COCONUT CREAM: Coconut cream is a dairy free alternative to heavy cream.

NUTRITIONAL YEAST: This deactivated yeast comes in flake or powder form and adds a “cheesy” flavor to this dish.

OTHER INGREDIENTS: ghee, almond oil, minced garlic, vegetable broth, garlic powder, onion powder, ground pepper, sea salt, thyme

HOW TO MAKE WHOLE30 SCALLOPED POTATOES FROM SCRATCH

Step 1

First, preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Add ghee and almond oil to a skillet.  Once melted, whisk in tapioca flour to create a thick sauce.

Step 2

Then, add in minced garlic, broth, coconut cream, nutritional yeast, garlic powder and onion powder.

Step 3

Bring to a light boil before reducing to a light simmer.  Add in ground pepper and sea salt.  Simmer for 5 to 7 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.  Then, remove from heat.

Step 4

Meanwhile, use a mandolin or sharp knife to slice potatoes as thin as possible, about 1/8 inch thick.  Next, arrange sliced potatoes in a casserole dish.  Then, pour sauce over potatoes.

Step 5

Cover casserole dish with tin foil.  Then, bake for 45 minutes.  Remove tin foil and bake an additional 35 to 40 minutes or until potatoes have softened.

Step 6

For extra crispy potatoes, broil on high for 2 to 3 minutes or until tops of potatoes are golden.

Step 7

Finally, remove from oven and garnish Whole30 Scalloped Potatoes with fresh thyme if desired.
