This is my steemkitchen contest #1 entry, it is a dish that reminds me of home in South Africa, we would have potato bake when we BBQ /Braai, and it is also eaten right here in sunny Scotland. I have been vegan for a couple years now so I have to veganize it, replacing the milk with plant base and cheese with plant base too, it still tastes exactly the same though, awesome! The trick is boiling the potatoes first, if you don't it is harder to cook and potatoes stay hard. So list of ingredients.

8 potatoes
2 onions
250g button mushrooms
35g dried wild mushrooms
4 cloves garlic
300ml plant based milk
100g grated plant based cheese
3 heaped teaspoons corn flour
Salt and pepper to taste

So if you want you can change the plant based milk and cheese if you want, I pick my own wild mushrooms, but you should be able to get it at the shops.

First I get the potatoes on the go, boiling them with the skin on, so they don't fall apart, don't worry they will be peeled eventually.

While that is cooking, start cooking the wild mushrooms in 700ml water,and a pinch of salt, we will be keeping the the left over water for sause.

image

Cook the mushrooms for about 15 minutes.

image

Once cooked, remove mushrooms keeping the water.

image

Chop up the mushrooms and start frying.

image

Then slice onions and garlic like so.

image

And slice button mushrooms too.

image

Throw the onions in the pan first and mix.

image

Then the garlic.

image

Then mushrooms.

Then pour in the left over mushroom water.

image

Let it cook for about 15 minutes. Then mix the milk and corn.

image

Then pour it in.

image

Sause made.

image

Once potatoes are cooked for about 40 minutes, peel off the skin, it just peels off by hand.

image

Then slice the potatoes and put them in a baking tray, first 1 layer potatoes.

image

Throw some sause on that.

image

Then another layer potatoes.

image

And then dump the rest of the sauce on top.

image

Then sprinkle some cheese.

image

Bake for about 40 minutes.

image

And there it is.

It is quite cheap unless you have to buy wild mushrooms, in total it cost me about 6 dollars,and with prep and baking about 2 hours. Thanks for taking the time to check it out.

Your toppings and sauce looks delish... definately one of my favorites to make.

Great dish. I could just about eat potatoes at every meal. They are a total staple in my house and considered a food group all their own. You say you go out and pick your own mushrooms? That’s really neat.… a true chef @gguy773.

Wow!!!! That’s so cool. Look at the spongey under belly of the big one… so how do you know you’re not gonna start hallucinating in about 45 minutes from eating some of these? I guess that would be the plus to picking your own 🤷🏼‍♀️

The wild mushrooms look great - all the best for the contest! ✨
