Lebanese Potatoes

Lebanese Potatoes Side Dish

It’s early December, and we’re in smack in the middle of potluck season. Cheesy and creamy dips, chocolatey desserts and all the meatballs can be so tempting, but they don’t have to be off limits. A little bit of moderation and one dish you can rely on for healthy satisfaction can be the key to finding your balance.

That’s why I love these Lebanese Potatoes. They’re a great potluck dish or potato side dish for any meal.

Perfect for Potlucks

Potatoes don’t have to be covered in cheese or whipped with heavy cream to be delicious. Russets have a naturally pillowy, mild flavor that can be dressed up very simply for a clean, mouthwatering dish that guests and friends will adore. This recipe is extremely dynamic and works not just through the holiday potluck  and entertaining season, but also through the summer grilling season. Next to a pork loin, prime rib, grilled chicken, and even a rack of ribs, my Lebanese Potatoes compliment so many entrees, and they’re always a hit.

How to make Lebanese Potatoes

Lebanese recipes go back thousands of years, and they really showcase beautiful flavors. It seems unbelievable that such delicious food could be so good for you, but the cuisine from Lebanon relies on healthy fats like olive oil –very rarely butter or cream–  and techniques like grilling and baking for proteins.

Because this Lebanese Potato recipe is gluten free, dairy free, vegan and sugar free, and you cannot go wrong with it for a potluck!
