Early on in my journey, I watched the Engine 2 Diet Kitchen Rescue which features Rip Esselstyn helping out two families as they transition to a plant-strong lifestyle. There are several awesome recipes that are in the movie, but one caught my eye: the roasted potatoes. It sounds so simple, right? I like simple—I was not an amazing cook at first and I didn't want to complicate things!
I soon bought a bag of baby Dutch yellow potatoes and made up my own recipe. Since I cut out oils from my diet, there was no reason to slather on olive oil as I might have before my lifestyle change. Instead, I went ahead and used vegetable broth to toss these potatoes with the seasonings. The results were fabulous. Did I mention that this is super easy and takes less than 10 minutes to prep? If I'm ever stuck on what to make for a side dish one night, this is an easy fix.
