Here’s a recipe for plant-based twice baked potatoes that is easy and “cheesy!”
Potatoes are absolutely delicious.
They are a powerful food for healing, but most don’t realize that.
Potatoes are usually covered in all kinds of things – cheese sauces, sour cream, bacon. Those unhealthy toppings give the potato a bad rap!
Today, I’m bringing you a recipe that is “cheesy” AND healthy.
Of course, it’s a plant-based cheese, but you can’t tell the difference.
Plant-Based, Twice-Baked Potatoes
You can eat these guilt-free, as these “cheesy” twice-baked potatoes are as healthy as it gets!
This recipe is dairy-free, egg-free, fat-free, soy-free, grain-free, gluten-free, and delicious!
The plant-based twice-baked potato recipe includes two types of potatoes – both russets and golden potatoes. Each type of potato brings you different nutrients, so it’s wonderful if you can include a variety of potatoes in your diet.
There are four main steps to the recipe: baking the russet potatoes, steaming the golden potatoes, blending the “cheesy” potatoes, and then baking it all.
Enjoy, my friends!!
- 4-6 medium Russet potatoes
- 4 medium golden potatoes
- 1/3 cup steaming water, veggie stock, or water
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- juice of half a lemon
2. Allow to cool a bit. Then slice in half length-wise.
2. Instant Pot: Add 1/2 inch water to the pot. Place the steamer basket inside. Steam potatoes for about 13 minutes on high pressure. Allow to vent naturally.
3. Stove Top: Add 1/2-1 inch water to a pot. Place steamer basket inside. Cover the pot. Steam potatoes for about 30 minutes or until soft.
Blend the “Cheezy” Potatoes
1. Add the steamed golden potatoes plus all remaining ingredients to a blender or food processor.
2. Top the Russet potatoes with the "Cheezey" potato blend. (If your cheese sauce is runny, allow it to stand until it thickens up a bit.)
3. Place the potatoes on a baking sheet.
4. Put the potatoes back in the oven under the broiler for a few minutes until the top starts to brown. Watch carefully as they go from brown to burnt rather quickly!
5. Allow to cool and top with your favorite toppings, such as cashew cream, scallions, salsa, avocado, etc.
