I’ve been summoned.

If you want to keep them for a while, using them as sides over the course of a few meals, I recommend slicing them up into fries and freezing them. If you’re into McDonald’s-style, short-term crispy, salty fries, check out J. Kenji Lopez Alt’s write-up here. Other potato sides can include:

  1. Straightforward roast potatoes (another write-up by Lopez-Alt on that matter here)
  2. Duchess potatoes (make-ahead duchess potatoes recipe here if you want to freeze a larger batch - personally, I much prefer duchess potatoes to a regular mash)
  3. Hasselback potatoes (found a somewhat decent Guardian article on this issue here)

Otherwise, if you want to use up the potatoes in a single dish, you can’t get any more sinful and decadent than a creamy gratin.

I also recently bought a book called ‘Smashed, Mashed, Boiled, and Baked--and Fried, Too!’ by Raghavan Iyer (Amazon link here) which deals with the topic of potato recipes specifically, and I can’t recommend it enough.

Wow, I am impressed with your passion for potatoes. Definitely bookmarking these recipes!

Hello, OP! I just realised the duchess potato recipe I shared is actually not freeze ahead (I can’t find a freeze ahead vegan recipe 😥). It’s still delicious, but be wary that freezing those might carry some experimental risk!

Roast potatoes with rosemary and garlic!

[–] Chopu [OP] 1 points (+1|-0)

I actually made this recipe last week! Such a classic. You can never go wrong with garlic and potatoes.

Aloo Gobi!

Pot Pie where the potatoes are the star!

Stamppot with fried onions and gravy on top (skip the rookwurst, I always did)! Make it like a KFC famous bowl but ethical!

French Fries!

Potato tacos!

A heaping bowl of vinegary potato salad!

Salad Nicoise sans animal products, extra helpings of pickled veggies, olives, and beans!

Ooh, I'd never heard of Stamppot before! Looks really creamy and filling. This is the recipe I found for anyone else reading this post.

[–] Alecto 1 points (+1|-0)

I really prefer kale as the green vegetable in my stamppot, but it is my favorite vegetable.

I made this potato and cabbage curry last month and it was so good.

Gado-gado & skip the egg - Indonesian tofu/potato/veg salad with peanut sauce.

Can't go wrong with sausage and mash, I put mustard in the mash and make a red wine and onion gravy.

I have actually eaten that Indian recipe before! But, the Indonesian one is completely new to me. Haha you are actually the second person to suggest cooking my potatoes with peanut sauce. I think that's what I will end up doing for dinner.

Oh, "aartappelgereg." Literal translation: potato dish. I know you're vegan, but I don't know what you usually swop out, so I hope it's okay I give you the basic version?

Boil the potatoes and cut I to slices. Arrange those in a deep dish. Mix cream (heavy cream? I've seen this in recipes and don't know what makes it heavy, sorry), salt, pepper, and powdered white onion soup, and pour over the potatoes. You can add some fried mushrooms. Sprinkle with cheese - whichever you prefer. Bake until the cheese is melted.

Also seen a version with some spinach, with the spinach slightly cooked beforehand.

Oh, nice. I'd never even heard of this dish before. I can easily get non-dairy cream and cheese where I am so I can definitely make this!

Oooh, I'm saving this thread! So many good ideas. My favourite way to have potatoes lately is to cut them into ~1/2 inch cubes, boil them, add them to a pan of sauteed onion and mushrooms and add some cashew cream (or other vegan cream) w/ just a little black pepper and nutmeg.

Here's an unhealthy thing we make with potatoes in my house: sautee potatoes and onions. Add a can of diced tomatoes and a can of rinsed chickpeas. Add maybe a cup of water. Bring to a boil. Stir in a generous spoon of chunky peanut butter--like a big glob, if you don't care about being healthy, like 1/3 cup. Turn down the heat. Cook in the PB so it's like a chunky stew. Remove from heat. Sprinkle in a generous amount of thyme. Peanut butter + tomatoes + thyme is so good, trust me.

Wow I want to try this lol. It sounds so good! How long does it take to make?

[–] Chopu [OP] 0 points (+0|-0)

You know you are making a lot of sense. I have seen peanut butter being added in many Asian recipes too. I need to try this.

[–] VeggieAnnie 1 points (+1|-0)

Yes, I also use peanut butter as a basis for something we call "Dragon Noodle" sauce. It's peanut butter and soy sauce and siracha...and maybe sugar? I can't remember. But it makes a kind of Americanized thai sauce that we toss over noodles.

aren‘t potatoes the best 😍 there‘s this turkish dish, called „Kumpir“ and it‘s sooo good. It‘s a large potato, filled with different vegetables, butter (it’s usually not a vegan dish, but one can easily veganize it) and you can fill it with jalapeños, corn, olives and many more things. I think there are plenty of recipes online.
