A few months ago, I bought the cookbook Happy Herbivore Abroad.  I bought the Kindle version at the link I put here; I do not get kickbacks, just wanted you to have the chance to look at this book.  This week I made the Paella recipe--fabulous!  I have been eating the cold leftovers for lunches at work this week.  This recipe uses fire-roasted tomatoes, which really adds a nice depth to the entire flavor.  The top picture shows the vegetables sauteing in water instead of oil.

Healthy, Inexpensive Dinner

Nothing fancy here for dinner tonight, just HUGE russet potatoes, baked, and a pan full of asparagus and Brussels sprouts.  The veggies have not been roasted yet in the picture and they looked so good when they came out that we ate everything before I remembered to grab the camera.  It was so good!  I put them into a 400-degree F oven for about 30 minutes.  The asparagus was fresh and the sprouts were frozen, but everything was ready when I took it out.

The potatoes were served with brown gravy or green chile sauce, whichever a person wanted.
