Mashed potatoes, scalloped potatoes, sweet potatoes, even purple potatoes! Chef Jo offers some tips and tricks where potatoes are concerned, plus a guide to each.
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 onion, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 cup no-salt-added diced tomatoes (with juices)
2/3 cup low-sodium vegetable broth
4 oz small white or red creamer potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch wedges
1 tbsp fresh oregano, chopped
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 tbsp Italian parsley, chopped, divided
8 oz raw shrimp
1 cup frozen artichoke hearts, thawed (about 1/2 8-oz pkg)
In a medium (3- to 4-quart) saucepan over medium, warm oil. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until almost translucent, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute.
Add tomatoes, broth, potatoes, oregano, salt, pepper and 1/2 of parsley. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to low to maintain a simmer, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are almost tender, 4 to 6 minutes.
Add shrimp and artichoke hearts, and return to a simmer. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until shrimp is barely opaque, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve garnished with remaining parsley.
Irish Stew couldn't be easier. Just combine the ingredients in a pot, put the pot in the oven and wait. It's even better made a day ahead–the soft potatoes will break up in the liquid, making it thicker and more flavorful.
