With the last few days being slightly more busy then usual, having to pack for my Bali trip I was inspired to create quick meals and sides that don't leave all your time being consumed in the kitchen. That's when these delicious stuffed baby potatoes came about. They are full of flavour, leave you feeling full and make for the perfect side, or hey, why not a whole meal if you pack your plate full of them! These baby potatoes stuffed with black beans and drizzled in home made cashew cheese is a great way to spice up your spuds and impress those around you.
