Mini Twice Baked Potatoes With Tofu Ricotta

This is a cute idea for both a side item or an appetizer. I like to call it a hearty finger food, if that makes sense. It harkens back to my use of the tofu ricotta in my Yam, Walnut, and Ricotta Rigatoni. You can make the tofu ricotta ahead of time and then use it for a variety of recipes throughout the week.

Use a smaller red potato for this because it’s small enough but still large enough to work with when you’re stuffing. You’ll get your protein fix in the ricotta and by adding in garlic and herbs you can add some nutrient density to the recipe.
