Potatoes with Herb Sauce

Potatoes with Herb Sauce

I like to call this: minimalist cooking. This potato recipe is one of the most simple recipes we've ever made at A few ingredients and 3 easy steps will get you the most delicious dish you can make in 15 minutes.

Maybe you are a newbie in the kitchen, or cooking is not your cup of tea, or you just don't have a lot of time on your hands. This potato recipe is a great option! You will keep your belly full with some incredibly delicious food without the need for long hours in the kitchen. 

We know that for a good amount of reason we are not able to spend a lot of time cooking. In our hectic schedules, sometimes all we want is food in our bellies. Here it is when it is easy to fall off the vegan-wagon, or end up getting some fast food that we later on regret eating. 

Potatoes with Herb Sauce ingredients

With this recipe you will have no excuses, it is seriously that easy to make. Also, who doesn't love a big batch of potatoes? And these ones come drenched in an amazing homemade herb sauce and some lentil sprouts to top it off.

Our potato recipe is inspired by the classic German cuisine. Back home it is very common to see potatoes served with quark, which is something very similar to cottage cheese. So, of course, we need to switch a couple of things to make it vegan-friendly.

I like to say this is a minimalist recipe since it is not only easy to make but also because it is made with very few ingredients. Each ingredient will add everything you need in a meal. From carbs to protein, vitamins, minerals, we even have a drizzle of healthy fats. 

First of all, we have potatoes, one of the most affordable and readily available vegetables you will ever encounter. In Germany, you find potatoes in every direction you look at. I believe that it's the main reason why this dish is so popular, we are never short on potatoes.

Also, potatoes come with a good amount of nutrients. They are starchy and a great source of carbohydrates with no fat, sodium, nor cholesterol. If you are looking for a good source of potassium, vitamin C, B6, fiber, or antioxidants, potatoes are super rich in all of these. But keep the skin! That's where you will find a lot of these nutrients. 

The sauce has only three ingredients and you can have it done in merely 2 minutes. The original recipe is made with quark, so we are using soy yogurt instead. We just need to add black pepper and a few garden herbs and that's it. Your sauce is ready!

Last but not least, the lentil sprouts and a drizzle of flaxseed oil. I like to add these toppings just before I put the potato dish on the table. That way the sprouts are nicely stacked on top of everything and they are as fresh and plump as possible so everything looks pretty and taste amazing!
