Like other potato varieties, red potatoes come packed with starch — a concentrated source of energy — and contribute a significant amount to your daily carbohydrate intake. Red potatoes also contain vitamins and minerals, which make them a beneficial addition to your diet.
Boil, bake or steam red potatoes for optimal health benefits. Other cooking methods, such as frying, require the use of added oil. Steam chopped red potato until very tender and then use them to make skin-on mashed potatoes — the red skin adds visual interest to your dish. Alternatively, lightly steam chopped red potatoes, until just tender, and then use them to make potato salad. For a heartier side dish, suitable for cooler weather, lightly coat chopped red potato with a mixture of olive oil and rosemary, and then roast until golden brown.
