Resourceful and versatile potato will surprise you again with this melting potato skillet. Cut in small dices, it is cooked with mushrooms, carrots, tomato and Parmesan in a recipe largely inspired by risotto.

The secret to this potato skillet is to choose firm potatoes so they don’t lose their texture when cooked.

Directions

1. In a large skillet, heat butter and olive oil and sweat shallot and garlic for 2 minutes over medium heat and deglaze with white wine. Allow the sauce to reduce and add carrot and continue cooking for 3 minutes.

2. Stir in the potatoes and simmer for 5 minutes. Add diced tomato, sliced leek and season with Italian spices. Cook for 2 minutes.

3. Pour vegetable broth and simmer gently for 10 minutes, or until potato is cooked al-dente. Adjust seasoning. Meanwhile, fry mushrooms with a dollop of butter in a separate skillet.

4. Add cream and mushrooms to the potatoes, then season generously with salt and pepper and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more. Serve hot, garnished with Parmesan shavings, and a drizzle of olive oil, if desired.

Note: Choose firm potatoes (we used red potatoes) that will hold their shape well, and monitor cooking carefully. Stop the cooking as soon as potatoes are al-dente, otherwise you want mashed potato.
