  • 3-4 tbsp Vegan Margarine melted
  • 1-2 Whole Garlic Cloves
  • 2 lbs Russet or Idaho Potatoes peeled and sliced thin, about 1/8"
  • Fresh Thyme Leaves plus more for garnish
  • Kosher (or Sea) Salt to taste
  • Fresh Black Pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Melt vegan margarine with garlic cloves and remove cloves before using.
  • Prepare a baking dish by brushing melted butter all over the bottom and sides.
  • Peel and slice the potatoes (trimmed square if you prefer) 1/8" thick. Try keeping the slices together in a stack, it makes for easier presentation.
  • Shingle the potatoes around the pan (any pattern you prefer, I went in a spiral). 
  • Brush with the remaining melted vegan margarine.
  • Season with salt, pepper and fresh thyme leaves.
  • Bake for about 30-40 minutes or until golden brown. I usually move the dish to the top rack of the oven for more even browning. PLEASE NOTE: All ovens are different, please keep an eye on how things are cooking. You don't want too much browning, but the potatoes need to be tender.
  • Allow to stand for 5 minutes before serving. That vegan margarine is HOT!
