Why Potatoes Are the Perfect Plant-Based Sides Solution

Share This Post

As consumer demand for plant-based and clean label products continues to rise, it’s important for operators to adapt their menus with versatile and convenient ingredients that won’t cost them time or labor.
Growing preferences towards plant-based and flexitarian diets – as well as sensitivities and intolerances – can be hard to appease and many traditional sides aren’t making the cut. Today’s operators don’t have the time or labor to spare on making several different options from scratch, so finding versatile products and ingredients that can meet a variety of needs is now more important than ever.
Potatoes provide the perfect solution. A vegetable at their core, there are endless possibilities to serve delicious sides and creative entrees across all day parts, formats, and cuisines. Paired well with plant-based proteins – potatoes are deliciously adaptable. Serve mashed or hashed as traditional sides; use to build up delicious bowls; or get creative with salads.
Even better, the speed-scratch options available to chefs and operators today provide them with a versatile range of great-tasting potatoes that stand up to the modern flexitarian diets of today’s guests – while cutting back on time and labor in the kitchen. This speed-scratch convenience empowers chefs to create plant-based dishes with confidence, while saving time and money over fresh, frozen, or refrigerated alternatives.
