Herb-Braised Potatoes (Recipe)

Herb-Braised Potatoes (Recipe)

 

This is an excellent Valentine’s Day dinner side dish. Heck, it’s so easy, you don’t need a holiday to enjoy these braised potatoes at all — a busy weeknight will do just fine!

Herb-Braised Potatoes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup vegetable broth
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 Cloves garlic, halved
  • 1 Strip lemon zest
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • 2 Sprigs thyme (you can substitute rosemary or a few sage leaves)
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 12 Baby, fingerling or new potatoes, scrubbed and/or peeled and halved

Instructions:
1. In a lidded medium saucepan, bring broth, 1/2 cup water, olive oil, garlic, lemon zest, bay leaf and thyme to a boil. Season with salt and pepper. Once it’s boiling, cover and turn the heat down to simmer. Cook for about 5 minutes. Stir in potatoes, cover again, and continue simmering for another 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are easily pierced with a knife.
2. Using a slotted spoon, transfer potatoes to a warm bowl and cover. Turn the heat of saucepan to medium-high and cook until the broth has reduced a little. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer potatoes to bowl and pour a little broth over them.

As for fattening if you can not over eat it would be fine. If you do overeat, get back on track the next day. I realize not everyone can just eat a small portion . A treat a few times a year. You don't need them every night. I don't personally believe in depriving. Then you eat more of other things.....

Maybe make a smaller portion next time you cook them.
You can't deprive yourself of everything .

I'm diabetic so sure I should not eat potatoes. I LOVE them and never fried ever. BUT I eat them 2/3 times a year and similar to this recipe.
