Roasted pork tenderloin makes a nutritious, delicious anchor dinner that can be re-invented multiple ways.
Pork loin is a rich source of vitamins B1, B3, B6, minerals zinc, selenium, phosophorus, and potassium.
Pasture-raised pork is more nutritious than conventional pork, lower in saturated fat and higher in protein, vitamins B1, B2, zinc, copper and iron.
I generally roast this classic tenderloin with seasonal vegetables. It also pairs nicely with nutrient-dense mashed potatoes:
- Mix in sautéed mushrooms and onions
- Mix in sautéed spinach and garlic
- Mix in sautéed leeks
- Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes (half cauliflower, half potatoes)
- Puree of Three-Root Vegetables
- Sweet Potato and Butternut Squash Puree
- Nutrient-Rich Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Red Bell Pepper
