This is really easy, and I think you need to know. I stumbled across the greatest method of making potatoes ever. You can use regular potatoes with any savory spices you want, but I’ll used curried sweet potatoes as my example.
Cut two large sweet potatoes into 1/4-inch cubes — approximately.
Mix (and these are guesses on the measurements)
- 1tbs red curry powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1tbs brown sugar
- Salt and pepper to taste
Toss the potato cubes in a bowl with oil (safflower is a good option) and all of the dry spices. Bake in oven at 400º until almost done — maybe about 15 or 20 minutes.
Pull these suckers out the oven and sauté in butter until golden brown.
The baking cooks the potatoes and melds the flavors, but the sautéing really gives each cube a solid outside that you don’t get any other way. Use them as a side, or add them to other dishes.
These go GREAT in stir-fry, or you can use Mexican themed spices and put them in tacos! Or use this method with regular potatoes, but sub in some garlic and rosemary! Just do it! Whatever you do!
That is all.
