Happy Monday, I hope you had a great weekend! I spent most of it trying to finish up some last minute Christmas shopping. I still have a little more to accomplish, but thank goodness for Amazon because another snowstorm hit us last night. So, I plan to do the rest of my shopping in the comfort of my own home (in my PJ’s with a cup of coffee)! Before I get knee deep in holiday shopping, I want to share this super easy and delicious side dish recipe I made over the weekend: Roasted Fingerling Potatoes & Brussels Sprouts with Rosemary. It’s such a simple dish, but it is so tasty that it would be a great side for Christmas dinner.
I am a huge fan of roasting vegetables as it is so easy to do. The slight crispiness and caramelization that occurs through roasting them brings out a delicious flavor. It does this by drawing out their natural sweetness. One of my favorite veggies to roast is the potato!
Health Benefits of Potatoes
Potatoes are a good source of vitamins A, B6, and C. As an athlete, I love eating potatoes to fuel my body with carbohydrate and potassium. Did you know that one medium skin-on baked potato contains more potassium than a banana? Check out this great recipe featuring the beloved potato:
