This amazing vegan version of buffalo potato skins is sure to be a crowd-pleaser at your next party! Crispy potato skins are filled with shredded soy curls sautéed with onion, buffalo sauce, green onion, and almond crema. They are topped with guacamole and more creamy buffalo sauce.
Why This Recipe Works
Have you made baked potatoes in the air fryer? If you haven’t, you are seriously missing out. They turn out creamy on the inside and crispy on the outside. They’re perfect for making stuffed potato skins that are spicy, creamy, vegan, and gluten-free.
Potatoes: Use russet or Idaho potatoes for this recipe. They have the thickest skin and will hold up better than potato skins.
Primal Kitchen Jalapeño Buffalo Sauce: This buffalo sauce is my absolute favorite! It is creamy, spicy, and delicious!! It is keto and paleo certified, whole 30 approved, vegan, and gluten-free. You can find it at your neighborhood Sprouts.
Soy curls: Soy curls are an all-natural alternative to meat that is made from minimally processed soy strips. If you can’t find them you can make this recipe with mashed chickpeas.
Almond crema: I make my own almond crema, but you can also use cashew cream, vegan sour cream, or vegan cream cheese.
