Some of you may not know that I owned a restaurant back in Turkey, in a small touristy town called Turgutreis. The whole area is highly populated by British tourists from May till the end of October. At Family Tree –that is the name of the restaurant, we did English food. After running it for 10 years, the very people who worked for us bought it and still running it. They kept the name and most of the clientele as well.
We had quite a few jacket potato variations on the menu. Especially, the stuffed ones were quite popular. I will be putting them on VegFusion but for now I would like to start from an easy version like the one below…
2 large potatoes
¼ The Redwood Cheezly Mature Cheddar Style
1 small onion, finely chopped
Salt and freshly ground pepper
• Scrub the potatoes and prick with a fork.
• Set the microwave to 12 minutes on high and cook the potatoes until tender, turning them over half way through the process (you may need a more or less time depending on the size of your potatoes and your microwave). To avoid mess in the microwave, place the potatoes on a flat microwaveable plate.
• Cut a slice lengthwise halfway through each potato and add a knob butter to each.
• In a bowl mix the vegan cheese and sliced onion and divide it equally between the potatoes.
• Serve immediately.
