The theme for Monday Posts in May is Potatoes.
Potatoes are a very misunderstood vegetable. Yes, they are a vegetable, plus they are healthy.
Potatoes have vitamins C and B6, potassium, copper, manganese and dietary fiber. They offer cardiovascular protection, have a potential for lowering blood pressure and have a variety of phytonutrients with antioxidant activity.
This month we are celebrating the the humble potato.
We have new potatoes. They come in a box with the dirt still clinging to them. They are fresh and wonderful.
New potatoes are early, tiny, immature potatoes of any color, usually 1″ (2.5cm) or less in diameter. They have a high moisture content, are very creamy and usually cooked whole.
If you are not so lucky use any small potato or larger potatoes cut into quarters.
As always, the Monday recipes are simple, easy, and without detailed photos, etc.
