RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

SIDE DISH

PETERSILIENKARTOFFELN (Parsley Potatoes), German

This is a very common side dish in Germany and can be found throughout. In fact, Petersilienkartoffeln are often served as the side dish in nice restaurants, especially with fish. The tricky part is to find the right kind of potatoes so that you get the proper firmness so your potatoes don't come out half mashed.

Also, the better the chef making the potatoes, the finer the parsley is chopped. They use Italien parsley, not our curly kind. You should only see specks of parsley, and of course NO STEMS! RH

Ingredients
  • 6 potatoes - preferably small new potatoes
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • Plenty of chopped parsley
  • Salt
Preparation Instructions

Peel and boil potatoes in salt water. Drain. Melt butter, add parsley, then potatoes and steam a few minutes. Serves 4.
