Cheesy Vegan Potato Bake

Califia Farms

Cheesy vegan potato bake

This plant-based version of a potato bake will certainly hit the spot. A cheesy sauce made using cashews and Califia Farms Unsweetened Almond Milk makes this bake taste just as rich but without the dairy so everyone in the family can enjoy! Feel free to add a sprinkling of vegan cheese on top, totally delicious either way

Ingredients

1 cup raw cashews  

6-7 medium potatoes thinly sliced  

1 cup Califia Farms Unsweetened Almond milk (or your preferred vegan milk)

½ tsp onion powder  

1 tsp salt + pinch of pepper  

1 tbsp corn starch  

2 tsp apple cider vinegar  

1 tsp Dijon mustard  

1 onion thinly sliced  

Vegan cheese grated (optional)

  1. Place the cashews in a heat proof bowl and cover with boiling water, set aside for 15 minutes. 
  2. Pre heat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius. 
  3. Drain the cashews and place them into a blender with the Califia Farms Unsweetened Almond Milk, onion powder, salt, pepper, corn starch, vinegar and mustard and blend until smooth. 
  4. Place the sliced potatoes into a bowl and pour over ¼ of the sauce mixture, stir to coat each potato slice. 
  5. Place the potato slices in a baking tray alternating sizes and adding in a slice of onion every so often.
