Cooking potatoes in the Thermomix® is child’s play. We’ll show you what you need to keep in mind during preparation.

Boil potatoes, but why?

You should never eat potatoes raw! The abundant starch in potatoes makes them very unpalatable. Only by cooking is the starch changed, and thus more easily digestible. Raw potatoes also contain the alkaloid solanine, which accumulates mainly under the skin in green and sprouting areas.

Did you know that the solanine is the natural pest protection of the potato? This is not good for you either!

Tip for quick potato pilling

The quickest and most effective way to peel potatoes is to “quench” them under cold water. Before cooking, cut once around the potato with a knife so that a small cut is made around the skin. After cooking, place the potatoes in cold water until you can comfortably hold them in your hand. Then take each potato and simply peel off the two pieces of skin.
