Parsley Smashed New Potatoes

Freshly dug, true "new" potatoes are so creamy and flavorful they hardly need any additional ingredients to make them spectacular. Here we tumble them with a bit of butter, tangy yogurt, scallions and just-chopped fresh parsley. If new potatoes are not available, use any small red potatoes.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds new or baby red potatoes, (1- to 2-inch diameter), large ones quartered
  • 2/3 cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 2 scallions, cut in half lengthwise and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 3/4 teaspoons butter, softened
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • white or freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions

Step 1
Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Add potatoes, cover and steam until very tender when pierced with a fork, 20 to 25 minutes. (Check the water level near the end of steaming to be sure the pan doesn’t boil dry. Add more boiling water as needed.)
Step 2
Meanwhile, combine yogurt, scallions, parsley, butter, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
Step 3
Mix the cooked potatoes into the yogurt mixture, breaking them up with a fork until they crumble apart and lightly clump together.
