Ingredients

Loaded Potatoes

Low-Fat Eggless Mayo

  • Creamy Vegan Cheese Sauce

Preparation

Loaded Potato Skins

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and bake whole small potatoes until tender, approximately 30 minutes, depending on size of little potatoes.
  2. Remove potatoes from oven and allow to cool. Slice potatoes in half, scoop out pulp leaving ¼-inch in shell. Place pulp in a medium bowl.
  3. Add dairy-free milk, low-fat mayo, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and smoked paprika to potato in bowl and mash together using a potato masher or fork.
  4. Fill potato skins with mashed potato mixture.
  5. Drizzle with Creamy Vegan Cheese sauce, then top with more smoked paprika, chives, and cilantro.

Low-Fat Eggless Mayo

  1. Drain tofu and squeeze excess water out on paper towels. Blend all ingredients in blender. Leftover mayo can be used on sandwiches, wraps, and in other sauces. Store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Creamy Vegan Cheese Sauce

  1. In medium pot, bring about 3 cups of water to a boil. Place potatoes, carrots, and onion in pot and allow to cook until veggies are tender, approximately 15 minutes. Cooking time will vary based on how small the veggies are diced.
  2. When veggies are tender, drain and place them in blender. NOTE: reserve 1 cup of the broth, and add to blender. Add all the remaining ingredients, and blend until smooth.
  3. Now, it’s ready to use as a Loaded Potato Skins topping, nacho cheese dip, mac-n-cheese, topping for steamed broccoli, or anything else you need a creamy, cheesy sauce in. It makes approximately 1 quart and can be stored in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.
