Simple Fresh Herbed Reds

{meat & potatoes}


Another side dish strikes again!  I love red potatoes.  Well, I love potatoes.  However, I know my body doesn’t necessarily need the sugars and carbs that come along with them.  However, for some reason I pretend eating red potatoes is healthier.

I’ve made them every which way:  mashed, smashed, boiled, roasted, potato salad, sauted into a hash.  Their mild flavor allows any flavor to stick nicely to them.  Also, their small shape results in a quick cooking potato.  My go-to definitely is a simple roasted red potato.  I usually quarter them and then roast with some olive oil.  Season with salt and pepper.  Boom.  Done and done.  However, the night I decided to make these I had no intention of putting on the oven (I had the self cleaner on and it already made the house hot enough).

Now, my method for making this little side dish isn’t the most nutrient-saver friendly, but it was quick and tasty.  Sometimes, quick and tasty are my best friends.  I took a few of the potatoes (washed) and put them into a plastic bag and cut a small vent.  Into the microwave they went to steam to perfection.  It was about 6-8 minutes until they were fork tender.  Tossed them in my fresh herbs and plated them with our spicy sausages.

Sometimes there’s just something delicious and comforting about a basic meat and potatoes dinner.  This super simple side dish is ready in minutes, but tastes fresh & flavorful.  If you are a busy mom/dad/person, this is something to add to your “quick dinners” list.  They go well with any type of meat, poultry or fish.  Afraid of the ol’ microwave?  Half the potatoes and roast in the oven then toss with the herbs.

I hope you all are having a great week thus far and enjoying our beautiful summer weather!  Speaking of… wouldn’t these potatoes pair nicely with a delicious juicy grilled steak??
