“What I say is that, if a man really likes potatoes, he must be a pretty decent sort of fellow.” ― A.A. Milne
Maybe it has something to do with my Irish roots, but I LOVE potatoes! My husband Keith and I decided to put our homegrown red potatoes to the test via a vegan baked potato bar, and they definitely passed!
We baked our potatoes, broiled some Daiya vegan mozzarella shreds on top and added dairy-free butter, roasted broccoli, fried smoky tempeh bacon, ground black pepper, and my favorite sour cream substitute, Joanne Stepaniak’s Sour Dressing recipe from Vegan Deli, page 123.
Keith claimed he’d already had more than his share of baked potatoes during his college years, since as a vegetarian that’s about all he had to choose from at his school’s cafeteria, but he couldn’t get enough of our baked potato bar!
Potato Facts: The potato is was first domesticated by the Andeans of South America at around 500 B.C., and the Inca grew thousands of varieties of potatoes.
