Today we’re going to be making
not-so-boring boiled potatoes something that you can fix in a big
hurry you can make a really good side dish for your family you want to begin with red or yellow one of the waxy varieties of potatoes. these are different from what we call russet
potatoes in that russets tend to be a little more or
merely and dry when cooked whereas these are waxy and tend to hold
their shape a little bit better always wash your potatoes first even if
you’re not going to peel it and if there is a blemish or an eye that’s
beginning to grow cut those off. Then you’re going to take
your potato and cut it into inch, inch and a half pieces.
Cook a potato per person and you’re gonna want to boil those
until they are fork-tender around 10 minutes.
Once the potatoes have boiled pour them through a colander pouring away
from you so the steam does not burn then place your boil potatoes in a bowl
and gently toss them with about a teaspoon a olive oil canola oil peanut oil you can even use some the
sesame oils anything that’s going to give it a little bit a flavor you could then add butter, salt, pepper, chives, or roasted garlic would also be a nice addition.
and then to serve, to make it a little more eye appealing, you can sprinkle it with a
few freshly chopped chives they give it a nice very mild onion flavor and when you serve boil potatoes as a
side dish, you’re serving a high vitamin C, vitamin B, fairly high fiber good for you, very filling side dish
