Wow friends, do I have a treat for you tonight!!!
This simple dinner turned out to be one of the most delicious and flavorful ones that I’ve had in a while… and I can’t wait to share 🙂
On the menu tonight:
- Farmer’s market grass-fed burgers w/ onion relish
- Roasted garlic purple potatoes!
- Okra “fries”
Okay before we get to the crazy colorful purple taters, let’s go over the burger recipe:
- 1 lb. grass-fed ground beef
- 3 tblsp onion relish (you’ve seen this before!)
- generous tblsp worcestershire
- generous tblsp Frank’s hot sauce
- black pepper
- dash sea salt
Combine the ingredients and form into patties, I made 5.
Cook stove top (rainy night = no grill action!) until done.
Nope, not there yet….
That’s more like it 😉
Now onto the purple potatoes!
I picked these up from my favorite farmer at the market last weekend and couldn’t wait to try them!
Many of us are familiar with the antioxidant benefits of blueberries… well these potatoes pack that same kind of antioxidant punch! 😀
Not to mention being absolutely gaw-geous!
** gosh if only I had a super-sweet camera you could really see how gorgeous these were! **
I simple thick slice and a stir with the following:
- 1 tblsp olive oil
- 1 large clove garlic, minced
- black pepper
- sea salt
And onto a pan and into a the oven they go. I was cooking okra fries at the same time so here’s how long/what temps I did the taters: 350F for 20 minutes, crank up to 375F for 15 minutes then up to 400F (when the okra fries went in) for the last 20 minutes.
If I wasn’t doing the okra “fries” at the same time I would have just roasted at 375F for 40-50 minutes…
You want them to get a nice browned color, mmmm!
So now it’s time to serve it all up…
Such a colorful dinner! 🙂
But seriously, even more than colorful… absolutely super delicious!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Check out how the purple potatoes got this gorgeous “crust” and were soft/tender on the inside!
Like a warm semi-soft potato chip with a sweet garlic flavor… holy wow these were amazinggggggggggggg!
I know what I’ll be buying again next weekend at the market….!
The burgers and okra fries weren’t too shabby themselves either 😉
Coupled with the shrimp BLT I had for lunch at Delux today, this was a superior day of eats I must say.
And to top it all off, tomorrow is Thursday which means we are that much closer to the weekend 🙂
I’ll take it – have a great night everyone!
