31 Vegetarian Potato Recipes to Make a Meal Out of
Need some inspiration for what to do with potatoes? Want to make them the star of the show and not just a side dish? We’ve got you covered! This collection of vegetarian potato based meals has something for everyone. From hearty comfort foods, smaller plates, soups and curries, tacos and even pasta dishes, the humble potato can be made to shine in a variety of different cuisines.
This is a carb lovers dream, right here. I compiled this list after receiving a gigantic order of farm fresh potatoes which I am hoping will help see me through this fateful summer of 2020.
Potatoes keep well, they are filling and reasonably nutritious, they are versatile and I love them. They are gluten free, so goodness knows if I woke up one day with a gluten intolerance, they’d be my new go-to comfort food staple once I mourned the loss of pasta.
Like my other favorite humble staple, the lentil, potatoes can work themselves into many different types of cuisine. We have tacos, curries, bakes and casseroles. We have baked potatoes with topping ideas for every mood.
So dive in, get bookmarking and pinning, and enjoy!
