Helpful hints

  • Double boiling potatoes reduces potassium content. A second method is to peel and soak potatoes in water for 2-4 hours before cooking. Skip this step if yu do not require a low potassium diet.
  • Dried dill weed can be substituted for fresh dill weed. As a general rule, use half the amount because dried herbs are more potent.
  • Frozen green beans may be used instead of fresh.
