This Whole30 scalloped potatoes recipe makes a simple and satisfying side dish when you’re following a Paleo*, Whole30, or gluten free diet, and you need to eat a side dish that is not green at least once a week to feel human.
*If you don’t eat white potatoes on Paleo, you can also make this with sweet potatoes, just lower the oven to 375° so the bottom layer doesn’t burn.

This is the easiest scalloped potatoes recipe—you can assemble it in five minutes if you use a food processor! (This is my favorite food processor.)
Dairy free scalloped potatoes have just five ingredients total: potatoes, olive oil, salt, pepper, and chives. You can double or triple the batch if you like, just don’t stack it more than two inches high or the outside edges will burn before the middle cooks through; use a large casserole dish like this one for holiday feasts.
These scalloped potatoes are a great budget Whole30 side dish—and when you’re eating a ton of meat and veggies, a budget side dish is much needed! I use organic potatoes and chives, and certified Italian extra virgin olive oil, and this side dish costs less than $3 total for 8 servings!
I’m not going to lie and say that dairy free scalloped potatoes taste creamy, but these Whole30 approved scalloped potatoes definitely hit the spot when you’ve hit your kale threshold.
