Potatoes are a versatile vegetable that can be cooked in many different ways. They can be grilled, roasted, cooked in the microwave, cooked on the BBQ, steamed or boiled.
They can be cooked and mashed for mashed potato, sliced and made into a potato bake, baked whole for baked potatoes, used in potato salads and in soups & curries to name a few.
- Use minimal oil, butter, and margarine when cooking
- Add chicken or vegetable stock when cooking to enrich the flavour
- Use fresh herbs, spices, lemon juice, verjuice, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper to add to your cooked potatoes to add flavour
- Use buttermilk, skim milk, low-fat natural yoghurt or sour cream when mashing. I like adding a dob of butter and dill!
- Use low-fat coconut milk in curries
