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 am Jane Badmus from CANADA,I am very happy today because of what the great Dr. OCUSODO has done in my life. I got married to my loving husband 2 years ago and we were living a happy life together as young couples and everything was moving on smoothly without any problem,6 months later I went to the hospital for checkup and the doctor confirmed that I am three weeks pregnant with my heart filled with joy and my face full of smile and laughter I went home hurriedly to brake the good news to my dearly husband and he was very happy about the news and that night is a night I will always live to remember, to cut the story short after I have put to birth he was very happy, you have to see our bouncing baby boy, but along the line and all of a sudden he started keeping late night and going to club and doing things he don\'t use to do before, and one mourning I confronted him about his new attitude but he ignore my advice, but to my greatest surprise I discover my husband have a mistress in his working place and they were seeing each other after work hour. on one faithful night my husband came back home and started packing all his belongings and told me that he is tired of me that he is filing for a annulment not knowing that his mistress has cast love spell on him that was why he was acting strange so I told my friend happiness in my working place so she gave me this contact [email protected] or [email protected] an d ask me to contact him that he will help me to bring back my husband in noon less than three days so when I got home I contacted him and he told me that my husband is under a great love spell but he promise to help bring back my husband which he actually did within the period of three days. I was surprise to see my husband on one blessed mourning kneeling at my doorstep asking for my forgiveness saying it is the work of the devil that he did not know when he did what he has done and I forgive him and today we are living happily together. all thanks to great Dr. OCUSODO for his great help in my family for helping me to restore my lost joy to my family, in-case you have similar case or even worst than my own you can contact him whats-app Or call number::: +2349067457724

I have never seen a man as kind, wonderful, caring and helpful like Lord Kokose. I am a living testimony of his wonderful work and i have made a vow to my self that i will testify about him as long as i live. My wife told me that she needs a divorce despite all the caring and attending i gave her, i tried to begged her but she refused and went ahead with the divorce and ever since then i did not see her again so as i was browsing throw the internet i came across testimonies of people that Lord Kokose has help so i contacted him and he told me that a man cast a spell on my wife that was why she left me but i should not worry because he will help me destroy the spell cast on her and my wife will come begging within 12 to 16 hours. I did not believe him but to my greatest joy at exactly 13 hours my wife came to me fell on her knees and started crying that she did not know what happen to her and that i should forgive and accept her back which i gladly did and even since then we have been living happily.Do you need any help? then contact Lord Kokose via email: [email protected] or via website: http://Lordkakabumiraclouswork.website2.me
