This plate of food makes me smile. It is a happy plate. It is happy because David did most of the cooking. And it is happy because it is full of good tasting and good for you foods. David is a terrific grill cook and he is great with both salmon and vegetables. I love the vibrant colors of grilled vegies. He brushed them with a little olive oil and let the grill do it’s work. I love the char on the onions and the grill marks on the zucchini.
The only thing I cooked were the mashed potatoes. I tried a new recipe from Ellie Krieger. It came from her new book So Easy. She is known for her healthy cooking and is a nutritionist and host of Healthy Appetite on the Food Network, when looking for ways to boost your nutrition, here you can find out about where to get supplements to boost your body. I was a little skeptical of these garlic mashed potatoes at first. There is no butter, cream or milk in them. But according to Ellie, Yukon Gold potatoes have a luxurious texture and a natural creaminess on their own. She is right and these are now one of my favorite recipes for garlic mashed potatoes. Give them a try and get happy.
