My Garlic Butter Scalloped Potatoes are so incredibly easy and delicious. With just 5 ingredients you are ready to enjoy a gluten free and vegan potato recipe that you won’t forget.
Before vegan days one of my favorite dishes was scalloped potatoes. It was super easy to make so even I could manage to get it done at time when I didn’t know much about cooking.
Even without much cooking experience it was not complicated. Of course, it wasn’t vegan or gluten free but made with a lot of cheese, butter, and cream.
Now I realized that it was too long since I ate a real scalloped potato dish. High time for me to recreate one of my favorites in a plant based way.
It’s always a big challenge to see if I can do this and if it will taste like the the real deal.
I promise you: mission accomplished. These Garlic Butter Scalloped Potatoes turned out so great, it’s unreal. Better than the classic stuff.
I hope you’re ready for one of my favorite recipes before vegan days. My Garlic Butter Scalloped Potatoes are simple, garlicky, cheesy, creamy, satisfying, drool-worthy, addicting, and amazing alone or to complete every meal.
Shall we? Come on bard and let’s do this! Heat a sauce pan and melt the cacao butter.
Add garlic to the pan and simmer until golden but be careful not to burn it. Turn the heat off, add oat cream, garlic, vegan Parmesan to that same pot. Season with salt and pepper and mix all well.
This way we don’t need an extra bowl.
Next fill a casserole dish with the potato slices. Give the sauce on top and mix well. Sprinkle with some vegan Parmesan on top again, covered dish with aluminum foil. Bake for around 1 hour at 400°F.
Please note: when you bake this without the aluminum foil cover, the vegan Parmesan on top will likely burnt, we don’t want that. This will be really sad.
I tried this recipe without roasting the garlic. It was good but honestly roasting the garlic takes it to another level. So don’t skip this step, it’s worth it and will add so much flavor.
As you can see, I don’t use any starch or flour in this recipe, which is always helpful when you want to get a thick sauce. But we don’t need any starch or flour, thanks to the potatoes which are full of it.
It will naturally thicken when baking without any extras.
All right if you ever make this and plan to dive right into it, you will recognize a delicious and fantastic smell of creamy garlic.
Seriously this is the smell you can’t get enough of. Believe me your mouth will water just while you have this in your oven.
It is delicious on it’s own or serve it as a side. For example it will be amazing with my Thai Green Curry Meatballs or the White Bean Meatballs Italian Style for are really filling and complete meal.
