Clearly i have been on a cauliflower kick… This vegetable is so versatile its amazing and i am hooked.
This pie was so melt in your mouth good, nutritious and filling. Its the perfect meal just to sit eat and watch a movie.
2 medium sized sweet potato. Peeled and diced
1 Head of cauliflower
1 cup of green/brown lentils
1 bell pepper sliced
1 carrot chopped
2 cups of sliced mushrooms
earth balance butter
Nut Milk/Soy milk
1 onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, diced
Start cooking lentils first as they take the longest. Saute in olive oil onion and garlic until tender. Add bell pepper, carrot and lentils and about 2-3 cups of water. Add salt and pepper to taste. Leave to cook for about 30-40 minutes until lentils are cooked and liquid has reduced.
Put sweet potatoes to boil
Put cauliflower to steam. I didnt boil the cauliflower as it retains water and I didnt want a wet mash. When cauliflower and sweet potato are tender put in food processor add butter and milk according to your own desired consistency and taste. Add salt and pepper to taste
Saute mushrooms in garlic and olive oil until cooked
Now its time to just layer the dish:
Put in the oven to brown for about 20 min 350 degrees F
This has now been added to being a favourite… So full of nutrients and flavour but yet so simple. You need to give this a try. I have had it in a corn wrap with hummus and also with a bowl of vegan chilli.
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 1/2 cup of flat leaf parsley finely chopped
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp mint finely chopped
1 1/2 tbsp chive
4 medium sized tomatoes chopped
I eye balled the olive oil as I don’t like things swimming in oil. I may have put a tbsp of olive oil
As a vegetarian/vegan this is generally what i eat every week. It is always quinoa with some sort of peas/beans and a vegetable. I hate to cook so this is basically what i can handle :-). I have tried loads of recipes and they have ended up in the bin. Needless to say I basically stick with what I know.
quinoa, lentiils,string beans with mushrooms and roasted cauliflower
