Why I Love This Recipe

A great side dish can turn a plain old weeknight dinner into a crave-worthy meal. But let’s be real, most nights just getting something on the table feels like a win. This delicious side dish recipe takes only 20 minutes to prepare and works perfectly with chicken, beef, pork or fish. So versatile! Using new potatoes is part of this recipe’s charm. Tender young potatoes don’t require peeling or chopping, and they cook quickly. Combining fennel seeds, fresh fennel fronds and a squeeze of citrus brings a punch of flavor to the dish. The subtle fruity flavor of coconut oil provides a mellow background that brings it all into balance.


Ingredients You'll Need

Yield: 4 servings

1 ½ lbs. new potatoes, washed but not peeled
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons Coco Treasure Unrefined Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
1 teaspoon fennel seeds
¼ cup fennel fronds, chopped
The juice and zest of one lime
Salt and pepper to taste


Directions

Directions:


1. Boil potatoes in salted water until they are fork-tender, approximately 15 minutes.


2. While the potatoes are cooking, heat coconut oil in a skillet. Add the fennel seeds to the hot oil and toast for 2-3 minutes or until the seeds become fragrant. Do not brown the seeds or overcook them. Remove the pan from heat when done.


3. Drain water from the potatoes and smash them lightly. Return potatoes to the hot pan. Add fennel and all the oil, lime juice and zest, chopped fronds and salt and pepper to taste. Stir to mix.


Serving Suggestion: Serve this side dish piping hot or thoroughly chilled. It makes a delicious and unusual version of cold potato salad. Don’t know what to do with the leftover fennel bulb after you used the fronds? Clean and chop the fresh fennel and stir it into the chilled potatoes. The slightly sweet, anise-flavored vegetable will add crunch and fresh summery flavor to the salad.
