Vegan Loaded Potatoes

March 15, 2010 by Keri

Potatoes, that is! Tonight, we had loaded potatoes for dinner, and oh my goodness they were good.  Potatoes are fabulous as they are, but to turn a potato into a whole meal?  Now that’s a thing of beauty!  (Okay, maybe I’m being a little dramatic over this potato stuff, but yum.)

Vegan Rice Recipes

First, I baked organic red potatoes and pressure cooked a pot of brown rice.  While the potatoes were baking and the rice cooking, I heated up a tablespoon or so of vegan butter in a skillet.  Once it was melted I sauteed sliced fresh mushroom, onion, and baby carrot until tender.  After plating some brown rice, I sliced the baked red potatoes in half so that they were ready to cradle the sauteed veggie goodness.  Then I loaded in the tender mushrooms, onions, and carrots, topping it all off with a generous amount of Daiya cheddar shreds.  My husband and son also drizzled theirs with agave sweetened barbecue sauce to add to the flavor!  I tried it with the sauce and it was really good, but I was enjoying the veggie goodness too much too coat it all in sauce.  We all ended the meal stuffed and happy!  I hope everyone had a great day filled with plenty of tasty vegan food!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, it’s nice to “meet” you. That loaded potato looks so incredibly amazing, I don’t even know what to say! I am so very jealous that you have access to Daiya, I still haven’t tried it.

    Thanks- I loved my work eating potatoes! 😉

    Hi Jessie! Nice to “meet” you too! Thank you- I actually don’t have access to Daiya locally, but a few weeks ago, when I was placing an order on, I ordered a 5lb bag! I keep it in my freezer and just thaw little amounts as I need/want it.

    Potatoes, Good! We do baked taters a lot in my house, with three growing boys it’s easy and we love to load it with veggies too. Ours usually includes some Follow Your Heart Sour Cream as well. Never thought of the bed of rice though, we will have to try that.

    Yum! I do have some Toffuti sour cream, but we’ve been eating a lot of it lately! I’ve actually never tried the FYH sour cream- I’ll have to try to find it.
