Ingredients
 

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

Vegan Tzatziki

  • ½ cup unsweetened yogurt I recommend using a cashew or coconut yogurt.
  • cup cucumber grated - 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.
  • Tip: pierce the potatoes with a fork to prevent them from exploding in the oven. This can happen occasionally when pressure from the steam builds up.
  • 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!

    Good flavors but a warning: For the benefit of newbie cooks, You need to tell people to pierce the skin of the potatoes with a fork or knife in several places before putting them in the oven, otherwise they will explode while baking. Also, after halving them, let cool, then squeeze the ends to loosen and make room for the filling.
