Don’t throw away sprouted potatoes! Even sprouted or pruney potatoes have their purpose! Here are our top 5 ways you can use up these versatile spuds.
1. Make Soup
Leftover cooked potatoes can be added to soups to thicken them. Accidentally oversalted your soup or stew? Add in a raw cut up potato and save the day.
2. Mash & Freeze Them
Make mashed potatoes and freeze the leftovers. Defrost them overnight and use them in shepherd’s pie or other dishes to save yourself a ton of work. Russet potatoes are a good choice here; Yukon Gold potatoes sometimes get a more gummy texture in mash, although you can adjust the consistency by adding more liquid.
3. Crisp Them
Potato skins can be repurposed to make oven-baked potato chips! These chips are full of fibre and packed with nutrients. Simply take your peels, toss with olive oil and salt, spread in a single layer on a baking tray and bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 mins.
5. Enjoy In A Cold Potato Salad
Make use of your leftover cooked potatoes by whipping up a simple potato salad.
