Steamed Potatoes With Lemon Juice and Herbs Recipe

One of the downsides of boiling potatoes is that quite a bit of their nutritional value goes down the drain along with the cooking water.  You can bake the potatoes, but even using a microwave this can take a long time.

Steaming is one fast way of having highly nutritious, “boiled” potatoes.  Just remember to cut up your potatoes in even rounds so that all the rounds are done at the same time.

    Hi, thanks a lot for the recipe. What are your reasons for salting the potatoes after steaming? Wouldn’t salting them beforehand season them more thoroughly.
