Recipes with Potatoes (gluten-free)

As a dietitian, I feel like potatoes have been dragged through the mud lately. And I know because of diet culture, a lot of you will cringe even thinking about focusing on recipes with potatoes.

But here’s the thing, potatoes are affordable, nutritious, and a great way to stretch meals. This is especially true if you need to be gluten-free So here are 40 recipes with potatoes (all gluten-free too because I’m a celiac dietitian!).

Using Potatoes in Recipes

Like I mentioned before, cooking with potatoes helps make meals more affordable and stretch them. Not only that but potatoes have gotten an unfair reputation for being “empty calories”.

First, there’s no such thing as “empty” calories. Food has a wide array of things to offer us and just because food might not be nutritionally equal to glorified raw celery juice, doesn’t mean it’s worthless. Food can offer us comfort, connection, community, memories, celebration, and more.

But more importantly, potatoes actually have a lot to offer nutritionally. They shockingly are technically a complete protein. That’s right, potatoes have all of the 13 essential amino acids, which is pretty amazing since usually, it’s just animal products that boast that.

Additionally, potatoes have more potassium than a banana! Bet you didn’t know that either. And more importantly, potatoes offer us an essential nutrient: carbs. Carbs or sugars are quite literally essential for human life. In fact, glucose (sugar) is the brain’s preferred energy source, and when we aren’t eating enough glucose our body works hard to make it from non-carb sources (like protein).

As a Swede, where all my school lunches were literally some new form of potatoes every day (it was seriously impressive), I’m ready to share with you the beautiful ways you have to use potatoes in recipes.
