Potatoes take center stage quite often in our evening’s menu. They are very versatile and I found them to compliment most meals.
Having some cilantro on hand, decided to take my staple recipe and give it a spin. We love it and I cannot wait for you to try it and give me your feed back.
I made it a few times, and I love the garlic with it. With the lime juice the pungent flavor of the garlic is softened and yet you can feel the presence. The lime zest is a most as it contains most of the oils and they are released into the lime and olive oil.
