Looking for an excellent main to go with these awesome "old fashioned" scalloped potatoes?
Why not try my delicious Lentil Loaf – Throw some green beans on your plate and you've got the ultimate comfort meal!
Let's get on to the potatoes, shall we…
You will need:
1 medium Onion, sliced
3-4 medium sized Potatoes, sliced about 1/4 inch thick (I use just regular, white ones)
1/4 Cup Non Dairy Milk (I use Soy)
3 Tbsp Butter (I use Earth Balance)
2 Cups Veggie Broth
3 Tbsp Flour (I use Bob's Gluten Free All Purpose. Rice flour works too)
2 Tbsp Fresh Parsley
Nutritional Yeast, optional
Salt and Pepper
Preheat oven to 375
Grease an 8×8 baking dish and begin layering in like so:
potato, onion slices, a little salt and pepper.
If you are adding in nutritional yeast, add a few shakes between each layer as well.
In to a pot, on medium heat, melt 3 Tbsp butter
Once melted add in 3 Tbsp Flour
Whisk together for about 1 minute; we are making a paste (the base of your cream sauce!)
Now add in 2 cups veggie broth.
Continue whisking and cooking on medium heat until sauce begins to thicken.
Once sauce is a little thick, remove from heat.
Now stir in 1/4 cup non dairy milk, 2 Tbsp Fresh Parsley and a little salt and pepper to taste.
Pour sauce over potatoes.
If you think your sauce has thickened up too much, add a Tbsp or so of water – Not too much!! Your potatoes have more liquid then they look..
Cover dish with foil (poking some holes).
Place dish into the oven on a baking sheet. You do not want an overflowing mess in the oven.
Bake potatoes for 45 minutes.
Remove foil (the potatoes will still be very liquidy at this point, don't panic) –
Turn temp up to 400° and Continue baking for another 30-35 minutes or until sauce has thickened and potatoes are fork tender.
TIP: Potatoes continue cooking even once removed from the oven, this is why you want them "just" fork tender.
Scalloped Potatoes take time.. and slow cooking ensures a delicious outcome!
Remove from oven and allow to rest 10-15 minutes.
