Lately I’ve been all about exploring potato concepts. For the longest time I honestly overlooked them, but you can play around with flavor profiles and make endless combinations.
One of my favorite herbs is dill. While you’ll find it more in seafood concepts, you can add it to countless dishes and it really creates more flavor dimension. I love to use it in mediterranean and greek dishes, and throw in salads with greens or chickpeas. You can’t go wrong!
As a person who is all about everything lemon, you guessed it, I wanted to explore Lemon + Dill Potatoes, but really packed the flavor. A lot of times there isn’t a enough of it and I knew we could elevate the flavor, but just making a few changes to the typical recipe. And just like that, the best vegan Lemon + Dill Potatoes were born!
What’s great about this dish, is as I always say, everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, packs flavor, comes with the perfect sauce, has notes of dill and rich notes of lemon, can easily be made in bulk, are perfect for any season, great for entertaining and can pair well with just about any main dish!
