I am in a ‘bake’ super zone presently – every cell of my body tells me to create bakes, to fuse, to go with my creative instinct – which I have to say is working overtime – and I can barely keep up with it. Now, I have created a most wondrous bake – after tasting it, I was lost for words! I merged the flavors of the Middle East with a touch of Greek and Turkish, and I simply couldn't believe the taste of this. You are going to love it! For best results, make, bake, and also share with non-vegans!

Legendary ‘No-Lamb’ Middle Eastern-Style Bake

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan

Ingredients

For the Sauce

  • 2 Tbsp (30 ML) olive oil
  • 3 spring onions, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 400g tin tomato pulp (chopped canned tomatoes)
  • 2½ cups vegan mince meat (vegan ground crumble)
  • 6 to 8 sundried tomato halves, chopped
  • ¼ red pepper chopped
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil (if possible unflavoured)
  • 1 tsp dried mint
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • ¼ cup water
  • salt to taste
  • a drizzle of olive oil

For the Cheese Sauce

  • 2 cups (500 mL) soy milk, or other non-sweetened milk
  • 1 Tbsp all-purpose plain flour
  • 3 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp fine garlic granules
  • salt (don’t omit)
  • a knob of vegan butter or margarine
  • ¼ tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp vegetable stock powder or granules
  • a little water if needed

For the Vegetable Layers

  • 1 large eggplant/aubergine, cut lengthways  fried in a griddle pan and set aside
  • 2 medium courgettes/zucchini cut lengthways fried in a griddle pan and set aside

Extras

  • olive oil for greasing
  • 2 cups vegan grated cheese of your choice
  • ground paprika (for dusting the top)

Preparation

For the Sauce

  1. Heat up the oil in your frying pan (I used a cast iron skillet), and fry your spring onions until slightly golden.
  2. Next, stir in your garlic, and mix until it is slightly golden.
  3. Then add your red pepper and tomato puree, and mix for a couple of minutes.
  4. Now add your vegan mince, and mix again. Then add the remaining ingredients, and simmer gently for 20 minutes until the sauce thickens.
  5. Taste for salt, and set aside.

For the Cheese Sauce

  1. Place all the ingredients in a ‘milk’ pan and whisk.
  2. Heat the mixture up, mixing virtually non-stop, until you have a thickish consistency.  Lower the heat, and continue cooking for a further minute or so.

To Assemble

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 375ºF (190ºC)
  2. Grease a suitable Pyrex (or similar) oven dish (mine was around 7” diameter, 3” deep) then place the eggplant slices across the base and sides of the dish, so that they overlap one another.  Then add half your ‘meat sauce’ to the base, followed by the zucchini slices, and half of the cheese sauce (try to even the ingredients out with the back of a large spoon).
  3. Next, add the rest of the meat sauce, then cover with a mixture of the remaining eggplant and zucchini slices – don’t worry, there won’t be enough to seal it, but that’s exactly what we want for the top – a random mix of things.
  4. Then add the remaining cheese sauce, any grated or cut up vegan cheese, and finally sprinkle on some paprika with a drizzle of olive oil. Bake in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes, and remove when it’s really golden. Allow to cool down for 20 minutes before serving, as it will be piping hot.  This can also be made a day ahead. Enjoy !

Notes

For those of you who don’t like vegan ‘faux meat,’ you may use a mixture of pre-cooked puy lentils and chopped nuts of your choice. Use in the same way as if you were using the faux meat in the recipe and follow the method as normal.

Happiness is all i see now, i never thought that one day i will live on earth cured of this virus. i have been suffering of this deadly virus "HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS" since 7 years ago. I have spent a lot of money on drugs and going from one hospital to another, from churches to churches, hospitals has been my everyday residence, constant checks up have been my hobby not until one day, i decided to share my situation to a very close friend of mine and she was very upset with me for not telling her ever since that she knows of one doctor called Dr Orjiin who helps people in curing their HERPES. quickly i contacted his email: [email protected] been giving to me by Carolyn, just to give him a test i spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which i did, he told me that he was going to send a herbal cure for me, which he did and thereafter i received it and after using the herbal cure within a weeks and two days i was totally cured, i had to go back to the same hospital that has never helped me and behold i was confirmed negative by my doctor, so today i am here to spread the good-news of my life on how Dr Orjiin saved me from the nightmare and outbreaks of HERPES. You can contact him via email: [email protected] if you are still in my past situation...I bet you, you\'re going to be happy and feel alive again just as i am right now..

Health is not just physical health, but also mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. An important part of the healing process for me is to be active in HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS education, support and advocacy. I volunteer in a number of HSV organizations, and in particular Positive Women, because the impact of HSV on women is very different than from men. As once a positive person, I will forever be grateful to God Almighty and Doctor Idahosa to reach me when i thought it is all over, Today am happy with my family living free after the medical doctor have confirmed my HSV status Negative, I have never in my life believed that HSV could be cured by any herbal medicine, I want to make sure that HSV never happens to anyone else. We can\'t prevent HSV by punishment, by stigma and discrimination. It\'s only through building a safe, supportive and caring environment, that positive people still have hope and they should contact Dr Idahosa with this email: [email protected] so they can once again be visible in our community, to educate and advocate, to take better care of ourselves and our families. We\'re someone\'s daughter, partner, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt. When we have HSV, it impacts on our families too. kindly contact him today and leave carefree, mind you, this spell doctor also have remedy for the following:HIV AIDS, HERPES 1 AND 2, MND, Epilepsy, Leukemia, Asthma, Cancer, Gonorrhea e.t.c.Good luck.

I never thought it was necessary to share this testimony but I realized it will be selfishness on my path after experiencing such a great and amazing healing after the use of Dr okaka herbs. my name is mariam peters, Am from South Africa but based in the united states,I had suffered from HIV for almost 3 years before I came to know a great herbal doctor called okaka who I knew through a testimony shared on the internet about his great works, how he cured people with different health problems like HIV, herpes, cold sore, warts, kidney problem and so many more I cant remember now, I didn\'t believe it at first because there are numerous testimonials online and I have fallen into wrong hands before so I was relaxed although I really need a solution to my problem. when I saw that particular testimony that faithful day it picked on my interest then I decided to contact him so I wrote him thru his email and he responded and guided me through some process and I acted in accordance and my package was sent to me just like he promised. he told me the duration of time I was to take it which I did and after additional 5 days I went for a medical checkup as he directed and so my greatest surprise there was no trace of HIV in my system, I was texted HIV negative and I was so happy to the point that I cried out tears of joy because I have been made to believe by my doctor that there is no true remedy to totally cure HIV but with Dr okaka herbs I have been set free from HIV. Dr okaka God will continue to bless you for the good you re doing globally in the lives of people. I will leave to remember your good work in my life forever sir. if you need help with that your health problem to be solved for good then I can only recommend Dr okaka for you because his herbs worked for me. contact him and share your testimony too. contact him with [email protected] please dont forget to tell him mariam peters directed you.
