Over the holidays, I received lots of goodies that I haven’t been able to share with you yet. Today, I’m sharing a potato dish that will dress up your winter dinners without a lot of extra effort – Grilled Baby Potatoes with Green Harissa.
Frieda’s sent me some beautiful tri-colored potatoes before I left town for the New Year, and Sartori Cheese provided my guests with a beautiful assortment of cheese for our Christmas Eve Open House, including a very special cheese called Merlot BellaVitano, which I used to make a pasta dish for our party.
I drew inspiration for this dish after spotting a recipe for Green Harissa in Bon Appetit magazine. Naturally beautiful blue, red, and yellow potatoes, topped with a bright green sauce, and a sprinkling of cheese, elegant yet simple.
Potatoes are definitely on the list of comfort foods, especially during the winter. Last night, I made a healthier version of Garlic Mashed Potatoes that I posted on Facebook, made with mostly cauliflower, some Yukon Gold potatoes, Parmesan cheese, fresh garlic, Roasted Garlic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, chicken broth, and a little salt and pepper. The boys said they were some of the best mashed potatoes they’d eaten – I had to try to keep a straight face when they asked what I had put in the mashed potatoes.
Today, I’m joining a group of bloggers for Food Network’s Comfort Food Fest where potatoes are being featured this week. Please check out all these fabulous potato recipes:
