Total Time: 25 minutes
4 medium russet potatoes
1 cup boiling water
6 sun-dried tomatoes, not packed in oil (1/4 cup)
1/4 cup slivered fresh basil leaves
1 tablespoon capers
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
Pierce potatoes all over with a fork. Place in the microwave and cook at 50% power, turning once or twice, until the potatoes are soft, about 20 minutes. (Or, use the “potato setting” on your microwave and cook according to the manufacturer’s instructions.)
Pour boiling water over sun-dried tomatoes in a small bowl. Let soak for 5 to 10 minutes to soften, then drain and cut into thin slivers.
Combine the tomatoes, basil, capers, garlic and oil in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Serve over the baked potatoes.
