Potatoes with Garlic Scape
6 small golden potatoes, such as Yukon Gold
3 garlic cloves, sliced thinly
3 green garlic scapes, minced*
Extra-virgin olive oil
Coarse sea salt or kosher salt
Preheat the oven to 350F. Wash the potatoes. Boil a pot of water, throw the whole potatoes in. Let cook for 5 minutes, then remove potatoes and place in a bowl with ice water. Let sit for 2-5 minutes, the skin will then be very easy to remove with your fingers. Remove the skin.
Slice the potatoes thinly, then slice the garlic thinly. Place potatoes and garlic into a baking dish, then toss together with a generous amount of olive oil, and throw in the minced garlic scape and salt.
Cover the dish with aluminum foil. Place in the oven and cook for about 20 minutes, until the potatoes are soft when pierced with a pairing knife. Serve as a side for red meat, fish, or poultry!
*If you do not have access to garlic scape, that is fine! No need to fuss! Simply omit from the recipe—it will be just as tasty without!
