Recipe by Kozmic Blues
Awesome recipe from my NEW favorite cookbook, Student's GO VEGAN Cookbook. Non-vegans, feel free to add some grated sharp cheddar or parmesan to the filling before you re-stuff the potato skin. This recipe serves one, but can easily be doubled or tripled. And, feel free to microwave the potatoes if you are short on time.
- 1 russet potato
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 large garlic clove, minced
- 1⁄2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
