Potatoes with Fresh Garlic and Sage

Succulent. Scrub the potatoes but no need to peel them, those skins have loads of flavor, texture and nutrition.

Prep time:  10 minutes
Cook time:  10 minutes
Serves:  2-4

4 tablespoons olive oil
4 small (pool ball size) organic new potatoes cut into 1/8" slices
1 stalk spring garlic thinly sliced (or 1 clove garlic, crushed)
4 tablespoons chopped fresh sage

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat.  Add the potatoes and the garlic and cook for 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally, or until potatoes are tender.  Remove potatoes to a serving plate.

Turn heat to med high, and if necessary add a little more oil.  Fry sage for about 30 seconds, or until crisp.  Remove to a paper towel to drain and cool enough to handle (will only take a few seconds), then chop the sage leaves, sprinkle on top of the potatoes, and serve, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper.
