Light Potato Bake

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Jubes

This is a 'Boulangere Potato" dish. It is thinly sliced potatoes baked with garlic and liquid stock. For a gluten-free diet ensure that the stock used is gluten free- I use Massell brand (it's also lactose free and suitable for vegans). A variation on the dish is after cooking sprinkle with some grated light cheese and grill or return to the oven until the cheese melts. Alternatively you can use sliced kumara or a mix of potato and kumara

This gets 4 stars because the family was split on it. I tripled the garlic and 2 of us liked the dish, while the other 2 still found it too bland. Nice, easy and healthy. Made for ZWT 7 - Food.Commandoes
