Super Simple Suppers – Baked Potato
Welcome to Super Simple Suppers! On this Thursday series I am sharing simple vegan meal ideas that can be made in a minimalist kitchen. Check the recipe page for lots more great ideas.
Today is pretty simple. Baked potatoes are a gold mine for a simple, nutritional, filling meal. My husband is a big gravy guy so this time we did them up with a garlic dill gravy. They are also great with chili. Click through for the recipe.
Baked Potato - Whole clean potato with a few punctures in the skin (with a knife or fork) baked in a 350 oven for about an hour.
Vegan Garlic-Dill Gravy
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp flour
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder (or fresh garlic to taste)
- 1 tsp dill weed
- salt and pepper to taste
- approximately 1 cup liquid (water, milk substitute, green olive juice*)
Heat pan to medium high heat. Add olive oil and flour and mix with whisk. Add liquid a bit at a time and whisk. The flour works to thicken the mixture and as it cooks it needs more and more liquid. Add seasonings as you are cooking and maintain constant whisking. Cook till boiling and desired texture.
*I love using green olive juice in cooling gravies or stir fries. Only a little is needed because it is so salty but it adds great flavor.
Serve with a protein and green veggie.
Note: Bake up extra and keep a few in the fridge to chop up and fry for breakfast
