If you want a change of pace and a little spice to your regular twice baked potatoes, these Spicy Turmeric Twice Baked Potatoes are just for you! They are very flavorful due to the turmeric and cumin and a little spicy from the red pepper flakes. This recipe uses two potatoes, which could be a meal for two or a side dish for four. And don’t worry if you don’t have or want to use regular white potatoes… I’ve made this with sweet potatoes, too, and it’s just as good! Traditional twice baked potatoes are usually filled with dairy like cheese, sour cream, yogurt and butter. This healthy version is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and paleo (based on Primal Palate’s paleo guidelines).
