I love recipes like this, easy, delicious and perfect for any time of the year or the day. This potato torte is perfect if you don’t like mash potatoes or you need a delicious side dish.

slices of potatoes, sweet potatoes and red onion

It is as easy as slicing potatoes, sweet potatoes, and red onion. And then you put all the slices together with salt, rosemary and olive oil.

You can make it just with potatoes and red onions, but I like to add the nutricional powers of sweet potatoes. And, if we put the two together we have a delicious, powerful, healthy, easy to prepare… potato torte.

Tips, tricks & other recipes

  • A good tip to make this dish would be to cut all the vegetables with a similar width. Use a very sharp knife, a food processor (affiliate link) or a mandoline. Just be careful with any of those sharp utensils. I have cut my self many times and it is not fun.
  • I like to use red onion but any type will work. use Vidalia onions, yellow onions or even white onions.
  • legume If you serve this dish as a lunch, serve it with a delicious salad and a soup. That would be a well balanced vegan meal.
  • This potato torte takes a bit of time in the oven if you are in a hurry, cover it and when cooked uncover to let the top layer roast.
  • Here are other recipes with potatoes that I think you will love: potatoes with chipotle and lime juice, these are perfect as an appetizer. Roasted potatoes with pico de gallo salad, perfect picnic salad.
