Gem Potatoes with Scallion Yogurt Dip

I love potatoes! They’re so versatile that you never run out of tasty recipe combinations. When you add in a variety of colors, you’re getting new health benefits. Plants get their colors from different phytonutrients, each of which offers unique health benefits and flavors, according to research. If you find yourself making more meals from scratch, keeping lemons and limes in-stock can give most meals added flair. If you place the potatoes in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before serving or better yet, the next day, you’ll boost resistant starch.

Directions for gem potatoes with scallion yogurt dip

  1. Rinse potatoes. Place potatoes in a small pot with enough water to cover them by about 1”. Add a pinch of salt and heat on high until boiling. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes, until potatoes are fork-tender. (You can assemble the dip in the next step while potatoes are cooking). Strain and lightly rinse potatoes with cold water.
  2. In a small bowl, add yogurt, scallions, lemon juice, sea salt, and garlic. Whisk well until smooth.
  3. Serve potatoes warm or cold, dip, and enjoy!
