Steamed potatoes and veggies. Ugh. That sounds so boring. Let me tell you though, this sensational dish using Klondike Potatoes is anything but boring! A little bit of melted butter, sea salt, freshly cracked pepper and some fragrant Mediterranean spices make this dish unbelievably flavorful! Plus, it comes with another opportunity to win a Potato Prize Package. That is certainly not boring!
Another plus to this dish, it takes less than half an hour to put together. SIDE NOTE: I used considerable restraint by NOT adding bacon to this dish! Though I totally could have and it would have been awesome!
Sometimes the simplest things are the best! I took two Klondike Rose potatoes and cut them into big chunks. Then I put them in a steamer basket over about an inch of boiling water. Leave the skins on, they add flavor and nutrition, and it looks pretty!
Now, I just covered the pot and walked away for about 15 minutes. When you make yours, do something fun! Catch up on Email, flip through a few pages in the latest food magazine, Instagram your in-progress potatoes. Oh wait, that’s what I did. You can do it too though! I appreciate good potato pictures! (MyImpKitch) After the potatoes have steamed, remove them from the steam basket and place them in a bowl to stay warm. Now it’s time to add the veggies!
For this dish, I went with small florets of broccoli, baby carrots and sugar snap peas. You’re going to steam them over the same water you used for your potatoes. Start with the broccoli and carrots first. Stay close, this part goes quickly! Steam the broccoli and carrots for three minutes, then add the peas to the pot and continue to steam for just a minute or so longer.
Add the vegetables to the potatoes in the bowl and drizzle with a bit of melted butter. Stir gently to get everything lightly coated. You want to be gentle because the broccoli heads have a tendency to fall apart and you’ll have little flecks of green broccoli pieces everywhere!
Now for the flavor! Sprinkle dried oregano, chili pepper powder, paprika, garlic, rosemary, thyme, salt and cracked pepper over your potatoes and veggies. Grab a fork and dig in! It’s that easy! Simple. Delicious and it’s good for you! For my favorite vegetarians out there, this could easily be a meal by itself!
