Vegan roast potato salad Recipe
Throw some chickpeas into the roasting pan, and top the whole thing with some dry-fried smoked tofu, and that’s over a third of your daily protein needs taken care of right there! Add some of my carrot bacon plus shaved ribbons of raw kohlrabi and summer squash, and you’ve just taken care of all of your Vitamins A and C needs for the day.
I call that a total win, don’t you?!
Vegan potato salad
It’s no secret that I love a good potato salad, especially when it’s a loaded potato salad … all those yummy fresh vegetables and herbs – so deelish!
Having a large part of my garden dedicated to growing potatoes means that recently I’ve been making all the spuddy things… good thing I love these not-so-humble tubers so much, eh?
Let’s face it though, who doesn’t love potatoes? I mean, barring medical reasons, there’s got to be something a bit wrong with a person if they don’t like ’em, right?
Potatoes are one of the most versatile veggies known to man; they’re easy to prepare; they’re really frugal; very filling; full of goodness; and are utterly divine when mashed, fried, or roast.
le sigh! Yep, I love spuds!
How to make roast potato salad
Making this roast potato salad takes a little bit of time, although actually, most of it’s taken care of in the oven, so apart from prepping the veggies, there’s not really much to do by way of cooking, and the whole thing is so easy.
Once you’ve prepped your veg, boil the potatoes for about 15 mins until soft, chuck them onto a large baking tray, along with the other vegetables and some chickpeas. Season, add a few herbs, and roast for around 30 minutes.
While that’s all cooking, dry-fry the tofu, and cook the quinoa, and then when it’s all ready, pile the whole lot into a large bowl, add the shaved veggies, some carrot bacon and kale chips, sprinkle over a few seeds, and enjoy!
