Red Potatos and Tomatos

Submitted by: SUNNY238

Introduction

Red potatoes are great in this recipe since they are lower in starch than Yukon Gold or Russets, but you can use any potato you have on hand. Red potatoes are great in this recipe since they are lower in starch than Yukon Gold or Russets, but you can use any potato you have on hand.

Ingredients

    4 medium Red Potatoes, cleaned and cut into bite sized pieces (you can keep skins on)
    1 tomato diced
    1/2 cup green peppers, diced
    1/2 cup red onion, diced
    2 tbsp butter (or cooking spray if you prefer)
    salt and pepper

Directions

Begin by taking the freshly diced tomato and place in a strainer over another bowl. Sprinkle with salt and let it sit as you prepare the rest of the dish. The salt will draw out some of the water so you won't end up with a soggy dish when you are finished.

Place cut up potatoes in a microwave safe dish, add a little water for steaming. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 5 min, tossing potatoes halfway for even cooking.

Meanwhile, heat skillet to medium heat and saute onions and green pepper in 1 tbsp of butter (or less, I just stated tbsp for ease of nutrition calculator) until soft. Remove from skillet and set aside. Add 1 tbsp of butter and potatoes to skillet and cook for approximately 10 minutes, or until soft, stirring only once or twice to allow potatoes to brown a bit.

Return onions and green pepper to skillet with potatoes, season with salt and pepper. Add tomatoes just before serving and toss to mix.
