Protein-Packed Potato Skins

Our Protein-Packed Potato Skins are filled with a delightful plant-based mix of potatoes, nut milk, chickpeas, sun-dried tomatoes, capers, onions, garlic and mustard. After mashing these ingredients together, they are stuffed into hollowed potato skins and baked to a golden brown. This recipe works as a fun appetizer but it can also be a main meal, complimented with optional toppings and a healthful side salad.
