Well… one could argue that potatoes never really went out of style. We go digging deep for flavour with a comforting autumn recipe that will have the whole family asking for seconds!

Forget low-carb diets and Atkins; those sweet, succulent spuds are once again finding their place among meat and vegetables at the dinner table.

To celebrate its return to centre-stage, Kita Roberts, of the food blog GirlCarnivore, has recognised the health benefits of a plant-based diet while still including your favourite proteins. She has created a recipe packed with carrots, beets, kale, and Idaho potatoes. Add the sweetness of maple aioli and you’ve got yourself a nutritious meal.
