Ingredients:

  • 2 large baking potatoes (pick ones that have nice appearance, free from bruises or eyes)
  • 1 pound banana squash (these are usually sold in already cut pieces)
  • 1/4 cup non-hydrogenated vegan margarine
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

Directions:

Bake the potatoes (not foil wrapped) until they are done and the skin is a bit “hard”. While the potatoes are baking, remove squash from skin and steam until they are very soft.

When the baked potatoes are cool enough to handle, remove potato pulp from skin with large spoon. Extra care should be taken when doing this because you want the skins to remain as intact as possible. While the potato pulp is still warm, add the squash, salt, and margarine until the mixture is smooth and free of lumps. This can be achieved with the aid of the food processor. Fill this mixture into the cavities of the potato skins and you may swirl the tops with a fork to make a nice design. Sprinkle with paprika if desired. Return to the oven at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes to broil the tops. If made correctly, these are TRULY DELICIOUS and have a very elegant appearance and that is wonderful if presentation is important to you. Good luck!
