Perfect Idaho® Potato Pairing… Basil

Crisp, green, leafy, fresh basil is the perfect flavor enhancer for almost any potato dish. A pinch of this sweet, sometimes pungent popular herb can transform an ordinary dish to extraordinary. Six tablespoons of basil are blended with fresh and dehydrated potatoes to create delicate Whipped Tomato and Basil Potato Cups that can accompany any main course from filet to fish. Chopped basil is sprinkled on a serving of Gnocchi with Mussels and Clams to add flavor and a dash of color. With Idaho® potatoes and basil, the opportunities are endless.
