Snazz up plain baby potatoes for a tasty side dish in about 20 minutes using the pressure cooker.
Potatoes have gotten a bad rap in today's carb-o-phobic diet culture. Potatoes actually have plenty of fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants which provide numerous benefits to your digestive system and heart health.
However, frying them in oil or loading them with butter, cream and cheese are not the healthiest ways to enjoy them.
Enter this flavorful, but simple, preparation method. Just cut up some baby potatoes, pop them in the pressure cooker for a few minutes then toss them with fresh herbs and Parmesan cheese. Or leave out the cheese for a vegan dish.
Easy and delicious!
What kind of Potatoes Should I Use?
I used baby gold potatoes. But you can use just about any waxy potato so they hold their shape. New potatoes, fingerlings, baby red potatoes.
If you opt for a larger potato, you can cut into quarters instead of halves so they cook completely in the time below.
