Yukon Gold Potatoes are still potatoes so they’re definitely gonna be good! You can also pair them with juicy meatballs. Now, in a large saucepan, cover the potatoes with cold water, add the 2 tablespoons of salt and bring to a simmer. Cook over moderate heat until the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. Then drain in a colander and let stand for 3 minutes to dry out. Return the potatoes to the saucepan and add the olive oil, lemon juice and parsley. Season with salt and mix and crush gently with a wooden spoon.

The rice own its own is mouth watering enough but with pumpkin and spices, it’s just what our festive tongues need. For this unique twist, the first step is to melt the butter. Then, add the cumin and mustard seeds and cook over high heat until the mustard seeds begin to pop. Add the rice and diced squash and stir to coat with the butter, add the water and salt and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over very low heat until the squash is tender and the water is completely absorbed. Voila! Ready to serve!
