Vegan Soyrizo Baked Potatoes – an easy, comforting meal.


  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 2 TBL olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 cups chopped kale
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 package soyrizo
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth, beer, or water
  • 2 TBL vegan cream cheese
  • 2 TBL nutritional yeast


  1. Preheat oven to 400
  2. Poke a few holes in the potatoes with a fork, place in the oven right on the rack, and bake until they are soft on the inside 45-60 min. I test them by squeezing them (with a potholder) and when you can feel the inside give they are ready.
  3. Meanwhile (when you have about 15 minutes until the potatoes are done), heat a large skillet over medium heat.
  4. Saute onions until just softened, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add kale and continue to cook for 2 more minutes.
  6. Add Garlic and cook briefly, about 30 seconds, then add soyrizo, vegetable broth, cream cheese, and nutritional yeast.
  7. Stir frequently and cook until heated through, about 3 more minutes.
  8. When potatoes are done, split them lengthwise and top with soyrizo mixture.
