Broccoli Cheese Baked Potato

What’s more classic than broccoli + cheese + potatoes? Make this plant-based version with a homemade vegan cheese sauce.

Ingredients

  • Vegan Cheese:
  • 2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 2 cups water
  • 5 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ Tbsp miso paste
  • ½ Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • ⅛ tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt, or to taste
  • Potato:
  • 6 Russet potatoes, yams or sweet potatoes
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 cups broccoli florets, chopped into bite size pieces
  • 4 green onions, sliced

Preparation

  • Make Vegan Cheese: Bring water to a boil. Add cauliflower and cook until soft.

  • Transfer cauliflower and cooking liquid to a blender and blend with remaining ingredients.

  • Taste and adjust seasoning as desired. Serve warm.

  • Make Baked Potatoes: Preheat oven to 350F.

  • Using a fork, poke each potato 8 – 10 times. Toss potatoes in oil, salt and pepper. Bake for 60 – 75 minutes until skin is crisp and centers are tender.

  • While potatoes are cooking, prepare cheese sauce and steam broccoli.

  • Combine cheese sauce and broccoli together.

  • Cut a slit down each potato, press each end of the potato together creating a gap.

  • Pour cheese and broccoli sauce over baked potatoes. Top with green onions.
