Rooting for Potatoes

The Spud Makes A Comeback

Tasty root veggies with chicken(NewsUSA) – Forget low-carb diets and Atkins; those sweet, succulent spuds are once again finding their place among meat and vegetables at the dinner table.

To celebrate its return to center stage, Kita Roberta of Girl Carnivore is recognizing the health benefits of a plant-based diet, while still including your favorite proteins. To that end, Girl Carnivore has created a recipe that is packed with carrots, beets, kale and Idaho potatoes. Add the sweetness of maple aioli and you’ve got yourself a good-for-you meal.

Roasted Roots and Chicken
Power Bowl with Maple Aioli

• 4 Russet Idaho potatoes, chopped into 1/2-inch cubes
• 3 carrots
• 1 turnip, peeled, cut in half lengthwise, and then cut into wedges
• 1 red onion, cut into wedges
• 1 cup butternut squash, peeled and chopped
• 2 beets, rinsed, peeled, cut in half and then cut into wedges
• 4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
• Salt and pepper
• 3 sprigs fresh thyme, removed from stem
• 3 cups Swiss chard, removed from stem and chopped
• 1 garlic clove, minced
• 1 cup cooked rotisserie chicken, chopped

For the Maple Aioli

• 3 tablespoons fresh mayonnaise
• 1 tablespoon maple syrup
• 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degree F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Toss all of the vegetables in olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Arrange the vegetables in a single layer on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with thyme.
  4. Roast in the oven for 25-30 minutes, until golden and fork-tender, flipping once, halfway through.
  5. Meanwhile, heat the remaining olive oil in a skillet over medium-heat. Sauté the Swiss chard with the chopped garlic until wilted, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Whisk the mayonnaise with the maple syrup and cinnamon until combined. Spoon into a serving dish.
  7. Divide the chard evenly in serving bowls. Top with the roasted vegetables and chopped rotisserie chicken. Serve with the maple aioli on the side for dipping.
