Simply, most people love potatoes. But if you don’t have the time to prepare a delicious and filling dinner – then get those spuds, wash them, get the filling prepared in 2 minutes, and in just over 30 minutes you have yourself (and your family) a delicious and satisfying delight.
- 1 large potato (per person), scrubbed
- olive oil to drizzle
- plenty of margarine
- baked beans – heat them up with a dollop of margarine and ½ tspn of curry powder (have them in readiness for the spud, so heat them 3 minutes before)
- thick chunks of vegan cheese (I use Redwoods)
- salt and pepper to taste
- flat leaf chopped parsley for garnishing.
Place your potato in a microwave, and allow to cook for 15 minutes on full until soft. Then remove and place on a dish. Sprinkle some salt (important ingredient as it helps it colour nicely), and drizzle with olive oil. Place in a very hot oven for around 15 minutes (or until the potato has a nice golden colour), remove and place onto your plate.
Cut a cross on the top of the potato, then press all four corners of the potato with your fingertips in order to open it. Add the salt, margarine, ‘cheese’, the beans and finally the garnish.
This meal may be served with any salad of your choice, but, I have to say, it is so filling that it can be served as it is.
Bon Appetit !
