Brownies with Potatoes? A New Favorite!

I always love adding a twist to every meal I serve to my family. This pandemic taught me to maximize whatever is in our pantry. This also made me exert a little “extra” effort in terms of creativity, since my family misses going out and dining in a cafe or a restaurant. 

Who does not love sweet and soft brownies to end a lovely dinner? And how about adding potatoes into it? Fascinated?

This whole read is all about how I made everybody’s favorite brownies using potatoes. Yes, potatoes! I am excited to share with you the whole experience so you can also create your version in the comfort of your home.

Potatoes Everywhere

Being a mom means evolving from breastfeeding to the introduction of solid foods to your child. One of the most popular baby foods moms always recommend is the potato. Be it boiled, stewed, roasted, or mashed! It is undeniably one of the easiest baby foods to prepare.

Did you know that the potato is “fat-free, sodium-free and cholesterol-free”? It is also packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals like vitamin C, potassium, protein, and fiber. This nutrient-dense vegetable is a wonderful addition to our diet and a good substitute for rice to help with weight management.

Creating dishes with vegetables, especially for kids, may be tricky, but potatoes are just so versatile that you can add it to just about any meal. What makes them more appealing is that they are affordable and readily available in markets everywhere. 

Potatoes are an excellent extender for dishes like Caldereta, Menudo, and Afritada. Don’t forget other yummy snacks made from spuds like spiral fries, flavored potato sticks, mojos, and even balls!

No Trick, Just Potato Treats

There’s more to potatoes than just savory treats. You can actually make delicious desserts like brownies, smoothie, doughnuts, croissants, or even brioche, using the humble potato.

I have recently discovered U.S. dehydrated potatoes, and how adding it to your recipe improves the overall flavor and texture of your sweet and savory dishes.

What are dehydrated potatoes? Simply put, they are real potatoes with just the water removed. They deliver all the flavor, nutrition, and versatility of potatoes in a more convenient package – and are the perfect ingredient for everything from soups and salads to main dishes and desserts. 

One of the recipes I tried using dehy potato is Chef Miko Aspiras’ brownies. My version is covered with melted chocolate making it extra mouth-watering!

It’s quite simple to make. Check the full recipe below.
