Parsley Smashed New Potatoes
“Freshly dug, true “new” potatoes are so creamy and flavorful they hardly need any additional ingredients to make them spectacular. Here we tumble them with a bit of butter, tangy yogurt, scallions and just-chopped fresh parsley. If new potatoes are not available, use any small red potatoes. ”
2 pounds new or baby red potatoes, (1- to 2-inch diameter), large ones quartered
⅔ cup low-fat plain yogurt
2 scallions, cut in half lengthwise and finely chopped
¼ cup finely chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons butter, softened
¾ teaspoon salt
White or freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Add potatoes, cover and steam until very tender when pierced with a fork, 20 to 25 minutes. (Check the water level near the end of steaming to be sure the pan doesn't boil dry. Add more boiling water as needed.)
2Meanwhile, combine yogurt, scallions, parsley, butter, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
3Mix the cooked potatoes into the yogurt mixture, breaking them up with a fork until they crumble apart and lightly clump together.
