  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Line a large baking tray with baking parchment. ​ 
  2. Lay the potatoes, cut-side down, on the baking tray and prick the bases all over with a fork. Bake in the oven for 55 mins-1 hr, until soft and fluffy in the centre. Cool for 15 mins.​ 
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan over​ a medium heat. Add the meat-free rashers and cook ​ for 2-3 mins on either side until golden and crisp. Transfer to a plate and, when cool enough to handle, finely chop. ​ 
  4. Add the leek, Brussels sprouts and 3 tbsp water​ to the frying pan and cook over a high heat for 5 mins, stirring frequently, until bright green and starting to soften. Remove from the heat. ​ 
  5. Scoop most of the fluffy centre of the potatoes into the pan with the greens, add half the lemon zest, half the chopped meat-free rashers and half the vegan cheese. Stir until combined, then spoon ​back into the potato skins. Transfer to a baking tray and sprinkle over the remaining cheese and chopped meat-free rashers.​ 
  6. Bake in the oven for 15-20 mins until the cheese​ is melted and the potatoes are piping hot. ​ 
  7. Serve immediately, topped with a spoonful of the coconut yogurt, a sprinkling of chives, the remaining lemon zest and freshly ground black pepper. Serve two skins per person with a green salad on the side.

Tip: You can swap the Brussels sprouts for any leafy greens you have to hand. If you don’t have a leek then use an onion or 4 shallots instead. ​

*Swap for regular yoghurt and cheese if you prefer.
