For this veganized version of scalloped potatoes, I made a classic roux-based sauce that contains garlic, unsweetened non-dairy milk (I used almond), vegetable broth, nutritional yeast and white wine vinegar! There is nothing complicated about the ingredients here, most (if not all) will be in your cupboard already! It is so simple, creamy, and rich.

  3. Line a casserole or baking dish with parchment paper. Spread parchment paper with coocnut oil. Place ½ of the sliced potatoes out in an even layer. Season with salt and pepper. Spread the sliced onion over the potatoes. Repeat with remaining potatoes, onion and salt and pepper. Aim for 3 layers at least. 
  4. Top with Cheesy Vegan Cream Sauce. Sprinkle with panko breadcrumbs. Garnish with dried parsley (optional.)
  5. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes.
