Plate o' Potatoes

Plate o' Potatoes

Plate o' Potatoes

Here's a great way to use some local ingredients* available from local producers right here in Ithaca, Tompkins County, and the Finger Lakes. As usual, the recipe is really just meant to inspire.

Plate o' Potatoes Recipe

Saute sliced leeks* in olive oil and butter* in a cast iron skillet, until just starting to brown, then take them out.
Slice fingerling potatoes* into 1/4 rounds and place them in skillet.
Resist the temptation to stir-- let the potatoes brown.
Put cooked leeks back in the skillet, spread evenly over potatoes, along with generous handfuls of chopped green garlic* and fresh marjoram*
Add a few rings of sweet red bell peppers and more potatoes.
Drizzle with oil and add salt and pepper.
Cover skillet, turn off heat, and attend to more pressing matters.
Add about a 1/4 Cup of water, turn heat back on, keep covered and simmer until potatoes are tender.
