Fueled by Carrots

Vegan Loaded BBQ Potato



Monday I shared a recipe for a loaded baked potato… today I’m sharing another one, but this time with BBQ!

BBQ potatoes are all the rage at BBQ restaurants in Houston (and maybe other spots too), the only problem is that they come loaded with meat. Given my love for baked potatoes and my love for bbq sauce, I knew I had to create something!

I’ve been seeing lots of vegan “pulled bbq” recipes made with carrots, jackfruit, or hearts of palm, so I decided to try my  hand at it and make my own.

I had leftover no-cheese sauce from my tex-mex potatoes, and I added to this dish. Seriously, it is GOOD… even on it’s own, I have eaten it straight from the blender with a spoon.

I used KC Masterpiece sauce in creating this… I grew up using this sauce and I think it is the very best!8707887516_a9b3913700_z

Vegan Loaded BBQ Potato


1/2 Onion, quartered and sliced thinly

1 Garlic Clove, minced

Olive Oil, for pan

4 Carrots, shredded

1/2 - 1 cup BBQ Sauce

1/4 - 1/2 cup No-Cheese Sauce

2 Russet Potatoes, baked


Sauté onions and garlic in skillet with olive oil until the onions start softening.

Add carrots and continue sautéing for about 5 more minutes.

Add bbq sauce and cover to cook for about 10 minutes. Stir it occasionally, you can add water to keep a good consistency. When finished remove from heat and set aside.

Cut open the potatoes and squish them open.

Divide the carrot mixture between the potatoes


Top with no-cheese sauce

    Hi Vicki! This loaded potato sounds totally delicious! I like the idea of carrots better than jack fruit and the bbq sauce with the cheeze sauce sounds like a bite of heaven.
    Thanks so much for sharing this at Healthy Vegan Fridays! I would love to see more of your recipes =)
    Have a great week, Vicki!

    These look so good Vicki! What a great idea to sub in carrots and add BBQ sauce. It’s a little after 9am here but if I had the ingredients to make these at work, I’d totally make them for breakfast right now. 🙂

    We loved having you link up with us for #HealthyVeganFridays and can’t wait to see what you bring next week! I’m Pinning and sharing!
