Vegan Wild Mushrooms, Roasted Garlic and Idaho® Potato Calzone  

Here in Idaho we LOVE Italian food! And at this time of year one of our favorite recipes is Vegan Wild Mushrooms, Roasted Garlic and Idaho® Potato Calzone. It’s packed with nutritious veggies, helping us stick to some of our New Year's resolutions to eat healthier! This calzone is a delicious combination of Idaho® potatoes, mushrooms, onions, garlic, and thyme. Adding spinach or tomatoes gives it an extra nutritional boost and makes us love it even more.

Idaho® Potato Nachos on Game Day

Game day isn’t complete without a delicious Idaho® potato recipe to please even the pickiest eaters at your Super Bowl party. Wow your crowd with food blogger Lisa Lin’s Idaho® Potato Nachos with General Tso’s Chicken. This dish is made with Idaho® Russet potatoes, mozzarella cheese, fresh bell peppers and topped with tamari seasoned shredded chicken, shaoxing wine, vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes.

Ask Dr. Potato

Q: Why are my red potatoes yellow inside? And does this mean they’re not from Idaho?

A: Idaho grows several red potato varieties and some of the newer varieties have a yellow flesh instead of the usual white flesh.

To determine if the potatoes are from Idaho look for the “Grown In Idaho®” certification mark on the packaging. This seal guarantees that you have purchased genuine Idaho® potatoes. You can find all of our Idaho® potato varieties here: https://idahopotato.com/directory/varieties
