Ella Mills, best-selling author and healthy-eating blogger, is supporting the Potatoes: More Than A Bit On The Side campaign and has transformed one of the nation’s favourite indulgences into a healthy, nutritious and flavoursome meal. Her Loaded Mexican-Style Potato Skins recipe takes what is usually an unhealthy treat – laden with cheese or bacon – and gives it a new spin, showing just how versatile an ingredient potatoes can be.
Ella uses baked potatoes – made golden and crunchy in the oven – as her base and tops them with garlic-infused tomatoes and black beans, before piling them high with home-made guacamole and cashew sour cream. This vegan recipe is so warming and delicious, perfect for impressing guests or enjoying as a healthy post-work meal.
As a natural, unprocessed ingredient that contains no salt, fat or gluten, potatoes fit perfectly into Ella’s plant-based diet. Ella is keen to show that eating healthy, natural foods can be accessible to anyone – and still super satisfying!
Ella will be sharing five specially created potato recipes over the course of 2016, encouraging us to try a range of diverse, delicious and low-fat dishes – all full of natural potato goodness, including potassium and fibre. Her first recipe, Potato Yaki Udon Noodles, is available to try now. Enjoy!
