Easy Herb-Roasted Chicken With Roasted Veggies
Sweet and Sour Pork Chops
Below is a recipe I did try and enjoyed.
Mushroom and Spinach Quiche With Potato Crust
Adapted from Cook Yourself Thin
Ingredients Purchased at Safeway, Best Way, and Costco.
1/2 pound Russet potatoes (I would try Yukon Gold if you have it), peeled and shredded ($1.29 per pound)
3 1/4 teaspoons olive oil (free from previous purchase)
1/2 teaspoon salt (free from previous purchase)
1/2 teaspoon pepper (free from previous purchase)
1/2 a medium onion, sliced ($0.29 per lb)
4 ounces white mushrooms, sliced ($2 per box)
1/2 cup of red peppers, sliced ($2.19 per lb)
1/4 cup of green peppers, sliced ($0.69 each)
5-ounce bag baby spinach ($1.25 per bag)
3 large eggs ($1.99 per dozen)
1 cup skim milk (free - stolen from roommate's stash)
2 ounces Feta Cheese ($3.49 per lb)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Lightly grease a 9-inch glass, metal, or ceramic pie dish with 1 teaspoon oil. Toss potatoes with 1 teaspoon oil and 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Press into an even layer in pie dish, up the sides like a crust. Bake until golden brown at the edges and dry, about 20 minutes. Let cool.
Lower the oven to 325 degrees. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large skillet, preferably nonstick, over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened and golden, about 5 minutes. Add remaining teaspoon oil and mushrooms, peppers and cook, stirring, until vegetables release their liquid and most of the liquid evaporates, about 8 minutes. Add spinach and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper, and cook, stirring, just until spinach wilts, about 30 seconds. Let cool slightly.
Whisk together eggs, milk and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper. Spread the vegetable mixture in an even layer in the pie dish, and top with an even layer of the cheese. Carefully pour in egg mixture. Bake until firm around the edges but still wobbly in the center, about 25 minutes.
Let cool, and serve warm or at room temperature.
The entire dish should cost you $14 or less and it serves 8 so each portion would be about $1.75. Served with a nice side salad would make for a great lunch.
