Spuds on the Menu: 5 Ways to Cook Potatoes as a Side 🥔

Spuds on the Menu: 5 Ways to Cook Potatoes as a Side 🥔

Because fried fish without chips and a stew without roasted wedges is just not worth getting excited about. Carb haters will find it hard to grasp the modest brilliance in a potato-based side-dish. The way I see it, you can hardly go wrong with a dish that boasts some palatable potatoes on the side. However, you can always think outside the box to take your common potato and turn it into something that stands out. Here are some different and delicious ways to cook spuds. 💌

Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Honey, Butter and Lime 

Creaminess, crunch and a lot of flavours are guaranteed with this one. The best thing about this dish is the addictive contrast between the natural sweetness in the potatoes and acidity in the lime. Take your tastebuds on an adventure by adding in a little honey and butter, and you’ve got yourself a winner. 🍠

Roasted Garlic Butter Potatoes

If you like garlic bread, you’ll simply love this one. The best way to go about this is to slice some slits in your potatoes and fill them with butter and diced garlic cloves. Rubbing on a little bit of butter on your potatoes’ surface before popping them in the oven will make them extra tasty. Once ready, season with salt and chopped fresh basil and get ready to be wowed. Mix it up with different variations like the lush image below!🧄


Pro Tip: when it comes to chopping up garlic gloves, make sure to give them a small smash with your hand to unleash more flavours and for an easier chop!

Homemade Bacon Wrapped Fries 

Your movie night snack dilemma just got solved. I’d recommend cutting up your own fries (in large slices) instead of buying pre-made oven chips. This makes it easier to wrap each one in bacon slices. The most important thing you’ve just got to do with this taunting cheat dish is to go wild with sauces and dressings - you won’t regret it. 🥓

Greek Yoghurt Potato Salad

It’s healthy, fresh and absolutely appetising. Generously add Greek yoghurt and extra virgin olive oil to your boiled potato chunks (I like throwing in a hard-boiled egg as well for an added creamy consistency!). Once you’ve got your base, bring your potato salad to life by adding in some peas, finely diced onions, parsley, basil, salt, pepper and some fresh lemon or lime juice if you’re feeling a little fancy. 🇬🇷

Creamy Potato Soup with Nuts and Seeds

This meal has the potential to get even your kids excited about soups. Intrigued? Make this soup as creamy, cheesy and carb-packed as you like with the amount of potatoes and cheese you’d like to add to it. Topping it with grilled nuts and seeds, especially walnuts and almonds will make this dish stand out. 🥜
