New Potatoes With Garlic, Mint and Butter

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 30 mins

Very popular in Australia when new potatoes are available.


  1. Bring the potatoes to the boil in enough lightly salted water to cover.
  2. Turn the heat to a very low simmer and cook until fork tender. This could take 30 minutes.
  3. Drain and add the butter, mint, garlic and salt and pepper to the pot. With the lid on, toss gently to cover the potatoes with the seasoned butter.
  4. Use parsley if you don't have or like mint, or use a mix of both if you wish.

These were very good potatoes. I used a mix of mint and parsley since my aerogarden didn't have enough mint yet. I especially loved the garlic in these which I allowed to heat up in them a bit at the end to get rid of that raw garlic taste. Very simple too!
