Potato Skillet

My solar cooked potatoes

We have a nice vegetable and fruit wholesale group here. For something like $15, you get a basket of assorted fruits and vegetables that are supposed to be worth $50 retail. I don’t think it’s quite as good a deal as they advertise, but the food is good, and it is a savings. The catch is that you never know what you will get. So some weeks you get your basket and end up Googling the picture of your fruit to try to figure out what it is, or you spend time trying to Pinterest a kumquat recipe.

This week we got all easy identifiable foods, which was good. Our basket included several potatoes. I decided to see if I could solar cook the vegan equivalent of a western skillet. Potatoes take forever to cook on the stove or in the oven, so I left them to solar cook while we went to church. I was happily welcomed home to a cooked potato lunch!

Potato Skillet

2 potatoes, cubed

salt and pepper

1 onion, chopped

1 green pepper, chopped

Mix together all the ingredients in a glass dish, moisten with some water, and cover. Solar cook for a few hours until the potatoes are all soft.



Rating: Okay. I added lentils the next day and served it to the kids with ketchup. They loved it, although they love anything with ketchup. You don’t get the crispy fried outer skin to the potatoes that you would get if you did a traditional skillet, but it was good all the same.
