Italian Roasted Garlic And Parmesan Potatoes

Italian Roasted Garlic And Parmesan Potatoes a favourite in my household is tossed in olive oil, garlic, Italian seasonings and parmesan cheese with the option of adding red pepper flakes to kick your potatoes up a notch.

The potatoes are baked on top of each other in a casserole dish rather than spread out on a baking sheet and makes a great side dish for any main course meal.

Health Benefit Of Potatoes

Potatoes are very popular. Unfortunately, most people eat potatoes in the form of greasy french fries, potato chips or baked potatoes loaded with butter, sour cream, melted cheese and bacon bits.

Potato can be healthy, a food that offers significant protection against cardiovascular disease, cancer, heart attacks, high blood pressure, inflammation, digestion, bone health and weight management depending upon how its prepared.

Potatoes contain a variety of phytonutrients that have antioxidant activity.

Among these important health promoting compounds are carotenoids, flavonoids, and caffeic acid, as well as unique tuber storage proteins, such as patatin which exhibit activity against free radicals.

Tips For Preparing Potatoes

The potato skin is a concentrated source of dietary fiber, so to get the most nutritional value from this vegetable, don’t peel it.

Scrub the potato under cold running water right before cooking and then remove any deep eyes or bruises with a paring knife.

If you must peel it, do so carefully with a vegetable peeler, only removing a thin layer of the skin, therefore retaining the nutrients that lie below the skin.
