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! 

Time factors

  • Microwaved. This is fastest but also depends on your microwave's power. 
  • Oven. This takes longest.
  • How many potatoes are being cooked - this applies particularly to microwaved potatoes. 

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

Ingredients: 

1 large baked potato per person

Filling ingredients...some ideas to choose from:

  • Baked beans
  • Vegan Veggie Chilli (eg from a tin or home-made leftovers)
  • Vegan Veggie Curry (as above)
  • Dhal (as above)
  • Hummus
  • Garlic mushrooms - roughly chopped up, fried in a little oil, crushed garlic or garlic paste cooked quickly plus a drizzle of soya sauce
  • Pasta sauce heated through with chopped flavoured tofu, eg Taifun rosso, smoked or basil
  • Stir-fry vegetables and tofu (freshly made or heated up leftovers)
  • Vegan cream cheese, eg Sheese, Tesco, Sainsburys, Violife or Tofutti
  • Vegan hard cheese, eg Sheese, Tesco, Vbites, Vegusto, Violife
  • Vegan butter, eg Pure, Biona, Suma etc


Plus
1 large salad including dark green leaves, eg watercress, avocado, walnut and tomato

 

Method: 

1. Reheat the baked potato - microwave it or bake it in the oven, according to the packet instructions.
2. Reheat your filling and make the salad and dressing. 
3. Cut each potato in half lengthways. Top with filling(s) of your choice. Serve with the dressed salad.
