Potatoes are a great nutritious food choice for a healthy diet, but if you need more flavor in your life, then add this creamy parsley potatoes recipe to your culinary recipe box. This Danish potato dish is the perfect side dish to serve with grilled meat or fish.

– 2 pound [0.9 kg] potatoes  – 1½ teaspoon of salt, divided – 2 large carrots – 4 tablespoons of butter – 1 large white onion, cut into slices  – 1 tablespoon of all-purpose flour – 2 cups of whole milk (whole or skim) – 4 tablespoons of minced fresh curly parsley – 1 teaspoon of sweet paprika – ¼ teaspoon of black pepper 


Cut the potatoes into quarters and the carrots into thick slices. In a large pot, boil potatoes and carrots in salted water until they are tender but firm (check with a fork), having added 1 teaspoon of salt to the water for boiling. Drain the water.

Step 1:

In a saucepan, heat the butter, over medium-high heat. Add the carrots and potatoes and cook and stir for two minutes. Set to medium heat. Add the onion and cook and stir until the onions are translucent.

Step 2:

Sprinkle the flour and mix thoroughly, be careful that the mix doesn't burn. Add the milk, and fresh parsley, and stir until the mix is uniform. Boil over very low heat until you obtain a rich sauce.

Step 3:

Season with salt, and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with paprika.

Step 4:

These creamy parsley potatoes go really well with my Danish-inspired cod fish cakes, air fryer chicken drumsticks, roasted chicken, turkey chops, and pork escalopes.
