Vegan Loaded Baked Potato Casserole

July 1, 2020
When I was younger, I used to love when my mom made twice-baked potatoes for dinner. This dish is similar but instead it is deconstructed and loaded with standard baked potato toppings. My favorite addition to these potatoes is the green onions. The green onions I used in this recipe were shoots from previous green onion ends that I had put in a cup of water. They doubled in size in two days! This is a great way to sustainably use some of your everyday food scraps.

This recipe fits perfectly into a standard pie pan but you can use any similar size cast-iron or baking dish. You can also add some vegan bacon if you want to make this a little more authentic. This can be enjoyed by itself or served alongside some fresh greens.
