Savory Potato Bake

This recipe was kind of a fluke. It was originally intended to be a cheezy potato casserole. I tinkered with the recipe a bit and this is what happened. And, it was so, so good.

Savory Potato Bake

5-6 medium russet potatoes
1/2 medium red onion, sliced
1/2 cup fresh or frozen peas
a few dollops of Earth Balance
salt and pepper to taste

For the sauce:
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/8 cup soy sauce

Preheat oven to 450. Wash and slice potatoes width-wise into coins. Prepare an 8x8 baking dish and put the first layer of potato slices. Put 2-3 dollops of EB on the first layer and ad 1/4 cup of the sauce and some of the onion slices. Repeat for the second layer. For the third layer, repeat and sprinkle peas. Add salt and pepper to taste. Bake for 45 minutes.


  1. i love that potato bake...i'm actually making it tonight since i haven't made it in forever. i always add some flour to the sauce mixture so it gets a thicker consistency.

  2. I thought about doing that too, but when the sauce is thin, it soaks into the potatoes while it's baking. mmm.

    it definitely would've held together better with flour, though.

  3. that sounds delicious, i love potatoes soooo much!
