Easy Potato Dinner

Easy Potato Dinner

This is one of our favorite dinners for so many reasons: it is easy to make, delicious with or without meat, you can skip the sour cream, and everyone in your family will love it – I promise.

I remember watching my mom making this dish for us and she was very clever, because as we all ate the potatoes, there was always left some of the sauce. The next day she would just boil some rice or pasta and add to the sauce as soon as it was ready and voilĂ  – we had a lunch ready! Each time I make this dinner it reminds me of my childhood, and what could be better than having no worries, or stress? Is there anything better than having your mom hugging you, your dad reassuring you that everything is alright…. ok, getting here nostalgic already.

I am sure that you, guys, have memories popping up when you cook, or smell, or eat something; good memories! I am a sucker for stories, and memories, and knowing people, so feel free to share some of yours in the comment below.

Now let’s get cooking:

For this dish you will need :

2 tbsp olive oil, or any other oil
6-8 potatoes, I am using Yukon Potatoes
1 onion
2-3 cloves of garlic
10-15 cherry tomatoes, or 2 medium tomatoes
2 medium carrots
1 medium sweet pepper
1/4 to 1/2 cup of sour cream, optional
2 tbsp of flour mixed in 1 cup of cold water
Salt, pepper, bay leaf, and spices.


  1. Cut the onions, garlic, tomatoes, carrots, pepper any way you like it – don’t you already love this recipe? Heat to medium the Extra Light Olive Oil (I buy our olive oil from Costco, this link was inserted to show you which one I love). Add onions, garlic, tomatoes, carrots, and pepper to the oil and cook it on a low-medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  2. Cut the potatoes in half, and then again in half. If your potatoes are too big, you can cut them in more than four pieces. Add them to the onions.
  3. Add the spices: Rainbow Peppercorns, Sea Salt,Paprika , Chives , Parsley , Dill, Bay Leaf 
  4. Add water just to cover the potatoes. I prefer to add boiling water, but my mom always made it with cold, tap water. Stir.
  5. When it starts to boil, add the sour cream. Stir.
  6. When the potatoes are ready, add the mixed water and flour. Stir. Cook until bubbly.
  7. Add fresh dill or parsley. If you don’t have them on hand, you don’t have to add them.
