Oh how I love scalloped potatoes! It’s just the ultimate comfort food. My vegan version of homemade scalloped potatoes is super easy to make, incredibly creamy, garlicky, and soooo delicious!

I used cashews and nutritional yeast as a base for the creamy sauce, which is always a winning combination! The cashews make the sauce super creamy and rich and the nutritional yeast gives it a nice cheesy touch.

And the best thing is that it’s so much healthier than heavy cream sauces! Yay! I mean who could say no to tender and soft potato slices in a rich, creamy, and garlicky sauce?

STEP 1: Preheat the oven to 375 °F. Peel the potatoes and thinly slice them. Generously grease a baking dish with vegan butter or margarine.

STEP 2: Now make the sauce. Combine all of the ingredients for the sauce in a high speed blender and blend until smooth. Spread about half of the potato slices into the bottom of the prepared baking dish.

STEP 3: Top with about half of the sauce.

STEP 4: Cut the onion into thin slices. Heat some oil in a pan and sauté the onion for about 3 minutes. After 2 minutes add the garlic. Equally divide the onion and the garlic on the first layer of potatoes. 

STEP 5: Add a second layer of potatoes with the remaining potatoes. Top with the remaining sauce.

What kind of potatoes should I use for scalloped potatoes? 

When you make scalloped potatoes, it’s best to use starchy potatoes, for example Russet or Yukon Gold. They will thicken the sauce and become nice and tender. 

Waxy potatoes will most likely be too firm after being baked. 

Do I have to soak the cashews first? 

No, if you’re using a high speed blender like a Vitamix or a similar product, you don’t have to soak the cashews first. However, if you want to make it easier for your blender, you can soak them for 30 minutes in hot water or even overnight.
