Vegan Potato Skins

Superbowl has always been one of our favorite holidays. 

Yes, it’s like a holiday in our home. 

Filled with cheesy-beefy nachos, chicken wings, hot dogs, burgers…you name it, we had it! I can just feel my arteries cringe when I think about it! Yuck!

This year was going to be the first of its kind. 

A plant-based Superbowl. 

Sounds less then appetizing but I was determined to make it delicious, healthy and guilt free! My parents would be over and I didn’t want anyone to feel deprived. One of my friends had mentioned to me that they were making potato skins for their big day. This inspired me to make my own Vegan version for ours. I chose these for “kickoff” and boy did they do a vanishing act! So good that you would never guess they were Vegan! Low in fat and calories in comparison to your regular greasy skins. Plus, they have a healthy amount of protein per serving to boot! 

SCORE!!
