We have an all time favorite dinner: a bowl of boiled potatoes and a bowl of fresh garden salad. No matter what elaborate meals I make, once a week (or more) we need to have our favorite meal. And I have two men to watch me (I've tried to skip it for some time but was firmly reminded to add "our favorite potatoes" to the weekly menu).
Our Farmer's Market has a variety of potatoes, hence we have a variety of potato meals. My latest favorite are fingerling potatoes that come in different colors: yellow (Russian Banana), Purple Peruvian, and red (French Fingerlings), to name a few.
I started with the yellow: when cooked they hold shape but it's creamy flesh melts in your mouth into the pleasing your taste texture.
There is no recipe how to make this potatoes, you just boil it, drain the water and top with a tablespoon of a oil of your choice, salt, minced garlic, chopped dill (mandatory in my family!), and freshly grind black pepper. Mix and serve with a side of meat, fish, or in our home with some garden salad.
Easy, quick, delicious, and healthy too (potato is a good source of dietary fiber and vitamins and minerals).
Out of curiosity I made boiled potatoes for dinner several days in a row, thinking that my men would notice and ask for something else.
Silly me! they didn't get bored of potatoes at all, and even when I asked they said they would eat boiled potatoes every day! Message taken.
