Potato recipes. DD

I know that many of us are incorporating potatoes more into our diets and I thought it would be nice to have the DD potato recipes here in one place. The DD Hack thread has grown very large and I have found it difficult to page back through it for all the great recipes.
So far I boil Yukon or Baby Red potatoes in heavily salted water, then after cooled I eat them with...
A-1
Smoky Chipotle Mustard
Yellow Mustard

I know some others of you have come up with fat free (or nearly fat free) ideas to help with the monotony. Please share some with us!!

Salad.jpg I have been slicing a boiled potato on top of salad greens (plus red onion, cherry tomato, celery, etc.). I sprinkle one teaspoon of olive oil over the salad and then sprinkle malt vinegar on top. Makes a delicious DD salad.

I think some were grating potatoes, were you using raw or precooked. Also, wasn't there a recipe where you slice and bake the potatoes??

Eieio- I believe you aren't supposed to gave any fat. Some say 1tsp per potato. YMMV

I slice 'em up and fry them in no more than 1 tsp of coconut oil per tater--yum! Doesn't seem to derail the magical potato-y effects for me...

Dice about 1/2 of a large russet potato (or 2 smallish reds with the skin on) and grate the rest (or 2 more smallish reds - you want about 5-6oz total). Add in: 2-3 sprigs of parsley and 1 clove garlic, 1 green onion(sliced thin) and 1 stalk of celery(sliced thin).
Simmer in fat free chicken or beef broth until tender.
The diced will take longer than the grated, but you want that because the grated will break down and make it thicker and a bit "creamy".
Blend about 1/2 the soup until smooth then add back to the pan and heat through (make sure you blend the garlic and parsley).
Salt and pepper to taste.

*I add 1-2T vinegar and a splash of tabasco sauce to it.

BTW whoever came up with grating the potato and cooking it in a waffle iron is GENIUS! It makes crispy hash browns without all the fat and grease.
Splash of bragg's vinegar and you're good to go in the morning

I make a faux cream of potato soup for DD's.

small potato already boiled (4 0r 5 oz)
2 broth cubes dissolved in hot water
gluc to thicken

I mash the potato with a fork and add to the broth/glub mixture. Sometimes I use the stick blender but it was easier for me to just use a fork. Heat in the microwave to desired temp. Add a little black pepper and I am in heaven.

Today I took cold leftover red and russet potatoes and peeled and grated them. Then tossed with salt, pepper, and onion powder. Preheated a pan and made hashbrowns. Yum! Ate with SF ketchup

For dinner (bringing to work) I cut up red, Yukon, and russets, they are boiling now. I will add salt, pepper and chicken broth to make mashed potatoes.

I made fantastic potato chips this morning in my microwave--I used my mandolin and sliced the taters thin--placed them on some parchment paper and nuked for two minutes, flipped, and one more--yummy and crispy and delicious!

Okay, I'm not doing the potato thing, but Ouiz, I have to ask how you prepare these? I love potatoes O'brien and rarely make them because I fry them in oil. What temperature do you set the George Foreman on, do you put the potatoes on frozen or thawed, and how long??? I'm about to rush to the store for some frozen O'briens!!

Just made Dottie's soup minus the celery ( didn't have any) and its delicious!!!

Aldi I blended half the soup with a stick blender. I didn't need to use any gluc to thicken it

Dawn--I just heat up the George Foreman til the light turns green (or red or whatever colour it turns when it is hot, lol). I mist it with real olive oil (I have a pump sprayer because you aren't supposed to use accelerants on a foreman) and spread the tater mix frozen on the grill. I actually let it cycle from green to red a few times to make sure the potatoes are good and toasty and brown. scrape onto a plate, salt and nom nom!!

Drat, my GF grill has a temperature gauge and no green/red lights. I'm still going to have to experiment though, because I'm totally craving O'briens.

Ouis, Are you using something like a Misto mister? I have one that I put OO in and it sprays a fine mist. I used it to spray my roasted new potatoes and it works perfectly.

I wanted to share this potato recipe...I saw on a cooking channel, ...it sounded kind of good...I made it and really enjoyed it...diced up about 4 average russets and boiled and drained...in another skillet I fried some cabbage and a few green onions..seasoned with some thyme flakes...I then used some ff chicken broth to mash the potatoes, and then mixed in the fried cabbage and onions...not sure if this would hurt the effectiveness of the taters, but, it sure did taste good to me..

the NYT today has a wonderful article by Mark Bittman on cooking yukon gold potatoes. Although many of the recipes are full of fat, I think they could be easily adapted to our plan--

Here is a recipe I posted in the regular Hack thread...


I made a potato salad with steamed red potatoes chopped up, sugar free relish, Walden Farms honey mustard salad dressing, some spicy mustard, onion powder, salt and pepper.

It was yummy. The longer it sat, the more flavorful the potatos got so best to make it ahead of time. You are also eating the potatoes cold, which is supposed to be good.
