Baked Potatoes with a Green Sauce

A most healthy way of eating baked potatoes.


  • 4 large potatoes, cleaned
  • 2 green or red peppers
  • 1 green chilli
  • Handful of parsley or coriander, chopped
  • 8 oz (225 g) Greek yoghurt
  • 3 tablespoons chicken stock


Bake the potatoes in the usual way.

While they are cooking, prepare the green sauce. Take the seeds out of the peppers and chilli and chop very finely. Add to the herbs and mix with the yoghurt and chicken stock.

When the potatoes are ready, put into a cloth and just ‘burst’ the tops. Put a spoonful of the sauce into each potato and serve.

The late Dr Tarnower of the Scarsdale Diet allowed his dieters one potato a week – at Monday lunchtime – accompanied by the ubiquitous cottage cheese.
