I just bought 20 lbs of potatoes at a good price 98 cents. When I brought them home my husband wanted me to make something with them that he could microwave later as a snack or as part of a meal. He suggested making twice baked potatoes and freezing them, Maybe scalloped potatoes, boiling potatoes in small chunks and freezing them later for mashed or potato salad. I would appreciate some suggestions about this. Particularily about making the baked potatoes, and scalloped potatoes that I can freeze and eat later. I have found several recipes for twice baked using spinach, brocolli and chunks of mushroom. No way, I want something more down to basics. Maybe using vegan cheese, vegan cream cheese, or topped with panko or bread crumbs or nothing at all. I want the insides flavorful and vegan. He loves garlic. Sooooo anybody have something I can use?
Make soup! Find a really groovy dairy-free cream of potato soup and make a massive batch of it. This is the most satisfying way to use up produce and eat as you can pop the soup in the refrigerator to thaw in the morning and heat it up in the microwave or on a stove-top once you get home! It's the most stress-free way to eat on a busy schedule.
Also, make some potato wedges and freeze those. They're a fun snack and if you're having veggie burgers one night, there's one side dish already done!
Potatoes Chopped Onion or Leek Chopped garlic Water or veggie broth Sea Salt and Pepper to taste
Cook until veggies are tender add Soymilk to make it creamy and cook on low another 5 minutes! Serve with a sprinkle of Vegan mozzerella. Add a piece of vegan cornbread on the side!! Even my kids beg for more!!! We reheat the leftovers for lunch the next day.
We actually just ate this over the weekend. Always a GREAT way to get rid of potatoes before they go bad :-)
Thank you so much for your response. The soup is one of the things that i was thinking of. Now as far as the potato wedges go, I think I should partially cook the potatoes, put them on a cookie sheet, gather them up then put them in a plastic bag. Also i don't think I have to peel them before making the wedges. I think I'm going to start in on this project tonight after work. Anybody have a recipe for the scalloped potatoes? Thanks again.
