Remember stuffed baked potatoes. They are a great way to use leftovers for toppings. Use steamed or sautéed vegetable mix, beans, collard greens, spinach, salsa (fresh or bottled), salad, sauces or just a mix of fresh herbs. Skip the butter or oil and save the calories. The choices are endless and so easy!
Preheat oven to 500°F (260°C). 8 Potatoes can be wrapped in foil or baked without foil. Place potatoes in hot oven and bake until tender when squeezed. This usually takes 40-60 minutes to cook, depending on the size and number of potatoes you are using. Remove from oven and cut in half. Either scoop out part of the potato flesh to be mixed with toppings of choice and your favorite seasonings or just place toppings on top.
Potatoes are also delicious topped with Mushroom Gravy or Caramelized Onion Gravy.
Mix pesto with vegan butter and spread on top of baked potato.
