When I’ve worked outside most of the day often I want something quick and easy, but healthy for supper. Most people know about roasted vegetables and have probably experimented like I have.

These are dishes I fix in the microwave. First I zap the onions for a minute or two. Then I put in the potatoes mixed with a little olive oil. When they are almost tender I added the spinach from the garden, and some grape tomatoes.

The one above has added carrots, asparagus and parsley. Sometimes I add pepperoni, or any other leftover meat that is available. These also make a quick and colorful side dish for a meal with guest.

This Jalapeño Corn Chowder can use corn from the garden, or frozen. It’s another delicious use for cilantro besides salsa. When I made it I didn’t have some of the ingredients. Instead of Feta cheese I used cheddar, and didn’t have any roasted red pepper. I also used a hand blender for all the corn and chicken stock. It was delicious and took very little time to fix.

  1. Tried the soup but substituted shrimp for chicken..excellent! Looking forward to more of the same.

  3. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the
    book in it or something. I think that you can do
    with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this
    is great blog. A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back.
