Vegan scalloped potatoes with rosemary - Hive top chef

in Qurator14 days ago

This week rosemary is the topic of Hive top chef

When I think of rosemary I always think of potatoes. I also associate it with some kind of meat roast but I don't eat meat or animal products. I have made a scallop potato dish primarily on the stove and finished off under the oven broiler.


Scalloped Potatoes with rosemary
Four large potatoes (I used baking potatoes)
2 cups vegan cheese sauce
1/4 cup sundried tomatoes(optional)
3 tablespoons tomato confit for garnishing (optional)
3 tablespoons caramelized onion for garnishing (optional)
Fresh or dried rosemary (used dry Sicilian rosemary)

Vegan cheese sauce
1 small carrot
1 onion sliced
3 tablespoons rice flour
3 tablespoons tapioca flour
1 tablespoon butter (I used vegan butter)
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
2 cups milk (used soy)
Salt and pepper
Salt and pepper


Saute the cooked carrots and onions in butter.


Add dry ingredients and mix well.


Add milk, cook down until thickened and puree.

I blanched the scalloped potatoes quickly in boiling water because it was going to be cooked on top of the stove. My oven has a broken lower element.


Spread sliced potatoes in a large non stick pan or skillet that is oiled or buttered.

Pour cheese sauce on top.



Add rosemary, sundried tomatoes and black pepper. Simmer covered until the potatoes are tender.


Since my top element on the oven still works, I transferred the potatoes to a couple of mini cast iron skillets. I garnished with tomato confit and caramelized onions and put under the broiler to crisp up the top.

Tomato confit
seven to ten plum tomatoes fresh or canned
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon sugar or maple syrup or agave nectar (I used maple).
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar or balsamic

Caramelized onion
1 sliced onion
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sweetener (I used agave nectar)

Saute onions in hot oil in a pan and add the other ingredients. Cook down until browned.

Cook garlic in oil then add the rest of the ingredients simmering until moisture is evaporated.


Most scallop potatoes are usually a side dish on a table with a protein and other items.


With a salad and some buttered peas it was a perfect brunch for us.


Thanks for stopping by!

I love rosemary potatoes (with my own rosemary😀)...
I gotta try that Vegan cheese sauce!
Also the peas & salad fit perfect as sides.👍

Thanks @luca1777 the cheese sauce is easy and really does the job. I need more now for some pasta.

Buon appetito!
I will warm up some pasta now, too..haha 😉

Definitely going to try this sauce. Looks easy and tasty.

Yes it really is and the combo of nutritional yeast and cider give it a little cheesy taste.

Yesir 😉

This food is so many ingredients, that looks so delicious and very beautiful dish made me hungry now 😋. I have never eaten food like this, I will try it someday. Thank you, my friend. Good luck!!!

Thank you. This is a very Northern or American kind of dish. It's an herb that you find growing in colder climates I think my friend.

I never know this one and I don't even know what are rosemary. It looks good and I would love to try it someday (if I can).

Rosemary is not used much in tropical cooking I think but I don't know if you would like it after eating coriander and basil.

This looks so good. And I love rosemary. It's one of the few things I can grow myself in my apartment. Thanks for sharing!

Yeah I love how strong this plant is. I've seen it thrive even after a frost. Thanks for the window idea. I live in an apartment with no balcony.

This is a dish I loathed as a kid, but your preparation is nothing like the dish that haunts my memories. I love everything about it, especially those cast-iron skillets. This is indeed well-suited for the addition on nutritional yeast, which I'm sure completes this dish and makes the flavors pop. Nice work chef!
