Cut cleaned potatoes in wedges. Toss them with a mixture of 1 tablespoon (15mL) of melted butter, fresh chopped herbs, salt and pepper. Place in single layer in shallow pan and roast at 425° F (220° C) for 20 to30 minutes or until desired tenderness.
Steaming is a healthy, gentle way of cooking.
Cut potatoes into even chunks or slices. Place potatoes in a colander or steamer basket over a pot of boiling water. Cover tightly, and steam for about 7-10 minutes, or until thouroughly cooked. Be aware that large pieces of potato (or whole potatoes) will take longer to steam.
To ensure dressing coats potatoes well, add it to warm potatoes (even if you serve the salad cold). The heat of the potatoes will melt the dressing ingredients slightly and distribute it throughout the salad more evenly.
Skewer small potatoes, brush them with oil and sprinkle with seasonings, then grill them for a great side of potatoes off the grill.
When roasting potatoes, use pan drippings from a roast, bacon drippings or lard for extra flavor.
