Healthy Vegan Potato Recipes

1. Vegan Mashed Potatoes

Let’s start with one of most people’s favorites: mashed potatoes.

They’re creamy, fluffy, light, buttery, and delightful in every way. And these vegan mashed potatoes are no exception.

You won’t use butter or milk to make them – and you won’t miss them either.

The rich flavor of chives and roasted garlic infuses every bite of these potatoes. They’re thick and savory, and pair well with almost any main dish.

2. Air Fryer Potato Wedges

These Air Fryer potato wedges are well-seasoned with perfectly crispy outsides. Their insides, though, are soft, fluffy, and tender. 

It takes just five minutes to prepare them and another 30 to cook them.

They’re a terrific side dish and even work well as a snack.

3. Vegan Potato Curry

Curry is an excellent option when you’re in the mood for lots of flavor. And believe it or not, you don’t need chunks of chicken or lamb to make it filling.

This vegan curry is herby, spicy, and simple to make. It takes about an hour to pull together and is very versatile.

You can enjoy it by itself, with vegan naan bread or over rice.

Like all curries, it has a distinctly Indian taste. Luckily, it’s mild enough that even the staunchest American food lovers can appreciate it.

4. Scalloped Potatoes

I know, I know! At first glance, this dish isn’t vegan-friendly.

However, it easily can be. 

You’ll need to use dairy-free milk and butter – everything else stays the same. 

With those simple swaps, you’ll have the most fantastic, creamy, and buttery potatoes possible.

In fact, I bet most people won’t even realize they’re vegan. 

Feel free to throw a little garlic into the mix, as well. Or better yet, try adding some thinly sliced onions in the layers.

5. Creamy Vegan Potatoes Au Gratin

There’s not a single bit of cheese in these au gratin potatoes. However, they’re so thick, creamy, and saucy that you’ll never know it’s not there. 

They’re a lot like the scalloped potatoes above, but these are much more herby and have many more seasonings.

Both options are so delicious that even non-vegans will love them.

6. Avocado and Roasted Potato Buddha Bowls

The roasted garlic potatoes are just one reason this Buddha bowl is so scrumptious.

There’s also creamy avocado, crisp lettuce, zesty lemon juice, and more. 

This bright, colorful dish is a fiber-packed lunch option that’s full of healthy goodness.

It’s one of those meals that makes you feel more virtuous for eating it. Fortunately, it also tastes great.

7. Vegan Potato Cakes With Rice

These are like a cross between potato latkes and rice cakes, and I am here for it!

They’re crunchy, veggie-packed treats with fewer than 60 calories per serving, and they make a great on-the-go snack or vegan side dish.

Best of all, they take just five minutes of prep time and are ready in 20. 

8. Roasted Potatoes and Broccoli {Vegan + Gluten-Free}

This dish is delicious. There’s no exciting description needed because it’s awesome.

It’s vegan-friendly, gluten-free, and it’s insanely good.

The potatoes have crisp skins and are wonderfully seasoned. The broccoli is tender and tasty, with just enough remaining crunch to be perfect.

It makes a great side dish for any occasion. Fortunately, no one will blame you if you decide to make it the main course instead.

9. Aloo Pakora (Indian Potato Fritters)

These are hard to describe to someone who’s never had them. That’s because there’s nothing else like them.

The soft golden batter on these fritters will practically melt on your tongue, and they’re delightfully herby with a yummy Indian kick.

Easy to make and even easier to eat, they might be deep-fried, but they aren’t greasy or heavy.

Give them a try the next time you’re craving easy-to-make Indian food. They also make great appetizers. 

10. Vegan Twice-Baked Potatoes

I could eat a dozen of these cheesy twice-baked potatoes in one sitting.

They have all the comforting warmth of baked potatoes, plus a hint of garlicky goodness.

Start with this microwaved baked potato recipe, then bake them quickly to get the skins crispy. It’ll cut the recipe prep and cook time in half!

11. Air Fryer Baked Potatoes

Most people love baked potatoes, but the cooking time stinks. After all, if you want them crispy on the outside, they need to bake for a while!

Luckily, you can cut the whole process down to 45 minutes with your Air Fryer.

Your potatoes will look, feel, and taste just the same, but you’ll shave off at least 15 minutes – more if you microwave them for a few minutes first!

12. Crispy Roasted Potatoes & Carrots (Air Fryer or Oven)

Roasted veggies are one of my all-time favorite side dishes.

This one features roasted potatoes and carrots and is effortless to make. 

Each piece is scrumptiously crispy and covered in herbs. As a result, you get the maximum amount of flavor for minimal effort.

I like to make this kind of dish on busy weeknights to serve with a store-bought rotisserie chicken.

13. Vegan Potato Soup

Vegan potato soup may not be as creamy as traditional potato soup. However, it tastes even better, so I think it’s a fair trade-off. 

The broth is a little thinner than usual, but you’ll make up for that by loading it with beans and chunks of celery, onions, and carrots. 

Additionally, the sun-dried tomatoes and herbs give it an incredible flavor. It’s garden-fresh and delectable.

Whip it up on a cool night if you want something warm and comforting. And don’t forget the crusty bread!

14. Aloo Baingan Recipe Curried Potato Eggplant

Here’s another delightful Indian dish that’s entirely vegan-friendly.

It reminds me of a heartier version of eggplant parmesan, and not just because of the eggplant!

It’s tomatoey, garlicky, and full of robust seasonings. The potatoes give it more oomph, and the green chiles add spice.

Still, if you like one, you’re sure to enjoy the other.

15. Vegan Potato Cakes

These herby, earthy potato cakes are crispy patties of deep-fried goodness.

The outsides are so crunchy, but, surprisingly, the insides are soft and chewy.

It takes 15 minutes to whip up a batch, and they’re always a big hit. That creamy cheese filling hits the spot. 

16. Batata Harra Skillet Potatoes

These bright, zesty potatoes might just be the most flavorful dish on this list.

They just have so much great stuff in them, including lime juice, dill, red pepper flakes, garlic, coriander, turmeric, and more.

It doesn’t matter what tastes you like best – spicy, savory, salty – these potatoes have them all.

You don’t have to be a fan of Middle Eastern cuisine to enjoy them, either. 

Everyone I know who’s tried them has loved them. And that includes my 68-year-old “I only eat American!” uncle.

They’re that good.

17. Mexican Fiesta Baked Potato

How do you make an already delicious baked potato even better? By loading it with the finest Mexican ingredients, of course! 

Throw in corn, black beans, salsa, scallions, and anything else you like. It turns your traditional baked potato into a veggie-packed and flavorful delight.

18. Korean Potatoes (Gamja Jorim)

These sticky potatoes are the epitome of sweet-n-salty yumminess.

The soy sauce, honey, and garlic combination couldn’t be tastier. It gives the potatoes a distinctly Eastern flavor that you can’t help but love.

Add some green onions for flavor and sesame seeds for crunch, and you’re all set.

19. Vegan Hash Browns

Do you ever get too old to enjoy waffle-style hash browns? If so, I haven’t reached that point yet.

And these vegan ones are even better. 

They’re practically everything-free. There’s no soy, eggs, meat, sugar, cholesterol, or dairy. 

You have to admit, that’s pretty impressive.

That said, they certainly aren’t flavor-free. They’re crunchy, salty, and potatoey – just like hash browns should be.

20. Vegan Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherd’s pie is the ultimate comfort food, especially in the winter.

Everything from the fluffy mashed potato topping to the rich sauce is tasty.

Add enough veggies to make a rabbit envious, and you just can’t beat it. It’s hearty, delicious, and nutritious.

Who can say no to that?

21. Two-Bite Vegan Baked Potatoes

These bite-sized baked potatoes make the ideal appetizers.

They’re cheesy and garlicky; plus, you can add any toppings you like to customize the flavor.

The only bad thing about them is that they’re pretty addictive. You’ll wish they were more than two bites after taking the first one.

22. Easy Homemade Vegan Gnocchi

I’ll be honest; I can’t tell the difference between vegan gnocchi and “regular” gnocchi. They’re both pillowy soft, mild in flavor, and delectable.

And with this recipe, they’re unbelievably simple to make, too.

You’ll need just four ingredients and 40 minutes. You’re welcome!

23. Crispy Fiesta Potatoes (Taco Bell Copycat)

Crispy, spicy, and perfect in every way, this Taco Bell copycat recipe is everything you could ask for in a potato dish.

They take a smidge over an hour to make, but you won’t mind. The fluffy insides complement the crunchy outsides flawlessly. 

And the herby, spicy seasonings will delight every taste bud you have.

My only advice: don’t make these for company. Make them for yourself only because you won’t want to share.

24. Vegan Ajiaco Soup

Did you know you can make vegan Ajiaco in one pot in a single hour? 

It’s warm, comforting, and wonderfully filling.

Its odd mixture of ingredients gives it a tangy, salty, and earthy flavor that nothing else can compare to.

Serve it with zesty cream, capers, and avocado for the whole experience.

25. Simple Vegan Potato Salad

Vegan potato salad is just as saucy and chunky as its non-vegan counterpart. It’s tangy and full of garden-fresh veggies. 

It’s a delightful summer side dish that tastes fantastic with barbecue or burgers.

26. Homemade Baked Potato Chips

If you’re looking for something crunchy and salty, look no further. This is the recipe for you.

These homemade chips are a 30-minute snack that needs just three ingredients. 

They taste even better than bagged potato chips and are much less greasy. Additionally, you can add whatever seasonings you like to customize the flavor.

27. Vegan Deviled Eggs

You can’t be a vegan and enjoy deviled eggs, right? 


These vegan deviled eggs use baby potatoes instead of eggs, and they’re the bomb.

In terms of texture, I prefer these. They aren’t as slippery and soft as boiled eggs.

And while the taste isn’t precisely the same, it’s still amazing. These babies are tangy and zesty, and you can customize them with all kinds of herbs and spices.

28. Vegan Garlic Parmesan Potato Stacks

These are like little, portable scalloped potatoes. Doesn’t that sound phenomenal?! 

Single-serve scalloped potatoes with exceptionally crispy edges, and they’re covered with cheese?

I can’t get enough of these tasty treats. 

They make fantastic appetizers. Of course, if you want to make them just for you, I’d completely understand.

29. Chili Cheese Fries with Vegan Cheese Sauce

These are chili cheese fries, plain and simple. They have everything you’d want in chili cheese fries with twice the flavor. 

Some vegan dishes are obviously vegan. However, this is one I’m not sure you’d know was vegan if no one told you. It tastes just like the real deal. 

You’ll love it so much that you’ll want to lick the plate clean.

30. Vegan Breakfast Potatoes

If they weren’t so carby, these salty, garlicky potatoes would be a breakfast staple in my house. I could happily eat them every day!

They’re tender, flavorful, soft on the inside, and taste incredible with any traditional breakfast food, be it sweet or savory.

Try them; you won’t be able to get enough. 

31. Vegan Caramelized Onion Mashed Potatoes

These creamy mashed potatoes are tasty enough on their own.

But when you add caramelized onions to them? Forget it. Say goodbye to the possibility of leftovers because there won’t be a scrap!

These are fancy and impressive enough to serve for Thanksgiving dinner.

Fortunately, they’re not too hard to make, so you can have them more than once a year.

32. Coconut Sambal Potatoes

These potatoes are tangy, spicy, and covered in sauce. They’re an interesting dish that tastes even better served over rice. 

The spice in these is pretty noticeable, though. So you may not want to try them if you don’t enjoy a bit of heat in your food.

33. Creamy Pumpkin Potato Soup

Why limit yourself to pumpkin or potato soup? Instead, use this recipe and enjoy a combination of both!

It’s creamy, thick, and gorgeous – just look at that golden color!

You can make it in 30 minutes with just five ingredients.

It’s luscious and comforting and the ideal fall soup. I like to serve it with thick, dark bread, but a side salad works, too. 

34. Best Greek Lemon Potatoes (Whole30, Vegan)

These may be Greek potatoes, but they taste more Italian to me.

They have a bright, zesty flavor tempered with the earthiness of oregano and black pepper. 

The turmeric is optional, but be sure to add it. It gives the dish an even lovelier golden color and adds another depth to its flavor.

35. Easy Vegan Poutine

First of all, I’m not going to candy-coat it: this dish takes some work to pull together.

It’s not especially difficult, just a bit time-consuming. 

You’ll have to chop your potatoes into tiny, thin strips. Then, you’ll have to make the gravy, which is a multi-step process.

But don’t let that scare you away!

Vegan poutine is a must-try for any potato lover. Actually, who am I kidding? Vegan poutine is a must-try for anyone who loves food of any kind.

It’s so insanely delicious, every bite is like a taste of heaven, and your taste buds will go nuts.

It’s delectable and decadent, and you’ll have a tough time stopping at just one portion.
