Roasted potato peelings for an appetizer.

Thank to the lockdown, I have learned a lot of things out of boredom. A couple of weeks ago, my eldest daughter Tania sent me a link with a recipe for roasted potato peelings. Another bored lady, I thought. But the next time I made mashed potatoes (I like to boil them peeled), I washed them very well first, dried them and pourred a bit of olive oil on them before taking them to the oven (40 minutes). They turned out delicious! So when and if this virus is over and I have friends around, one of the appetizers will be potato peelings. I imagine that you can add a bit of crushed garlic too, but I haven´t done it yet. After the COVID I´ll be an expert in using leftovers. I´m not throwing away anything.

Since nearly all the goodness in a potato is within about an eighth of an inch of the skin, it makes a lot of sense either to not peel them or to use the peelings for something. I have made a very good, nutty soup from potato peelings (I roasted them first in the oven) but I never thought of making a snack from them. I should think that plenty of salt and garlic powder (or chili or curry powder) would work very well.

My friend taught me to do mash potatoes and it's good for diet.

You and Coral are two peas in a pod for using leftovers. I love potatoes in any way, shape or form...as long as there isn't any onions or garlic! Have a great day.
