Samosa Potato Skins

SomosaPotatoSkinsI have been busy working on creating vegan finger foods to serve at my daughters upcoming wedding. There well be mostly NON vegan guests and I want to be sure it satisfied vegans and non-vegans alike. This recipe is combines the flavors of Indian food and the popular potato skin. Samosas are usually a fried or baked pastry filled with a savory potato and pea mixture.

We discovered a recipe for samosa stuffed potatoes and I thought it would make a great potato skin. I was right! Of course I did my flavor tweaking to make it something that is sure to please.

After baking the potatoes, I scooped out the potato and added it to sautéed onions, peas, cilantro and samosa seasoning.

skinsThe skins were quartered and refilled with the samosa filling. I topped them with a cashew sour cream but a vegan yogurt would also work well.
