Boiled Potato with Sour Cream and Garlic

There is no easiest way to cook potato than boiling. You get tasty and nutritious dish fast and with literally no hassle: just clean it, put to the cooking pot, bring to boil and wait.

Young potato boiled skin on tastes especially good when dressed with several spoons of sour cream, seasoned with chopped dill and minced garlic.

If you don’t have young small potatoes, use red skin ones, or any others. Clean potatoes before boiling, for young potatoes washing will be enough, old potato may need to be peeled.

Ingredients:


How to prepare, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients: young potato works the best for this recipe, you don’t really skin it, just clean good enough. I didn’t have young potatoes, but small red skin potatoes worked as good, especially boiled skins on. But if you don’t have either – you can use any potatoes you got, just clean and skin them before boiling:

  2. So, clean potatoes (even if you boil them skin on remove sprouts and wash potatoes thoroughly). If potatoes are big slice them into smaller pieces, put them to the cooking pot, fill it with cold water and put on the burner:

Tried this tonight with fat free sour cream. I used no salt but instead added crumbled bacon (reduced fat). A super simple, diet friendly, delicious dish that is packed with flavor. Will definitely make this again!

This sounds wonderful, especially adding the garlic to the potatoes. Thank you for sharing the idea!

Sounds yummy! I usually eat boiled potatoes with dill, garlic, and butter instead of sour cream. In my husband’s family, mayonnaise is a common substitute for sour cream or butter in this dish.
