Garlic Dill Sweet Potato Wedges

Snack Attack: Garlic Dill Sweet Potato Wedges
Prep time
30 mins
Cook time
30 mins
Total time
1 hour
Serves: 4-6
Ingredients
  • 3 sweet potatoes
  • ¼ cup duck fat, melted (or other oil such as olive oil, coconut oil, etc.)
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon paprika
  • 3-4 tablespoons fresh dill, minced
Instructions
  1. Cut sweet potatoes in half lengthwise, the cut each half into 4-5 wedges.
  2. Place wedges in a bowl, cover with water and add ice, about 2 cups worth. Let wedges sit in ice for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat over to 450 degrees.
  4. Remove wedges from water and pat dry.
  5. Place wedges back into a large, dry bowl. Add melted fat, garlic powder, salt, and paprika. Toss wedges to coat.
  6. Place wedges on a cooling rack on top of a baking sheet to help cook on both sides (if you don’t have a cooling rack, just cook on parchment paper lined baking sheet and flip half way through cooking).
  7. Bake wedges for 30-35 minutes until cooked through and browned.
  8. After cooked, let cool for 5 minutes then toss wedges in the bowl with fresh dill. I used the same bowl that I had first tossed the wedges in with oil, the oil helps coat the wedges a little more and keep the dill sticking to the wedges.
  9. NOW EAT THEM. Duh. They are delicious.

Roast, Bean, and Kale Soup

http://mobile.eatingwell.com/recipes/pork_white_bean_kale_soup.html

I made this recipe with leftover Balsamic beef roast that I had in the freezer. I did not care for the smoked flavor of the paprika. Next time I would leave that out. I had to add some half and half and some vinegar to try and get rid of that smoky flavor. Below is the recipe for the balsamic roast beef.

Egg Muffin Frittatas

I made these today and they were wonderful! A nice addition to change up breakfast. I had mushrooms, tomatoes, kale, and dices onions in my fridge so i threw all that in. I added some about 1/2 TBS sea salt and 1 tsp garlic powder. And I had the whole wheat quinoa left over from dinner the other night so I was excited to find a new use for it.

Lolly’s Cornbread

Rough estimate…1/3 cup cornmeal, 1/4 cup almond flour or a little less, 1/2 tbsp melted butter, a little sea salt, just enough water to make it like pancake consistency.
