Fully loaded baked potato that doesn't skimp on flavour and is super simple to make. I converted it from a tuna potato I make as I'm trying to go vegan; and so far it's even better than the non vegan version! Hope you guys enjoy as much as I did.

1 person made this

IngredientsServes: 2

  • 2 large potatoes
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 16 closed cup mushrooms
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons vegan spread
  • 3 to 4 chunks frozen spinach
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • mixed seeds, to taste

MethodPrep:20min ›Cook:40min ›Ready in:1hr

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
  2. Prepare your potatoes by washing, then skewering a few holes around the potato with a knife for even cooking. Pop them in the microwave for 5 minutes on full power, turn and then microwave again for a further 5 minutes on full power.
  3. Put your potatoes into a baking tray, and toss in olive oil, garlic powder and a couple pinches of salt. Just enough to lightly coat the skin of the potatoes should be perfect.
  4. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until crispy enough for your taste.
  5. Cut your mushrooms into small cubes, about the size of a piece of sweetcorn. Fry lightly in a little vegan butter/margarine until no liquid is left.
  6. Put 3 to 4 chunks of frozen spinach into the mushrooms and 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar, and fry for a around 7 minutes, or until the spinach is cooked.
  7. Cut your baked potato and butter. Put half of your mushroom and spinach filling into each potato and sprinkle on mixed seeds to taste. Drizzle on balsamic vinegar and olive oil to taste, and serve with a side salad.

Bolognese Potato Bake

I've never tried this before but it looks delicious! Going on the menu for dinner next week.

Oh good, I hope you enjoy it Jen :)

I love all of your suggestions on using left-over bolognese sauce, especially this one with potatoes! HOW DELICIOUS!

Thanks and yes there are lots of ways to use up leftover bolognese.

I love the shortcuts in this dish, like using leftover bolognese and frozen potatoes. That makes this the perfect dish for busy nights.

I am all about the easy meals, especially for midweek dinners.

This is such a great idea for using up leftover bolognese! I love the ideas of using potatoes!

Hey, everything is better with potatoes. don't you think?

What a savory and easy dish for dinner! Looking forward to making this tonight! Yum!

Enjoy it Sarah. It's a good comforting dish.

I had always thought it was bolognaise - never heard of bolognese - probably been misreading it for years! This looks delicious. I am impressed you make bolognese sauce so often - I love it but am really out of the habit of making it often - but I agree about making heaps because you can do so much with leftovers.

Yes I always spelled it bolognaise, but bolognese seems to be the more common spelling these days. The boys love it so I make it every week or two. I have to admit I love it too.

Hi, I'm in the UK. We don't say/use bolognaise. It's always been and is bolognese. Also, great recipe!

Actually bolognaise was always more common in the UK or at least in Scotland as it came from the French whom we have strong links with. In the last few decades with the rise of the internet the preference has moved to bolognese.

I love reading comments, so thank you for taking the time to leave one. Unfortunately, I'm bombarded with spam, so I've turned on comment moderation. I'll publish your comments as soon as I can and respond to them. Don't panic, they will disappear when you hit publish. Jac x



Easy Vegan Recipes That Are Super Simple, Yet Insanely Delicious

Nothing quite beats a recipe that's easy to make, yet still incredibly delicious. And these vegan recipes are just that. Combining some of our favourite flavours and ingredients, we've got everything from Veggie Kebabs to Tofu Stir Fry. And we're convinced you're going to absolutely love them!

When it comes to roasted veggies, courgette is one of our favourites. First of all, it's FAST! (No shade, roasted beets.) Courgette gets tender in no time at all, so make sure to start checking them early to ensure they're not turning to complete mush.

Tofu gets a bad rap for being flavourless, boring, and at times undesirably rubbery&mdashbut the hate is undeserved. Avoid thinking of it as a meat substitute, let it exist on its own terms, as its own thing, and be surprised by what it has to offer. Treat it kindly and you'll be rewarded with a versatile protein that can play the field as a sweet or savoury ingredient.

When we're looking for a spicy, flavourful side to brighten up our dinner, we turn to Bang Bang Cauliflower. Not only is it quick and easy, but the dish is super adaptable. Not a fan of spice? Go easy on the sriracha and bump up the chilli sauce. Hate coriander? Ditch it in favour of thinly sliced spring onions. You have our blessing to make it your own!

This hearty soup is infinitely adaptable. Don't love white beans? Add chickpeas instead! Not into celery? Leeks would be great here, too.

White beans are a great blank canvas, especially for bright, assertive flavours like lemon and fresh herbs. Perfect as a side, or as a meal topped with a poached egg, these beans prove from-scratch really does make a difference.

Carrot and coriander soup is a classic soup for a reason. This version picks up a little spice from the jalapeños and draws out the sweetness from the carrots by roasting them first. It has plenty of coriander for a perfectly spiced spoonful at every bite. It's our favourite version of carrot soup and we are deeming it the soup of the year!

There's really nothing more comforting than a steaming hot bowl of tomato soup. We prefer using tinned tomatoes rather than fresh because they tend to be packed in peak season&mdashthat means they're perfectly ripe! PLUS, the skins are removed. That means less work for you!

Fluffy vegan pancakes are 100% possible. And trust us, you won't miss milk, butter, or eggs. These are the ingredients that make all the difference:

Courgette is one of our favourite vegetables to grill in the summer. Why? It's healthy, it's easy, and it cooks SO FAST.

Cooking with dried black beans is always better than using canned. And while it's easy to cook black beans, it can take a long time and some forethought. There is no need to think ahead with the Instant Pot.

This jackfruit burger is 100% vegan, and 100% tasty. Made with pulled jackfruit, we've layered up a brioche bun with all the burger fillings, plus a tasty guac.

This kale soup is green, healthy and downright delicious - plus it's 100% creamy and 100% vegan! Coconut milk gives this soup a boost of flavour and its creamy texture. Plus it's packed with all your super greens making it satisfying and soul-warming.

This super versatile lentil salad is a meal-preppers dream. It's healthy, it's flexible, it keeps for a full week, and it tastes better the longer it sits! Have we convinced you yet?!

This hearty soup might be vegetarian, but it's super filling thanks to quinoa, white beans, kale, carrots, and celery.

This Sag Aloo recipe is one of my favourite potato side dish ideas. And I personally think no curry feast is complete without a side bowl of this carb-loaded goodness. I've swapped in spinach for kale, so it's not strictly traditional, but if you're not fancying that then just add spinach instead - simple!

Falafel is a traditional Middle-Eastern dish typically made with ground chickpeas or broad beans. I'm using sweet potato for a different take and texture on the delicious veggie dish.

Tarka daal, is one of our favourite soul-warming, stomach-filling, store-cupboard dinner wins. We love this Indian dish because a) it's damn right delicious, and b) we often have all the ingredients in our cupboard and fridge already.

Tofu scrambles have been a mainstay of vegan cuisine for decades. At their best, they're seared and crisp on the outside, tender and creamy on the inside, and assertively spiced.

Tofu can be a hard sell. There are many complaints about its bland texture and flavour, but when given a special treatment, a transformation takes place.

This vegan chocolate cake recipe is by far one of our favourite bakes to make. EVER. It uses freshly brewed coffee for ultimate flavour, and the buttercream uses vegan butter and tastes totally gorgeous.

Donuts. that are delicious and vegan?! Believe it.

We've swapped the eggs for spicy scrambled tofu, swapped the meat for our fave vegan "facon" and sausages, and even thrown in some smashed avo and griddled mushrooms and toms for even more flavour.

A lasagne you can feel good about.

Amazing, creamy mashed potatoes are still possible while being completely dairy free and these are here to prove it! If you're still slightly tempted by real butter then go ahead, but here's our vegan version!

Vegan stuffing doesn't have to be boring. Ours is every bit as flavourful as a classic stuffing. Use a quality, hearty loaf of bread and a nice olive oil to ensure your stuffing is as good as can be. Either slice your bread up to dry out the night before or toast it in an oven for about 20 minutes. The drier your bread is, the less mushy it will be after baking. Plus, you'll get those extra-crunchy tops that are killer.

These kabobs have the *perfect* combination of flavours and textures. Serve them up with our ultimate Vegan Pulled Jackfruit Burger for a backyard vegetarian feast that even a carnivore couldn't turn down.

How to make Aloo Palak

The ingredients

  • baby potatoes
  • lots (!) of spinach
  • coconut milk
  • tomato
  • oil
  • spices
    • ginger powder
    • garam masala
    • salt

    The basic steps

    Step 1: Wash baby potatoes. Pat them dry. Coat them in oil and add a pinch of salt. Bake them in the oven at 420°F/220°C for 15 to 20 minutes depending on the size.

    Step 2: Cook all the spinach until it&rsquos wilted.

    Step 3: Reduce heat. Add the coconut milk, ginger powder, salt, and garam masala.

    Step 4: Use a handheld blender to blend the spinach curry.

    Step 5: Add one chopped tomato to the curry. Let it cook until it&rsquos hot and until the tomato is soft.

    Step 6: Now let&rsquos add the baked potatoes to the spinach curry. A quick stir and it&rsquos ready to serve.


    1. This potato soup is very versatile. If you don&rsquot have access to cream cheese, you can add an additional 1/2 cup of non-dairy milk, creamer, or cashew cream.
    2. Keep a close eye on the potatoes. Cook them until they are pierceable with a fork but not overly soft. If they are cooked beyond 10-12 minutes, the potatoes will get mushy.
    3. Make sure to use unsweetened non-dairy milk. Typically non-dairy milk is slightly sweetened and, when used, creates an overpowering sweetness to this soup.
    4. Top with toppings of choice. I love these options listed below but other choices are steamed broccoli, vegan cheese, and caramelized onions.
