I love potatoes and cucumbers! I had an anchoring for the both of them as well as avocado and because of that, today’s recipe was birthed! Eating clean and enjoying the plant foods of the earth feels much better than feeding my body some other type of processed foods.
This recipe is hearty and will not disappoint! Of course using my Caribbean roots I had to add some east Indian spices to give it an extra kick and punch. And I’m so glad I did.
This recipe was actually inspired by when I first started making sautéed potatoes for breakfast with a special kick for them 6 years ago. And when my boyfriend and I first started dating he absolutely loved them! Sautéed potatoes for breakfast is definitely fulfilling and gives you enough energy to power your morning.
So having this vegan potato avocado salad for lunch is just as tasty and delicious.
The curry powder and cumin powder give this vegan potato salad a special taste, and the cucumber makes it feel light and refreshing. Normally potatoes can feel heavy and make you feel sleepy, but that’s normally because of all the heavy additives and processed things we add to it like dairy: sour cream, cheese, and butter. But this recipe makes it not only palatable, but also filling without feeling like you’re going to keel over.
