This turned out to be a delicious meal that comes together in no time at all! Who says a healthy (and delicious) meal takes too much time? And amazingly enough, we even had leftovers! Leftovers are a rarity in our household…
The taster simply grilled some salmon filets and then put some BBQ sauce on it towards the end. (He also likes to get the grill marks perfect if you can’t tell) And everything about this was perfect.
I wanted to try some sort of new veggie this week and came across brocco-flower (no idea how to spell it but it is a cross between cauliflower and broccoli, and since I love broccolini I thought it would be a sure bet) It was also from a local farm and I am really making an effort to eat more local, in season foods. I decided to roast it with some shallots, olive oil and salt & pepper. I just love roasted veggies, and these were no exception. I can’t wait to make more this fall!

It was a great meal rounded out with some heirloom tomato slices (I usually drizzle with a bit of olive oil and a sprinkling of salt & pepper) and some Butternut Squash Crab bisque, also from the Whole foods and probably the best soup I’ve ever gotten from a grocery store…certainly not part of the “detox” I’m trying to go through after New Orleans, but that’s what happens when I send the taster to the meat counter…I should have known ;)
