Squash Mushroom and Zucchini Phyllo Torte

 

1 Small Butternut Squash, Peeled and Diced

1 Zucchini, Diced

1 Cup Diced Mushrooms of Choice (Crimini, Oyster or Shiitake)

3 Cloves Garlic, Minced

6 Ounces (Vegan) Cream Cheese

¾ Cup (Vegan) Sour Cream

1 Teaspoon Turmeric

1 Tablespoon Poultry Seasoning (Rosemary, Thyme and Sage)

Salt and Lemon Pepper to Taste

Avocado Oil or Sunflower Oil or Olive Oil for Frying

6 Pieces Phyllo Pastry

4 Tablespoons (Vegan) Butter, Melted

12 x 8 x 4 Glass Pan

 

Place a good amount of oil in a heated frying pan. Add the garlic and sauté for a couple of minutes. Next, add the squash, zucchini, and mushrooms and sauté for 10 minutes. Add the cream cheese and sour cream, herbs, spices, salt and pepper. Stir until the cream cheese melts and allow to cool slightly.

 

Butter or oil the bottom of a glass baking pan. Cut the phyllo dough to be double the size of the pan. Add one layer of phyllo dough at a time and brush with melted butter. Add the squash mixture and fold the phyllo on top. Brush all remaining butter on the top.

 

Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes until dough turns brown. Allow to stand for 10 minutes before cutting and serving. This is a good dish to make ahead of time and then reheat for special occasions.

 

This dish makes a lovely presentation with the phyllo dough wrapped all around the ingredients which are similar to a mushroom squash pot pie. Serve with a lovely salad and side vegetable of choice and French bread plus apple cider for a complete meal.

Salt and Pepper to Taste

4 Tablespoons Vegan Melted Butter

¾ Cup Soy Milk

½ Cup Soy Sauce

1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice

8 Slices Vegan Monterey Jack Cheese

Place the portobello mushrooms face up on a roasting pan. In a heated frying pan, add some olive oil and the minced onion and sauté until translucent. Add the soy sauce and lemon juice; simmer until liquid is mostly absorbed. Top each mushroom with ¼ of the onion and soy-lemon sauce. Roast the mushrooms for 20 minutes at 400 degrees and set aside.

 

Place the washed and trimmed asparagus in a bread pan. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, adding salt and pepper to taste. Roast for 40 minutes at 400 degrees.

 

Boil the potatoes and allow to cool to the touch. Mash with a potato masher or cut up and add to a food processor. Add the roasted garlic and melted vegan butter, soy milk and salt and pepper to taste, and hand mix or blend. If using a food processor, do not over process. Simply rotate the blade 4 to 5 times until mixed.

 

Top each roasted portobello mushroom with a mound of mashed potatoes. Cover each with two slices of vegan Monterey Jack cheese. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees or until cheese melts. Serve with a few asparagus’ spears on top.

1 Long Eggplant, Thinly Sliced Lengthwise

3 Cloves Garlic, Minced

1 Cup Arborio Risotto Rice

4 Ounces (Vegan) Mozzarella Cheese, Cut into ¼ inch Cubes

½ Cup (Vegan) Parmesan Cheese, Grated

¼ Cup Breadcrumbs

Salt and Pepper to Taste

Olive Oil

1 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar

1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar

Fresh Arugula

 

Brush the sides of the eggplant with olive oil and place in an oven proof dish. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for 40 minutes at 400 degrees until tender.

 

In a heated saucepan, add a good amount of olive oil and sauté the garlic until fragrant. Add the tomatoes, brown sugar and balsamic vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 10 minutes and stir in the torn basil. Do not add more than the required amount of tomatoes as the torta will not be firm enough to form a loaf.

 

Place the rice in a pan of boiling water and simmer for 10 minutes until partially cooked. Drain and add the rice to the tomato sauce and mix well. Stir in the cheeses.

 

Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of bread crumbs in the bottom of an oiled 9 x 5 x 3 loaf pan. Spoon half of the rice mixture to the pan. Top the rice with the roasted eggplant and then add the remaining rice to the top. Sprinkle the top with the remaining bread crumbs.

 

Bake at 425 degrees for 30-40 minutes until golden and bubbling around the edges. Let stand for 10 minutes. Run a long sharp knife around the edges and turn upside down upon a platter or serving tray. Slice into 4-6 pieces and serve with the arugula.

Remove from the heat, and when the bubbles subside, stir in the egg or flax seed mixture and parmesan cheese.

 

Oil a 48-ounce ovenproof dish. Spoon 1/3 of the mushroom mixture into the dish. Cover with 1/3 of the roasted potatoes. Add another two layers of mushrooms followed by the potatoes and then top with the eggplant. Cover the entire dish with the béchamel (milk) sauce. Bake for 30-35 minutes until slightly brown on top.

Chestnut Phyllo Torte with Tomato Ginger Coulis

Chestnut Phyllo Torte with Tomato Ginger Coulis

 

4 Cups Spinach Leaves

2 Yellow Onions, Chopped

2 Cups Mushrooms, Chopped

1 Pound Cooked, Peeled Chestnuts, Chopped (Can Substitute Walnuts)

3 Garlic Cloves, Minced

4 Tablespoon Marmalade

5 Sheets Filo Pastry

4 Tablespoons (Vegan) Butter, Melted

2 Teaspoons Coriander

2 Teaspoons Cinnamon

Salt and Pepper to Taste

9 Inch Round Ovenproof Dish

 

Tomato Ginger Sauce:

½ Cup Olive Oil

4 Garlic Cloves, Minced

2 Inches Fresh Ginger, Peeled and Chopped

2 Pounds Canned Chopped Tomatoes

1 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar

1 Tablespoon Dark Brown Sugar

½ Cup Apple Cider Vinegar

1/3 Cup Water

Salt and Cayenne Pepper

 

Steam the spinach in a separate pan until wilted and set aside. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant. Add the onions, mushrooms, coriander, cinnamon, salt and pepper and cook until soft. Add the chestnuts (or walnuts) and cook for a few minutes before adding the spinach and marmalade.

 

Take one sheet of phyllo dough at a time and place inside a round oiled pan and brush with butter. Layer each phyllo sheet to the right and brush with butter. Spoon in the mixture and fold the phyllo over the top. Top with remaining butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.

 

To prepare the coulis, heat the olive oil in a saucepan adding the garlic and ginger, and sauté until fragrant. Add the tomatoes, vinegar, sugar, apple cider vinegar and water; simmer gently for 20-30 minutes, stirring frequently. Add salt and cayenne pepper to taste. You can pour the coulis through a sieve for a smoother texture. Serve each piece of torte with some coulis drizzled over the top.

 

This recipe is quite fulfilling due to the chestnuts, which have an attribute similar to beans that creates a feeling of grounding unto Mother Earth. Enjoy with a lovely soup and salad, French bread and cider for a complete meal.
