Ingredients

  • 4 medium- large russet potatoes washed and dried
  • 3 Tbsp neutral oil I used avocado
  • 2 Tbsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 1 cup cucumber chopped into bite sized pieces
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes chopped into bite sized pieces
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 Tbsp sun dried tomatoes chopped into small pieces
  • 1 can 15 ounces of chickpeas or garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed.
  • ¼ cup Kalamata olives sliced (optional)

Vegan Tzatziki

  • ½ cup unsweetened yogurt I recommend using a cashew or coconut yogurt.
  • cup of grated cucumber I used a small cucumber (you do not need to peel the skin off the cucumber).
  • 2 Tbsp fresh dill chopped
  • ½ Tbsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ small lemon seeded and juiced
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

Garnish

  • Fresh Parsley
  • Fresh Dill

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (204 C).
  • Line a large baking pan with foil. Place the potatoes on the pan and drizzle and rub with 2 tablespoons of oil. Sprinkle the potatoes with 1 ½ tablespoons of sea salt.
  • Bake potatoes for 25 minutes, then flip and bake for an additional 25 minutes, or until you can pierce a fork through the skin easily. Depending on the size of your potatoes they might need to be baked a bit longer.
  • In a large bowl combine the cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes, chickpeas, olives, 1 tablespoon of oil, pepper, ½ teaspoon of salt, garlic and toss.
  • In a medium bowl combine all of the tzatziki ingredients together and mix. Place in the refrigerator to chill.
  • Take baked potatoes out of the oven. Make a cut lengthwise splitting the potato in half.
  • Stuff the potatoes with the Mediterranean mixture. Drizzle with tzatziki sauce and top with fresh parsley or dill. Taste the potatoes and season with salt and pepper (optional).
  • Leftovers will last 1 to 2 days covered in the fridge.

Notes

Make it Your Own
  • Using large potatoes? You might want to keep them in the oven for a little longer than 50 minutes.
  • Short on time? Skip baking these potatoes and cook them in the microwave instead of the oven.
  • I recommend adding extra Vegan Tzatziki to your potatoes… it’s that good!
