Steps for Parsley Potatoes

6 Minutes

Prepare the potatoes for boiling

Scrub the potatoes thoroughly with a vegetable brush to remove all the dirt. Peel a narrow strip around the center of each potato with a vegetable peeler. This will make the potatoes look prettier when they are served. If you're in a hurry, you don't need to peel this strip.

35 Minutes

Boil the Potatoes

Add 1 inch of water to the Dutch oven, cover and heat the water to boiling over high heat. Add potatoes, cover, and heat to boiling again. Once water is boiling, reduce heat just enough so the water bubbles gently. Cook covered 20 to 25 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork and then drain in a strainer.

30 Seconds

Melt the Margarine

While the potatoes are cooking, place the margarine in a small microwavable bowl or measuring cup. Microwave uncovered on High 15 to 30 seconds or until melted.

2 Minutes 30 Seconds

Prepare the Parsley

Rinse a few sprigs of parsley with cool water, and pat dry with a paper towel. Chop enough parsley leaves into small pieces on a cutting board using a chef's knife to measure 1 tablespoon, or place the leafy portion of the parsley in a small bowl or cup and snip into very small pieces with kitchen scissors. Discard the stems.

2 Minutes

The Parsley Potatoes are done after this last step

After draining the potatoes, return them to the Dutch oven. Drizzle the melted margarine over the potatoes, and sprinkle with the chopped parsley, salt, and pepper. Stir gently to coat the potatoes. Enjoy!

About Parsley Potatoes Recipe

The regular recipe is excellent, but adding parsley will make it even greater. Remember the steamed potatoes made after the grandmother’s recipe, the taste of yesteryear? With a bit of margarine and parsley, you will have a wonderful side dish or even a main course :). To tell the truth, I don’t have much to say about them, because this is a super simple and straightforward dish.


To Microwave 4 potatoes

Choose potatoes of similar size and pierce potatoes with a fork to allow steam to escape. Place potatoes and 1/4 cup water in a 2-quart microwavable casserole, arranging larger potatoes to the outside edge. Cover with plastic wrap, folding back 2-inch edge to vent. Microwave on High 10 to 12 minutes, stirring after 5 minutes, until tender when pierced with a fork. Let stand covered for 1-minute and drain in a strainer. Melt margarine as directed in step 3, and continue with the recipe.
