Total Time: 45 minutes
- All-purpose flour: 110g (¾ cup)
- Warm water: 60ml (¼ cup)
- Vegetable oil: 30ml (2 ¼ tbsp)
- A pinch of salt
- 1 medium potato
- Vegan cheese: 120g (1 cup)
- Prepare the Dough: In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour with a pinch of salt. Pour in the warm water and vegetable oil, then knead the ingredients until a smooth dough forms. Cover the dough and set it aside to rest for 15-20 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld and the dough to relax.
- Prepare the Filling: While the dough rests, prepare the filling by mashing a hot potato using a potato masher. Allow the mashed potato to cool down slightly, ready to be incorporated into the focaccia.
- Assemble the Focaccia: Roll out the rested dough into a thin disk, ensuring it’s large enough to accommodate the filling. Sprinkle two-thirds of the vegan cheese evenly over the surface of the dough. Then, spread the mashed potato over the cheese layer, followed by the remaining vegan cheese. Carefully pinch the edges of the dough together to encase the filling securely.
- Cooking in a Pan: Heat a non-stick pan or cast iron pan over medium heat and add a bit of vegetable oil to prevent sticking. Carefully transfer the assembled focaccia to the heated pan and cook for approximately 5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy.
- Serve and Enjoy: Once cooked to perfection, remove the focaccia from the pan and transfer it to a cutting board. Slice the focaccia into portions and serve immediately, allowing the gooey vegan cheese to melt enticingly with each bite.
