10 Ways to Use Potatoes
Some recipes for potato fritters, such as latkes, start with uncooked potatoes. Other pan-fried potato cakes, such as croquettes and aloo tikki, combine cooked, smashed potatoes with other ingredients. Typically fried, many of these can be baked for a lower-fat version, although the texture may be different. The food magazine Saveur offers a recipe for tackling röti, the Swiss version of hash browns.
Cooks have been puréeing potatoes into soup to thicken the texture for years, yet potatoes can also hold their own as a silky and satisfying soup. Garnish a puréed potato soup as you would a baked potato. Also, consider adding potato chunks for extra bulk in any soup or stew recipe to increase the comfort factor.
