My sister is extremely fussy when it comes to food. Ask her what vegetables she’ll eat and she’ll list off maybe 4 or 5. (and she’s vegetarian!) You’d think being twins would make her share my general openess to all kinds of food. But somehow, it doesn’t.
However, I am determined to make her food that she will eat. (and like!) So I asked her what some of her favourite meals were back at university. One of the few she listed were scalloped potatoes. I remembered in Vive le Vegan, Dreena mentioned how her mother would serve scalloped potatoes to appease her family. I decided that her recipe would be a very promising attempt. (Though I had to get rid of the onions as my sister loathes them)
And it worked! Not only did my sister love them, I loved them and the rest of the family did as well. Now, I’ve never had scalloped potatoes before but I can tell you these were creamy and delicious. I’m going to use this recipe as a base for the many future scalloped potatoes that will be at our dinner table. (i.e. need to get rid of the rosemary after discovering my mother has a dislike for the spice)
