Potatoes with Cilantro…A Mediterranean side dish and a meal!

Postby Miss. Ladybird » Fri Apr 27, 2007 7:25 pm

It's one of my favorites, especially for dinner. It's easy and it doesn't take a lot of time to prepare.

Ingredients: (for one person )
2 boiled potatoes
1 big clove of garlic (chopped)
2 table spoons of corn oil or olive oil
3 table spoons of chopped cilantro
2 table spoons of lemon juice (optional)
-------------------------------
1- Peel and dice the potatoes. (I don't like to peel the potatoes before I boil them, 'casue the skin gives them a good flavor. But make sure that you wash them very well before boiling)
2- Heat the pan and put the oil and the garlic and mix for 2 min.
3- add the cilantro and mix for 2 min and turn off the stove.
4- add the potatoes and mix them together with the lemon juice.
5- serve it in a dish with some toast.

Bon appétit 8)

Is that what you usually have for dinner in your country? I mean do you usually have this to eat?
As here in Costa Rica you can have that but with rice, beans, salad and more things.... =0

Yes. We usually have it as a side dish with rice and chicken, but it's a BIG dinner for me :P

Well, it is interesting how culture changes from one place to other, if we could have just potatoes to eat we could die, as well as if you eat rice everyday.

I know what it is, but I don't know how to explain it :-(, however, I found this :

"...Cilantro, also known as coriander, is a plant that is widely used in Asian, Middle Eastern and Latin American cooking. The plant itself is coriandrum sativum, is indigenous to Southern Europe and the Mediterranean, and is related to parsley. In common usage, at least in the States, cilantro refers to the leaves of the plant and coriander refers to the seeds, which are often ground..."
