I looooove having a wonderful breakfast before work. My day always goes better when I’ve begun it by taking good care of myself and making myself something good to eat. I’m a big fan of potatoes.. They can be prepared in such a wonderful variety of ways. I think potatoes (especially oven fries) are my number one comfort food.
My local co-op got some reallllly great fresh basil in and I had used a good portion of mine up, but wanted to find a use for the rest. I thought it’d be the perfect way to add some fresh spring flavor to some breakfast potatoes! Yum!
- 3-4 medium sized potatoes, washed and diced (I used yellow potatoes, they’re my favorite)
- 1/2 yellow onion, diced
- 2-3 cloves fresh garlic, minced
- 1 small handful fresh basil, cut into a chiffonade
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 tsp sea salt (or more to taste)
- 1 tsp black pepper
Heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Toss in potatoes and saute for 5 minutes, allowing sides to brown.
Add onions, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cover and allow to steam until potatoes are cooked through. Add 1/4 cup water if necessary.
Once potatoes are tender, add basil and stir to combine. Serve alongside some steamed greens or veggies and enjoy!
