INGREDIENTS & SUBSTITUTIONS
You can use any type of potatoes for this Vegan Baked Potato recipe; White, gold, sweet. etc. I like to use small ones so you can eat more than one!

For this Baked Potato recipe you can use any type of milk – but I use oat milk since it is dairy free, vegan and gluten free. You can sub regular dairy milk, almond milk, rice milk, or any other plant based milk instead. The measurement of the milk in the recipe will be the same no matter what type of milk you use.
Shredded vegan cheddar cheese
For these Vegan Baked Potatos you can use any type of vegan cheese you want. I used cheddar in the recipe but I’ve also remade it with vegan mozzerella as well. Vegan creamy cheese would work well too since it is so creamy. If you use cream cheese you can mix it in at the same time as the milk so it melts and mixes with the potato.
