You might need to lower the heat a bit so they don’t boil over! The water will also go down due to the steam so keep and eye on it. After 45 minutes shut off the stove and let them sit in the hot water for as longs as possible. (Sometimes when they cool, i will store them in the fridge until the AM and this really tenderizes them) but you can also eat them that night. You can either Melt butter and olive oil and add lemon to dip and if you are vegan just add lemon! Peel each Leaf off one by one and get that meat off with the bottom of your teeth! Don’t forget the heart and the stem! The best parts – but remove the hair first when you get to the center!

Pan Seared Asparagus 

Asparagus are a good Source of Vitamin K. which is the blood clotting vitamin. They Contain Anti-inflammatory and Antioxidant Properties. They serves as a Natural Diuretic are a good source of fiber and have a high level of Vitamin B1 and Thiamine.

Nothing worse than limp dark green over boiled Asparagus! My recipe is the best!

1 Bunch of Asparagus

1 Veggie Boullion Cube

Lemon – Olive Oil – Salt and Pepper

Peeled Whole Clove Garlic

Wash the stems of the Asparagus and then break the bottoms off. usually about 1/4 inch from the bottom. Did you know that Asparagus is the only Veggie that you are allowed to eat with your hands? Once they are washed and dried in a large Skillet you want to add the Olive Oil, the Garlic and The Veggie Bouillon Cube so that you made a brown “Rue”. Once that gets cooking and nice and hot add the asparagus in a beautiful line up on the skillet so that they are spread evenly across the pan. you should hear it Sizzle! That is good! Quickly Grab a Top and cover the Skillet and it should sound like it is still sizzling. Your heat is still high. Then grab a small glass of water (Maybe about 2 ounces or less) and add it to the mix! You should hear a sizzle again! Cover it! Then Shake that Skillet back and forth so that the steam cooks the Asparagus but it also gets a little brown. Keep checking so it stays bright green. After about 2-5 minutes shut off the Heat and have a look. If you feel they need a bit more cooking cover the skillet – if they are looking good then keep the top off so that they start to cool. Add Salt and Pepper and Lemon and maybe a little chili pepper and you are in business! Enjoy!

Avocado Sammy!

Did you know that most people put meat between 2 pieces of bread? I always tell Meat eaters that Lunch is the best time to choose Veggie to get started. First of all, too much meat and Carbs can slow you down! Lunch is a fueling meal that keeps you going throughout the day. I like to eat a light lunch and here is the first and easiest of all Lunches! Add a fresh Apple – Banana and some nuts if you are still hungry!


What you need:

2 Pieces of Sour Dough Bread

Spread Generous Amount of Earth Balance Organic “Buttery” Spread

Sliced Tomato (add romain lettuce of you like)

Sliced Avocado (I like mine less ripe than over ripe)

Himalayan Salt  and Frech Ground Pepper

Squeezed Lemon


Slice Break Place to the side
