Great Ways to Use Potato Starch
Make Vegan Cheese
In the world of vegan cheeses, potato starch is one of best ingredients for creating the perfect texture. Use it in semi-soft vegan cheeses like mozzarella and even nacho cheese sauces.
Thicken Sauces with It
Especially if you're gluten-free, potato starch is an excellent sauce thickener to have in the pantry. Replace all-purpose flour with it at a one-to-one ratio. Another helpful trick is to use it as a soup thickener.
Make Potato Latkes
If you haven't had latkes before, they're essentially potato pancake fritters, and they're amazing. Enjoy them with vegan sour cream and applesauce.
