Vegan Comfort Food that evokes old timey recipe! This is a fun Sunday dinner that evokes grandma's chops, mashed potatoes, and gravy! You must do steps one and two before cooking the recipe to have everything prepared for Sunday (one day make gluten ball and soak, next day marinate, next day cook).

Gluten Chops with Mashed Potatoes and Miso Gravy.

 

Ingredient List:
Gluten:
Whole wheat flour (This recipe uses a lot of flour, as when you are done you will have "chops" that are 1/3 the size of the dough ball you originally made. If you are feeding a large family, use a 5# bag)

Water

 

Marinade:
Vegetable Broth 

Tamari or Bragg's Liquid Aminos

Liquid Smoke

Cumin

 

Mashed potatoes:

Potatoes

Vegan Fat of choice (margarine, oil)

Garlic
Milk of choice (soy, rice, almond)

 

Gravy:

Onions

Mushrooms (optional)

Veggie Broth

Miso Paste

 

1. Make gluten: Use fresh-as-possible whole wheat flour. Make into a non-sticky dough ball (just water and flour) and immerse in water (enough to cover it) overnight. The next day, rinse out starch and bran (you can place a cheesecloth down in the sink as you rinse if you wish to keep the bran for other purposes) until you are left with a rubbery blob of gluten (it will be about 1/3 of the ball's original size).

2. Make marinade and marinate chops: Cover with veggie broth, mixed with tamari or Bragg's Liquid Aminos, liquid smoke, and some cumin to taste. Marinate overnight.

 

3. Sunday Dinner time: 

a. Boil potatoes. Mash them with your favorite fat (vegan margarine, olive oil) and milk (rice, soy, etc). I like to add garlic to mine.

b. Pan fry gluten into chop-sized pieces in oil of choice. Gluten chops will brown slightly. Remove from pan and keep warm while you prepare gravy.

 

c. Prepare gravy. Saute onions and mushrooms. Add veggie broth and simmer with miso paste to taste. Thicken with corn starch solution (1 T cornstarch to 1 c water). Pour gravy over potatoes and chops and serve.

 

It sounds more complicated than it is. While the days out prep requires advance planning, the total cook time is one hour (because potatoes take so long to cook) but hands on-time is like 30 minutes tops. It is delicious! We serve this with a green veggie.

I use this recipe for a quickly prepped dinner.  It's gluten free.

Crusted Chicken with sauce

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts

1 C corn flakes, crushed

2 T oil

1 egg, beaten

italian herb blend and freshly chopped garlic to taste; paprika if desired

1 t salt

1 C pasta sauce

2/3 C shredded cheese...Parmesan works well

 

Combine the salt, garlic, herbs, and crushed corn flakes.  I crush the corn flakes with a rolling pin.  Prepare the chicken by rinsing, drying and then cut each breast in half.  Preheat oven to 350degrees.  Dip each piece of chicken in the egg, then in the corn flake mixture.  In a cast iron or non-stick skillet over medium heat, fry each coated chicken piece until lightly brown; chicken will finish cooking in the oven.  Transfer chicken into oven-safe baking dish, or use the cast-iron pan, and top with the sauce and cheese.  Place in preheated oven for 25 minutes or until cooked thoroughly.  Serve with salad, steamed vegetables, and quinoa or polenta....or anything that sounds yummy!

TEMPEH SLOPPY JOES---Vegan, gluten free

 

  • 8 oz Regular Tempeh, crumbled (not all varieties are gluten free but a lot are)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 Tsp Chili powder
  • 1 Tsp cumin
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce (can also use tamari or coconut aminos)
  • 1 Tbsp Molasses
  • 2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/2 Jar strained tomatoes (about 1 ½ cups)
  • 1 ½ cups grated carrot
  • Salt and pepper
  • ¼ C. Oil
  • Buns or crusty bread (or gluten free bread)

Heat oil in a heavy sauté pan on medium high heat. Add tempeh and cook until it’s crisp and golden. Add onions and bell peppers and sauté until soft and translucent. Cook garlic until fragrant and add spices. Sauté for 2 minutes or so. Add tomatoes and other spices and liquids, simmer for 20-30 minutes or until thick. Season with salt and pepper. Serve on toasted buns.You want it to lose most of it’s liquid and remember it will be even thicker once it has cooled some.

Grilled Sesame Zucchini, vegan

 

4 medium zucchini, quartered lengthwise

 

3 Tbsp sesame oil

1 Tbsp olive oil

2 Tbsp Bragg's liquid aminos or soy sauce

a splash of rice vinegar

 

Prepare marinade in a 9x13 pan.

Add quartered zucchini.  

Halfway through marinating time, flip zucchini to their other sides.

(Best if left to marinate all day, but I've done as little as a 1/2 hour.)

Grill for about 8 minutes on a hot grill, flipping occasionally.  (Not you, the zucchini.)

 

Good alongside burgers instead of fries.

Easy DF Fudgsicles

serves 4

 

1 can heavy coconut milk

~1/4 cup chocolate syrup of your choice

 

Mix.

Pour in molds.

Wait impatiently while they freeze.

Delicious!  The coconut milk is so fatty that you don't get an icecube on a stick, but rather a flakey creamy bit of chocolately goodness.
