Instructions
  1. Basically, you need 6-7 cups of chopped vegetables. Follow my recipe or substitute with what you have. Reduce cooking times for frozen, canned and leafy greens.
  2. Saute garlic, mushrooms, red bell pepper and onions with a few tablespoons of water to prevent sticking for 6-8 minutes. Add kale and frozen peas, cook for 1-2 minutes and remove from heat.
  3. Blend cashews, beans, water, garlic, yeast flakes, lemon juice, onion powder, thyme, salt and pepper for several minutes until creamy and smooth.
  4. Based on your preferences, simply pour cream sauce over vegetables and serve from the skillet. Top with garlic tofu, bread crumbs, croutons and fresh or dried herbs of choice. For a traditional presentation, transfer vegetables and cream sauce to a casserole dish, top with bread crumbs and garlic tofu and bake uncovered at 400 degrees until casserole is toasty on top and heated through the middle. Add fresh or dried herbs and serve.
