Helpful hints

  • Potatoes are very high in potassium but you can remove part of the potassium by using one of these methods:
    • Double cook method: Peel and dice potatoes. Place in a large pot of water and bring to a boil. Drain the water and add fresh water to the pot. Bring to a boil, cook for 10 minutes then drain and set aside.
    • Leaching method:  Peel and dice potatoes. Place in a large pot of warm tap water and soak for 2 to 4 hours. Drain and set aside.
  • Skip step # 1 if you are not on a low potassium diet.
  • Omit salt if adding other sodium containing toppings such as gravy, salted butter, etc.  Sodium content per portion is 37 milligrams prepared without salt.
  • Frozen cauliflower can be substituted for fresh.
  • Freeze extra portions for later meal.  Reheat in microwave.
