I didn't enjoy cooking until recently, so I still have the bad habit of not preparing something to eat until I'm ravenously hungry. I tend to fall back on black beans and rice and chickpeas with garlic and parsley, but sometimes I get tired of it and make potatoes instead.
My super easy recipe for balsamic potatoes uses the microwave, but I'm sure there are better ways to prepare this if you've got a little more time on your hands and don't mind cleaning up the stove top.
- Thyme (fresh or powdered)
- Balsamic Vinegar
- Olive Oil
- Yellow Potatoes (I used five in varying sizes)
- Garlic (fresh or jarred preferred)
Wash potatoes and cut into bite sized pieces (keep in mind that smaller pieces will cook through quicker). Place in microwave safe bowl and add salt, balsamic vinegar, thyme, olive oil, and garlic to taste. Use a large spoon to coat potatoes evenly.
Cover bowl completely with plastic wrap and microwave for 5-8 minutes at a time, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are cooked through. Garnish with arugula to taste (I added a lot and it was delicious).
