IHCC & CC#21: Braised potatoes and lettuce

Very simple ingredients, new potatoes (used whatever potatoes I had on hand), carrots, spring onions, cilantro (for garnish), vegetable broth (cube), water, salt and pepper!
Cook the skinned (or washed unskinned, if you prefer), quarter them, in vegetable broth (with carrots) till tender.  Do not use too much broth, the idea is to end up with well-reduced broth.  Add the lettuce and spring onions, cook for a couple of minutes more. Season to your taste with salt and pepper. Simple!

For September's Monthly Featured Dish/Ingredient Challenge, it's time for Potatoes!

I am co-hosting Cookbook Countdown together with Joyce of Kitchen Flavours.  If you are like, who love to collect cookbooks and have an overcrowding bookshelf (or bookshelves!), yet most of the books have not been used at all, now is the time to change that.  Join us at Cookbook Countdown!
