I’ll admit, potatoes are my favorite vegetables if I didn’t have to hear from the peanut gallery that they aren’t veggies, but starches. I mean, the good Lord gave us a veggie (starch) that can be made into a cold picnic salad, mashed goodness, french fries, or hashed browns and tastes damn good boiled or pan-seared like the recipe I’m sharing today. My pan-seared fingerling recipe is a delicious dish to add to meal prep combinations, weekday meals, and of course those long, stressful days when you could just use a potato… or is that just me?
Fingerlings are a small, usually narrow potato that has more potassium than a banana and also a great source of vitamin B6 and is fat and cholesterol-free (that is until you add other ingredients. I like to serve these with a hearty meal like steak tips or even with baked salmon.
