VEGAN BROCCOLI CASSEROLE
1 medium potato, peeled and coarsely diced
1/2 medium carrot, scraped and thickly sliced
1/2 med onion, peeled and coarsely diced
1 cup water
1 tsp salt
16 oz frozen chopped broccoli
4 oz firm tofu, crumbled
1/2 cup nutritional yeast flakes
1 Tbs lemon juice
pinch garlic granules
1 cup uncooked instant brown rice
10 oz can sliced mushrooms, drained
3/4 cup water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small saucepan, bring potato,
carrot, onion, 1 cup water and salt to a boil over medium-high heat.
Lower heat to medium, cover and simmer until potato and carrot are
tender, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, thaw frozen broccoli in a
colander under hot running water, then set aside and drain well.
When potato mixture has finished simmering, pour into a blender and
add tofu, yeast, lemon juice and garlic. Blend until very smooth and
creamy. Pour into a shallow, greased 1 1/2 to 2 quart casserole. Add
broccoli, rice, mushrooms and 3/4 cup water. Stir well and smooth top
of casserole. Bake for 40 minutes, until golden and bubbling. Serves
Substitution: Instead of frozen broccoli, you can use 1 lb fresh
broccoli (tops only), chopped and steamed briefly until crisp-tender,
then cooled under cold running water and drained thoroughly.
