A Great Vegetarian Bake
I have come to the conclusion that the best meals are usually created when they are just quickly thrown together. When this occurs, I become amazed and in awe to see how little effort can be put into a great dish.
I made this dish with a few great veggies and some TVP. I hope you like it.
1-1/2 c. TVP
(Put TVP in a bowl with hot water, cover and set it aside)
1 can of small red or kidney beans
1 c. broccoli- chopped in small pieces
1 c. cauliflower- chopped in small pieces
1. Leeks- chopped in small pieces
2 c. kale- chopped in small strips
1 celery stick diced finely
1 c. mushrooms- chopped finely
1 yellow onion- diced finely
1 Tbs. Sofrito
(recipe on file)
1/4 c. olive oil
1/2 tsp. salt & black pepper
1 tsp. onion & garlic powder
1 T. dried Basil
In a small bowl mix all the spices, olive oil & sofrito together...set it aside. In a large mixing bowl mix together all the veggies & TVP. Then add the spices from the first bowl. Mix well and taste to see if any salt or pepper is needed. If so just add as you wish.
Once everything is all mixed, pour contents into a large baking pan, arrange it properly, cover with foil and place in the oven at 385 degrees for 45 minutes.
