My older daughters and I have been making creamy new potatoes for nearly two decades. When we first started making the dish, the recipe was entirely vegan. We used Follow Your Heart Veganaise and a plant-based butter substitute.
If you are vegan, you could certainly swap out those two ingredients and it will be absolutely delicious.
Similar to creamed potatoes but also slightly reminiscent of potato salad baby potatoes are fork-tender and oh so tasty! This recipe doesn't depend on whole milk, sour cream, heavy cream or any other type of dairy product to lend creaminess.
We've always used small red skin potatoes in this recipe and I don't recommend using large potatoes. Leave the peeling on, it is full of nutrition and adds texture and taste.
Red potatoes are particularly healthy because of the thin, nutrient-filled skins, which are loaded with fiber, B vitamins, iron, and potassium. Half of the fiber of a potato comes from the skin. On red potatoes, in particular, the skin is already super thin, so it doesn't detract from the taste or textureBlack Gold Farms
This potato salad is delicious hot, cold, or room temperature and packs well for a potluck or gathering. Pairs well with other veggies such as green beans and can easily be made on the stovetop while you are preparing other dishes. Put the potatoes in a beautiful serving bowl and sprinkle it with chives. If you don't have chives, fresh parsley works too.
Always use low heat when keeping cooked potato dishes warm since they are so easy to scorch.
If you don't have red new potatoes, we've also used gold baby potatoes and they are quite yummy.
For a little flavor boost, you could sprinkle with black pepper and a pinch of paprika.

Hope you'll give this recipe a try. To be honest, I put it on my website so I wouldn't have to search for the paper recipe anymore. This year, 2020, I have been decluttering (probably along with the rest of the world) and I decided to eliminate all of my handwritten recipes.
This is one we still love and hence its appearance here.
