Low FODMAP Stuffed Baked Potatoes Recipe

How to make these stuffed potatoes vegan?
To make these potatoes vegan, replace the butter for a dairy-free spread and the cheese for vegan cheese. And to make the dip vegan, use vegan mayonnaise and a plant-based alternative to sour cream or Greek-style yogurt.
*Make ahead tip:
You can bake the potatoes ahead of time and prepare them later. Baked they would keep good in the fridge for up to 2 or 3 days. When in a mood for stuffed potatoes just take them out of the fridge, cut them lengthwise, scoop out the soft part and start preparing the stuffing with the rest of the ingredients. Place the stuffed potatoes in the oven to bake for 10 to 15min.
*Use canned champignon mushrooms. The mannitol & fructans in the champignon mushrooms leach into the brine, lowering the overall FODMAP content of the mushrooms themselves. Just remember to buy champignon mushrooms in brine (NOT sauce) and rinse them well before using.
