Lunch box idea: Farmers Potato recipe
It is middle of the week and we care about what you put in the lunch box of your little ones. Remember that what you feed them goes a long way to nourish, strengthen and improve their health as well as ability to learn.
Here is another idea of what to do with Irish potatoes. It is called farmers potatoes because almost all the ingredients are veggies gotten from a farmers garden.
7 to 8 large potatoes
5 fingers of sausages
One large onion bulb
Green, red and yellow bell peppers, one each.
Curry spice (pinch)
Thyme spice (pinch)
How to prepare:
Peel and cut potatoes in cubes. Boil the potatoes half done with pinch of seasoning cube, a pinch of curry spice and a pinch of thyme spice. All the potatoes to cook half done, then drain the water in a sieve.
Heat vegetable oil to deep fry the half done Potatoes with sausages. Fry until it turns golden yellow. Then drain in a sieve.
In a different pan, non stick pan preferably, put one table spoon of vegetable oil, add chopped onions, chopped garlic, chopped green, red and yellow bell peppers, add chopped carrots, sweet corn and stir. Sprinkle pinch of seasoning cubes. When the veggies are half cooked add the potatoes and sausages and serve.
