Boiled New Potatoes

Boiled New Potatoes

 

 

Method: 

On a hob:

Place the salad potatoes in a pan and cover with the minimum of boiling water.

Cover with a lid and simmer gently for approximately 15-20 minutes until just tender.

Once cooked drain immediately.

 

In a microwave:

Place the potatoes in a microwaveable dish with 2 tbsp of water.

Cover and cook on full power (800w) for 7-8 minutes.

Allow to stand for 1-2 minutes before serving.

 

Salad potatoes taste great on their own, in their skins, but if you would like to add butter here are some interesting twists:

Citrus Butter: 25g softened butter mixed with the zest of an orange and half a lemon

Herb Butter: 25g softened butter mixed with 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh herbs (parsley, mint, chives etc)

Pesto Butter: 25g softened butter mixed with 1 tsp red pesto

Garlic Butter: 25g softened butter mixed with 1-2 crushed cloves of garlic

Tip:

You don't need to add butter to salad potatoes, a handful of fresh herbs, like parsley, adds flavour without the fat.
