These Boiled Potatoes are a staple in our home. We boil an entire 3 pound bag and keep them in the refrigerator for side dishes and snacks. Sometimes I get hungry mid-morning or mid-afternoon and have a couple small potatoes to tide me over until the next meal.
Potatoes have gotten a bad rap from mainstream media and low-carb diets, but they’re extremely healthy and great for weight loss because they’re high fiber and low calorie. For detailed information about the health benefits of potatoes, read “The Starch Solution” by Dr. John McDougall.
We like to top them with salsa, hot sauce, Vegan Cashew Cream, Vegan Cashew Sour Cream, Potato Cheese Sauce, Grandpa’s Dipping Hot Sauce, lentils, leftover Vegan Chili, non-dairy yogurt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, turmeric, chili powder, or anything else we can think of.
This recipe uses red potatoes, but we also use the same recipe for Yukon gold potatoes, sweet potatoes and our favorite: Japanese Murasaki sweet potatoes.
