RECIPE PREPARATION Baked potatoes with leurda:
The potatoes are cleaned, washed and sliced into larger pieces.
Put in a pan, season, put the oil and 200 ml. the water.
Cover the pan with foil and put in the oven.
After 30min. remove the foil and leave a little to brown.
When they are browned, leave them to cool a little and place the leurda on top, washed and finely chopped.
Serve with pickles or lettuce.
Preheat the oven. In a large saucepan with salted water, scald the new potatoes. Put them in a strainer to drain, then place them on top of a hot saucepan to steam dry.
Crush the leurd leaves with a little coarse salt in a mortar. Add a generous amount of oil and mix until you get a paste, then rub the potatoes with this composition.

How to make baked potatoes with cheese - How to prepare
We will start by washing and peeling the potatoes and garlic. The potatoes must be sliced into thin pieces because otherwise they will not intertwine and you will have a dish that will not be cooked enough. Also, try to cut them about the same size so that the whole dish cooks evenly.
You will prepare a mixture with the help of cream, garlic and spices. Garlic will also be grated. You will start by putting the potato slices in a tray, over which you will put this previously prepared mixture.
On top of that I like to mix a little cream for cooking with cheese and put them, but if you are not a fan of cheese and you find the recipe too greasy, you can just put a little butter. We will put them in the preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius, for about half an hour.
You will check if the preparation is ready with a fork by pressing on them. If the fork easily enters the dish, then the baked cheese potatoes are ready!
Ingredient Pesto de leurda
- 200 grams of leurda leaves
- 100 grams of raw almonds (this is what I used, but pine nuts, cashews, hazelnuts or walnuts can be used just as well)
- 75 grams of finely grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 coarse salt powder
- 120 ml. of extra virgin olive oil (or other good quality oil you prefer, for example rapeseed oil)
- optional: juice from 1/2 lemon, not necessarily, but it seems to me that a little acidity balances the final taste of the sauce
How do we recognize and harvest leurda and in what period?
The actual preparation of the pesto de leurda sauce does not take more than 10 minutes. What is very nice is that everything starts with a lovely walk through the forest. Perhaps even nicer is that this leurda pesto is an adaptation of a classic recipe to local ingredients, moreover, ingredients from the spontaneous flora of our country.
The taste of leurda is delicious, an intense and spicy garlic taste. It is worth starting in March and April in search of young leaves! They grow spontaneously in the shade of deciduous forests. The elongated leaves of leurde resemble those of tears, which are toxic. Fortunately, the danger of confusing them is very small. Only the leaves of leurda smell strongly of garlic, those of tears do not. Therefore, we will only harvest the leaves that have this pronounced smell of garlic.
From experience I tell you that I consumed leurda even after flowering. At that time, the taste is less intense, but more delicate. We must keep in mind, however, that an important part of the active principles of leurde will have disappeared from the leaves at that time (May-June).
Ideally, leurda should be eaten raw. This is how it will keep its precious properties intact. Even if they are heat treated, however, they will be quite valuable. From the raw leurda leaves you can make an excellent salad and I made a delicious pesto, whose recipe I propose below.
How to prepare Pesto de leurda
Once the precious leaves arrive home, they are picked and washed well under a stream of cold water in a strainer. Shake well and then toss between two kitchen towels, pressing lightly.
Almonds (or the type of nuts you use) are blended with finely grated Parmesan cheese. Add plenty of salt and leurda leaves. It will not enter the whole amount of 200 grams at once, you will have to add the leaves in a few tranches.
As well, however, all the ingredients can be crushed in a pestle mortar.
Finely mix all the ingredients, adding the leurda leaves in turn. After the rest of the ingredients are finely chopped, add the oil, little by little. Mix every time you add oil, until you get a fairly fluid paste consistency.
How is it stored?
Once the desired consistency is obtained, the pesto is poured into a jar and covered with a film of oil. Store the sauce in the refrigerator for up to 6 weeks, provided that each time you remove a quantity of sauce, which remains perfectly covered by oil. That film of oil, which insulates the air preparation, is essential for our leurda pesto to keep well. The leurda pesto can be packed in smaller pots and frozen for several months.
What do we use leurda pesto for?
What can pesto be used for? Boil pasta al dente. Drain them, add 2-3 tablespoons of leurda pesto and about 50-60 ml. from the water in which they boiled the pasta. Mix well and get a portion of delicious pasta. In the image below you can see a delicious portion of spaghetti with leurda pesto and a lot of parmesan.
Season with pesto sauce without leurda baked or boiled potatoes. Mix a tablespoon of leurda pesto with 1 small glass of fatty yogurt and get a delicious grilled meat or vegetable sauce. And I'm sure you have your own ideas! Have a nice walk in the forest, increase your picking and be careful not to meet the bear: P!

Are you sure you just want potatoes? Not that they wouldn't be good.
For some simple baked potatoes it looks FFFFFFF good! worth trying,)

ehee today I start with these potatoes, I'm curious how they are with thyme: -? I'll be back with an answer after dinner :))
result: yummy! I also added garlic. I can't do without :)) potatoes without garlic. can't: & quot & gt: D: & gt: & gt
:))) It means that you just invented a new recipe: P I'm glad you liked the potatoes, I just hope you didn't put the garlic to get rid of the taste of thyme :)))

You got used to eating potatoes like that, so it will be hard for you to change your habit :) One thing is clear: you definitely have a good immunity :))
If we give up the toxic vegetable, the liver enjoys it even more
More than likely, but a lot of people are addicted to flavor enhancers. I try, as much as possible, to use fresh vegetables. But in winter, the food just doesn't taste the same if we don't "help" them a little. Obviously, it is up to everyone whether or not to use such a thing)
