vegan, one-dish meal
1 frozen pie crust
1 ½- 2 cups firm tofu (drained and hand crumbled)
½ cup veg cheese of choice, shredded
½ cup onion, chopped
1 potato, shredded
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ cup broccoli, chopped
1 jalapeno (or mild pepper of choice), sliced
1 small tomato, sliced
1-2 Tbsp olive oil
salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 400º F. In a pan over medium-high heat, add olive oil. Cook shredded potato in a thin layer on the pan until golden brown on each side. Sprinkle with salt & pepper. Layer cooked hash browns at the bottom of the pie crust. Sprinkle some of the cheese on top.
While pan is still hot, sauté onions, garlic, & peppers. Approx 5 minutes.
In a small bowl mix sautéed veggies, most of the cheese, broccoli, crumbled tofu, salt & pepper. Mix well. Scrape mixture into pie crust. Smooth out top with back of a spoon. Sprinkle more cheese. Add a layer of tomato slices on top.
Bake for about 45 minutes, checking every 15 to make sure crust isn't burning.
Remove from heat and let set 5-10 minutes before cutting.
