Hoff's Potato Puffs

Hoff's Potato Puffs
Yields: 18ish Puffs
meat-free, dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free, soy-free, gluten-free

  • 6 Yukon Gold Potatoes
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1/4 cup Nutritional Yeast 
  • 1 tsp. Yellow Mustard
  • 1 tsp. Bacon Seasoning (optional)
  • 1 tsp. Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1-2 tsp. Sea Salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • Plain unsweetened Plant-based Milk

  1. Place Potatoes & Water in Instant Pot
  2. Set Manual setting at High Pressure for 10 minutes
  3. Manually release steam
  4. Drain Potatoes
  5. Using a Ricer (it will remove the peel), press each Potato
  6. Mix riced Potatoes with Nutritional Yeast, Mustard, seasonings & splash of Milk, not too much, dryer Potatoes will result in crisper Puffs
  7. Chill Potatoes in the fridge, they need to be cold & stiff
  8. Form Potatoes into golf ball sized shapes, I use a spring triggered scooper (no idea it's real name)
  9. Place balls on a silicone lined baking sheet or in a silicone muffin tray
  10. Air fry or bake at 450 degrees for 20 -25 minutes

Hoff Thoughts: I use Yukon Gold Potatoes because they naturally have a rich, buttery flavor and therefore additional fake butter is not needed.

Lazy Girl's Potatoes

Recently I came across a GENIUS kitchen hack and I just have to share it with you!

You will need:

  1. Drain & rinse the Potatoes
  2. Lay Potato slices onto to grille
  3. Close lid and cook at 450 degrees until desired doneness is achieved (start checking around 10 minutes)
  4. Carefully remove & Eat!

This does require some organizational skills in order to get one full can of Potatoes onto one griddle. (You can do it!)

One can really only yields a light snack for two people.  I really could eat an entire can myself (even as a side dish to a main meal), but I fear one can would cool off before a second can would be ready. 

I really like this idea, however, because it eliminates the prep time/utensils needed to create sliced Potatoes.  I also found the end product to be light and crispy on the outside, but creamy on the inside.

Hoff's Sweet Potato Chocolate Pudding

Inspired by this Jaroudi Family recipe.

Hoff's Sweet Potato Chocolate Pudding
Serves: 4
dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free, soy-free, gluten-free

  • 2 Jersey/Japanese Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 cup Plant-based Milk
  • 1/3 cup Cacao Powder
  • 1/3 cup Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  1. Stab each Potato with a few holes and bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour
  2. Allow Potatoes to cool enough to handle, before peeling & placing into a blender or Vitamix
  3. Add remaining ingredients
  4. Blend until smooth
  5. Place Pudding in fridge until chilled
  6. Try not to eat all of it yourself in one sitting, even though you can, IT'S A POTATO!!!  :) 
Hoff Thoughts: Be sure to use a store bought Milk for this recipe, when I used my homemade Almond Butter Milk, the pudding did not set up as well.
