VeganMoFo: "D" é para duas Recheado Pesto Baked Potatoes

O “V” Word continues the VeganMoFo month of food with the letter “D”. Hoje, a carta “D” é para duas Recheado Pesto Baked Potatoes.

The basil was dying! I had bought a beautiful green bunch of basil, put it in water, and let the aroma fill the kitchen. Some of it got used but I had a lot left. While I was debating what dishes to use it in, it started to wilt. I had to use it and use it fast. But there wasn’t enough to make a full dish of pesto so I decided to try the other herbs and greens I happened to have on hand: coentro, parsley and spinach.

When it comes to nuts, I love using walnuts for pesto. Mas, novamente, I didn’t have a lot and knew I wanted to save some for muffins. How about cashews? Why not? So I used a combo of walnuts and cashews.

Turns out this Anything Goes pesto was the BEST tasting pesto I ever made! It was bright and verdant with a deep flavor. And it’s so pretty with it’s green speckled color. It’s my new favorite pesto!

Now I just had to decide what to do with it. I had a craving for baked potatoes and again thought, por que não? So I combined the pesto with the creamy potatoes and the result was fun, diferente e delicioso.

Duplo-Stuffed Pesto Baked Potatoes

Serves 4.

For the Anything Goes Pesto:


4 cups mixed basil/parsley/cilantro/spinach
½ cup mixed walnuts/cashews
1 Tbs. suco de limão
2 Tbs. vegan parmesão ralado
4 dentes de alho
¼ xícara de azeite de oliva extra-virgem
Sal e pimenta a gosto


Put all ingredients into a food processor and mix until well combined. Refrigerate if not using right away. Cover with plastic wrap touching the top of the pesto.

For the Baked Potatoes:


6 batatas avermelhados
2 Tbs. manteiga vegan
¼ cup almond milk
Sal e pimenta a gosto
1 cup Pesto (see above)


Scrub potatoes to clean them. Bake potatoes at 400 degrees for about one hour or until tender.

Scoop the flesh out of the potatoes into a bowl. Add the vegan butter, leite de amêndoa, sal, pepper and pesto to the potatoes. Mix until well combined.

Stuff the pesto-potato mixture into 4 of the skins. Sirva ainda quente.
