A delicious Satay Potato bake

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

The ultimate comfort food- a spicy, potato bake made with Cypriot new potatoes, coconut milk and Thai spices. This is one delicious dish! Perfect for vegetarians too- why should the meat eaters have all the satay fun?

I am a big fan of satay sauce and love Thai spices.  One of my go to favourite dishes is my Chicken Satay which is always very well received!  I decided to see if I could make the satay flavours work with Cypriot new potatoes as my entry into the Foodies 100 and Tesco #CypriotNewPotatoes challenge.  This was a bit of a gamble but I was delighted with the results.  The sauce gets absorbed into the potatoes and the edges have a lovely chewy consistency.  You can make it a little less spicy by leaving out the chilli but I loved the fiery kick it added!  I used almond butter as I think it is a bit healthier than peanut butter but it works just as well with either.  I will definitely be making this again.

Cypriot New Potatoes are available in Tesco stores Nationwide.   Thanks to Tesco for the gift voucher to cover expenses for experimenting.
