Are you ready to try 21 (we had to add and extra) of the best vegan potato recipes? You’ll find everything from potato wedges, fries, salads, soups, and appetizers. Many of the recipes are great for a simple meal or the holidays.
Are Potatoes Good for You?
Potatoes get such a bad rap.
The reason is because they’re deep fried or filled with dairy butter and cheese, and other high calorie and saturated fat ingredients.
Our potato recipes are dairy-free and many are oil-free, so you can feel good about eating them.

What are the Best Potatoes for Cooking?
That all depends on what you’re making.
For hearty soups, you can use pretty much any potato.
If you're making fries or stuffed potatoes, we like russet/Idaho potatoes, because they have a high starch content and are firmer.
For mashed potatoes, Yukon gold is king. They’re creamy and have a buttery flavor.
Finally, if you’re making a sweet potato recipe, then of course, choose a sweet potato.

The secret to getting these oil-free fries crispy is lemon juice.
