[Recipe] Loaded Potato Skins for plant-eaters

This is a recipe from our friends over at Vegan Street

YOU WILL NEED:

5 large potatoes, washed and pricked with a fork several times
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, pressed
¼ teaspoon paprika
1 recipe cashew cheese or vegan cheese of your choosing
1 recipes coconut bacon or meatless bacon of your choosing
1 bunch scallions, sliced
Vegan sour cream, optional
Paprika for top, optional


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees (F). Place your potatoes on a middle rack and bake for 50 minutes to an hour, until all are easily pierced with a fork.

Meanwhile, make your bacon and prepare your cheese if you're making it from scratch.

Remove potatoes from the oven and allow to cool. Lower the temperature to 375 degrees (F). When they are cool enough to handle, cut your potatoes down the middle and scoop out the potatoes*, leaving enough around the skins so as to not break through.

In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil with the garlic and paprika. Using a silicon brush, brush your potatoes all the way around and place on a parchment, Silpat or lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake for 13 minutes.

When done, arrange on your serving platter and load with your fillings. Serve warm and enjoy!

* Save your potatoes for later. These are great for making mashed potatoes with!
