Potatoes & Sweet Potatoes Pan Fried

Spring and summer may have been late in coming this year but that means good news for farm goers this fall. Berries are still plentiful, apples are in good supply and the new potatoes are scrumptious!

I think what I love most about potatoes is their versatility. They are great in salads, as a side dish and there are so many delicious and diverse ways to prepare them. Combining them with sweet potatoes is now one of my favorite!

Potatoes Provide Important Nutrients!

  • Just 110 calories.
  • No fat, sodium or cholesterol.
  • Nearly half your daily value of vitamin C.
  • More potassium than a banana.
  • A good source of vitamin B6.
  • Fiber, magnesium and antioxidants.
  • Resistant starch.

This easy dish comes together in just 30 minutes and is great for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack. The addition of chipotle offers a mild but earthy taste that it is a perfect complement to the potatoes.

Vegan Asparagus Soup

Vegan Asparagus Soup is a fresh and easy way to take advantage of your local farm fresh produce.  The season is short so make the most of it!  Make a double batch because it freezes easily and you can savor it throughout the summer.

You’re going to love the deep flavors in this vegan soup!  Using potatoes, celery and garlic along with oregano, basil and pepper allows the earthy, salty flavors of asparagus to shine.

We now have Pick Your Own Asparagus at the farm!  The kids love the wagon rides and learning about our healthy foods that grow from the earth.

3 Reasons Vegan Asparagus Soup Should Be On Your Menu:

  • Asparagus is a nutrient-packed vegetable. It is a very good source of fiber, folate, vitamins A, C, E and K, as well as chromium, a trace mineral that enhances the ability of insulin to transport glucose from the bloodstream into cells. That’s good news if you’re watching your blood sugar.
  • This herbaceous plant—along with avocado, kale and Brussels sprouts—is a particularly rich source of glutathione, a detoxifying compound that helps break down carcinogens and other harmful compounds like free radicals.
  • It’s one of the top ranked fruits and vegetables for its ability to neutralize cell-damaging free radicals. This may help slow the aging process and reduce inflammation.

Calories: 109kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
