I adore cheese, and many of you know this point, but for today I have decided that vegan is another alternative of healthy dishes to make on some days. On meatless days I want something warm, delicious, and vegan. You have to try this version if you are a vegetarian who seek tasty and delish food dishes.

Are potatoes healthy?
Even though potato is a veggie, it isn’t that healthy to use frequently. It can’t be compared to arugula, avocado, or cabbage, that you can serve anytime and any days.
However, potatoes still have healthy nutrients and minerals beneficial to our health. Also, they contain fibre, vitamin C, potassium, and iron. Fried potatoes are unhealthy but fabulous and tasty. So if you fry them rarely and correctly, then these fried potatoes are okay for you.
Can I make them ahead of time?
If you plan big gatherings, then you can easily make them ahead of time and just stuff them before serving. You can bake the potatoes and make the fillings. Assemble them before serving. Warm them in your microwave or oven for some minutes until warm and soft.

15 medium potatoes or ten large ones
2 colourful bell peppers
1 cup mushrooms
1 yellow onion
2 cloves of garlic
Wash the potatoes. Preheat the oven at 350F (180C). Take a baking tray and lay some foil paper and put the potatoes. Drizzle some olive oil and season with some salt, pepper, and herbs. I usually use Herbes de Provence as they are super aromatic, flavourful, and just perfect for potatoes. Bake them about 40minutes or until soft and tender.
Meanwhile, sautee the veggies in 2 separate skillets. Sauteed bell peppers and onions, and mushrooms in another skillet. Sautee until tender and soft but not for too long.
When the potatoes are ready, take off the oven and cut them in the middle with a sharp knife. Cut as if you want to make a small pocket to top sauteed veggies.
