You’ve heard of twice baked potatoes before I’m sure. A baked potato shell stuffed with light fluffy mashed potatoes, cheese, and bacon. Sure it may be good but not healthy and very much not vegan. Gone are the days of the narrative that tells of vegan food being bland and boring. We’ve taken the idea of a classic twice baked potato and gave it a little twist. Our MUSHROOM AND HUMMUS TWICE BAKED POTATOES are garlicky, loaded with plant based protein, and have “meaty” flavor from mushrooms. So let’s get cooking!
