Is there anything better than a sheet pan dinner? I love simple meals like this one, especially for the family. Roasted Little Potato Company potatoes with ranch tofu, whole grains, cucumber, tomato, greens, avocado and the creamiest dairy-free ranch dressing on top.

By now you know how much we love The Little Potato Company. Ever since I discovered them about 5 years ago, they have been my go-to potato for just about every occasion. Potato salad, chowder, roasted, slow cooked, curry, potato skins, you name the potato recipe and The Little Potato Company creamer potatoes are the perfect fit.

Creamer potatoes are the smallest potato in the potato family and loaded with nutrition. They have more potassium than a banana and are naturally free of sodium, saturated fat and cholesterol.

As a chef and busy mom, I love that there is no peeling required and their buttery texture works so well in so many dishes. Bonus points that my kids think they are so cute and love helping me toss them with the spices before roasting. For these bowls, I’m using their Morning Pearl variety but any of their creamer potatoes will work in this recipe.

Are potatoes healthy?

Yes, potatoes are healthy. Potatoes have been an affordable, staple part of the diet for many cultures for thousands of years—yet I often hear that people aren’t consuming potatoes because they think they are unhealthy.

Let’s clear this up. Potatoes are an important source of vitamin C, vitamin B6, potassium, folate, iron and fiber. How we cook potatoes matters. It likely comes as no surprise that when potatoes are peeled (stripped of their fiber) and deep fried, like in French fries, they are linked to an increase in chronic disease, like Type 2 diabetes and hypertension.

However, when potatoes are steamed, roasted, boiled – especially with the skin on—they are health promoting and possibly more satiating than other starchy carbohydrates, like pasta and rice. As a triple bonus point, potatoes are also a more sustainable crop than rice and wheat.

It’s another reason that I love using creamer potatoes from The Little Potato Company often; you eat them with the skin which provides extra fiber and when prepared like this—roasted with olive oil and herbs—they are an incredibly nutrient-dense product.

Can this sheet pan ranch bowl recipe be used for meal prep?

Yup—this one is great for family dinner and also for meal prep during the week. I know I talk about meal prepping often, but it’s my saving grace for busy weeks—especially for healthy lunches. I don’t spend a ton of time on the weekend doing it, but I usually make one or two big meals, like this one, at the beginning of the week and then enjoy the leftovers for quick lunches.
