Freedom Friday : Spicy Baked Potato Steak

October 10, 2014

Potatoes are some of the most versatile roasted root vegetables. They change forms from toasty hashbrowns to fluffy, sweet mashed goodness, from thin shoestrings to lightly crisped potato pancakes. They can do anything! Their gluten-free natural state and endless meal potential make for  fantastic vegan, allergen-free meal options, like spicy baked potato steaks! An incredible fall-time meal for vegans and omnis alike. These vegan baked potato steaks can be dressed up with salad greens like arugula, or laid out with grilled peppers and hot sauce on a warm corn tortilla. Anyway you slice it (ha!) these “steaks” are delicious!
