 Baked Potato with assorted fillings, Convenience-style

This is another idea for using 'accidentally vegan' products to make a quick meal. Obviously, it's easy to bake a potato from scratch but this is for those of you who are too busy to cook. For this meal at least! 

 

McCain's and Bannister's Farm are the most common brands and you should find these nearly everywhere.

  • Pasta sauce heated through with chopped flavoured tofu, eg Taifun rosso, smoked or basil
