Vegan Pan-Fried Potato Coins

February 25, 2010 by Keri

Nearly everyone loves the glorious potato, and there are a ton of ways to prepare them, most of which are fabulous.  I had a few potatoes in the pantry that really needed to be used, so tonight I made pan-fried potatoes with red pepper, onion, and garlic.  It’s nothing fancy, but definitely warm and delicious.  Potatoes are another comfort food that I love to indulge in and with red peppers and onions added in, it makes for a healthy dose of veggies.  These would be delicious smothered in vegan cheese shreds, ketchup, salsa, or vegan ranch dressing depending on how you like your potatoes!

Vegan Breakfast Recipes


  • 4 russet potatoes, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1/2 large red pepper, chopped
  • 1 small white onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced or minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

In a large skillet, heat oil until just hot.  Reduce to medium heat.  Add potatoes, red pepper, onion, and garlic to the pan, followed by salt garlic powder, and black pepper.  Turn potatoes once and cover for approximately 10 minutes.  Turn potatoes and recover for another 8-10 minutes, or until they read desired crispness.  Enjoy!

    I love, love potatoes! I used to love french fries a lot, but since I’m trying to eat healthy now, I always try to look for healthier alternatives. This recipe looks really delicious and it looks like it’s pretty quick and easy to prepare! I’m definitely trying this out this weekend as part of my “go meatless once a week” habit. (we did a post on this last January!) Thanks for the recipe, Keri!

    I love potatoes also- I suggest cutting them fairly thin and they cook even quicker! 🙂 Add a little ketchup and they taste like fries.
