2 potato skins


  • 2 medium russet potatoes

  • olive oil cooking spray

  • 4 tablespoons vegan shredded Cheddar-style cheese (such as Daiya®)

  • 4 tablespoons diced tomatoes with green chile peppers (such as RO*TEL®)

  • 4 tablespoons prepared textured vegetable protein (TVP)


  1. Wash potatoes and puncture holes in the skin with a fork.

  2. Cook potatoes in the microwave for 5 minutes on each side. Remove from microwave and cut in half lengthwise. Using a small spoon, scoop out the flesh, leaving 1/4 inch of potato flesh in the shell.

  3. Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spritz the inside of the potato shells with olive oil cooking spray. Set potatoes in the air fryer basket, hollowed-out side up.

  4. Air fry until edges start to crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove and fill each potato skin with about 1 tablespoon vegan cheese. Return to the air fryer basket and cook until cheese is melted, 5 to 7 minutes.

  5. Top cooked potato skins with 1 tablespoon diced tomatoes and 1 tablespoon textured vegetable protein.

Cook's Notes:

Any shredded plant-based cheese can be used instead of vegan Cheddar.

Instead of TVP, you can also use plant-based 'meat' crumbles.
