could someone direct me to some good potato recipes? I just bought 20 pounds of potatoes. I don't know how to search the recipe posts. Is there a way to search for the recipes for potatoes, or any other keyword, for that matter, in the recipe posts?

Serves 4
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cooking Time: 45 mins


500g baking potatoes, peeled, cut into large pieces
200g trimmed leek(s) finely chopped
75g curly kale, finely shredded
50g butter
2 tsp caraway seeds
1 tsp paprika
3 tsp wholegrain mustard
2 medium free range egg yolks
2 tbsp crème fraiche
100g vegetarian Applewood smoked cheddar, thinly sliced


1. Bring the potatoes to boil in a medium sized saucepan and then simmer slowly for 30 minutes until cooked. Drain and dry slightly in the pan before mashing or putting through a potato ricer.

2. Saute the leek and kale in half the butter until soft. Add the spices and cook for a further 2 minutes.

3. Mix together the potato, vegetables, mustard, egg yolk and crème fraiche in a large bowl, and then form into 4 large cakes (or 8 small ones).

4. Heat the remaining butter in a large non-stick frying pan and gently cook the potato cakes on both sides until dark golden and crispy.

5. Top the cakes with the cheese and place under a hot grill until melting.

Serve with a shredded white cabbage and carrot salad (or as a side dish with veggie sausages).

hi watchman,

i was just posted few recipes in this group page when i remembered back on this discussion. i know i've had posted a recipe on here before but i think i would like to share couple more with you and other people here.

i know i'm not an english but i love the way they cook potato. one of it which is my absolute favourite is leek, onion and potato soup. it's delia smith recipe which i found it's really suit my palate.


Leek, Onion and Potato Soup

4 large leeks
2 medium onion, chopped small
175 grams mashed potato
25 grams / 1 oz margarine or 4 tbsp olive oil (use butter if you prefer it)
850 ml / 1 1/2 pint organic vegetable stock
275 ml / 10 fL oz milk (use soya milk if you're a strict vegetarian)
salt and pepper to taste

To serve
1 tbsp crème fraîche or cream (again, skip this if you're a strict vegetarian)
1 1/2 tbsp of chopped fresh parsley

1. Begin by trimming the leeks, discarding the tough outer layer. Now split them in half lengthways and slice them quite finely, then wash them thoroughly in two or three changes of water.

2. Drain well. In a large, thick-based saucepan, gently melt the butter, then add the leeks, onions and potatoes, stirring them all round with a wooden spoon so they get a nice coating of butter. Season with salt and pepper, then cover and let the vegetables sweat over a very low heat for about 15 minutes.

3. After that, add the stock and milk, bring to simmering point, cover and let the soup simmer very gently for a further 20 minutes or until the vegetables are soft – if you have the heat too high the milk in it may cause it to boil over.

4. Now you can put the whole lot into a blender – leave it to cool a little first – and blend to a purée. If you have to blend the soup in batches, make sure you have a bowl to hand to put the first batch into.

5. Now return the soup to the saucepan and reheat gently, tasting to check the seasoning. Add a swirl of cream or crème fraîche before serving and sprinkle with freshly snipped chives or parsley.
i've taken this recipe from my favourite canadian cooks, michael smith. i was inspired by his simple cooking and very interesting cooking method as well as his generous given tips on cooking in the kitchen.

Potato Cheddar Tart

4 tbsp olive oil
1 large onion, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
500g aged cheddar, grated
6 large potato, unpeeled and baked
salt and pepper to taste

1. Preheat your oven at 180C / gas 4 / 350F. Slice the potatoes as thinly and uniformly as you can, about a quarter inch thick. Arrange a circular pattern of overlapping slices around the inside bottom edge of the pan. Continue arranging overlapping layers of the potatoes until the bottom is evenly covered. Season the potatoes with salt and pepper.

2. Mix the onions and garlic together and sprinkle some of the mixture onto the potatoes. Continue with a layer of the grated cheese. Cover with another layer of the potato pressing it down firmly before continuing with alternate layers of the potatoes, onion mixture and cheese until the pan is full. Continue with several more layers insetting each a bit from the edge of the pan until the top is an inch or so higher than the pan’s rim.

2. Place the tart pan on a baking sheet and bake for at least two and a half to three hours. You’ll know it’s done when a small thin bladed knife insert easily. Pour off as much of the fat around the edges as possible. Let the tart stand for fifteen minutes then invert it onto a cutting surface. Slice into wedges and serve immediately. You may refrigerate any leftovers and reheat them later it in the oven.
