Polish Dill Potatoes – Paleo/Whole 30

| | | | | |

If you have been following me for a while, then you know that my husband lived in Poland for most of his childhood. I went with him to visit and learn more about the country and more about my husband. And I fell in love, I mean head over heels in love. It is so beautiful, so rich in history and the food is out of this world. They use fresh ingredients to make the food shine. This recipe is so so simple, but the flavor of the dill knocks it out of the park.

Polish Dill Potatoes

 I am so proud of myself for these because my husband said they tasted just like the ones he grew up eating. These potatoes are a fun way to change up your side dish. I love potatoes, but it can get boring to make them the same way every time.

I know that these little potatoes can be a pain to peel, but I have tried this recipe with the peel on and it’s just not the same. It also might seem like a decent amount of salt but remember, you are only seasoning the outside of the potato.

This is a picture of the dill potatoes that I had in Poland. I have always been the girl taking pictures of her food 🙂

  • Add a pinch of salt to the water and bring to a boil

    Hi Sara
    My French teacher was surprised when I told her that in Polish cuisine, potatoes are cooked intelligently. Dill, according to one online source, assists digestion, helps with sleep, menstrual disorders and even, apparently, hiccups! Such a great aroma too. I love the spices in Polish food and that a little bit of vodka (and a bit more) makes all of it go down better, leading to riotously cheerful or contemplative meals. Am now inspired to ‘go find’ my nearest Polski Sklep, having relocated to an area with fewer skleps but more curry houses (other inspirations). Dziękuję bardzo!
