You say potato, I say bake it, whip it with cashews, a few spices, and bake it again.

Twice baked potatoes are a great, tasty way to share your love this holiday season.  No need for butter, cheese or sour cream in these bad boys.  Just some good, ol’ fashioned cashew cream and a pinch of love.



Recipe by Jentry Lee Hull

Vegan, gluten free, dairy free, soy free

Yields 12 potato halves


  • 6 red potatoes
  • 1 ½ cup raw, unsalted cashews, soaked for at least 1 hr.*
  • ¾ cup water + more (for soaking cashews)
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp. nutritional yeast
  • ½ tsp. salt, or to taste
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. onion powder
  • paprika, for garnish
  • chives thinly sliced, for garnish
  • 2-4 Tbsp. plant milk, for potato mixture


  • Soak cashews in cold water for at least one hour. If you have a high-powered blender (i.e. Vitamix or Blendtec), you can soak for 20 minutes and the mixture should still be creamy.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Scrub potatoes, pat dry and poke shallow holes in each potato.
  • Bake potatoes for 35-45 minutes, or until tender (squeeze using an oven mitt)
  • Prepare Cashew Cream
    • Once soaked, drain cashews
    • In a food processor or high-powered blender, combine soaked cashews, lemon juice, ¾ cup water, nutritional yeast, apple cider vinegar, salt, garlic powder, and onion powder.
    • Blend for a couple minutes until mixture is creamy and smooth. Time may vary depending on the appliance you’re using.
  • Once potatoes are cooked, cut in half (be careful of steam) and scoop out the center leaving a little potato at the bottom of each skin.
  • Combine potato flesh and cashew cream mixture in a mixing bowl. Mix, using a hand mixer or standing mixture, until potatoes are fluffy and creamy.  Add plant milk to thin out and adjust seasonings to taste.
  • Scoop about ¼ cup of the potato mixture back into each potato, place potatoes on a baking sheet, sprinkle with paprika and bake for another 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Once baked, remove potatoes from heat, garnish with chives and serve.


Cheers to your health!
