Tasty and healthy – oil free – garlic & dill savoury potatoes.

We are all about quick meals that are healthy & easy.  These garlic and dill potatoes will be a big pleaser at any gathering or dinner just for two.  Lately we have been obsessed with dill and the aromatic taste that comes through while cooking the potatoes is divine.  These are a great side dish or a simple meal if you’re in a rush!

How to :

Chop up all of your veggies and herbs and place in frying pan.  Next add your veggie broth and turn heat to medium.  Leave for 10 minutes and stir around a bit.  Let sit for another 5 mins, stir and sit for a few more mins.  Add your salt and pepper to your liking and take a taste to see if your potatoes are soft enough, but not too soft.  Don’t overcook – as they should still hold their shape in the end.

You will note that we did not add oil to this recipe and that is intended.  Any kind of oil adds a lot of calories to any meal with no nutritional value ( yes – olive oil is in that category too! but that’s a post for another day ).  Also,  we find with oil, the taste of the herbs gets hindered and why would we want to do that? The veggie broth acts as a ” no stick ” and adds some moisture to the cooking process.  When you add the veggie both you may think that it seems too liquidy but as they cook – the broth will lessen.

We hope you enjoy these delicious potatoes as much as we do.  Proof that taste and health are not mutually exclusive.  Enjoy!

Namaste.  My muse and I.
