Tasty Tip of the Day: Tough Taters

Yeah, so this one is a little bit of a repeat, but it's good so, it's one worth repeating.  Today's tip is how to decrease the prep time for one (if not my favorite) potato involving dish.

I'm talking about my South of the Border Sweet Potato and Quinoa dish.  This tip is useful, however, for this or any other potato-including-meal you might desire.

The tip is to "nuke" the starchy little suckers.

Depending on the intensity of your microwave and it's setting, the time will vary slightly from oven to oven.  But, if you place your potatoes in the microwave for about 1-2 minutes on each side, they will soften to the point that cutting them or removing the skin is a very much easier, less time consuming process.

And who doesn't love "less time consuming?"  Hello!

Less Prep.
            Faster to Eat.
                    More time with the Fam.

You can't be mad at that.
