With a slightly lower GI than desiree or pontaic potatoes they are better for managing blood sugar levels.
3 large cloves garlic
, thinly sliced
2 bunches asparagus
, chopped into small pieces
Heat the oil and sauté the garlic for 2 - 3 minutes. Pour 1 cup boiling water into the pan and stir quickly. Add the potatoes and bring the pan back to the boil.
Reduce to simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Add the peas and cook together with the potatoes for 5 minutes.
Finally add the asparagus, lemon juice and zest and mint and cook for a further 2 minutes.
Season with sea salt and black pepper and serve.
Note: Frozen peas are snap frozen from fresh and are equally nutritious are fresh green peas. They are even more nutritiously valuable if the fresh peas have been stored for too long.
