TIP OF THE DAY: Herbed Baked Potato

Love a baked potato?

Love it even more with a sprinkling of your favorite fresh herbs or spices. They add a rush of flavor and aroma with virtually no calories.

Herbs are also very nutritious, adding vitamins and minerals to the meal.

  • We love the classics: shredded basil; snipped dill, chive and rosemary; chopped parsley
  • To spice it up, try a combination of crushed red pepper and fresh-ground black pepper
  • If chives aren’t enough for the onion lovers in your household, use sliced green onion or chopped red onion

 

You can serve one or more herbs in ramekins and let everyone customize his/her baked potato. While the photo shows a light sprinkling, pile up as much as you like.

Another nutritious, low-calorie tip:

Substitute nonfat Greek yogurt for the sour cream. It’s very creamy with no fat or cholesterol. Most Greek yogurt is very low in tanginess as well, making it even more like sour cream. Try it!
