Everyone loves potatoes, and in this article, we’re going to be showing you 15 delicious vegan potato recipes — yum.
Potatoes are one of the best comfort foods. They’re so incredibly versatile. They can be crunchy, soft, smooth, anything you can dream of, a potato can be. So, what exactly can make with potatoes? Pretty much, everything.
You can make mashed potatoes, a thanksgiving classic, or fries, an American staple. There are even wholesome dishes like casseroles, soups, and stews, which I could eat all year round. Although, most people consider them winter recipes, so what about summer?
Well, of course, you could stick with basics, like boiled potatoes, but we think you’re more creative than that. What about hassle back potatoes, or potato crust pizza?
If you haven’t gathered, we’re pretty potato mad here. Can you blame me? Potatoes are one of the best vegetables!
Plus, on a vegan diet, potatoes are incredibly vital. They are a good source of carbohydrates and can help add calories to meals. While you might be thinking that’s a bad thing, it’s not. You need a certain amount of calories to be healthy and to lose weight. Don’t be afraid of potatoes, they can only help!
Anyway, with that said — let’s get back to the main point, showing you 15 delicious vegan potato recipes!

Frequently Asked Questions
Will Eating Potatoes Make Me Gain Weight?
A lot of people ask this question, and the short answer is no, it won’t.
There have been cases where people eat only potatoes for a whole month, and no weight has been gained. It’s not a healthy diet, so I don’t recommend it, but I’m just saying potatoes aren’t the problem, carbohydrates are not bad!
The issue is if you consume too many potatoes, filled with butter, oil, etc. It would be really difficult to eat that much potato though, so generally speaking, no, please happily eat your potatoes.
What’s The Best Way To Make Potatoes?
Well, that depends on personal preference.
Some people love roast potatoes, some people like smashed potatoes, and some people just prefer their potatoes to be infused with other ingredients.
Personally, mashed potatoes are my favorite. There are so many ways to make them! I love it when they’re covered in butter and milk, with a little of salt and pepper, and some chives. I’m already hungry.
Will These Recipes Surprise My Meat-Eating Family? I Want To Wow Them!
Yeah, a lot of these recipes will surprise meat and dairy eaters.
People are often surprised at the power and taste of vegetables. All of these recipes are delicious, and you will surprise a couple of people. You can’t change someone though, so you shouldn’t really go in with that headspace.
It’s perfectly fine, however, to show that eating vegan can be just as delicious, and show your family that eating vegan food can be fun and exciting.
