A few weeks ago, I was the coordinator for the Share A Meal program, a nonprofit that has groups volunteer food and time and prepare a meal for the community, and the group that came in that week prepared scalloped potatoes. Oh, that used to be one of my favorite dishes. You know, that box of dehydrated potatoes and powdered cheese sauce.
Well, I had the Better Than Vegan book for months and never got around to making any of the recipes until last night, I made the authors version; sliced potatoes with a cauliflower puree with the addition of nutritional yeast.
It turned out bland and dry. It needed more flavor and sauce. But, to be fair, the recipe called for nutmeg and I forgot to add that, I think that would have been a nice touch to the sauce. I think of scalloped potatoes as being saucy and these were dry. The picture showed that it was dry. Next time I am going to make more sauce. Yes, there will be a next time because I think the recipe is a keeper.
