Thank you to Vegetarian Times magazine for introducing me to a really quick and delicious dinner idea: A dressed up Baked Potato!
I love, love, love the Pesto Potatoes recipe from an old article they did on microwavable meals. Despite the simplicity, these are packed with flavor and are ready in about 5 minutes with ingredients I can easily keep on hand:
- Baking Potatoes
- Artichokes (they suggest canned, but I love Trader Joe’s Frozen Artichokes)
- Silken Tofu
- Prepared Pesto
- Pine Nuts
- and Croutons
This recipe also inspired me to start thinking of potatoes as an alternative to pasta or rice as the base for a meal.
What toppings would you use to turn a potato (or sweet potato) into a satisfying main dish?
