This is one of the EASIEST side dish recipes EVER! I came across this years ago and when I’m in a pinch for a potato side dish, this is the one that always bails me out. The reason it is super fast? You steam it all in the microwave in ONE bag! Simple!
The first thing you want to do is dice up an onion and about 4 medium size red potatoes. Cut the potatoes in to bite size pieces.
Place the potatoes and onions in a microwave steamer bag. Make sure not to fill it over the appropriate fill line for that size of bag. I usually use a medium size bag for our family of 4. Then you will add the remaining ingredients. Make sure to move the ingredients through out the bag after your seal it so all pieces are coated.
Place the bag in the microwave and cook for approximately 7 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender. Once you remove from the microwave, I usually put the potatoes in a bowl and stir gently to make sure all pieces have some of the “zesty” on them. You can add some diced green onions on top for additional flavor and give it a little more color.
