Baked Potato with Pea Dip

Best lunch ever! It's cold and rainy outside so baked potato seemed like a very fitting lunch. I'm still warm and full so it looks like it worked according to plan!

Baked Potato with Pea Dip/Dressing
1 medium potato
  • Par boil potato (I use unsalted water) and pre-heat oven simultaneously
  • Bake potato until the skin is crispy and the potato is cooked all the way through (check with a knife before you pull it out)
  • Add desired topping! I like mine with this pea dip- it's thick and satisfying so you forget all about cheese/butter, and it's much healthier!
Pea Dip
3/4 cup peas
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
2 tbsp vegetable stock
5 mint leaves
  • Cook peas in boiling water
  • Blend (pulse at first) all ingredients except stock
  • Drizzle in stock to reach desired consistency
This can be used warm or cold. Cold it's great with veggie sticks for a snack, warm it's lovely with steamed vegetables or thinned out with additional water it can be used as a dressing or sauce for pasta/vegetables/beans etc

I hope next time you're stuck inside on a rainy day you give this a try,
Enjoy! xxx
p.s. I've added a sample menu here
