foodie: grilled potato packets

because of the outrageous heat waves we've been having here in the northeast, i was reluctant to cook indoors the other night.  (our tiny cottage heats up fast if the oven goes on...)  so, instead, we fired up the grill and had a vegetable feast!  one thing that i was particularly excited about was the potato packets i made, so i thought i'd share the recipe : )

here's what you'll need for 4 packets...

1.5 lbs baby new potatoes, halved
1/4 cup good mustard (i used grainy horseradish mustard)
2 tbsp dry white wine
2 tbsp olive oil
2-3 garlic gloves, chopped
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
plain greek yogurt or sour cream
salt & pepper
4 1ft by 1ft foil squares coated with non-stick spray

1. in a bowl, whisk together the mustard, wine, oil and garlic.  add in the potatoes and cilantro and toss.  season with salt & pepper.

2. evenly distribute mixture between the 4 foil squares, and fold into secure packets.

3. cook over medium-heat on the grill, preferably on the upper rack, for 25 min or until fork tender.

everyone gets their own packet, and once they dump the contents onto their plates, they can top it with plain greek yogurt or sour cream...or pesto...or tapenade...

we enjoyed our potato packets with grilled spring asparagus, crisp romaine salad and grilled portabella caps topped with tangy bleu cheese : )
