Broccoli Cheeze Stuffed Potatoes

Roasted potatoes are 100% my go-to dish.

No time to cook for dinner? Roast potatoes and serve with some beans and green onions and I call it a meal.

Too busy for lunch? Roasted potatoes.

Too hungover on a Sunday to make breakfast? Roast some potatoes and call them hash browns.

I love them any time of day and they always fill me up without leaving me feeling heavy. For once though, I wanted to do something a little different. And wanted to get some greens in with my beloved taters.

These are so delicious and I suppose you would call them a healthier version of the uber fattening potato skins. The cheese sauce is really spectacular and is a cinch to put together. Feel free to using russet potatoes, I’m just partial to the red variation!

5 large red potatoes

2 broccoli crowns, chopped into florets

2 shallots, sliced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tbsp olive oil

Crushed red pepper

All purpose seasoning, sea salt and black pepper to taste

CHEEZE SAUCE

3/4 cup coconut milk

1/3 cup nutritional yeast

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  • For the cheese sauce, cook olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat for one minute
  • Add milk, flour and nutritional yeast and whisk together well
  • Reduce heat to low-medium and continue whisking until the sauce thickens and then remove from heat
  • In a frying pan, cook the crushed red pepper in olive oil over medium heat for one minute

Potato & Green Bean Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette

I am clutching onto summer for dear life here, folks. As everyone starts drinking their Shipyard Pumpkinheads, craving apple cider donuts, planning their fall activities and stocking up on sweaters and boots already, I, for one, amstill sporting a bikini every day, drinking Shocktop Lemon Shandy and yearning for more beach trips. I can’t help […]

Creamy Pasta Primavera

001

Can’t go wrong with a big ol’ plate of pasta with some veggies. This is one of those clean-out-your-fridge-and-hope-that-everything-goes-together type of dish. And lucky for me…it did. Lots of farm fresh veggies (using more or less to your heart’s desire) and a basic creamy sauce makes for a winning combination. I personally don;t even like […]

Potato, Kale & Chickpea Casserole

Hello, rainy day. This is the first day in, well, FOREVER that I haven’t had to be at the pool for at least a fraction of the day. Not that I’m a fan of crappy weather, but I am loving the fact that I get to stay home all day and do nothing but blog, […]

Vegetable Tofu Curry

007

I haven’t got much to say on this one. No quirky story. No tale behind the recipe. Just that tofu is clearly growing on me. This curry would definitely be superb without it, but it just wan’t be the same. I found an organic, non-GMO, sprouted tofu from Nasoya for a whopping $2 and it’s […]
