5 Easy Potato Dinners


When in doubt about what you want to eat for dinner, bake some potatoes - It is always a winner, at least for me. Potatoes are so filling and incredibly easy to spice up and down with different dishes on the side. And if you make extra potatoes you have lunch for the next day - which is always great!

You can get the full eBook in Danish here or you can preorder the English version here and get three recipes already. But let's get into how to make the potatoes and a few suggestions on what you can eat them with: 

How to make the potatoes: 
Preheat the oven at 200 degree Celsius. Peel, cut, put them in a bowl, add 1-2 tbsp. melted coconut oil, your favorite spice and mix. Put on a baking sheet lined with baking paper, make sure they do not overlap or touch. Bake in the oven for 30 - 40 min. - but keep an eye on them. 

You can also make them without oil. When you want to add the spice lightly wet the potatoes to make the spice stick to the wedges. Otherwise make them how you normally would. 

1. Potato wedges and garlic mayo
Can it be easier than just potato wedges and some garlic mayo? I think not. Simple and classic. This is definitely the lazy 'I just wanna eat' option but with a good spice for the potatoes and a lot of garlic in the mayo it is always absolutely amazing. Click here to get the recipe for the amazing garlic mayo. For some extra veggies, add a salat on the side. 

The spice I have used for the potatoes here:

The Mediterranean sea spice:
3 tbsp. dried tarragon
3 tbsp. dried oregano
3 tbsp. tbsp. dill
3 tbsp. dried thyme
1 tbsp. dried rosemary
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. dried lemon zest in strips 

Crush the lemon zest. Mix the ingredients well and store in an airtight container in a dark cabinet.

Use 2 tbsp. of the mixture + 1 tsp. Himalaya salt per kg. potatoes.

2. Potatoes, baked veggies and garlic mayo
I recently shared this amazing onion/tomato/garlic veggie dish which you can find by clicking right here and it works so well with potatoes. And let's not forget about the incredible garlic mayo. Throw some garlic and paprika powder on to the potatoes to go with the veggie dish. If you want to, add a salat on the side for some extra veggies. 

The spice I have used for the potatoes here and the rest of the dishes:

Italian spice:
4 tbsp. dried basil
5 tbsp. dried oregano
2 tbsp. dried thyme
2 tbsp. dried marjoram
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. dried rosemary
½ tsp. dried sage
⅛ tsp. coriander powder

Mix the ingredients well and store in an airtight container in a dark cabinet.

Use 2 tbsp. of the mixture + 1 tsp. Himalaya salt per kg. potatoes.

3. Potatoes and baked onion
I have and always will love onions. Raw, baked, cooked, they are amazing with everything. Baked onion can be quite sweet so to balance it out choose a savory spice for the potatoes - again, add a salad for some extra veggies if you feel fancy. Not only are they delicious but they are also incredible easy to make: 

How to make the baked onions
Use as many onions as you would like. Peel and cut them into quarters. Put them in a bowl. Melt 1 tsp. coconut oil in the oven and pour over the bowl with the onion. Stir until every piece is coated. Pour the onion on to a baking sheet lined with baking paper and sprinkle on some salt. The onion must not overlap on the baking sheet. Bake with the potatoes at 200 degrees Celsius for about 30 - 40 min. 

4. Potatoes with baked broccoli and garlic mayo
I think I was one of the few kids who actually liked broccoli, correction; loved broccoli.  I still do and frequently add them to my dinner. Here they are with some potato wedges and some garlic mayo. You can choose to spice up the broccoli or just crop them up and throw them in the oven as they are - that's how I prefer them but you do you. Bake them, when they are frozen, for about 30 min. at 200 degree Celsius and you are good to go. 

5. Potato wedges, a salad and guacamole
What is a vegan food post without some avocado? I don't think it exists to be honest. Here I ate potatoes with a small salad and some guacamole which is so easy to make! All you need is 1 ripe avocado, 1 peeled garlic glove, a bit of lemon juice. 
You can either mash the avocado, press in the garlic with a garlic presser and mix in the lemon juice or you can blend everything into a smooth cremé and you are good to go. If you want to spice it up add some chopped onion for some texture and flavor. The salad, if you can even call it that, is just cucumber, spinach and a tomato. 

Which one do you want to try?
