Low Potassium Style Stewed Potatoes http://www.davita.com/recipes/vegetables/low-potassium-style-stewed-potatoes/a/5039

DaVita renal dietitian Sara from California shares a kidney-friendly potato recipe she created exclusively for DaVita.com. The high-potassium content of potatoes makes them risky for those with advanced kidney disease. But Sara’s recipe includes soaking potatoes to reduce their potassium content. This easy-to-make dish requires boiling soaked potatoes, draining them and then heating them with water, nondairy creamer, garlic (or onion powder), pepper and margarine until boiling. A mixture of flour and cold water is then stirred into potatoes and they’re cooked until thickened. This potato dish is suitable for those on diabetic, dialysis and CKD non-dialysis diets.
