Herbed Scalloped Potatoes

Sometimes I hesitate to share recipes if I don't yet have a photo of the dish and the process. But for the most part, that just holds me back from sharing. So from here on out, I'm going to share sooner, even if it means coming back at a later date with photos. This is one of those recipes. Each time I've made it, there isn't enough light in the late evening to get good photos. I'll be back with those as soon as I can, but for now, enjoy this new recipe. It's perfect for greeting autumn—also known as comfort food season.

HERBED SCALLOPED POTATOES

Yield: 9x13 inch pan / 12 servings
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 90 minutes

Ingredients

6 cups thinly sliced golden potatoes
2 Tbsp vegan butter, plus additional for dish (optional, see notes)
4 Tbsp garbanzo bean flour
3 cups organic soy milk, divided
2 slices vegan smoky gouda cheese
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 Tbsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp ground sage

Preheat oven to 350˚ F. Grease a 9x13" casserole dish with vegan butter.

Place sliced potatoes in the greased casserole dish in a staggered manner so the sauce can reach all the potatoes.

For the sauce, place the vegan butter into a medium saucepan over medium low heat. Add about 1/4 cup of the total 3 cups of soy milk, and whisk in the garbanzo flour one tablespoon at a time, incorporating the flour completely. Add the remaining soy milk, and heat to just below boiling. Just before the mix boils, add the gouda cheese. Once the cheese is melted, add the remaining ingredients (salt through sage). Bring sauce to a low boil, reduce heat and simmer 1 minute. Remove the sauce from heat, and pour over the potatoes. Gently shake the pan to encourage the sauce to reach all the potatoes.

Cover the pan with foil and bake at 350˚ F for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 60 minutes. Remove from oven and allow the potatoes to rest 10 minutes prior to serving.

NOTES: For low fat option, 1) use parchment to line the pan instead if you're following a low-fat vegan diet, omit the vegan butter by using a little more soy milk when incorporating the garbanzo flour, and 3) omit the cheese.

For a soy free option, substitute almond milk or a similar plant milk.
