Can healthy clean eating recipes taste really delicious too?
I know the answer is yes, absolutely, and for my proof, here is exhibit A: cheesy broccoli skillet potatoes.
These warm skillet potatoes, with a creamy cheddar sauce, are savory, flavorful comfort food at its best.
This is a dish that’s scrumptious and satisfying enough to please every person at the table.
But with all of the fresh, whole ingredients – like white potatoes, broccoli, onion, and olive oil – these skillet potatoes are also filled with plenty of healthy nutrients, including (per serving):
- detoxifying fiber (15%)
- fat-burning calcium (17%)
- immunity-boosting vitamin C (95%)
- skin-smoothing vitamin A (9%)
- and potassium (19% DV)
In order to pull off the perfect cheesy broccoli skillet potatoes, here are a few helpful tips:
Begin by grabbing a large saute pan and cooking up some onion and garlic in olive oil until they’re nicely softened.
They really add to the savory flavor of this dish.
Then add plenty of cubed white potatoes.
No need to spend time peeling the potatoes either.
White potatoes have a light, soft skin you’ll hardly notice after they’re cooked.
And, lots of their nutrition lies in the skin.
Be sure to stir the potatoes often with a wooden spoon to keep them from sticking to the pan.
If the potatoes do begin to stick, just add a bit of vegetable broth.
When the potatoes are nearly tender, toss in some frozen chopped broccoli florets.
(Just be sure to thaw the broccoli first).
When the veggies are cooked and ready to serve, add plenty of shredded organic cheddar cheese.
(Use a sharp cheddar for the most flavor.)
Then add a splash of vegetable broth and stir it all up to create a rich and creamy cheddar sauce.
These cheesy broccoli skillet potatoes work great as a side dish or, served with soup or salad, as a light meatless meal.
They’re so richly flavorful, hearty, and indulgent-tasting.
But’s it’s nice to know this dish is filled with nutrient-rich, clean ingredients too!
