Absolutely! Potatoes are a fantastic ingredient to include in your plant-based meals. And they are a healthy staple of a vegan Mediterranean diet.
According to Potatoes USA, there are over 200 types of potatoes available in the United States. These can be classified into 7 categories: russet, red, white, yellow, blue/purple, fingerling, and petite.
A new potato, also called a baby potato, is a potato that is harvested before reaching full size. They tend to have thinner skin with a waxy texture and a sweeter flavor.
Store potatoes in a cool, dry area of your kitchen, like a counter or pantry. Do not refrigerate uncooked potatoes. Keep them in a basket, box, or paper bag rather than a plastic bag. And do not store them next to onions, bananas, or apples because they will spoil faster.
