Recipe: Salted Baked Potatoes And Broccoli With Garlic

This is a super simple meal but one that is oh so good. I always love getting baked potatoes when we go out to eat because they’re usually rolled in salt, but I’ve never thought to figure out how to do that at home until now. I will never, ever bake potatoes any other way again.

After you scrub your potatoes, dab them just slightly in canola oil, and rub the oil all over the potatoes. Then, roll the potatoes in sea salt. When you put them in the oven, don’t wrap them in foil. They will come out nice and crispy.

For a vegetable, I used the broccoli from my Farmers Market Basket and sauted it with garlic. The garlic burned (I still haven’t figured out the trick — if there is one — to saute both and not burn the garlic), but that’s how we like it. It was SO yummy. I baked Morningstar Farms Buffalo Wings for protein, and we had a delicious, simple meal.

Salty Baked Potatoes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Scrub baked potatoes and pierce with fork. Dab them in canola oil, and rub oil all over. Roll in sea salt. Place in oven, and bake for one hour.

Garlic Broccoli
Dice 5-6 cloves of garlic, and break apart one head of broccoli. Saute garlic in pan to release flavor, and then add broccoli. Saute together for 5-6 minutes.
