Ingredients

  • 2 large russet potatoes potatoes
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 Teaspoons salt divided
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 Tablespoon ghee
  • 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk always blend your coconut milk before cooking with it so it is fully combined

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Wash potatoes and then take 1 Tablespoon of olive oil and rub lightly over all potatoes.
  • Pierce every potato 4 times with a fork.
  • Taking 1 teaspoon of salt, sprinkle lightly over both potatoes.
  • Bake for 60 minutes, or until just slightly soft when you gently squeeze.
  • When the potatoes have 10 minutes left, place broccoli florets in medium sauce pan and add just enough water to cover the bottom.
  • Cover and bring to a boil.
  • Stir the broccoli and cover again.
  • Let simmer for 3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and strain; set aside.
  • When potatoes are done and have cooled slightly, cut each potato lengthwise.
  • Using a spoon, scoop out the insides of the potato halves, leaving approximately 1/2 inch around the skin; place the scooped out insides in a medium mixing bowl.
  • Add ghee, coconut milk and 1 teaspoon salt to the potato and mash with a potato masher.
  • Taste and add additional coconut milk to make creamier or more salt, to taste.
  • Add broccoli and stir to mix.
  • Scoop the broccoli mixture back into the potato skins, ensuring each skin holds approximately the same amount.
  • Place potatoes on a lined baking sheet and broil on high for 3-5 minutes, watching very carefully so they don't burn. You want the tips of the potatoes to just barely turn brown.
  • Serve immediately with your favorite ranch dressing (I recommend a Whole30 complaint ranch if you have it)
