Spicy Cauliflower Casserole
Gang/Type: Main Dish
Ergibt/Yield: 2 Portions
For the mince sauce:
  • 1/2 bunch green onions
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 cup (240 ml) TVP mince
  • 4 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 cups (500 ml) water
  • 1 - 1 1/2 tbsp instant vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp agave nectar
  • pepper
For the white sauce:
  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) soy milk
  • 1 tbsp tapioka flour - alternative corn starch
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • pepper
  • 1 small head cauliflower
  1. Cut the green onions in rings, press the garlic and cut the cauliflower into bite-sized pieces. Either cook the cauliflower in the microwave (see notes) or in water.
  2. Heat the oil in a big pan and sauté the onions and garlic. Then add the TVP mince and tomato paste and stir well. Let brown for a couple of minutes, then deglaze with water and add the spices. Let simmer for about 10 minutes.
  3. While the mince sauce is cooking, shake all the ingredients for the white sauce until combined, pour into a small pot and bring to boil while stirring. Let simmer for 1 - 2 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 200° (390° F). Pour the mince sauce into a casserole, arrange the cauliflower on it and drizzle over the white sauce. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes until golden.
To cook in the microwave wash the cauliflower and put it wet in a microwave safe pot. Cover and put in the microwave on high power for 2 minutes. Then toss and bake for another 1 - 3 minutes, depending on the power of your microwave. You can buy nutritional yeast and TVP mince online, if you can't find it in a store. To cook in the microwave I use my Tupperware rice cooker.
