I’m a big fan of what I call SINGLE POT DINNERS. These are things you whip up by seeing what you have in the refrigerator, and inventing something new. Here’s one, perfect for 3 people, that was very much enjoyed.
Linguicia and Potato Single Pot Dinner
- 1 fresh linguica (portugese sausage)
- 2 yukon gold potatoes
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 cloves sliced garlic
- 1/2 medium onion sliced thin
- 6 leaves of chard (I used 2 leaves of collards too)
- 3 tbsp water
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- salt and pepper to taste
Slice linquica in half and grill (I use a grill pan) to give grill marks and remove some fat. Cut in 1-inch chunks and set aside.
Microwave potatoes and cut in 1-inch cubes.
Put olive oil, garlic, onion, linguica and potatoes in cast iron skillet over medium heat. Leave it alone so garlic and onion can soften in pan.
Stir to mix flavors. Lower heat to medium-low, add greens, water, and lemon juice.
Cover until greens begin to steam.
Stir into the rest of the dish and cover until greens are tender (about 5 minutes).
Add salt and pepper.
