Quinoa Stuffed Potatoes with Artichokes and Basil

Tthese quinoa stuffed potatoes do take a little time with baking the potato and all. But, they score big points with me because they can be made ahead and even frozen. I also like dishes that are super tasty for me, but easy to adjust to make kid-friendly. In the case of my boys, I left the artichokes and capers out and topped them with cheddar cheese.

  • 2/3 cup fresh basil, divided
  • 6 ounce artichoke hearts
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 2 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ¾ cup provolone cheese (optional – vegan cheese or a sprinkle of nutritional yeast would be nice too!)

Directions

  1. Pierce potatoes with a fork. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake for 50 minutes or until soft.
