hidetheveggiesCreamy Pea Peanut Noodles Vegan

I forgot to take a picture!! Next time
2 cups homemade vegetable broth (or boxed)
1 pound of whole wheat spaghetti
1 half of large sweet onion
3/4 cup frozen peas
3/4 cup nutritional yeast flakes
1/2 cup salted or unsalted peanuts
3 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp oil of your choice
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Get your noodles cooking and then start the sauce.  I used regular wheat spaghetti for this meal and homemade vegetable broth.
1. Cut up onions in bite size pieces
2. Add oil to sauce pan, heat and add onions
3. Add garlic powder and black pepper, stir and cook onions until translucent
4. Add frozen peas and stir/cook til thawed
5. Add peanuts to food processor and process until fine powder like substance
6. Add onions and peas, vegetable broth to food processor, and process until smooth
6a. If you have a Vitamix, add the mixture to it and blend until super creamy
7. Pour back into the saucepan, add soy sauce and nutritional yeast flakes.  Stir.  If consistency is too thick add a little vegetable broth until you like the creamy consistency.
8. Noodles should be ready. Plate noodles and pour some creamy pea peanut sauce over top.
9. Salt and pepper to taste
If you want to make it a sort of Thai meal, add Red Pepper Flakes to step 6 and blend in/add til you have your spicy flavor that you like.

Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms

Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms 
Ingredients:
 
Double/triple ingredients for large batches 
 
8 large mushrooms 
1/2 cup Vegetable broth
1/2 cup garlic powder
2 cups Dry Stuffing mix, I used Pepperidge Farm Herb

1 TBSP of Olive Oil

1 small onion
3 small celery stalks
1/2 cup fried onions
1 tsp garlic powder
Pepper to taste 
1/4 cup Daiya Mozzarella Shreds 
 
1. Pull off the stems of mushrooms (Wash, Save, Set aside) and use a spoon to scoop out as much as you can of each to make a little mushroom bowl
2. Rinse Mushrooms and pat dry with paper towels.  These need to be pretty dry so when you bake them, the moisture doesn’t ooze out and make a slimy mushroom
3.  Cut onions, celery, and mushroom stems in tiny pieces.  Add onions and celery to fry pan with Olive Oil
4. Once the onions and celery are soft, add the mushroom stems that you cut up, then add garlic powder and pepper
5. Measure out two cups of dry stuffing mix and dump in fry pan, add 1/2 to 3/4 cups of Vegetable broth and mix well until you get a gummy stuffing
6.  Add the fried onions to the mixture and mix well
7. Pre heat oven to 375 and then use your stuffing mixture to stuff your mushrooms.
8. Add some Daiya Mozzarella Shreds on top of each one. A little goes a long way with these Shreds
9. Bake Mushrooms for 20 minutes or until the mushrooms look “dry” and not slimy
This serves 2 people.  If you’re using for a party, I would make 4 batches of these.  Non vegans like this too.  Also if you are serving at a party with dairy eaters, go ahead and split these up, put half Daiya Shreds on some and half regular dairy mozzarella on the others.
