Twice baked cheese hummus potatoes

A simple supper idea that requires near minimal actual work and still produces and tasty, healthy meal.
Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 42 minutes
Servings 1


  • 1 potato
  • ¼ cup cheese hummus
  • 1 tbsp dairy free spread
  • 4 tbsp dairy free cheese grated (optional)


  • Preheat an oven to about 180°C (fan).
  • Prick the potato a few times with a fork and cook in a microwave until it's cooked through. This takes about 5 minutes in my microwave, but it will also depend on the size of your potato. A knife should slide through the middle easily.
  • Place in the oven and leave to crisp up - about 20 minutes (I usually make my hummus while I'm waiting).
  • Remove the potato from the oven a leave to cool for a few minutes. Slice in half and use a spoon to scoop out most of the fluffy potato insides - leave a good thick "wall" around the outside, so the potato skin doesn't collapse.
  • Place the potato insides in a bowl with the hummus and dairy free spread.
  • Mash together until mostly smooth and then scoop it back into the potato shells. Top with grated dairy free cheese if you have some around.
  • Place the potato halves back in the oven for about 15 minutes, or until the cheese has melted if you're using.
  • Serve with a side salad (and more hummus).
