Calling all vegetarians or those looking for a hot casserole side dish! I swear I’m not on a tofu kick but I do have another recipe with tofu for you. This week’s recipe reminded me of a meatless and carb-free shepherd’s pie. Sauté up a bunch of veggies, top with a pureed tofu, egg, and spice mixture, and bake!
Herbed Vegetable-Medley Casserole http://blog.vitacost.com/diet-tips/herbed-vegetable-medley-casserole.html
Preheat oven to 350. In a medium skillet sprayed with nonstick spray, brown garlic and onion. When tender, add other veggies and water. Cook until tender. In a blender or food processor, mix tofu, nutritional yeast, egg whites, and spices for 2 min. Spread veggie mix in a 13x9” baking dish. Top with tofu mixture. Bake 30-35 min until top browns.
Notes from My Kitchen:
Sub out other veggies as needed with what you have in the house. I chopped all my veggies in a food processor which made for quick work and small pieces. Season the veggie mixture too – it seemed bland compared to the topping.
Eat up with this dish! It’s all veggies plus less than a protein serving of egg whites in the whole pan. (Tofu can count as a protein or veggie so this can be your protein source or you can add more.) Works perfectly as a protein/veg meal or pick two snack. Feast with veggies, feast with tofu, and as always…FEAST ON!!!
