Perfect Potatoes v. 1


Craving salty crisps?
Wanting something satisfyingly delicious without ingesting too much sodium and oil?
Go for the real deal: the root (so to speak) of the item - blessed potatoes.

Step 1:
Scrub potatoes well coz those peels are staying put! Chop and boil potatoes in salted water till soft, but still retaining their shape.

Step 2:
Saute one of these babies along with some onions in a little oil till soft.


Step 3:
Toss the boiled potatoes together with the sauteed peppers/onions. Sprinkle with feta cheese and garnish with a dollop of basil pesto.

basil pesto adds more flavor!
I know, you're eating healthy...but I have to share this; when frying french fries, I added pesto dried powder to the oil! adds another dimensions to the fries. but just add the powder before the fries are about to be done, otherwise you get burnt & bitter taste. I copied this from a restaurant I went in NYC.

Hi Lenore. I have never heard of pesto powder but it certainly sounds like it would be very yummy on fries! I love dipping oven-bake chips (fries) in gooey pesto far more than tomato sauce (ketchup) :-)
