Let’s see…you’re vegan and don’t eat cow cheese, but you are craving something cheesy and au gratin. How about if that “something” had red bell peppers, thinly sliced potatoes and onions? And finally, a creamy vegan cheese sauce?
If that sounds good to you, then you must try this easy vegan recipe – Vegan Potatoes Au Gratin!
It all started when I was getting ready to make boring old baked potatoes for dinner, but at the last minute I decided to do something more exciting with them.
I found this Vegan Potatoes Au Gratin at the “My Vegan Cookbook” website. Even though I changed a few minor ingredients in the recipe, the biggest change was the original recipe instructions were for cooking in a microwave (which I don’t use), so I had to adapt it for cooking in an oven and it turned out just fine.
If you’ve tried any of my other recipes, I’m sure you’ve noticed that they don’t use a lot of ingredients. I don’t like complicated recipes that need more than 5 or 6 basic ingredients. Even though this one does have a fairly long list (long to me!), they are all essential for the vegan cheese sauce and well worth the extra trouble.
Tip: Corn is the #1 GMO crop being produced today. Make sure the cornstarch you use is non-GMO – very important! The Rapunzel brand below is organic and non-GMO.
Even so, it’s still pretty fast and easy to make as well. There are basically two steps to making this recipe – cutting up the potatoes, onions and bell peppers, then making the vegan cheese sauce in a Vitamix and then pouring it on top…that’s it!
