Regular scalloped potatoes are loaded with milk, butter, and cream; but this slimming version has none of that! Instead, it uses a base of blended cashews for a rich and creamy taste and texture without the fat! What’s more, the cashews offer a bit of fiber, which is always good news for weight loss.
But even if you’re not trying to lose weight, I think you’ll like these Skinny Scalloped Potatoes even better than the fattening kind!
3/4 cup raw cashews
3/4 cup water
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon granulated onion
1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cups water – divided
