-4 cups potatoes
-1/4 cup coconut milk

-Salt & Black Pepper, to taste
-1 cup vegan cheese (I used Daiya cheddar)
-1 Tablespoon coconut oil
-1 Tablespoon olive oil or vegan butter

-1 to 2 Tablespoons green onions
Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until tender.

Drain and place back into a now oiled or vegan buttered pot. Add the coconut milk, 1/2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast, salt and pepper. Beat on medium-low speed or mash with a potato masher until fluffy and lump free. Stir in 1/4 cup vegan cheese, vegan bacon bit, and green onions (optional).Transfer to a baking dish (I used a tart dish). Top with remaining cheese, 1/2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast, parsley, salt & pepper to taste, and drizzle with a little oil. Bake, uncovered, at 375 Degrees for 20 to 30 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted.

When the the cheese has melted and the potatoes are bubbly, remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before serving. Serve along side a main dish, with a dollop of vegan sour cream or plain. Be careful, they are hot and you will want to gobble this up quick. Enjoy!
