Purple Potato and Red Chard Hash

20121224-154859.jpg
Christmas Eve day brunch. After a busy weekend of visiting with friends and family we needed a hearty brunch. Thanks to our Enterprise Farm year round CSA, I was inspired to do this breakfast hash.
Par boil your diced potatoes for about 5 minutes in enough water to just cover them, adding a cup of apple cider vinegar. Meanwhile dice one large onion and about 6 big garlic cloves. I prefer a cast iron pan- heat it up, add olive oil, sauté your garlic and onion on medium heat until translucent. Add potatoes and reserve some of the liquid from cooking them. Add cumin, cayenne, salt and pepper. Stir well and cover for 5-7 minutes.
You want some crust to form on sides of potato pieces, but not so they burn or stick. If it seems too dry, spoon in reserved liquid and cover to help steam cook the potatoes. Taste- when potatoes are almost done , add your julienned red chard, stir and cover until wilted. Serve with two fried eggs on top!

Busy Times = Quick Dinners

Almond Flour Crusted Tilapia is tonight’s quick dinner.

With our two kids birthdays, Thanksgiving, Hanukah and Christmas all within a month, it’s been non-stop lately.

This dinner comes together in about 20 minutes. Any white fish filet works well.
I like the Almond flour for it’s added dose of Vitamin E, Magnesium, Protein and Iron. Not to mention the fabulous flavor and texture.

Dust fish on both sides with sea salt and pepper and then Almond flour.
Pan sear in olive oil, about 4 minutes a side, covered. Top with Sriracha Aioli.
(Sriracha and light mayo in my house)

I’m serving it tonight with some black beans and brown rice I had made up yesterday. Baby greens salad for the adults and avocado chunks for the kids.
GOYA Adobo with Cumin is my quick all purpose spice for rice and beans.
Happy Holidays! I hope to find time to post some holiday foods soon.
