Jacket Potato with Tofutti Cream Cheese, Tofu and Sweet Chilli Sauce

This is one of our favourite quick meals to do, it’s easy to make and tastes fantastic. It’s actually inspired by a dish we had many years ago when we visited a local cafe, however it wasn’t vegan and we made our own vegan twist of the dish at home. So glad we did as it turned out great and its one of our regular go to meals, as long as we have the ingredients.

Jacket Potato with Tofutti Cream Cheese, Fresh Tofu and Sweet Chilli Sauce

Serves 1  | Prep 10 minutes  | Cook 1 hour and 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • Jacket Potato / Large white potato, average of 250g
  • 15 g Dairy Free Margarine (we use vitalite)
  • 60 g Tofutti Cream Cheese Original
  • 110 g Fresh Tofu (we use Cauldron Original)
  • 1/2 tbsp Corn Oil
  • 45 ml (3 tbsp) Sweet Chilli Sauce (We use Blue Dragon)

These are the levels we have found right for us, you can obviously adjust them to your tastes but we suggest you try the amounts suggested on your first try. By all means lessen the sweet chilli if that concerns you.

Method

1.) Clean and prepare your jacket potato, weighing approx 250 g. Put into a medium heated oven for around 1  hour and 20 minutes. This should result in a nice soft fluffy potato which is best for this dish. You can microwave the jacket potato if you prefer but they are never as good as oven baked.

2.) About 10 minutes before the potato is cooked it’s time to prepare and cook the fresh tofu. Chop the tofu into 1 cm square chunks approx. Then add 1/2 tbsp of Corn oil into a frying pan and let it heat up before adding the tofu pieces. Cook until they are slightly browned, which is around 5 minutes.

3.) Put the cooked tofu aside and its time to put together the meal as the jacket potato should now be cooked.

4.) Cut the jacket potato in half, add the dairy free margarine (vitalite) into the potato and then add the Tofutti Cream Cheese evenly over the potato. We then mix the tofu pieces and Sweet Chilli Sauce in a bowl and then layer over the potato. If you want to control the sweet chilli as your  unsure of the amount you could put the tofu onto the jacket and then add the sweet chilli sauce to the top to taste.

5.) Time to eat and enjoy.
