As awareness about gluten sensitivities has increased, so has the demand for gluten-free meal options. Luckily, Idaho® potatoes are the perfect solution. Frank Muir, president and CEO, IPC explains, “Not only are Idaho® potatoes naturally gluten-free, but they are also an excellent source of fiber, vitamin C and potassium – and they taste great, too!” These new recipes are a must-try whether your diet is gluten-free or not, because they showcase the true power of the Idaho® potato - adding amazing flavor without sacrificing nutrition.
