This recipe closely resembles a dish from Apulia, pitta di patate. We prefer baking the potatoes, rather than boiling them, as they make for a firmer crust. It will not, however, become fully crisp in either case. The chewy potato character will always dominate.
This bread loaf boasts a beautiful bouquet of herbs baked into the crust. Flavored with more herbs, it’s a delicious accompaniment to savory dishes, and is also tasty toasted with honey. Mmmmm so good! Bread can be made gluten-free by substituting the gluten-free flour mix for basic flour. See the “tips” section.
Appetizer, Side Dish
Peru may well have been the birthplace of America’s favorite vegetable. Certainly one of the favorite ways to eat potatoes in Peru is in ceviche: a fresh, light mélange of fish marinated in lime juice with loads of aromatics and vegetables. Serve this refreshing lunch or first-course starter in lettuce cups, or scoop it up on baked tortilla chips.
This recipe is perfect for on-the-go families who want to come home to a comforting meal that’s ready to eat. With just 30 minutes prep time, you can set the slow cooker in the morning and forget about it until dinner time. Adding Herbs de Provence (dried herbs found in the spice section of most grocery stores) makes this dish smell as good as it tastes, exuding a “fresh from the farmer’s market” flavor. Plus, it’s easy to adapt the basic recipe
