1. Vegan Scalloped Potatoes
Even though they don’t include any dairy products (milk, butter, or cheese), these scalloped potatoes are unexpectedly rich and creamy. They are the epitome of comfort food for vegans. A tasty sauce is made using almond milk, herbs, and spices, and a crispy almond coating is added to finish the dish. If you’re preparing food for dairy-free or vegan diets, this provides a tasty side dish.
