Pinterest: Smashed Potatoes

So far, so good.  I have yet to find a recipe on Pinterest that I don’t absolutely love!

Last night’s experiment, Smashed Potatoes.

Want the recipe?  Well, then….It is not my own, so…..Check out the recipe here!

Serious yum!

My husband, Russ was all over these potatoes.  He loved ’em.  And when Russ is happy, I am happy. 🙂

These potatoes have a few steps.  Bake with water is step one.  Followed by the smmmmmmoooooshing.

Followed by the roasting…

The rest is up to you.

We enjoyed our smashed potatoes with roasted chicken and some raw carrots and cukes.

Leftover potatoes make a wonderful addition to a lunchtime salad…if you have any leftover. 

So back to Pinterest.  Pinterest is one of the most rapidly growing social media networks and you can find just about every recipe, craft, home improvement idea you could ever imagine on this site.

It’s a great way to find healthy recipes, low FODMAP recipes, and a whole lot of sugar-laddened globs of goodness recipes too–whatever you fancy, Pinterest delivers.

Here is my FODMAP board.

Pinterest is like having your own on-line bulletin boards in which you can save and highlight recipes or crafts or whatever you ‘pin’ to your bulletin boards.  The pictures provided speak a thousand words and when you click on the picture, you are linked to the original post (usually) so that you can find more details about that picture–perhaps the recipe you want to try.

I have several bulletin boards on Pinterest, so check out my boards if you want.

I am also part of some shared Pinterest boards, such as Healthy Aperture–a great board where dietitians post unique and healthy recipes! Check it out!

I am also part of the shared board Urban Forage Files, a board started by a Melbourne dietitian, Emma Stirling, who I met when I visited Australia last year.

And FODMAP peeps interested in learning about US low FODMAP brand name products–go on over to Patsy Catsos’ page for some great info!

So check out Pinterest—you’ll be glad you did. And when you do, check out this AMAZING smashed potatoes recipe.  BTW…I used about 4 TB of oil on my version….just to cut back on some of the fat calories (It’s a dietitian thing! )

    My partner makes these potatoes. She boils red potatoes. Then she puts the potatoes frying pan with a little olive oil. Season with garlic and onion powder, pepper and a little coarse salt. Put a heavy frying pan on top. When the bottoms are browned, flip the potatoes and repeat. Yum.
