Turkey Kielbasa with Seasoned Broccolini and Baby Potatoes


Bon appétit! That's all that needs to be said about this vibrant and delicious dish!


- 1 small bunch of broccolini, trimmed
- 6 to 8 baby potatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 1 1/2 to 2 cups Turkey kielbasa, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 1 cup chopped tomatoes
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
- 2 Tbs olive oil
- torn fresh parsley 

I quickly blanched (see note below about blanch cooking) the broccolini in boiling water for about a minute and then removed to a bowl. I did not add it to ice water after, because I did not want to stop the cooking process just yet.

Add the potatoes to a microwavable bowl and microwave for about 5 to 7 minutes, until tender.

On a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil, add broccolini, cooked potatoes, tomatoes, kielbasa, seasonings, and olive oil.

Turn on broiler and when hot and ready, place baking sheet in oven to broil for about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove, add fresh parsley, and enjoy! A very simple recipe made simpler by microwaving the potatoes beforehand. 

(*Blanching is a cooking process in which a food, usually a vegetable or fruit, is scalded in boiling water, removed after a brief, timed interval, and finally plunged into iced water or placed under cold running water (shocking or refreshing) to halt the cooking process.)
