What Can You Make Out of Baby Potatoes?

Who does not like a baby version of something? Yes, they are all cute. Kittens, puppies, newborns, baby carrots and last but not least, baby potatoes. I find them naturally “al dente”; since they are younger and keep their crispness even when cooked. Whether baked, boiled or roasted; baby potatoes are likely to surprise you from the very first bite. I barely hold myself not to eat them raw. If digestion problems were off the table, I would’ve really tried.

Rather than consuming them raw, I hereby suggest you to try 2 unique recipes that you can perfectly fit your “baby potatoes” into.

Roasted Baby Potatoes Salad

2-3 Servings / Prep. Time: 15 min / Cook Time: 10 min

Ingredients:

  • 6-8 baby potatoes
  • 1 cup boiled/canned chickpeas
  • 2 cans tuna fish
  • 2 cups lettuce
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 2 tbsp olive oil+juice of half lemon+salt

    *Amounts could be applied to your preferences, just use as much as the amount you’d prefer to add to a bowl of salad.

Instructions:

  1. Prepare and cut all the vegetables then put them into a large bowl.
  2. Combine them with chickpeas and tuna fish, while roasting baby potatoes on one side.
  3. Pour the oil-lemon-salt dressing onto the salad and place the roasted baby potatoes at the top.

Swiss Style Baby Potatoes With Melted Cheese

2 Servings / Prep. Time: 10 min / Cook Time: 20 min

Ingredients:

  • 8-10 baby potatoes
  • Melting cheese*
  • 1 Onion
  • Cornichons
  • Salt-pepper

    *Ideally “Raclette” is used but any other semi-hard melting cheeses, such as Gruyere or Emmental, would substitute.

Instructions:

  1. Boil baby potatoes, cut the onion into the layers and caramelize in a pan.
  2. After the cooking part, place the potatoes in a plate and melt the cheese onto them. Sprinkle with black pepper and a bit of salt.
  3. Serve with caramelized onions and cornichons at side.

Enjoy!
