One of the most versatile and nutritious side-dishes readily available in most kitchen pantries is the potato. Baking a potato retains the flavor without adding fat or calories, and potatoes can be served on the side or dressed-up as the main attraction. A medium, skin-on potato has about 110 calories, 3 g fiber, 3 g protein and is a good source of potassium, vitamin C and B6. Potatoes are also a great source of antioxidants. Baking a great tasting potato does not require an oven.

Step 4

Grill potato for 45 minutes.
