In its raw form, the humble potato doesn’t look like much. But honestly, when it comes to this tuber vegetable, the limit truly does not exist. It can be anything and everything, and it works in pretty much any dish, with any flavor profile. Its potential truly knows no bounds. And that means that it is, of course, one of the most popular vegetables in the world. In the US alone, more than 95 percent of Americans eat potatoes around twice a week, according to the Idaho Potato Commission.

While they don’t count as one of your 5 A Day (an incredibly sad fact of life), potatoes are still pretty good for you. They’re a good source of fiber, for example, and they also contain vitamins and minerals, like vitamin C, vitamin B6, and potassium. For more on the nutritional value of potatoes, check out our guide here. But if it’s just recipes you’re after (and we don’t blame you), check out our list below for some of the best ways to make use of potatoes. Our stomachs are rumbling already.
