Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus with Greek Dill Yogurt

Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus

Currently, the Coronavirus has taken over the world and most of us are on quarantine. Being creative and resourceful in the kitchen is vital right now I am here to bring you simple recipes. My new Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus with Greek Dill Yogurt is here to save the day. This recipe calls for everyday ingredients that you probably have in your pantry and freezer/fridge right now.

Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus

This Roasted Potato and Asparagus recipe only includes 7 ingredients, not including salt/pepper. When I build simple recipes, I never include these ingredients in the 6 because most people always have this on hand. Not only does it requires minimal ingredients, but you only need a baking sheet to cook. Healthy and easy is my kind of recipe.

Notice that cute little hand reaching for a potato? That is my almost 2 year old, Eleanor grabbing a taste during my shoot. She kept licking all the Greek yogurt dressing off each potato, haha. Simply precious!

Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus

What you will need for this recipe:

  • Baby Potatoes
  • Asparagus
  • Bacon or Turkey Bacon
  • Lemon Juice
  • Salt/Pepper
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Fresh or Dried Dill
  • Chicken Apple Sausage

The Greek Dill Yogurt really gives this dish so much life. It adds a great layer of tangy and tart. It is for sure game changer. However, I know that some of you may not like Greek yogurt so you can sub either homemade mayo (dairy free option) or sour cream for the sauce.

What to serve with this Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus Dish:

This dish can serve as a main course if you are low on ingredients and need something hearty. This dish will certainly fill you up without any additional protein option. However, if you are wanting to serve this as more of a side dish instead of a main, then below are a few ideas:

  • Pork Chops (Throw some pork chops on a sheet pan and cook along with the asparagus and potatoes). Super easy and quick meal!
  • Steak
  • Grilled Chicken Breast
  • Ribs
  • Poached Eggs

  • If you only have frozen asparagus, feel free to take it through the same process and add to the pan frozen. it made need an additional 5 minutes or so of roasting.
  • To make this vegan or vegetarian simply remove the bacon and yogurt. For the dressing use a vegan mayo.

(AD) With the back-to-school season right around the corner, life can get pretty busy. I'm here to help with a quick and easy lunchbox idea featuring @StarKistCharlie Hot Buffalo Style Tuna Creation Pouch. If you are not a fan of spicy, don't fear, these little pouches come in 23+ varieties and you can find them in the tuna aisle in the grocery store or online. Most of the pouches have 10g+ lean protein per single-serve pouch and 110 calories or less. I love serving these with my favorite fruits and veggies to make them a complete lunch or snack. These pouches are also great for a post-workout protein-filled snack. Just tear it open and eat straight from the pouch. #EverydayGoals

✨Pickle Boats✨
2 @StarKistCharlie Hot Buffalo Style Tuna Creation Pouches
2 tablespoons mayo
2 tablespoons red onion chopped
2 large pickles, sliced lengthwise 

Using a spoon, scoop out the seeds to create boats. Mix the tuna together with the mayo and red onions. Fill each pickle with the tuna.

With school starting, life gets so busy and meal time can be super hectic. I’m here to help with my top favorite Costco finds that will make meal time a breeze! 

✨Aidells Chicken Apple Sausage: Cook with pepper and onions and add over rice or cauliflower rice. Too with my Chili Lime or Mac’s Awesome Sauce for extra flavor 

✨Just Bare Chicken Bread Chunks: Toss in the air fryer and serve on top of a salad, inside a tortilla or with sides such as corn, mashed potatoes or green beans.

Every year I let the girls pick out a theme for their birthday cakes and I try to make it magical. This year Eloise wanted a chocolate cake with watercolor buttercream along with pink and teal macarons. It turned out better than I imagined and Eloise absolutely love it!!!

🧁For the buttercream, I used my recipe that is located on my site. You can also find it in my profile

🍰As for the cake, I  used my box cake mix hack. This is seriously my favorite way to make a cake because it tastes straight from the bakery. See the hack below

✨Follow the box cake mix instructions but with these changes 
Tip 1 Add one more egg (or add 2 if you want it to be very rich)
Tip 2 Use melted butter instead of oil and double the amount
Tip 3 Use milk instead of water
Tip 4 if using for cupcakes fill 3/4 of cupcake liners with the mix.
✨Bake according to the box and remove it two minutes early and let them sit for a couple of minutes in the tin. ✨Remove and allow them to cool

🍓I used Bonne Maman Strawberry Jam for the middle
