The perfectly nutty potato dish
I don't know about you, but I feel like it’s been particularly cool this past week. The cooler weather brings out a side of me which wants to eat soups, stews and can’t be bothered with complicated dishes. So recently I have been flexing my one-pot dinner muscles.
Riverbend potatoes make for the perfect vehicle for these one pot meals & this is one of my favourite versions. Note that if you get some fun greens in your CSA, like kale or chards, you can just chop those up to make this dish. No need to get fancy. Greens are greens. Yes, they have different tastes & textures but in this instance, they are pretty interchangeable.
