Creamy Vegan Potatoes Au Gratin

The perfect side dish to go with just about anything and you would never know it was vegan. The rich "cheesiness" is even better than the original.

Ingredients

  • 5 russet potatoes, (washed, peeled, and scalloped)
  • 2 cups almond milk, (unsweetened)
  • 1/2 cups low sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 tbsp vegan butter
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tsp vegetable bouillon
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp parsley, (and extra to top)
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • 3 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water

Instructions

  •  Preheat your oven to 425F.
    2. Wash and peel your potatoes before slicing. Use either a food processor with the slicing attachment or a mandolin for evenness. Once potatoes are sliced put them in an ice bath. Cold water and ice so they don't oxidize and turn brown. Leave them in there while you make the cheese sauce.
    3. In a small to medium sauce pan, on medium heat, whisk almond milk, vegetable broth, nutritional yeast, veggie bouillon, butter, diced onion, and all spices. Lower heat down to a simmer and stir frequently. 
    4. In a separate bowl mix together the corn starch and water until no clumps are left. Pour that into the cheese mixture and mix well. Stir for 5-6 minutes or until the sauce thickens up. It won't be super duper thick just thicker.
    5. Layer the bottom of a 2qt baking or casserole dish with potatoes. Pour half the cheese mixture and whirl it around to ensure coverage. Top with second layer of potatoes and remaining cheese sauce. Give it another whirl or shake to ensure coverage.
    6. Sprinkle top with vegan parmesan cheese for extra cheesiness. 
    7. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes remove foil and bake another 20 minutes uncovered. If you want the top extra extra crispy leave it in for another 10 minutes.
    8. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before cutting into it. Serve it up with anything you'd like and Enjoy!
