Potatoes are a staple in traditional and current Irish cooking! They’re versatile, tasty, and nutritious. Unpeeled potatoes are a good source of vitamin C, potassium, and vitamin B6.
Several herbs traditionally used in Irish cooking include sage, rosemary, thyme, parsley, and caraway seeds. For this recipe we will be using parsley, sage, and rosemary but feel free to get creative and add the spices that suit your palate!
- 4-5 medium sized potatoes, cubed
- 3-4 Tbsp olive oil (depending on your skillet)
- 1 tsp moringa powder
- ¼ tsp sage (dried)
- ¼ tsp rosemary (dried)
- Salt and pepper
- Fresh parsley*, loosely chopped
Please note about the parsley–some types are more commonly used as garnish and some types are more commonly used as a spice in recipes. For this dish, I used Italian parsley, which looks like cilantro but with a bigger leaf. This kind is great for garnish as well as a spice!
- Wash and cube the the potatoes, set aside in a large mixing bowl.
- Put a skillet on medium/low heat and drizzle about 1 tablespoon of olive oil into the skillet.
- Mix the dry herbs and moringa powder together.
- In the large mixing bowl, toss the herb mix, potatoes, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil until the potatoes are coated. Adjust your olive oil measurements if you need! Here’s a tip–start with less than the recommended amount and add more as you mix until the consistency is right. You want the potatoes to be coated but not so coated that they are covered in olive oil sauce.
- Transfer potato and herb mixture into the skillet and cook on medium/low covered for 20 min stirring occasionally.
- Continue to cook uncovered on medium/high for about 15 min, stirring often so the potatoes brown on all sides.
- As the spices hydrate and the potatoes turn golden brown as they cook, add salt and pepper to taste.
- Serve hot and garnish with loosely chopped fresh parsley.
