Potato Salad for the Lactose Intolerant
Having to live with the condition of lactose intolerance can be quite a stressful situation. Luckily, there are easy vegan recipes like this Potato Salad for the Lactose Intolerant to make your love for potato salad come alive. It`s a delicious potato recipe that uses a dairy-free sour cream substitute as a salad dressing. For some of us that are used to having potato salad with mayonnaise or sour cream, this is another great variation that cannot go wrong. Comfort foods need not be elaborate recipes with an endless list of ingredients. The flavors are delicious in this salad with a little bit of tang, and the creamy texture just makes it all special with just seven ingredients. The potatoes are cooked until creamy and tossed in the seasonings and then chilled until ready to be eaten. The best part about this delicious potato recipe is that you can also eat it while it`s still warm and fresh. Nothing will stop you from enjoying it the way you want. Always remember to toss the potatoes with the dressing while they’re still warm. This step will keep the potatoes moist and prevent them from drying. If you are lactose intolerant and want more salad dressing ideas that are dairy-free, you can try mashed avocados. The consistency and texture of mashed avocados are just like mayonnaise. The subtle taste of avocados is great because you can add any seasonings of your choice to make it taste as per your preference.
Potatoes over a period have gained a bad reputation for being part of a starchy food list, but in reality, potatoes are typically fat-free, gluten-free and cholesterol free. There are many potato nutritional benefits including potassium, iron, and vitamin c. Potatoes also have the kind of essential carbohydrates your body needs. Did you know that one serving size of six small potatoes has an approximate of 120 calories? That’s pretty fantastic compared to eating refined carbs like bread or pasta. With all the essential nutrition in potatoes, it's a good idea to include them in family meals. To prevent the potatoes from discoloring add the potatoes to a big bowl of water once peeled. This method prevents the oxidation process in potatoes and stops them from turning brown. When you`re finally ready to cook them, drain the water and use as usual.
If you want to change up the flavors just a little, you can try other spices like a pinch of cayenne pepper, Cajun spice, or even cumin powder as well. Spices have anti-oxidants in them, and just a pinch is a nice way of sneaking in the extra nutrition in salad recipes. If you like to add a bit of crunch, you can chop up red, yellow and orange peppers and add them to this salad. For protein, add black beans, chickpeas, fresh green peas, etc. to make it extra wholesome and nutritious.
