Potatoes have a bad reputation in some circles, but they actually add quite a bit of nutrition to a meal. One medium red spud contains 154 calories, 3 grams of fiber, 36 percent of your daily vitamin C needs, 27 percent of your daily potassium needs (more than bananas!), and a slew of B vitamins. Many of these nutrients, including fiber and some iron, come from the potato skin, so feel free to keep them on.
Storage: Place airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
To freeze, place freezer-safe containers in the freezer for up to 2 months. To defrost, refrigerate overnight. To reheat individual portions, microwave uncovered on high for 2 to 2 1⁄2 minutes.
TOBY’S TIP: To minimize food waste, add leftover vegetables like carrots, beets, or Brussels sprouts to this mix.
