Healthy, Delicious, and In Season!
Here's a very easy dinner I made recently, and since it is so pretty I wanted to share it with you. Okay, I did get my iron skillet a little too hot, but we like char at my house, thank goodness!! This is a center-cut pork chop, thinly sliced, so it cooked very fast. I just flipped it in the iron skillet with some olive oil, and salt and pepper, and cooked for about three minutes on each side. Just do it on medium heat.
The asparagus, which was a great price at the grocer since it is in season right now, was roasted in the oven. Don't forget to break off the woody ends of the asparagus. Heat your oven to 400 degrees. On a sheet pan sprinkle salt, pepper and olive oil on the asparagus and stir it around until it is all coated. Layer the asparagus evenly. If your asparagus is thin, like mine was, check it after 15 minutes. For thicker pieces, cook about 20 minutes and check. Cook it until it is softened but still pretty and green. After you take it out of the oven sprinkle it with parmesan. Delicious!
The other veggie on the plate is one of my new favorites. Nope, it's not potatoes, it's diced Daikon radish, which is super healthy and super delicious. I bought this at the Buford Farmer's Market in Doraville, Georgia. Just peel it and dice it like you would a potato and boil it in salted water until tender. If anyone knows where the radishes can be bought closer to Rome, Georgia, please let me know!!
So there it is, delicious AND healthy!
