I’m a sucker for recipes that costs barely anything to make – that means more money for me to waste on various different poisons to put into my body over the weekends. Shhhh. A couple of days ago I came across a Vegan Deviled Potato Bites recipe on Tasty’s Facebook page, and being the cheap ass Vegan I am, I knew I had to make them.
Unlike regular ol’ Deviled Eggs, this recipe doesn’t contain, um Eggs. Duh. Vegan! The Vegan Potato Bites center is made of Chickpeas, Garlic, Tahini, Turmeric, Maple Syrup, Salt, Cayenne, and a little bit of Potato. It’s basically bloody Hummus with a few other things added in and costs barely fu*king anything to make.
In order to give these Vegan Deviled Potato Bites a FEGGY look (fake eggy, how cute am I? Gag), I roast Salad Potatoes in the oven till they are soft and their flesh is scoop-able. Egg shaped/sized potatoes in Australia are labelled Salad Potatoes, no idea what they are called elsewhere in the world, but just use any small potatoes you can find.
Once your potatoes are cooked, you simply scoop a little hole out in the middle of each halve and pipe your prepared Hummus into the cavity. You don’t have to use a piping bag/tip for this if you’re too much of a lazy ass (just dollop the hummus in), but piping does make them look classy and sh!t. My Vegan Deviled Potato Bites don’t use very much oil at all, are Gluten Free, Vegan, and are as cheap as I am. Enjoy.
