I’m always looking for plant based recipes to try. When I tell people about my eating habits, they often assume I eat a lot of salads. I do enjoy salads. However, there are so many healthy and interesting ways to prepare and enjoy fruits and vegetables. The possibilities are endless.
I found this intriguing potato recipe this morning, created by Lexi and Jimmy, who go by the name HomeGrownHealers on Instagram. I got to prepare it tonight!
Scrub 4 medium sized potatoes and cut in half. Use a fork to prick the side with the peeling on, and place cut side down on a cookie sheet, lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 30 minutes, in 400 degree oven, or until potatoes are tender. Flip potato halves over and allow to cool for a few minutes, until they can be handled.
Carefully scoop out insides of potatoes, placing into a bowl. I found it easier to cut around the edge of the potato half first and then scoop out the insides.
Add 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard and 2 tablespoons of a dairy, egg and soy free mayonnaise. I use Vegenaise. Add sea salt and pepper to taste. Mash with a potato masher or spoon, combining well.
Spoon mixture into potato shells. Sprinkle with paprika.
The recipe can be doubled. I fixed four potatoes, for two people, and it was the perfect amount.
This recipe made a tasty and satisfying meal! I loved the little kick of mustard. And no silverware was needed. These deviled potatoes can be picked up and eaten, just like a deviled egg.
Potatoes are a staple in my diet. They are not only nourishing and comforting, they are full of health essentials. Read about the benefits of potatoes HERE.
