When I was trying this dish I was not expecting too much since the ingredients and the cooking are very simple. I am not a huge potato fan also. I was even more surprised over how much I liked this food and how cheesy and special the taste was, even if the whole process is done in 15 minutes.
For 2 portions you need:
- 1tbs margarine
- 2garlic gloves
- 1tbs flour (I used spelt flour)
- 1 cup plant milk (I used rice milk with calcium)
- 1tsp salt
- 1/2tsp pepper
- 4 potatoes
- 1tbs nutritional yeast
- 1tbs chopped cashews
- fresh herbs
Preheat your oven to 175 degrees Celsius. Now peel the potatoes and cut in even slices. Place in two small baking dishes.
Melt the margarine in a small pot. Add chopped garlic, flour, plant milk, salt and pepper, one thing at a time, boil up while stirring and stir until it becomes a thick sauce. Cover potatoes with the sauce and sprinkle with nutritional yeast and chopped cashews.
Bake for about 60 minutes. Decorate with fresh herbs before serving.
