I am starting a new cooking inspiration series while on Covid-19 isolation. We have all run out to stock up on the essentials but then what? For a while, I kept seeing that potatoes were out of stock. So, when I finally found some, I went overboard.
So, this new series will be focused on such “overstocked” pantry and fridge items that you might struggle to find creative ways to use. First up: potatoes.
A Nicoise Salad is a place to use your potatoes…just boil them until soft and add them to your salad.
Pesto Potatoes. I halved baby potatoes, drizzled them with olive oil, sea salt, cajun spice and lemon juice, then tossed it all with pesto. You can make your own, or use store-bought.
Coconut Curry is one of my comfort foods and the soft potato is the best part.. Pinch of Yum has a great recipe to use up your potatoes.
Shepherd’s Pie is a childhood fave of mine. Make it with lentils, tofu, Beyond meat or ground turkey. Either way, the mashed garlic potato topping is the bomb.
French-style Potato Salad is a dairy-free, fresh twist on a summer go-to. Loaded with fresh dill, spicy mustard and green onion, Minimalist Baker nailed this recipe.
Any other potato ideas? Share in the comments below. Stay tuned for more in this series.
