It’s no surprise that potatoes are one of the most versatile foods ever! You can use them for countless recipes and they’re also a staple ingredient in many vegan recipes. Another best thing about potatoes is that they are pretty cheap, rich in potassium, calcium, vitamins, magnesium and more! Plus, you can buy them all year round!

I always associate potatoes with comfort food. There’s something so simple and special about taking a couple of potatoes, sprinkling them with olive oil and some yummy seasoning, putting them in the oven and done, your perfect comfort meal is ready! They’re so easy to make and the results are super delicious and enjoyable, regardless of your chosen cooking methods. You can fry them, make gratins, casseroles, bake them or even boil them and make the classic mashed potatoes – the sky is the limit here, really.
