Transitional Recipe: Mixed Oven Roasted Potatoes (+Bonus!)

Dear friendular types!

Here's what I got goin' right now. Thought I'd write it down, you know, on account of I'm a writer and all :-)

Sweet potatoes, white potatoes, red potatoes, onion, onion powdohr, fresh garlic (lots!), one bunch of fresh curly parsley, chopped, generous drizzle of EVOO. Mixed/tossed, and put in pre-heated 400 degree oven at 30 minutes or less (keep an eyeball or two on them).

And yes, this is NOT a raw recipe, but whether transitioning to a raw foods diet and lifestyle, or just incorporating more of the Living Plants into your life, ya still gotta eat, and sometimes if we're not careful, we end up grabbing what's convenient instead of being more selective. 

Preparing this was a delightful experience, and I invite you to try it too! (You select your quantities, based on your needs. I live with a family (my host family) of 5 - total of 3 adults and 2 youthlettes. And I'm rather fond of leftovers. So the quantities were, um, how-you-say - "Healthy". Ta!

  2. I forgot to say that the potatoes should be sliced thinly. Also that this makes the whole house smell delicious, as this dish truly is, even without the salt!
