What’s to love about potatoes?

Potatoes are an ingredient that you should always have in your kitchen. If you’re ever not sure what to cook, a potato-based dish may be a great option for you. Potatoes are:

  • Versatile! You can boil them, roast them, bake them in the oven, or even use the microwave if you’re short on time. Then, use them as you wish to make a whole variety of creative plant based recipes.
  • Delicious. This goes without saying. In any form, potatoes are guaranteed to taste good without the need to add a lot of extra ingredients or spend hours in the kitchen.
  • Accessible. You can go to any supermarket, and find a wide variety of potatoes available throughout the entire year.
  • Budget-friendly. You can get potatoes at a very cheap price pretty much everywhere, especially if you buy them in bulk.
  • Long-lasting. Potatoes can be kept in a cool, dark storage cupboard for a long time without going off, and they can also be frozen very easily.

Are potatoes vegan?

Absolutely! Hence they’re a key ingredient in so many vegan recipes. Whether vegan or not, anyone that makes plant-forward meals also loves potatoes. But, not all potato recipes are vegan. A lot of them use dairy, eggs and other animal products, but the great news is that all of these can be easily veganised using just a few tweaks.
