Vegan Home Fries: A Simple Recipe

Zen Simplicity

This is a nice, simple recipe for making Home Fries, and the first thing I cooked up with the new Cast Iron Skillet, so I was pretty stoked about making this. What’s even more cool is that this is a very simple recipe using just a few ingredients.


Servings: 3-4
Total Time: Less than 30 minutes



  • 2-3 Russet or Red Potatoes, washed and cut into 1/2 pieces
  • 1/2 Yellow or White Onion, diced
  • 2-3 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp Canola Oil
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste



  • Heat up a medium-sized Skillet, on medium-high for a couple of minutes.
  • Add the Canola Oil and spread throughout the Skillet’s surface.
  • Add the Onions and stir until they brown slightly.
  • Add the Garlic and stir light for a minute.
  • Add the Potatoes and sauté until soft and they brown.
  • Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.


Tips and Notes

  • Russet Potatoes are tougher and harder than the Red Potatoes. You might want to blanch them for a bit before adding to the skillet.
  • Feel free to adjust the ingredients as you like it. For instance, add more garlic.
  • Try sun-dried tomatoes or chopped fresh tomatoes.
