If you talk to or read the words of Andrew Thompson (The Spud Fit guy) you would understand how good potatoes are for you.
Andrew ate nothing but potatoes for a year in 2016.
The reason he chose potatoes is because of their overall nutritional value. Yes they even have protein!
What better way to have potatoes than with even more nutrition and flavour added. No oil or fat added.
Check out my recipe below for this delicious, nutritious and filling meal.
LOADED UP BLACK GARLIC ROASTED POTATOPrint Recipe
- 1 large unwashed potato
- 1 cup of diced onion
- 2 large mushrooms roughly sliced
- 1 cup of spinach
- 1 cup of red kidney beans
- 1/4 cup of sweet corn kernels
- 2 sprigs of fresh thyme
- 1 teaspoon of granulised black garlic
- 1/2 cup of shredded purple and white cabbage
Take the large potato and wash of excess dirt but do not peel.
Steam for 15 minutes on the stove.
Remove potato from the pot, place on a square piece of foil, cute it into quarters then grind black garlic granules all over.
Wrap the potato and place in an air fryer for 10-12 minutes on 190 degrees.
While the potato cooks, in a non-stick frypan, sweat off the diced onion until caramelised, cook the mushrooms with thyme. Also steam the spinach for a few minutes.
Once the potato is ready, place in on a plate and load up the ingredients on top in any order you wish.
I garnished with some spring onions but the idea only to me after I took the photos and by then I was hanging to tuck in.
If you don't have an air fryer, you could bake in the oven but it will take longer.
