Potatoes with Sautéed Peppers and Shallots.

Dear Reader,

I was going through life, minding my own business when a potato craving caught me, and had me thinking of potatoes for a good three hours before I submitted and made something. Potato chips or fries were not an option, they didn't have enough flavour so I made something that can be paired with a protein of your choice, for example, grilled chicken, fish or even a steak. It's very easy to make if you have the correct potatoes, i.e. potatoes that cook quickly. It took me 15 minutes to make this. Yum.

Potatoes with Sautéed Shallots.


4 medium sized potatoes
2 shallots
0.5 Red Bell Pepper
1 tsp crushed garlic
15ml Olive Oil or Ghee
5 Sun-dried Tomatoes (finely chopped)
0.5 tbsp fresh Coriander
0.5 tbsp fresh Chives
Salt and Pepper to your personal taste.


Boil peeled and largely diced potatoes in very high heat for 5 to 10 minutes. While the potatoes are cooking, chop your other ingredients. In a high heat, add all remaining ingredients except the fresh herbs and sauté until wilted and slightly caramelised. To ensure that nothing burns, keep tossing and stirring not leaving your pan's sight. When the potatoes are at the desired firmness, drain and add to the pan with shallots and toss about until the potatoes are covered in the oils. Throw the fresh herbs into the pan and serve.

I had this with ham, just because I had to have a protein with every meal, although I could have had it on it's own and it would have been okay. However we need balance in life, and we can't just have a carbo loaded lunch like this unless we are professional athletes.
