This post is for my German potato loving friend.  Warning: No transfats, cream or cheese!

Remember the nursery rhyme: “One potato, two potato, three potato, four…”  Somehow this came to mind as I pondered how to use up some Asian yams (YUM!), classic sweet potatoes, and new potatoes. Not to mention some parsnips in the frig. 

I thought about Stephie’s recent foray into curry, so with #curry on the brain, here’s what I came up with:


One Potato, Two Potato, Three Potato, Parsnip?!

Preheat (convection) oven to 375 degrees.

3 small Murasaki* potatoes, peeled, quartered and sliced

2 small sweet potatoes*, peeled, quartered and sliced

3 small new potatoes,  quartered and sliced

2 good sized parsnips, peeled, quartered and sliced

2 sweet onions, halved and thinly sliced

Toss all this with curcumin (about 2 tablespoons), curry to taste (I used Trader Joe’s Curry mix which has a fair img_0864amount of cumin in it; probably about 1 1/2 tablespoons or so), lots of freshly ground black pepper, a touch of sea salt and olive oil. (Stephie, you’re probably gagging at the thought of this much seasoning, but really!! This dish needs it!)

Roast at 375 degrees, stirring at 20 minutes. Remove when done (about another 10 minutes).

Drizzle with #organic maple syrup.  Add a touch of salt if needed, and enjoy!

(I drizzled the maple syrup only on the portion I served. This way, I can warm up any leftovers without their getting soggy.  I’m thinking of potatoes topped with a curry fried egg sometime tomorrow! Or maybe warmed up with the world’s best #organic roast chicken. Depending on what I do with the leftovers, I’ll add maple syrup as/if needed.) #RealFood leftovers for great weekday meals! 

Ciao! (pun intended!)


*I buy my sweet potatoes in bags at Trade Joe’s.  They’re much smaller that the humongous ones you find at the grocery store or at Whole Foods.  For me, this size works best, and I like to have these on hand in my pantry.  A quick roasted potato with #organic butter and a dollop of Goat Milk Yogurt (Trader Joe’s) is an ideal side, and sometimes even a meal.  This combination also makes a great  (if unorthodox) breakfast, perhaps sprinkled with a few pecans.
