Easy Vegan KFC Famous Bowl
A vegan twist on the KFC Famous Bowl using Yukon gold potatoes, sweet corn, vegan cheddar cheese and Alpha Nuggets!
- 4 medium-sized Yukon gold potatoes washed (skin removed if preferred)
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- 1 tsp sea salt
- black pepper to taste
- 5 tbsp vegan butter
- ¼ cup chopped fresh chives plus more for garnish
- 8 Alpha Nuggets
- cajun seasoning to taste
- 1 cup canned sweet corn drained
- vegan cheddar cheese to taste
Preheat oven to 425°
Bring a medium sized pot of water to a boil and add in Yukon gold potatoes. Reduce heat to a medium temperature and allow to continue boiling until fork tender.
Season the Alpha Nuggets with the cajun seasoning on both sides and place into the oven to cook according to package instructions for 13-15 minutes.
Once the potatoes are finished cooking, drain the water and remove the cooked potatoes from the pot. Set aside in a separate container.
In the same pot that was used to cook the potatoes, begin sautéing the minced garlic with a little oil over medium heat until fragrant and golden in color.
Turn off the eye and add the cooked potatoes back to the pot with the minced garlic and mash with a potatoes masher. Stir in the vegan butter, salt + pepper and chives. Set aside.
By now your Alpha Nuggets should be done cooking. Remove from the oven and set aside.
In a microwave-safe container, warm your sweet corn and set aside once done.
Begin building your bowls with the mashed potatoes on the bottom, sweet corn, vegan cheese, Alpha Nuggets and garnish everything with more chives (and cajun seasoning if you want!). Enjoy!
