Vegan Scalloped Potatoes

I have been making these Scalloped Potatoes for years. They are vegan….parve… which is perfect for us! 

The recipe is from THE PLEASURES OF YOUR PROCESSOR by NORENE GILLETZ. The name of the recipe is Best-Ever Scalloped Potatoes & you know what??? They are so good, they may just be the best!

Here is the recipe, as it is in the cookbook , I don’t really change it at all, I do double the recipe sometimes, but here it the recipe to serve 4 people


6 medium potatoes,…. I use whatever potatoes I have on hand

salt & pepper

3 tbsp parve..non-dairy margarine

3 tbsp flour

2 tsp instant chicken soup mix

1 1/2 c boiling water

paprika to sprinkle on top before baking


Preheat oven to 350f

You will need a casserole dish. the size of the pan will depend on the amount of potatoes you have!!

  1. Grease the casserole dish & set aside
  2. Peel the potatoes. Cut them into thin slices, I use my food processor to do this. Put the slicing blade in & cut the potato to fit through the tube.
  3. Layer the potatoes in the greased casserole dish…salt & pepper each layer of potatoes
  4. If you have a food processor use it to make the sauce that you are going to pour over the potatoes… if not you can use a whisk & a bowl!
  5. In the food processor, mix the margarine, flour & chicken soup mix together ( or stir together in a bowl)
  6. Which the food processor on, pour the boiling water through the feed tube & mix until it is smooth (In the bowl, add a small amount of hot water to the flour mixture…stir to a smooth paste, then whisk in the rest of the hot water, whisking until smooth & there are not any lumps. If you get some lumps, use a strainer to strain them out. Put the strainer over a bowl, pour the sauce through the strainer & using a spoon press it through the strainer squishing any lumps. Scrape the underside of the strainer so that you get all of the sauce mixture into the bowl!
  7. Transfer the sauce to a small saucepan & cook over a medium heat until the sauce thickens…stir constantly so this does not stick to the bottom of the pan. The sauce will get thick & bubbly
  8. You can add salt & pepper to the sauce to taste
  9. Pour the hot sauce over the prepared potatoes
  10. Sprinkle with paprika
  11. Bake uncovered in a 350f oven for 1 1/4 hours until the potatoes are soft & brown


I sliced my potatoes in the food processor with the slicing blade… you could just use a knife tooI
Layer the potatoes in a greased baking dish.. I uses a 8 x 8 inch square dish, season each layer with salt & pepper
The sauce was mixed in the food processor until smooth then put it into a pot to cook it, stirring , until the sauce gets thick & bubbly
Pour the thickens sauce over the potatoes
Sprinkle paprika over top…the paprika did not come out evenly on mine!!!
Done!! I overbooked them a bit as you can see, so they were ‘crispy’ & a bit dry, but if you watch your time…they come out nice and saucy!!

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
