From: LRLady@aol.com (Ruth Hoffman, Lake Zurich, IL, LRLady@aol.com) I
bought a vegan cookbook at a used-book store not long ago, and we've
been enjoying some yummy recipes from it. It's a British book,
called The Vegan Gourmet by Heather Lamont. Not fatfree, but usually
low fat and mostly easy to modify. Here's my version of a delicious
dish I adapted from this book recently. Aussies will recognize a
familiar ingredient--Vegemite, also known as yeast extract. For those
who don't know what it is, it's *definitely* an acquired taste, and
not one I would go to any trouble to acquire. But our son brought
back a jar of the stuff from Australia, and I figured, what the heck,
we only go around once. (Original called for 1 Tbsp; could probably
be eliminated, but I suspect it added to the richness and complexity
of the flavor without being identifiable.)
Saute onions in broth for 5 minutes. Add carrots, celery, leek, and
garlic and saute for 5 more minutes. Add kidney beans, tomatoes with
their juice, stock, yeast extract, and salt and pepper. Mix well.
Place in casserole dish. Arrange potatoes over the top and sprinkle
with salt and pepper. Spray lightly with cooking spray and cover
casserole. Place in oven (350 deg F, 180 deg C, Mk 4) for 2 hours.
Remove lid for last
30 minutes to brown potatoes.
Serves 4 hungry people, or maybe 6 with a generous side dish. (I
tend to get lazy and do one-dish meals.) Or 2, if you want to save
the leftovers for tomorrow night.
This was scrumptious! I might try adding a layer of portabella
mushrooms in the middle, next time. (Maybe my son will think they are
meat...:-)). But it didn't really need any help of any kind. The
leftovers are good, too!
