“I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.” – Oscar Wilde

This recipe is the beauty of simplicity and another example of creating something from your fridge and pantry. The stuffing of potatoes can be as creative as your imagination. I’m sharing with you what I came up with for a simple, healthy lunch. This can be served as a starter or side but I had it with a fillet of Sole fish as a complete meal. I enjoyed every morsel of it, hope you will too 🙂

For Stuffed Potatoes :

4 large potatoes, boiled with skins
1 cup peas boiled
3/4 cup homemade cottage cheese (for low calorie version), recipe is on my blog
3/4 cup cheddar cheese
1 table spoon mustard sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Salt to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil

This Is What You Do :

Boil 4 large potatoes without peeling off the skins . Potatoes should be done to the core but not mushy or falling apart. Boil peas in another pan with a pinch of salt for 5 minutes. Let potatoes cool down to room temperature. Heat oven at 180 degrees C. Cut the potatoes into two lengthwise. Take a teaspoon and scoop out the centres of the potatoes, leaving potato cups behind . Mix mustard and black pepper into the scooped out potatoes, stir in peas and pickled olives. Fill the potato cavity with 1 table spoon cheese(of your choice, I used home made cottage cheese), 1 tablespoon potato and peas mix. Repeat with all potato cups. Place in an oven proof dish, drizzle with olive oil and bake for 8 minutes or till the potato skins become slightly golden and crispy.

For Sweet and Sour Sauce :

4 ripe tomatoes, diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed and finely chopped
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 tablespoon olive oil

This Is What You Do :

Heat oil in a small sauce pan, add garlic and sauté for a few seconds. Add all the other ingredients and 1/2 cup water. Cover the pan, reduce heat and let it simmer for 5-6 minutes or till the tomatoes are tender. Squish the tomatoes with a spoon while stirring the sauce. Turn off heat as the sauce thickens slightly.

Spoon the sauce in a deep plate, serve warm potatoes over it. Enjoy !
