Baby Potatoes are often sold in microwavable plastic bags, already washed and ready to be cooked. We can eat the skin as well, so those small juicy potatoes are perfect for busy people. They go so well with any seasoning, but have you tried them with this sweet miso sauce?

Salt for cooking Potatoes
1 tablespoon Canola Oil / Sesame Oil
