Ethiopian Beet and Potato Salad

 

Beets are one of our favorite summer salad! For this recipe I reduced the potatoes to only one small one (about 150 g) as we were only 3 persons. The mustard seeds make this dish special and I loved the lemon (instead of vinegar) for this recipe.
I did not dice the onions, I simply sliced them and I placed them about 1 hr in cold water to make them milder (I knew mines were to strong).
I topped them with parsley to serve.

  • 150 g yellow potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 500 g red beets
  • 1/4 c fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp peanut oil (or olive oil)
  • 1/2 medium onion (yellow or red), sliced and placed in cold water to make it milder
  • 1 jalapeño chile, seeded and finely diced (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt, to taste
  • 1/4 tsp yellow mustard seeds (mustard preparation with whole seed would work as well)
  • 1 pinch fenugreek powder (optional)
  • chopped parsley to serve

Thyme & Lemon Smashed Potatoes

This dish gave to my whole apartment such a tempting smell! I love the thyme addition! I used the herbs from my garden and potatoes I have at home (yellow and one purple potatoes), they where great and taste but did not turn to mashed potatoes (this depends on the quality of the potatoes). I prepared as suggested (halved and with skin), placed them cut slice done on the plate and then tossed with the additions. Finally I placed them in the oven again (cut side up) until the borders were lightly browned.
I’m super happy with the results, I will prepare these in the same way again and I highly recommend this preparation.
No matter did not turn out as mashed potatoes, they were perfect in any case and I did not miss anything.

Ingredients

  • 1 kilogram potatoes (Carisma Potatoes, unpeeled and halved)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil (extra virgin)
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and finely grated
  • 1 lemon, whole (finely grated zest of)
  • 2 tablespoons thyme leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika (smoked, ground)

Bay-scented-Potatoes---Batatas-Com-Louro

This is the first time I prepared in this way! I was lucky I had those the perfect potatoes on hand and enough dried bay!  The aromatic butter browned the potatoes nicely and was perfect to season them after opening them.

Simply boil the unpeeled potatoes and then roast them in the scented butter/olive oil mixture.

Ingredients:

  • 2 lb new potatoes, of uniform size, scrubbed but not peeled
  • 1 medium yellow onion, peeled and stuck with 2 cloves
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 large bay leaves, crumbled fine
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Roast Potatoes with Lemon and Coriander

Roast-Potatoes-with-Lemon-and-Coriander

Super tasty and easy!
I just had the coriander at home on hand and I could not resist this recipe.
I found the addition of lemon juice wonderful as well.
Before serving I had to place the ready potatoes in the preheated oven to keep warm, this was not a problem, as I could increase the temperature to sever them hot as my family was complete.

Ingredients

  • 2 lb new potatoes, peeled
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 5-6 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 1/2 lemons, juiced
  • 1 large handful of chopped coriander
