This week we’re talking fingerling potatoes! These cuties are perfect as a side dish or base for your meals. Fingerling potatoes come in an array of colors. Their versatility and flexibility make them adaptable to so many delicious recipes!
Fingerling potatoes are easily recognized by their yellow, purple, white, and red varieties. They look like long fingers, which adds a fun twist when it’s time to cook them up. They are more petite in size than other potatoes, which means they usually don’t take as long to cook. Fingerling potatoes have a similar nutrition profile to a standard potato. They are an excellent source of vitamin C, potassium, and a good source vitamin B6.
Fingerling potatoes have an earthy and buttery flavor with a soft texture when cooked. They’re best prepped with the skin on due to their small size. Leaving the skin on is also a great way to boost fiber intake. Cut them length-wise, roast in the oven, and enjoy with a delicious dipping sauce. Fingerling potatoes can be purchased year round at your grocery store or local farmers market. To store fingerling potatoes, keep them in a cool, dark place for about one to two weeks.
