  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 lbs Russet potatoes peeled + thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon potato starch or corn, tapioca, or arrowroot starch
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F. Grease an 8-inch square baking dish with the coconut oil.

  2. Peel and slice the potatoes to 1/8 inch thickness.

  3. In a small bowl stir together potato starch and water to make a slurry.
  4. In a small saucepan, bring coconut milk and broth to a boil with the minced garlic cloves. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  5. Once boiling, take off heat and whisk in the starch slurry. Return to heat and keep whisking until sauce has thickened - about 1 more minute.

  6. Layer potato slices and sauce in the prepared dish. Bake for about 45 minutes until the potatoes are tender.

  7. Turn on the broiler for about 5 minutes to brown the top of the scalloped potatoes. Serve hot!
