Broccoli & Cheese stuffed potato

Potatoes can be a great addition to different meals, however, they might also be a main part of your dinner! Today's recipe is a bit time consuming but the results are fantastic. Trust me, even non-vegetarian people were amazed by the surprised taste :) Unfortunately, I did not own large potatoes so I used different sizes, therefore, it was more of a hassle but truly worth it. This is not only delicious but also healthy and rich in minerals, potatoes are a great source of potassium, magnesium and all sorts of vitamin B, whilst, broccoli contain a lot of iron and sulphoraphane - a strong antioxidant which block the DNA mutations. Hope you will enjoy it !


5 large potatoes
1 medium broccoli
3 cloves of garlic
300g of cheddar cheese
hand full of fresh basil 
half chilli pepper
Salt & pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 180 Celsius degrees.
2. Place potatoes on a dish and cover them with plastic foil. Microwave them for 15 minutes.
3. Cut the potatoes in half and scoop out the middle into a bowl to create a hole for stuffing.
4. Steam the broccoli and add to the potatoes in the bowl. Mix well and add cheese, leave about 50g to sprinkle on top of the potatoes. 
5.  Chop garlic, chilli paper and basil leaves, place them into the bowl and mix well. Add Salt and pepper to taste.
6. When all the ingredients combine, fill in the holes in the potatoes, about 2 spoons in each. 
7. Sprinkle with cheese and place in the oven for 30-40 minutes (depends on the potato size).
