Recipe Tip:

Use the whole scallion, both the white and green parts. Substitute cilantro or mint for parsley.

Good for You:

Potatoes are a great source of potassium, which can help prevent muscle cramping.

Shop Smart:

It’s important not to keep potatoes in a lighted area because the exposure to light will decrease their shelf life.
