Whether they’re baked, fried, diced, sliced, or mashed, potatoes may be the ultimate comfort food. Not only are they delicious, they’re also one of the cheapest, easiest, and most vegan-friendly foods at the grocery store. Filled with dietary fiber, vitamin B6, potassium, and more, potatoes are nothing short of a dream.
