I started off by searching 'zaar for a different mint potato recipe but to no avail, so thought I'd better post the simple and tasy way that I cook them. I eat with the skins on but they can of course be removed (it's probably easier to remove the skin after cooking and it stops them falling apart while boiling).
- Place potatoes and mint sauce in a small saucepan with just enough water to cover them.
- Cover saucepan and bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for around 15 minutes. Potatoes are cooked when they can easily be pierced with a fork.
- Strain potatoes, reserving mint pieces and return potato and mint to saucepan for a few minutes over low heat to dry them out.
*Made for Australia/NZ Swap #79* Wasn't sure about this, but gave us an entire new flavor sensation ! DH won't eat lamb, but next time I give it a try, this will be my farinacious component ! Thanks for posting, Peter !
What a different take on the good ol' potato, I added carrots to mine, thought that might be a nice touch, also added a little chicken stock to make it less dry. But I enjoyed the mint.
Everybody loved this! I'm not 100% sure I used the correct 'mint sauce' - I used Mint Sauce #17544 - but... it worked out! Made for 6/10 Aussie Swap. Thank you, Peter!
