East meets west vegan baked potato fusion...

If you have been following this blog you may have noticed a lot of stir fry. That is not all I eat but, I happen to like stir fry and we have been eating alot of it lately. Stir fry over baked potatoes was my daughter's idea and it is really good! We melted Daiya cheddar on top. I like it with out the cheese but with the cheese is good too. I made the stir fry a little differently then traditional stir fry to make it compatible with baked potatoes. Some dinner plans that don't include stir fry are coming soon but until then here are some weird but really good baked potatoes...

1/2 a head of cabbage
1 1/2 cups  of snow peas
1 portabello cap
1/2 an onion
1 jalapeno (optional)
2 stalks celery
Daiya cheese
Soy sauce
worcestertshire sauce
liquid smoke (optional)
3-5 cloves garlic
3-4 russet potatoes
Black pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons flour

First wash the potatoes, poke them with a fork multiple times, wrap them in foil and bake them at 400 degrees for 40 minutes to an hour. When they are almost done make the stir fry.

1. Slice onion, snow peas, cabbage and celery into thin strips.
2. Mince garlic
3. Cut portabello in half, slice halves into thin slices. Mince jalapeno.
4. Heat oil such as canola in large sauce pan.
5. Brown the portabellos. Then add garlic and saute briefly.
6. Add onions, celery, jalapeno and snow peas.
7. Saute until softening.
8. Swirl in some mirin, swirl in some soy sauce, then just a splash of worcestershire sauce.
9. Grind some black pepper over it.
10. If you add the liquid smoke (we haven't tried it with this yet but think it would be good) now would be a good time.
11. Sprinkle with flour and toss to combine.
12. Cut across the tops of the baked potatoes and pinch to open, cover liberally with stir fry and cheese( if you want). Place back into oven briefly about 7-10 minutes.

As I said we haven't tried the liquid smoke yet, but think it would be good. We have tried them with and without jalapeno which were both good. Also we had them with vegan field roast apple sage sausages which was really good. Another note: more sauce is better in order to saturate the potatoes. See you later!
