Baked potato with white bean dip is an easy to prepare vegan recipe that makes a great side dish or a light meal with a tossed salad.
Clean the potatoes, leaving the skins on, and remove any bad spots and eyes. Using a knife, puncture the potatoes to allow steam to escape during the baking process.
Bake the potatoes in either a conventional oven or in a microwave oven until they are tender.
Remove the potatoes from the oven and slice about 3/4 of the way through each potato in a left to right direction and across the center of the potato to make 4 equal sections. Using the thumb and forefinger of both hands, squeeze the 4 sections of the potato about half way down to flare out the top. (CAUTION: if the potatoes are too hot to touch, use a clean towel to protect your fingers before squeezing the potatoes.)
Place a large spoonful or more of the white bean dip in the flared opening at the top of each potato.
Serve and Enjoy!
The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
