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.

I’m Victoria Mack from New-York United States I never believed in Blank ATM card until i got one from Mr Wilson ATM hackers. I lost my job few months back after my divorce with my Husband. I tried everything positive to make sure i take good care of my kids but all trial fails, and i was in debts which makes everything worse. I was kicked out of my home and i had to live with my neighbor after pleading with her to allow me stay with her for some days while i figure out how to get a home which she agreed, but no one was willing to help anymore,One afternoon i was going through some articles on the INTERNET, where i came across a comment about a man who got a blank card worth $12,000 I doubted this easy magic and wonder where the money is coming from, i never took it serious thus so i ignored the comment, along the line i came across another comment of a lady on You-tube who got thew card as well from the same hackers, so i copied the email address: ([email protected]) I contacted them and few hours later i got a response and i was told that the blank ATM cards are for sale that i need to purchase one before it can be delivered to me, so i sold my computer and wire the money for the card and to my greatest surprise i received a call from the courier here in Alabama three days later that i have a parcel to pick up, i rushed down and picked up my parcel and without hesitation i went straight to the ATM machine and i made a withdrawal of $4,000 Usd at once and today i have purchased a new home and set up a new business. If you wish to seek for this blank card, kindly contact the email below: ([email protected]) add on whats-app +12675276921 to obtain yours today. I believe he can help you with the card and god bless you Mr Wilson for your goodness and please remember he just wanna help the poor citizen.

I made a very big mistake fighting my husband, just because he ask me to give him a child after 9years of our marriage. This created a distance in our relationship, and our marriage was falling out of controlling, but the truth is that i was telling him the right thing, that when the time comes we have our baby. and one day he say to me that he can not do this any more, that is over. This was killing me and i was really hurt because I feel like I am going to lose him for another women. We have been together for 9years, i don’t know what to do any more. but today all thanks to Mallam Abudu of [email protected] cast a spell and also send a pregnancy seed and oil down to me to drink and i was able to get pregnant. this make my husband happy and come back home. what will i have done if not for Mallam Abudu roots and herbal drugs he gave to me. again thanks to [email protected] if you are having problem getting pregnant contact Mallam Abudu for help.
