Water Fried Potatoes
I love potatoes!! Fried, baked, mashed, smashed, whatever, they are just good!! Well, in order to partake in this vegetable while on a weight loss journey there must be some compromise. Baked with nothing on it, unless you eat Non-Fat plain yogurt, mashed with Low Fat, lower sodium chicken broth or WATER FRIED!! Are you laughing yet? That’s the best way I can think of to describe these potatoes. My husband asked for fried potatoes one night without the “fried” so I set-out to make them.
Wash, peel (or not depending on how you like them) and dice your potatoes. (how many you use depends on how many you need)
Put about 1 cup of water per potato in your pot to boil. Add nothing!!
Here I used red potatoes and I left the skin on. With most potatoes they will foam up a little, that will go away. If you want, you can cover the pan and reduce flame and let the water soak up faster but if not, if you are doing other things and have time just let the water soak in on medium flame.
At this point I like to add my sea salt and any other seasonings you may want. Garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, etc. With salt, always keep it at a minimum – I use 1/2 tsp sea salt.
