These are the ultimate twice-baked potatoes that had us talking for days! Fresh russet potatoes are baked to perfection and then carefully scooped and swirled with plant butter, delicious creamy vegan cheddar cheese, and a few other of our healthy vegan favorites. These vegan twice-baked potatoes are covered in cheese sauce before the baking finale.



2 large Russet potatoes

2 teaspoons olive oil

1 tsp sea salt


1/4 cup vegan cheddar shreds

3 Tablespoons of almond milk (unsweetened, unflavored)

5 Tablespoons of plant butter

1/4 cup vegan cream cheese (I used Kite Hill Almond Milk Cream Cheese)

1 Tablespoon nutritional yeast


1 cup vegan cheddar shreds

6 Tablespoons almond milk (unflavored, unsweetened)

1/8 tsp crushed red pepper (optional)


  1. Preheat:  Preheat oven to 450°F
  2. Wash:  Wash the potatoes thoroughly, removing all soil.  Pat dry and poke the potatoes with a knife to the center 3-4 times.
  3. Rub:  Rub the potato skins with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt.
  4. Wrap:  Wrap tightly in foil.
  5. Bake:  Bake for 1 hour.
  6. Scoop:  Remove potatoes from the oven and scoop out the insides being careful not to tear the skin.
  7. Mix:  Combine cheddar shreds, almond milk, plant butter, vegan cream cheese, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, and potato.  Whip for two minutes with a hand mixer until the mixture is creamy.
  8. Bake:  Spoon potato mixture back into potato skins and place in a casserole dish.  Cover the dish tightly with foil and return to the oven for 30 minutes.
  9. Prepare:  Prepare the cheese sauce by melting vegan cheese and almond milk together in a small saucepan.  Add the crushed red pepper (optional).  Stir often until everything is melted together, about 4-5 minutes.
  10. Broil:  Remove the potatoes from the oven and spoon on cheese sauce equally.  Broil 5 inches from the broiler at 500°F for 1-2 minutes.  Watch closely to make sure that cheese sauce doesn't burn.


Tip: Garnish with minced green onions.
