Supercharged Potatoes

Oh YES. Yes, yes, yes!

Hi, potato dish. I say YES to you. Yes. Yes. A thousand times, yes.

(I like the word yes)

OK, enough of this nonsense, yes? On to the stuff you landed here for!

I created this recipe years ago, but it remains one of my very favorite dishes. Why? Well, for the simple reason that it has ALL of the following checkpoints: 
1. It's super flavorful
2. It's easy to make, without a ton of ingredients.
3. It's great leftover, hot or cold.
4. It's versatile
5. It's chock-freakin-full of nutrients and superfoods!!

Those are pretty good reasons to try this, yes?? :D

So, whip up a batch of these magical potatoes, and see for yourself. You can eat them plain, hot or cold - or add them to a wrap, salad, or bowl.
