Baked Potatoes Primavera

Microwaves get a bad rap for cooking, but with tasks like baking potatoes, they’re brilliant. A microwave can save you time and produce a potato that’s just as hot and fluffy as the oven. Topped with sour cream and your choice of frozen veggies, this fresh take on baked potatoes is worth a try.

Ingredients

  • 4 russet potatoes
  • 4 cups frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1¼ cups fat-free sour cream
  • ½ tsp. oregano
  • ½ tsp. basil (or 1 tsp. of favorite no salt seasoning)
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • Pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Pierce each potato several times with a fork. Microwave on high until tender (4-5 minutes per potato).
  2. While potatoes are cooking, steam mixed vegetables according to package directions.
  3. Mix the sour cream with the herbs, salt, and pepper.
  4. Split the potato in the center and fill with steamed veggies. Top with herbed sour cream and serve hot.
