Because delicious & healthy aren't mutually exclusive.

My daughter named these tasty spuds many years ago and it’s what we’ve called them ever since. She was very clear on the spelling, however, that it be different than its homophone: boy. (HOMONYMS are words that sound alike but have different meanings. Homophones are a type of homonym that also sound alike and have different meanings, but have different spellings.) Finally! I got to use my English degree on YumVeg! Back to the potatoes now, folks.

There’s nothing special about them, and they’re up for whatever variation you’d like to throw into the mixture. When I have fresh herbs I toss them in. When I don’t, I stick with freshly-ground black pepper and my favorite French Grey Sea Salt from Williams-Sonoma.

Preparing the potatoes takes only as long as chopping them lasts. The rest is fast. I leave on the skins, after washing them well, and chop them into bite-sized pieces. You can cut them however you like – if you want wedges that works nicely, too.

These are a lovely addition to many different dishes, but not a stand-alone. Let me know your favorite pairing!

  1. We make Boi Potatoes, too, but without the oil. I totally forgot that I could broil them and make the cooking go a lot faster. If I am feeling adventurous, I toss in some cioppolini onions, too. I am looking forward to trying the cabbage apple salad with it. What a great winter salad! Thank you, Arminda.
