These are delicious and make great leftovers, so you may want to make extra. Peeling the potatoes just around the center also makes a pretty presentation for a special meal.
Wash potatoes, trim off any dark spots and cut in half. Heat large skillet to medium heat and add oil and onion. Cook until onions are soft and light brown, then add garlic. Add potatoes and lightly sprinkle with salt. Toss until potatoes begin to stick to the pan. Add vegetable broth and seasonings. Pour in enough water that potatoes are almost completely covered. Bring pot to a boil and cook until potatoes are tender but not falling apart. Add chives and chopped parsley and taste for salt, pepper and seasonings. Cover and remove from heat. Reheat when ready to serve.
Red potatoes are low-starch, firm-fleshed and slightly sweet. They hold together well and keep their shape.
Toss drained boiled potatoes with pesto for a different zesty flavored dish.
