9. INDIAN-INSPIRED FISH AND CHIPS ~ Fish and chips are a match made in heaven, especially when eaten by the sea. For a tasty update, give yours an Indian-inspired makeover. The fish is battered in a chili and gram flour mix, making it gluten-free, while for the fries, Maris Piper potatoes are sprinkled with ground turmeric and salt for a flavoursome bite. A side of piquant chutney, in place of the typical tartar sauce, seals the deal.
10. INDONESIAN POTATO SALAD ~ A recipe full of exciting Indonesian flavours, this warm potato salad is known as gado gado. A combination of potatoes, green beans, beansprouts and peanut-coconut dressing, this one-tray dish will brighten up any meal. You could jazz things up with a jammy boiled egg, fried tofu, shredded Chinese leaf cabbage or some prawn crackers on the side.
11. LOADED BAKED POTATOES ~ It's a universal truth that a baked potato is one of the most comforting foods in the world, and its appeal comes down to its addictively crisp outside and soft and fluffy inside. Take your baked potatoes to the next level by adding a Mexican-inspired twist in the form of cheese, jalapeños and sour cream.
12. LOADED POTATO SKINS ~ Nothing screams comfort more than creamy mashed potato and crispy spud skins. Simple, delicious and filling, you can easily adapt the flavours to use up whatever other ingredients you have lurking in your fridge. A brilliant one-tray dish, it's perfect as part of a meal or just a snack on warm summer evenings.
13. MISO-TAMARIND ROAST POTATO WEDGES ~ Potato wedges come in all varieties: chunky, petite, crispy, spiced - but these miso-tamarind roasted wedges are unlike anything you've had before. Miso and tamarind combine to give the potatoes a wonderfully piquant glaze that, when served with a side of garlic mayo, oozes perfection. Serve with a garden salad, or just get stuck in.
14. MOROCCAN SWEET POTATOES ~ Let the aromas of cinnamon, garlic, cumin and ginger fill your home - and bellies - thanks to this delectable recipe for Moroccan sweet potatoes. The sweet potatoes are baked for 45-60 minutes, until tender to the fork, then loaded with cooked lentils, a whole medley of spices, and a tasty tahini dressing.
15. NEW POTATOES WITH PICKLED SAMPHIRE AND SORREL ~ Waxy, mellow potatoes, like Jersey Royals, are the stars of the show in this delicious dish, while the salty and sharp pickled samphire and citrusy sorrel enliven things further. When making this dish, be sure to wait for the spuds to cool fully before combining with the sorrel leaves so they maintain flavour and the bright green colour.
16. NIÇOISE BAKE ~ Imagine all those flavours we love in a classic Niçoise salad - new potatoes, anchovies, olives, eggs and green beans. Mix them together, add a punchy dressing, top with cheese and bake until bubbling. This hearty and warming riff on a classic salad is ready in less than an hour and is great for a family mid-week meal.
