The final result
- A small (or not so small) potato
- A microwave
- Some plate, tupperware or anything that can go inside the microwave
- Paper towels
- Salt, or some sauce
- About half an hour, maybe less.
Put the plate inside your microwave for around 3-5 minutes at full power (mine is a 700W microwave). After one pass they'll look something like this:
Looks like they are boiled, don't they?
By now they will be harder and drier
Done! Lesson: always keep an eye on them
Finally move them to where you will be eating them, and add some salt, or olive oil, or as I did: some good sauce (in my case, romesco):
Add some sauce and they are great.
This procedure is not anything like frying, in fact it is just dehydrating potatoes. And this implies this can be done to "almost anything"... I think I'll try some zucchini next time, or maybe mushrooms.
