Let's re-evaluate the boiled potatoes. They don't deserve to be snubbed! Match them in the right way they will surprise you
Steamed or boiled
THE two cooking methods they are different, just as the final result is different.
If you want to boil the potatoes, remember to dip them in cold water and never in boiling water. To speed up cooking times you can cut them into pieces, but the ideal would be to cook them whole with the peel. They are ready when pricking them with a fork they turn out soft even in the heart.
If, instead, you want to steam them, peel them, cut them and place them inside one steam. They will stay more compact and tasty and keep all nutritional properties intact.
We cannot say precisely how long the potatoes are cooked because it all depends on tuber size. However, we can state approximately that a medium-sized potato must cook for 30 minutes calculated from the moment it is immersed in cold water inside the pot. You can alternatively use a pressure cooker to make first or choose new potatoes that are smaller.
Boiled potatoes with oil and salt

They are a fast and easy side dish to match with any dish and if enriched with a light seasoning and with other vegetables, or with meat and fish, they also worthily replace a pasta dish because they are rich in carbohydrates.
