it´s so easy to grow your own potatoes

by soffiagudrun


You don´t have to have a garden or live in the country to grow your own potatoes, you can do it on your balconies as well. Here you can see how Jamie Oliver and his friends do it.


Last night I made a potato dish that was really good. As usual I had no Idea what to make when I got into the kitchen… Well I knew it would have something to do with a potato, since I spent the day growing potatoes in a garbage bag.

Potato and white wine with lemon

  • Potato
  • Rice (boiled)
  • Garlic
  • Ginger, fresh
  • Sour cream
  • Roasted seeds and Pine nuts (pumpkin and sunflower seeds)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Butter
  • Cheese
  • garlic chives

Cut potato in half, bake in oven until ready. The potato gets a brown hard thing when baked (on top) so clean it off with a knife, then take out all the potatoes with out harming the skin and put in a bowl. (This is a Jacket potato recipe)

In a pan or pot put in butter, garlic and ginger, then the cold boiled rice. Warm up the rice for couple of minutes. Salt it.

In the bowl with the potatoes, mix the rice with the potatoes, put in some sour cream, the nuts and seed and a little bit lemon juice. Salt and pepper. Put the mix back into the potato skins. Sprinkle with shredded cheese and put in oven on grill until cheese is melted. Sprinkle some garlic chives on top.

Served with a chilled white wine (Chardonnay) in a shot glass with a lemon!
