Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Rub the head of garlic with olive oil and place it into a ramekin
  • Rub each potato with some more olive oil
  • Place the garlic and the potatoes into the oven and bake for 40 minutes
  • Remove the garlic and let cool, return the potatoes to the oven and bake for another 20m minutes.
  • While the potatoes are baking, make the mushroom gravy
  • In a saucepan, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Add the onions and the red pepper cook until onions are caramelized
  • Add the mushrooms and cook for another five minutes.
  • In a small container, add the water and the cornstarch, mix until cornstarch is dissolved.
  • Add the cornstarch and water mixture slowly to the pan and stir until all of the caramelized bits are dissolved, adjust the amount of water if necessary.
  • Add the Bragg Amino Acid and set aside.
  • A neat trick; Pass the whole roasted garlic head through the ricer, remove the skins.
  • In a bowl from your stand mixer, pass the potatoes through a ricer they will clean out the rest of the garlic in the ricer, remove the skins and rough chop.
  • Place the skins back onto the baking sheet with a teaspoon of olive oil and a little sea salt and place under the broiler to crisp up like bacon bits.
  • Now add the soy milk the Chipotle pepper, some fresh ground black pepper, and the remaining teaspoon of olive oil to the bowl.
  • Place the bowl into your Stand mixer with the mixing paddle attached, whip for 1 minute on high.
  • Place a mound of the potatoes in the center of a plate
  • Then shape them into a mountain with a fork and flatten the top
  • Pour some gravy on top and let it drizzle down one side to give a volcano effect.
  • Enjoy

    With the Devil's Tower and my Volcano potatoes we could start a new country where only cooks were allowed!

    You are so very clever! I love the movie and this is such a delicious culinary homage to the film. I'll climb that mountain anytime - and will love every delicious second of it. I think I hear the tones of the mothership...or is that my tummy growling?

    Great post - thank you!!
