OK mother of mine...I finally made something in the adorable clay pot, you let me borrow. It was really easy and very delicious...
Your granddaughters, even went back for seconds. I had company for dinner that night too. They went back for seconds and asked for the recipe...
- 8~10 small red potatoes , scrubbed and cut in half
- 1 small vidalia (sweet) onion, thinly sliced
- 4 tbs pine nuts
- 2~3 tbs extra virgin olive oil
- 3~4 garlic cloves, crushed
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 tsp garlic salt
- 1/2 cup water
- 3 tbs fresh basil, cut in small pieces
- basil sprigs to garnish
Place the potatoes in the presoaked clay pot. Mix in the onions, pine nuts, olive oil, crushed garlic, garlic salt, salt and pepper to taste. Pour in the water.
Next time I make this. I will mix everything in a separate bowl first. Then transfer to the clay pot. Except the water. Pour that directly into the clay pot.
Cover the clay pot and place in a cold oven. Set oven at 450 degrees. Cook for 1 hour or until the potatoes are tender. Remove from oven and leave the potatoes covered for 10 minutes. Mix in the fresh small pieces of basil and garnish with the whole sprigs. Serves 5~6.
