This Vegan Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes recipe may be one of the easiest side dishes you’ll ever make!
It’s really simple – start by slicing the potatoes, baking them in the oven until the edges are golden brown, then covering them with a creamy vegan “cheese” sauce you can make with a Vitamix in less than 5 minutes.
Garnish the top with fresh sage, rosemary or tarragon and, you can even turn it into a meal by adding diced onions and vegan sausage slices (like Field Roast) in between the potato pieces (recipe for that coming soon!).
Traditional scallop potato recipes use lots of butter, milk, cheese and even white flour.
This healthier version is organic, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free.

Tip #2: I used homemade almond milk, but feel free to use your favorite unsweetened non-dairy milk as a substitute.
Tip #3: I added the ground turmeric to give the sauce a “yellow” color but you can omit it if you don’t have any.
