This is a super delicious side dish to a tofu scramble, a veggie burger, or even a starchy meal on its own. ;) Easy, quick, yummy!

Easy Pan-fried Potatoes

2-3 large Potatoes, chopped into cubes 
1/2 tsp Salt
1-2 Garlic cloves, minced (depending how garlicky you want them)
1 tsp Thyme
1 tsp Basil
1/2 tsp the following spices: oregano, cumin, turmeric
1/4 tsp black pepper 
Olive Oil
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil 

In a large frying pan, bring some water to a boil. 
Toss in your cubed potatoes and lit boil for a couple of minutes until the potatoes cook to a nice firmness--do Not overcook them, you don't want them fully cooked at this point, just enough so that you can poke a fork in them. 
Drain the water. 
Add your spices and the garlic and a touch of olive oil, sauté for a couple of minutes. 
Once the potatoes start sticking a bit, add your coconut oil and continue to fry until your potatoes are a lovely golden brown, stirring fairly frequently. 

The coconut oil adds a lovely flavour while also prevents the potatoes from sticking. I always make perfect pan-fried potatoes this method, though you do have to watch the first boiling step because if you overcook them at this step then the potatoes turn out a little more on the mushy side--though still taste amazing. 
Makes 4 small servings, or 3 larger portions.
