Immediately I was impressed with the packaging. I was used to buying potatoes in those large brown bags that when I would get home I would often become disappointed because the potatoes that I couldn’t see were on their way to rottsville. You never have to worry about this when you buy The Little Potato Company potatoes because they are ALWAYS fresh. Can we talk about the best part of these potatoes – they are pre-washed! No more sand in my kitchen! Alleluia! In addition to the obvious beautiful packaging that allows the potatoes to breath while you’re waiting to cook them up and them being pre-washed, Little Potato Company potatoes are available in so many different varieties: Baby Bloomer, blushing belle, fingerling, something blue, trio, little reds and little yellows, just to name a few! Lastly, their potatoes are thin skinned so there is no peeling required! That shaves a minimum of 10 minutes off my dinner prep time! I don’t have to struggle with my potato peeler and my green bin anymore!
So, Potatoes have gotten a bad wrap because of their starch content and blah blah blah but what many people don’t know is that these potatoes are actually nutritious and healthy for you to include as part of a balanced meal. They are an excellent source of Potassium also they are fat, gluten and cholesterol free!
I wanted to showcase all of the wonderful qualities of these potatoes so I wasn’t going to mash them up or hide them among other vegetables. I also didn’t want to make them a side dish, I wanted to make them into the star of the show and enhance their already delicious flavour. I chose to showcase these potatoes in a samosa – but don’t worry – they won’t be hidden inside samosa dough because my samosas are exposed, hence the name! I checked out the recipes section on the Little Potato Company’s website and they have a ton of great recipes featuring their great potatoes but I didn’t see a Samosa recipe! I was quite surprised! Who doesn’t like samosas!? It’s time to add this recipe to their website, I think!
Here is a great party appetizer to add to your menu. Enjoy!
