Rosemary Bacon Root Vegetable Fries

These were pretty tasty. I made them based on a recipe for carrot fries but threw in some turnips and potatoes that I had on hand. Potatoes take a little longer to cook so I recommend par-cooking them if you do them this way (I didn’t do this). I cooked the leftovers for 20 minutes to heat them up and that extra cooking time made them much crispier.

Mexican Cauliflower Rice

This cauliflower rice adaptation was a big hit. We served this with fajitas (fajita salad for John and me) and fruit for a little dinner party. I made this with two bags of frozen rice and adjusted other ingredient portions accordingly.

Instant Pot Polenta

This turned out perfectly in the Instant Pot! I took a friend’s advice to sautee on low because it can overheat otherwise, as a note.

This Smitten Kitchen recipe proved to be a good way to use up some garden tomatoes. We served this with a simple seared salmon and a cuke tomato salad.

Pressure Cooker Pinto Beans

I was really happy with this recipe – it makes a ton, and they work as a great Mexican side dish (in our case, accompanying fish tacos) or even as the star attraction of lunch. I froze half for a later meal. These are great with a little bit of queso fresco crumbled over them.
