There are many reasons to love potatoes. They are cheap, available year-round, and can be found in nearly any grocery store. Potatoes are versatile with so many ways to prepare them, and this list of 25 amazing vegan potato recipes contains some of my favorite potato recipes ever!
In my opinion, potatoes should be a nutritional food group all their own. I love them just about any way they can be made–boiled, baked, steamed, grilled, mashed, air fried, sauteed, and any other way you can think of.
One of my favorite kitchen appliances for cooking potatoes is my air fryer because it makes cooking so easy and completely oil-free.
Are potatoes good for you?
Sometimes potatoes get a bad rap because some people say they are not healthy. Turns out, that’s completely false because potatoes are actually loaded with fiber, protein, and a host of important vitamins and minerals.
Potatoes are so versatile and can be used to make soups, stews, side dishes, appetizers, main dishes, and even desserts.
