Sautéed New Potatoes en Persillade
A persillade is a mixture of minced parsley and garlic that’s often used to flavor simple Provençal dishes. Try stirring a persillade into the Spring Vegetable Minestrone instead of tarragon.
1. Combine parsley and garlic in mound on cutting board; mince until pieces are size of sesame seeds. Set aside.
2. Cook potatoes in boiling, salted water 8 to 10 minutes or until tender. Drain, and cool 10 minutes.
3. Cut potatoes into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Heat oil in large skillet over high heat. Add potatoes, and cook 2 minutes, or until beginning to brown. Stir, and cook potatoes 5 minutes more, or until golden brown on all sides, tossing 2 or 3 times. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Add persillade, and sauté 30 seconds, or until fragrant, making sure not to let garlic brown.
