Cooking with Parsley: Purple Potatoes with Parsley

<em>Serves 3 to 4</em>
<br />
<br />
Garlic, parsley, olive oil and potatoes–what could be healthier or more delicious?</p>
<p>• 2 pounds tiny potatoes, preferably purple<br />
• ½ to ¾cup water<br />
• 1 to 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil<br />
• 1 cup minced parsley<br />
• 4 to 6 large cloves of garlic, peeled and minced</p>
<p>1. Scrub the potatoes well and trim away any soft spots. Place them in a heavy skillet fitted with a lid. Add the smaller amount of water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat, cover and simmer, adding more water if the potatoes begin sticking to the pan. When they are barely tender when pierced with a fork, lift the lid and evaporate any remaining water.</p>
<p>2. Add the olive oil, cover the pan and continue cooking over moderate heat, shaking frequently to coat all sides of the potatoes.</p>
<p>3. Mix the parsley and garlic, toss them with the potatoes and serve immediately.</p>
