More on potatoes……..

Preserve the color of cut potatoes by storing them in cold water, and add lemon juice or a little vinegar. Limit water soaking to two hours to retain water-soluble vitamins.

Veggie Pot Pie
Using a prepared whole-grain crust makes it easy to enjoy this comforting classic. A one-wedge serving of this wonderful pie may not satisfy larger appetites, so double the recipe to ensure enough helpings at a holiday meal.

Recipe Ingredients:
4 medium potatoes
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon light olive oil
1 medium onion, quartered and thinly sliced
1 medium carrot, thinly sliced
1 cup finely chopped broccoli
2 tablespoons unbleached white flour
1/2 cup low-fat milk, rice milk, or soy milk
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley (optional)
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
9-inch prepared good-quality pie crust, preferably whole grain
1/2 cup whole grain bread crumbs

Cooking Directions:
1 – Cook or microwave the potatoes in their skins until done. When cool enough to handle, peel them. Dice two of them and mash the other two. Set aside until needed.
2 – Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
3 – Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet. Add the onion and carrot and sauté over medium heat until both are golden.
4 – Add the broccoli along with a small amount of water. Cover and cook until the broccoli is tender but not overdone, about 3 to 4 minutes.
5 – Sprinkle the flour into the skillet, then pour in the milk, stirring constantly. Cook for a minute or two, until the liquid thickens a bit, then stir in both the diced and mashed potatoes. Heat through gently. Stir in the optional parsley and season with salt and ground black pepper. Pour the mixture into the pie crust and pat in.
6 – Place the bread crumbs in a small mixing bowl. Drizzle in the remaining teaspoon of oil and stir until the crumbs are evenly moistened. Sprinkle them evenly over the pie. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the crust is golden. After removing from the oven, let the pie stand for 10 minutes or so, then cut into wedges and serve.
Makes 6 servings.

More Potato logic…………

Sprouts are a sign that the potato is trying to grow. Storing potatoes in a cool, dry, dark location that is well ventilated will reduce sprouting. Cut the sprouts away before cooking or eating the potato.

Some Potato logic…………

If there is slight greening, cut away the green portions of the potato skin before cooking and eating. Green on the skin of a potato is the build-up of a chemical called Solanine. It is a natural reaction to the potato being exposed to too much light. Solanine produces a bitter taste and if eaten in large quantity can cause illness.

A flash under the broiler leaves these slices of corn-studded polenta golden on the outside and soft on the inside; an herby, smoky tomato-pepper salad acts like a salsa to be spooned over the top………..

Loaded Baked Potato Soup
This healthy loaded baked potato soup recipe is inspired by the comforting flavor of fully loaded baked potatoes with bacon, Cheddar, sour cream and chives. To make a vegetarian version of this potato soup, omit the bacon and use “no-chicken” broth. Serve it with a green salad and crusty bread to clean up the bowl……..

Potato-Leek Bisque
It’s hard to believe how rich and creamy this potato-leek soup is even though there’s not a drop of cream in it. Croutons topped with anchovy, olives and leek are a crunchy, savory foil to the soup. But skip them if you like and incorporate all the cooked leeks into the soup instead…………..

Roasted Cauliflower and Potato Curry Soup
In this healthy cauliflower soup recipe, roasting the cauliflower first adds depth and prevents the florets from turning to mush. A little tomato sauce and coconut milk give the broth a rich, silky texture. Serve with a dollop of sour cream or yogurt, if desired…………
