Veggie Potato Boats

Veggie Potato Boats Healthy Solutions Serves:  A Lot Featured Platinum Cookware: 12 Quart and Large Skillet This is a fun meal to prepare with your children.  Your imagination is all that is needed.  You pick what ingredients you place in the boats. To start, take the Platinum 12 Quart Roaster with cover and place 22-23 medium potatoes in the roaster (washed and scrubbed) and place ¼ cup water in with the potatoes.  Cover the 12 quart, turn your stove on to medium temperature.  When the TempAlert Knob reads 90 C, turn your heat to 2 and set your timer for 50 – 60 minutes (depends on the size of potatoes you are using, the bigger the potatoes, the more time needed).  Text potatoes by sticking them with a knife.  The knife will easily go in without resistance when potatoes are done. In the Platinum Large Skillet place those veggies (without water of course) that your family likes and cover.  Turn your stove to medium and when the TempAlert Knob reads 80 C, turn to low and set you timer for 12-15 minutes.  The more color in your veggies the better.  Kids like color.  You might want to start the veggies about 30 minutes into the cooking of the potatoes so they are done at the same time. Once the potatoes are done, remove and slice off 1/3 of the potato (lying on its side) and scoop out the large portion of the potato, leaving about ¼ inch of potato in the peel.   Place your chopped veggie mixture into the potato and serve.  The 1/3 of the potato you cut offf, save,...

Grilling Plantain Bananas With No Oil!

PLANTAINS! What is that big banana? It looks really rugged, not very appetizing and over ripe. Displayed in the fruit area next to the regular bananas, why would anybody buy that old looking thing? Wow! What a Treat! We were introduced to the Plantain Banana by Q and Elvia A. They purchased the Platinum Cookware and just LOVE IT. They shared this recipe with us and I can’t get enough Plantains. They are sweet, firm and really, really good. The old way to prepare them was frying them in oil.  The new way…grilling them in the Platinum Grill Pan with no oil!. No More harmful deep fried oils clogging up the heart. It’s More Heart Healthy! Here are the grilling instructions: Plantains in the Platinum Grill Pan Healthy Solutions Plantains are ready to grill when they have turned dark brown. The yellow ones have not yet reached the sweetness we’re looking for. If you have purchased yellow looking plantains keep then on your kitchen counter until they have reached ripe perfection. Heat the grill pan on medium heat with the lid on. Open a fully ripe plantain by removing the peel and slice on the diagonal 1/2 cm thick slices. Lay out on the cutting board and spray each slice with a bit of coconut oil spray. When temperature reads 50C on the TempAlert Knob, place the slices, sprayed side down in the grill pan. Replace the lid and leave it 10 minutes. If the temperature hovers at 80 C that is perfect. If it starts to pass 80 remove the lid and turn the slices over. They should show some...

Grilled Potatoes in the Platinum Grill Pan

Grilled Potatoes in the Platinum Grill Pan Featured Platinum Pan: This is a great dinner or side dish anytime during the year with very little prep time. Preheat the Platinum Grill Pan to 50 Celsius on medium heat.  While the pan is heating, wash and scrub the potatoes, slice in half then place cut potatoes in a bowl of water for about 5 minutes.  Place potatoes (cut side down) on paper towels to dry.  Place potatoes face down in the Grill Pan, cover and set your timer for 35 minutes.  When done, the potatoes are perfectly grilled, soft insides but the grilled areas are crisp.  Call your family to the table and place your favorite topping on the potato or sprinkle olive oil on the cut side and add Spike or 21 Salute from Trader Joes. Explanation about the TempAlert being higher than 50 Celsius, When I was washing the potatoes I saw a Cottontail rabbit enjoying some fresh produce in my garden so I went out of chase it off and by the time I returned, the temperature was up to 70 Celsius.  It still worked fine, the potatoes were fabulous. Next time, we will show you how easy it is to grill rabbit in the grill pan… Just kidding, it ran off into the neighbor’s yard.      ...
