Tofu Vegetable Pot Pie

This morning I took a block of tofu out of the freezer to thaw, and pressed it for a couple of hours to remove a lot of the moisture. I also added hot water to raw cashew nuts and let them soak for a few hours.

Carrots, potatoes, peas, cauliflower, onion and garlic were steamed until soft.

I made a rue with coconut oil and all purpose flour and let it cook for a few a couple of minutes before adding hot water from the vegetable steamer. I then added in the steamed vegetables and chopped tofu.

I blended the soaked cashews with a little water to a smooth slurry and added it into the pot of vegetables.

The crust was made with equal parts olive oil and ice cold water blended together, whole wheat pastry flour and salt.

I pressed the dough into the bottom and sides of the ramekins and rolled it for the top.

  2. Yet another intriguing dish, as always! I’m constantly baffled by how creative each and every one of your recipes are. I can only imagine that you must constantly be dreaming up new dishes in the back of your mind throughout the day. The variety is impressive. I strive to be such a creative cook one day hehe 😛
