Turmeric Cream New Potatoes

Yes, I know the colours appearing on my blog are a bit in your face , but honestly its not been intentional on my part it just happens that the dishes I have been making want to show off.  Such as the Black Sesame Seed Butter and my various Beetroot Curries, and now Atomic Yellow new potatoes described this way by my husband.  
I would describe these shockingly yellow potatoes as Dauphinoise style potatoes coated in a rich cream turmeric sauce.   Although not necessary, I think it needed a bit more substance, so I stirred in some veggie meatballs and I was pleasantly pleased with the way the whole dish turned out.  All that was required was some greens on the side to tone down that yellow glow warming your face.

I hope to make the Turmeric Cream again and in place of the new potatoes, it will be pasta. 

I am sharing this with Tinned Tomatoes for Meat Free Mondays.

    1. Thank you, I have no doubt that you could make this vegan.

  2. Looks delicious & a fabulous use for some of the new potatoes I still have in storage - the meatball addition is inspired!

    1. I hope you like if you do make them Margaret, but they were pretty unctuous!
