Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil Baked Potatoes

Sun-dried tomatoes, basil, and tangy capers are a great alternative to traditional baked potato condiments like sour cream. For the best nutritional value, choose the dry sun-dried tomatoes rather than those packed in oil.

Tip: Cooking potatoes in the microwave is fast and easy. For the best texture, be sure to use 50% power.

Ingredients

  • 4 med. russet potatoes
  • 6 sun-dried tomatoes
  • ¼ cup sliced fresh basil
  • 1 Tbsp. capers
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • Pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Pierce potatoes all over with a fork. Place in the microwave and cook at 50% power until potatoes are tender (20-25 minutes). Stop every 5 minutes to rotate potatoes and check for doneness.
  2. While the potatoes are cooking, pour boiling water over sun-dried tomatoes in a small bowl. Let soak until soft (5-10 minutes). Drain and slice.
  3. Combine the tomatoes, basil, capers, garlic, and oil in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Serve over the baked potatoes.
