EasyVegan Scalloped Potatoes 🌱 An easy & delicious vegan twist on a classic side dish. Created with thinly sliced potatoes layered between tender leaves of cabbage, creamy plant-based cheese and baked to perfection. You're going to love this simple 4-ingredient, gluten-free recipe!
Fill a 6 qt or larger pot with water. Bring to a boil. Blanch potatoes for 3 minutes. Remove from water and place in a colander to drain. Repeat the same process with the cabbage.
Coat bottom of baking dish(es) with a small amount of butter
Place a single layer of potato slices across bottom of dish, slightly overlapping each slice. Add a few small dabs of butter on potatoes. Sprinkle lightly with salt & pepper.
Place a layer of cabbage leaves on potatoes. Add several pieces of cheese on top of cabbage. Sprinkle lightly with salt & pepper.
Add another layer of potatoes, butter, salt & pepper.
Repeat the same with cabbage, cheese, salt & pepper.
Finally, one more layer of potatoes, butter, salt & pepper.
Cover with foil. Bake at 400º for 30 minutes. Remove foil and brush top of potatoes with melted butter. Return to oven and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes or until potatoes are golden brown. 🥕Note: I suggest either tenting the foil or placing a layer of parchment paper between the potatoes and the foil.
Allow to sit on a cooling rack a few minutes before serving.
Garnish with a sprinkle of fresh herbs – chives, basil, rosemary – your choice!
🥕You can use any type of soft vegan cheese - cream cheese, ricotta, mozzarella - that you like in this recipe. I suggest choosing mellow cheeses that won't overpower the delicate flavor of the potato and cabbage.🥕To prepare this recipe "Au Gratin", top it with grated vegan cheddar cheese and/or parmesan and breadcrumbs before baking. 🥕I suggest either tenting the foil or placing a layer of parchment paper between the potatoes and the foil. I don't like my food being in contact with aluminum.🥕A sprinkle of fresh herbs on top adds color & flavor! I like to use fresh chives, basil or rosemary.
