The Ingredients

This Scalloped Potato recipe is made with just a few simple ingredients: potatoes, onions, margarine, nutmeg, garlic, and the Mother Mix, our DIY vegan comfort-food starter. If you don’t have the Mother Mix, you can use the equivalent ingredients: almond flour, nutritional yeast, tapioca starch and salt. See the Recipe Card below for the quantities.

Leave out the garlic if you wish, but include the nutmeg -- it's a key flavour in the Bechamel sauce used in traditional scalloped potatoe.

About the Mother Mix

The Mother Mix is an all-natural, gluten-free dry mix that you can make in minutes and store in your pantry. 


Use it to jumpstart over 16 different creamy and cheesy plant-based recipes - from Spinach Dip to Scalloped Potatoes and Veggie Pot Pie.


You can also use it on its own -- just add water, blend, and heat -- to make a simple vegan cream sauce, delish over roasted veggies! 

Choosing Potatoes

You’ll want to use starchy potatoes, such as Idaho or Russet potatoes. You can also use Yukon Gold potatoes, which are considered an all-purpose potato. You can leave the peel on or off, whatever you like.

Choosing Onions

For the onions, you can use an all-purpose type onion such as white onions, yellow onions, or sweet onions.
