Before you start

Preheat the oven to 200°C

Bake the potatoes

  • Pierce your jacket potatoes and add them to a baking tray. Pop them in the oven for 40 minutes or until they're soft

Make the bolognese

  • Place your veggie sausages in a bowl and microwave for two minutes or until soft
  • Take a fork and mash up the sausages so they are a mince like consistency and set to one side
  • Add the oil to a pan on a medium/high heat and add the onions, celery and carrots. Let these cook down until they soften
  • Add the garlic and salt and mix through, followed by the plant-based sausage mix
  • Once this has cooked off for a couple minutes add the Italian herbs, tomato puree, pepper, sugar and soy sauce and mix together before adding the chopped tomatoes. Stir these through and set to one side

Prepare the mash

  • Take your jacket potatoes out of the oven and slice off the top, scoop out the potato in the middle and add this to a separate bowl (where we will make the mashed potato)
  • In the bowl with the potatoes add the plant-based butter, salt, pepper and whole grain mustard
  • Mash and mix together with a potato masher and add a splash of plant-based milk to make the texture slightly creamy

Build the potatoes

  • Fill the hollowed out potato with bolognese, then add a small layer of plant-based cheese and finally a dollop of mashed potato
  • Put back in the oven for 10-15 minutes
  • Add plant-based cheese, fresh basil and chilli flakes to garnish and enjoy!
