Week Three: Ingredient Challenges
Making the humble potato the star of the show.
Considering I shared a potato-centric recipe just the other day, indulge me in a little fun today. I’m going to propose a day wherein one eats potatoes FOR EVERY MEAL! Just white potatoes. No sweet potatoes, yams, or any other sneaky tubers. It’s starchy white potatoes all the way through.
Start your day the potato way — with vegan Irish potato farls! A favorite from last year’s VeganMoFo, these pan-fried triangles of potato-y dough make for a real stick-to-your-ribs breakfast. Pair them with some kind of vegan sausage for added Irishness, and be sure to have a pot of tea on hand.
Other breakfast options:
May I suggest an unorthodox option? Make potato salad your main meal and pair it with a protein side (a veggie burger patty, bunless?). Alternative: If it’s a chilly day, how about hot soup? This creamy caramelized potato-onion soup should fit the bill!
Other lunch options:
No question — I’m going with my spicy potato casserole! It’s a tasty, filling, and unexpected take on a gratin-like dish. Make your own tofu chorizo or use store-bought.
Other dinner options:
Mashed potato candy?! I’ve never tried it, but it’s a thing!
So. Would you try an all-potato day? What dishes would you include?
