Idaho potato commission ADDS THREE NEW MOUTH-WATERING GLUTEN-FREE RECIPES TO ITS RICH RECIPE COLLECTION

Idaho® Potato and White Bean Skordalia is an easy two-step dip that goes perfectly with crunchy vegetables or chips

Eagle, IDAHO (May 3, 2016) -- The Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) has just released three new and unique gluten-free recipes for those avoiding wheat and flour-based ingredients. Idaho® Potato Skordalia; Russian Beet, Idaho® Potato Salad; and Idaho® Potato South African Curried Meatloaf (Bobotie) use naturally gluten-free, Idaho® potatoes as the main ingredient and taste so good, even folks not monitoring their gluten intake will enjoy them.

“In addition to the Idaho® potato’s impressive nutritional profile, it’s also naturally gluten-free,” explained Frank Muir, President and CEO, IPC. “During Celiac Awareness Month we want to remind consumers who are gluten-sensitive that Idaho® potatoes are a great and healthy staple for their diets.”

The IPC’s new recipes are easy to make and can be enjoyed by the entire family. Idaho® Potato and White Bean Skordalia requires only a food processor and a few minutes of time. The result: a puree that tastes like garlic mashed potatoes drizzled with olive oil. Use chopped bell peppers, carrots and celery stalks to scoop up the dip, making this a super-nutritious snack or appetizer. Idaho® Potato South African Curried Meatloaf (aka Bobotie) is a South African meat dish with a baked egg custard topping that uses ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. And, if you want to wake up your taste buds, try Russian Beet and Idaho® Potato Salad, which is a great accompaniment to any protein.

  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 pimento-stuffed green olives
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

 Directions:

  1. If desired, microwave the garlic for 20 seconds to soften the flavor.
