Tri-Color Crashed Potatoes

January 22, 2010

This side is a completely colorful delicious starch to add to the plate. It’s impressive and easy at the same time!


  • 24 oz confetti potatoes
  • Salt, pepper
  • Paprika
  • Olive oil (about 1/4 c.)

Simmer or steam potatoes until tender. Remove from water and let cool.


Score the potatoes with a small “x” in the top. With the back of a wooden spoon, smash the potatoes to about 1” thickness. Either refrigerate to cook later, or proceed to next step.


Pre-heat the oven to 500* Drizzle potatoes with oil, salt and paprika. Bake in the hot oven for 10-2o minutes (until the skin and exposed flesh is crisp, but not burnt)


This recipe was inspired by Vegan Yum Yum
