These tiny potatoes have a lot of flavor and make a bright addition to any meal. They’re even great to eat cold at 10:30 in the morning. At that time and served cold, potatoes contain resistant starch, working more as fiber for you than calories and starch against you. Make a meal of it by pairing these potatoes with Chard and Roasted Butternut Squash.
