Today I made a Meatless Monday meal for the kiddies & hubby. Well everyday is Meatless Monday here, but I found a recipe & it was from their site, so I had to try it. Altho bear with me, I'm a mover & a shaker, I went my own way with the ingredients. First off, we don't eat eggs here. Haven't had a one in well over 6 years. Nor do we miss them. Same goes with cheese. Altho hubby just got off the eggs. However, he's still (UGH) back & forth on the cheese & has found Daiya might be the answer, but not the shredded Daiya, the chunky blocks they just came out with.

Anyhoo, first I made a flax seed-brown rice flour crust. I used a small amount (2 TBS) of vegan butter & then I used some warmed up coconut oil and some coconut milk to make the dough. Mix it till it's doughy & press into the pan. DONE. Onto step 2.
Step two: Chop up all your veggies & spice them if you'd like. I used a tiny bit of celtic sea salt here & also some raw organic garlic. Yes I cheated I used the kind that comes in a jar pre-chopped. Very handy stuff!
Step 3 of making the vegan veggy pie: make the tofu cheese from non-GMO Organic tofu. I used raw garlic, celtic sea salt, pepper, paprika, unsweetened coconut milk, water to blend it in the blender with & a little celery salt. Then bake in a 350*F oven for 20-30 minutes, if that-keep an eye on it after 15 minutes or so of cooking. When the tofu is dry on the top it's done.
