  • 5 cups sliced potatoes
  • 2 cups dairy-free milk, plain unsweetened*

Cornstarch Slurry:

  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ¼ cup cold water


  1. Peel and thinly slice the potatoes – using the fine slice blade on a food processor makes very quick work of this.
  2. Submerge your potato slices in a bowl of cold water to prevent oxidation.
  3. Preheat the oven to 425 F, lightly oil a casserole dish, approximately 9x11.
  4. In a medium pot, whisk together the milk, chicken broth, nutritional yeast, and spices. Bring the sauce mixture to a simmer, stirring frequently.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together the cornstarch and cold water until there are no clumps.
  6. Pour the cornstarch slurry into the simmering sauce and whisk well. When thickened, remove the pot from heat.
  7. Drain the potatoes. Layer half in the casserole dish; pour half the sauce over the potatoes. Continue to layer the remaining potatoes and sauce.
  8. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes – or until the potatoes are fork tender.
