Directions:

Overloaded Potatoes

  1. Preheat oven to 400° Brush potatoes with olive oil. Place on parchment lined tray or on oven rack. Bake 1 hour or as needed until baked through. While potatoes are baking, prepare Nacho “Cheese” Sauce and Vegan “Sour Cream”.
  2. Cut a lengthwise slit in hot potatoes; gently press open and lightly fluff potato with a fork. Add 1 tablespoon margarine if desired. Top with 1/2 cup Nacho “Cheese” Sauce, 1/4 cup each Spicy Corn and black beans. Finish with a dollop of Vegan “Sour Cream” and snipped chives, if desired.

Nacho “Cheese” Sauce

  1. Place cubed potatoes and carrots in a saucepan and add water to cover by 1 inch. Cover pan, bring to a simmer and cook until potatoes and carrots are tender, 5-7 minutes. Drain, reserving water. Cool vegetables slightly.
  2. Combine carrots, potatoes and next 8 ingredients (1 cup water thru cayenne pepper), in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Adjust thickness with reserved water as needed for pouring consistency, noting that sauce thickens when cool. Stir in jalapeño and tomato. Adjust salt as desired. Reheat briefly in microwave before serving. Makes 6 cups.

Vegan “Sour Cream”

  1. Blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Adjust salt and vinegar as desired to resemble sour cream. Refrigerate until serving. Makes 2 cups.

Spicy Corn

  1. Heat oil in a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add corn and sprinkle with chili powder. Cook stirring frequently until corn is toasted, about 5 minutes. Set aside until serving.
