Yule love these!! a ha ha ha
SO I attended two delicious potlucks ( thanks everyone : D ) and I would like to share my very different very christmas dishes with you lovely people !
I feel like vegan christmas meals are typically nut loaf ( which is tasty) or a tofurkey ( I also make a very delicious home made tofurkey– i’ll show you some time)
But this year I wanted to be creative and avoid using a ton of soy.
And so I thought Red and Green.
What chu Need ( makes 12 3″ tarts)
Broccoli ( chopped into flourettes)
pie shells * Our compliments makes accidentally vegan pie and tart shells! awesome! – I do usually make my own crusts out of chickpea flour! mm! I’ll make them soon and show you! )
LETS GET STARTED!
Remove the shells from the box and place on a clean dry baking sheet Once the oven is finished its pre heat cycle place the shells in the oven for about 5-7 minutes or until they are a little golden – they will expand a bit.
While those are “browning”…. grab a frying pan or wok . Chop and sautee 3 cloves of garlic and 2 portobello mushrooms ( or one large) in a teaspoon of coconut oil. add in and and I forgot to take a picture of the sea salt … but just imagine how nice it would have looked! : p Here’s some mushroom shots instead
There you go! — anyways toss them in a pan with some more garlic and sundried tomatoes : D. I like to give broccoli a very light “fry” so that they are still crunchy and it’s better for you that way anyways : )
now grab that bowl with mushrooms in it! toss in 1 1/2 cups of almondmilk, 2 tbl spoons of tahini . chopp in green onions , black pepper and a dash more rosemary.
stir the mixture and add in the broccoli/sundried mix. ( I also grated in some carrots — totally optional) The idea is to have the consistency of maybe a pot pie mix — creamy / liquid y . It will almost solidify in the oven : )
hhmm what else….
I baked them for about 25 minutes.. just keep an eye on them if the tops feel too soft they need more time : ) I trust your judgment though … you’ll know when they’re done.
Turned out to be pretty cute! you can really see the red and green .
Oh and did I mention It kind of tastes like stuffing??! mmm : )
