There’s no doubt about it – potatoes are universally popular! Not only is this nightshade vegetable packed with vitamins, but it’s also a great source of mineral and trace elements. Due to their high water content, potatoes are especially low-calorie and can be cooked in all sorts of different ways.
Potatoes cooked in the steamer/cooking pot
You’ll never need to worry about overcooking again with Monsieur Cuisine! Potatoes can be boiled quickly and easily in the cooking pot, and they’re also a breeze to cook in their jackets in the steamer. Just add some delicious herb cheese, and lunch is served.
Potato side dishes
Potatoes make a fantastic accompaniment to a whole host of meals; in fact, they’re up there with rice and pasta as the most popular side dishes. For instance, potatoes go beautifully with Creamed spinach with scrambled eggs. Like classic boiled potatoes, mashed potatoes can also be whipped up in an instant in your Monsieur Cuisine. We recommend using floury potatoes if you want a really smooth mash. Add a little salt, pepper and ground nutmeg, and it makes a perfect accompaniment to meat, fish or vegetables. If you fancy mixing things up a little, we recommend folding some grated horseradish or freshly grated Parmesan into the mash.
When it comes to pan-fried dishes, traditional fried potatoes and potato pancakes are both deservedly popular. The batter for Potato pancakes can be prepared in your Monsieur Cuisine in no time, before frying until crispy. Whether you fancy a savoury version with smoked salmon or a sweet twist with apple sauce or lingonberries, they’re always a triumph.
Oven-cooked potatoes are utterly scrumptious, too. Why not try our Potato soufflé with spinach salad or a tasty Meat and potato pie?
Soups made with potatoes
Potatoes are a popular ingredient in soups like our Kale, carrot and potato soup. But potatoes don’t always have to hide in the wings, of course; for instance, they play the starring role in our delicious Potato and bacon soup.
Potato-based salads are a real treat. Of course, there’s the classic potato salad made with mayonnaise, or the Baden-style version with oil and vinegar. If you fancy trying something a bit different, we recommend our Red lentil and potato salad.
