25 Best Vegan Iron Rich Recipes

January 18 2022 Vegan Richa 

25 Best Vegan Iron Rich RecipesLearn all about iron-rich vegan foods and how to incorporate them into a real-world, everyday meals for optimal absorption in this round-up of delicious iron-rich recipes.  Iron deficiency is quite a common nutrient deficiency in the world and affects vegans and omnivores alike. The good news is that you can get all the iron your body needs from Plants. When we think about iron, our minds wander to red meat etc. But there are lots of plant-based foods containing good amounts of this essential mineral as well. Iron Absorption Now, one thing is choosing iron-rich foods. The other thing is making sure your body can absorb that iron.  You can enhance your body’s absorption of iron by drinking citrus juice or eating or adding other foods rich in vitamin C at the same time that you eat high-iron foods. Another little trick: Use a cast-iron skillet. Cooking in a cast iron skillet can add significant amounts of iron to your food and into your body. It’s often really surprising foods that contain a lot of iron. Like Blackstrap molasses 1 tablespoon of blackstrap molasses has 3.6 mg. You can add molasses to vegan baked beans, any baked oatmeal recipe, or add some to salad dressings. Mix and match lentils and beans or beans and spinach to make an iron packed meal. If your readings are consistently low even after eating thoughtfully, consult your doctor about it. People can have absorption issues and will need supplementation even with an iron-rich diet. For high protein options, check this collection! Without further ado, here are some hearty vegan meals to try that combine iron-rich foods with ingredients that help to absorb it well. Best Vegan Recipes using Iron rich foods Lentils 1 cup of lentils has 6.6 mg iron. Paired with other iron sources such as spinach, tomatoes and that bit of lemon for the vitamin c that helps iron absorption and you are all set. Lentils are so easy to incorporate into your everyday like.

Hoppin John for the New Year

December 30 2021 Robin Robertson's Global Vegan Kitchen 

Hoppin John for the New Year I’ve been taking a break from my blog (partially due to a break in my wrist!) but I couldn’t let the year go by without posting my recipe for Hoppin’ John. A tradition in the South that is said to bring good luck in the coming year, I’ve been making this comforting dish of black-eyed peas with rice (and collards) ever since we moved to Charleston SC in the 1980s. Its been a New Years Day tradition ever since. Most people serve the collards on the side, but I prefer to add them directly into the rice and black-eyed peas. I sometimes add fire-roasted diced tomatoes, too. Serve topped with vegan sour cream, Tabasco, and sliced jalapenos. A side of cornbread makes a great accompaniment. I like to cook the collards and black-eyed peas a day in advance and then add them to the rice on New Years Day. I hope you enjoy my recipe for Hoppin John and I wish you all the best in 2022. Happy New Year!   Hoppin John with Collards 1 tablespoon olive oil or 3 tablespoons water 1 sweet yellow onion, chopped 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 cup long-grain brown rice 2 cups vegetable broth or water Salt 3 cups cooked or 2 (16-ounce) cans black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed 3 cups chopped cooked fresh or frozen collard greens, well drained 1 (14-ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes, drained (optional) 1 teaspoon Liquid Smoke 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce, plus more to serve 1/­­4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper Vegan sour cream, to serve Sliced pickled jalapenos (optional) Heat the oil or water in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, cover, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the rice and broth or water and bring to a boil. Add salt to taste (the amount of salt needed depends on the saltiness of your broth or if you use water). Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, covered, until the rice is tender, about 30 minutes. About 10 minutes before the rice is tender, stir in the cooked black-eyed peas, the cooked chopped collards, tomatoes (if using), Liquid Smoke, Tabasco, and black pepper. Add more salt, if needed. To serve, spoon into bowls and accompany with vegan sour cream, jalapenos (if using) and Tabasco at the table.   Two of my favorites variations are Hoppin John made in a slow cooker with a cornbread topping: and Collard Rolls stuffed with Hoppin John, served with Tabasco-Sour Cream)...   The post Hoppin’ John for the New Year appeared first on Robin Robertson.

Vegan Spinach &  Mozzarella Cheese MeltsMove over grilled cheese, my Vegan Spinach Cheese Melts are here to curb even the most serious cravings for a cheesy, melty and comforting lunch sandwich! The addition of tomatoes and sauteed mushrooms take these vegan cheese sandwiches to the next level. Vegan Spinach & Mozzarella Cheese Melts are here to curb all your comfort food cravings. Trust me, this is the vegan sandwich to end all your comfort food cravings. Creamy, filling, salty, crispy, buttery and so easy to whip up on any given weekday. I mean, the combination of melty vegan mozzarella cheese and sauteed spinach alone would be pretty amazing.  But I didn’t stop there. Natural plant-based umami bombs mushrooms and tomatoes are added to take these vegan cheese sandwiches to the next level of deliciousness! Just in case you’ve been wondering.  Yes, vegan cheese melts and grilled cheeses are a thing! How so? Homemade vegan mozzarella cream. You could also call it vegan cheese spread! That’s right. No need to buy expensive vegan slices at the store. We make our own spreadable mozzarella from simple ingredients. Mostly blended soaked cashew nuts, some garlic and miso for umami, and a touch of flour for getting that gorgeous thick yet silky texture upon heating the sauce.see recipe notes for gf and no nut options. What’s the difference between a melt and a grilled cheese anyway, you might ask. Well, grilled cheese is bread, some spread, and cheese. A melt is anything that has another item added to it. If you add things like spinach, mushrooms, and tomatoes, it’s a melt. If you add avocados, it’s a melt. You get the idea. If you add anything other than bread, vegan cheese, and some kind of flavor-enhancing spread, a vegan grilled cheese turns into a melt.

Sheet Pan Ratatouille with Polenta

March 17 2021 Vegan Richa 

Sheet Pan Ratatouille with PolentaThis bright and colorful Baked Sheet Pan Ratatouille is a modern twist on the classic French chunky summer vegetable stew, rich with olive oil and fragrant with plenty of herbs. Serve over creamy polenta for the perfect summer dinner. Ratatouille – I LOVE this classic French stew made from eggplant, zucchini, peppers and tomatoes and summer is the prime time to make this easy vegan dinner with local produce. This sheet pan Ratatouille is indeed the perfect recipe to serve all those beautiful farmers’ market veggies that are popping up during the warm months! As we know, roasting veggies really boosts their flavor and brings out their natural sweetness so an oven baked ratatouille is seriously the best way to showcase summer vegetables! Its so easy, its healthy and it’s versatile. You can make a big batch of Baked Ratatouille on a Sunday, then serve it up in different ways during the workweek! I love serving my baked veggies over creamy polenta, but I also really like this served with pasta, mashed potatoes, and even over toast! Whether made on a sheet pan or a casserole dish, baked Ratatouille is so simple yet flavorful with those dried herbs – trust me, you wont tire of it. This simple casserole version takes only 15 minutes of prep work before the pan goes into the oven to roast. The only hands-on part of this recipe is chopping the eggplant, summer squash, zucchini, bell pepper, tomatoes, and onion.

Restaurants usually add the sauce to the dish so that you can order it as a main.You all have been asking me for an Indian restaurant version and this is your basic restaurant style Aloo Gobi with a bit of sauce. You can double up the sauce for saucier and add some cashew cream in the end for creamier if you wish. What is Aloo Gobi? Aloo gobi (potatoes & cauliflower) is a popular North Indian veggie dish. It’s basically potatoes and cauliflower cooked with onions, tomatoes and a blend of spices. It can be made in several ways. Dry or with sauce/­­gravy.  You can make it with only onions or only tomatoes or use no onion or tomato at all, depending on what ingredients you have on hand. This aloo gobi recipe I am sharing today is one of my favorite versions. It has onions, tomatoes, ginger, garlic, and all the spices and tastes just like what you get in an Indian restaurant. While restaurants typically fry the veggies and then toss them in gravy,  this version is quite a bit healthier as we bake the veggies instead.

North Indian-Inspired Butter Chickpeas

November 18 2021 My New Roots 

North Indian-Inspired Butter Chickpeas Most lovers of North Indian cuisine widely available in North America are familiar with Butter Chicken – the iconic dish that has captured the hearts and bellies of people the world over. In fact butter chicken is likely the most popular and recognizable Indian dish in our neck of the woods, and without a doubt my own personal gateway to the unique flavours of Indian cuisine. This dish was the inspiration for these North Indian-Inspired Butter Chickpeas! When I was 13 or 14, my best friends mother, Annie (who Ive mentioned before in my sushi post – a woman who truly opened my eyes to the world of food beyond hot dogs and hamburgers!), took the three of us to The Host, a famous, Toronto institution that has been running successfully for 24 years. I can still remember the feeling of walking into the space, the air absolutely swollen with mouthwatering scents I had never experienced before. We sat down at the table, covered in a crisp white tablecloth, and a basket of seed-flecked, paper-thin crackers was dropped off along with the menus. Papadam Annie said. I took one bite and the entire thing shattered into my hands, which made us all laugh, and the taste was delicious, even if completely unfamiliar. I had just tried my first cumin seed! This primed my palette for what was to come, and Annie confidently ordered for the table. There were things I recognized, like rice, and flatbread (naan), but most of the dishes were alluringly mysterious, arriving in copper bowls, with colourful sauces and chutneys. Once she explained to put some rice on my plate as a bed for the curries, she handed me a bowl whose scent made my mouth water instantly. Butter chicken she told me. Well, I knew both of those ingredients very well, but not looking like this! Is it spicy? I asked. Not spicy hot, she replied. There are plenty of spices in there, but Id describe it flavourful. I had trusted this woman to guide me through Japanese, Korean, Ethiopian, Greek, Macedonian, and Moroccan restaurant experiences so far, so I took a heaping spoonful of the butter chicken and spread it over the rice.  It was love at first bite. The combinations of flavours, commingling in a sauce that was beguilingly rich and creamy, with huge chunks of perfectly tender chicken throughout was absolutely divine. It was tomato-y, but not overpoweringly so, and deeply aromatic with spices that I had certainly never tasted before. I savoured every bite of that butter chicken, along with chana masala, palak paneer, aloo gobi, and dal makhni. We ate naan, and samosa, and pakora and bhaji. It was a veritable feast that began my love affair with Indian food. Little did I know every corner of the continent, every family, every household brings a diversity and a uniqueness to what we generally label Indian food -- theres so much to explore!     Butter chicken was invented in the 1950s, by a man named Kundan Lal Gurjal, who operated a restaurant called Moti Mahal in Delhi, the capital territory of India. Kundan had settled here in this Northern region of the country and started his business after escaping from political upheaval in another region of India. Moti Mahal was a success, and it served several delicious tandoori dishes, that came from their tandoor oven – a circular clay oven central to Punjabi cuisine.  As the story goes, Kundan didnt want his leftover tandoori chicken to go to waste, but he also didnt want it to dry out, so he mixed leftover marinade juices with tomato and butter, added the chicken to it, and let it all stew – butter chicken was born! Although necessity was the mother of this invention, he likely had no idea that he had created an internationally-loved delicacy that would stand the test of time.  I started eating a vegetarian diet when I was 16, and butter chicken was one of the foods I missed the most. Ive cooked a lot of Indian-inspired food at home over the years, but Id never taken a crack at a plant-based butter chicken until my mom served me a version with chickpeas...brilliant! It was a serious why-didnt-I-think-of-that moment.  One of the things that makes butter chicken so good, is that the chicken is marinated in yogurt and spices before cooking. This step accomplishes two things: one, it tenderizes the meat, and second, it seasons it. Because I was aiming for a weeknight dinner, I decided to skip this step with the chickpeas and just make sure that they were properly cooked and well seasoned before adding to the sauce. I also smashed about half of the legumes. This helped to increase their surface area, break up their tough skins, and allow the flavourful sauce to penetrate to the inner, absorbent centers. I also appreciated having the texture variation in the dish, making it more similar to the OG version. Chickpea Party Tricks We all know that chickpeas are fiber all-stars, providing 50% of your RDI in just one cup, (whoa!) but they have another party trick up their sleeve that I bet you didnt know about. Two-thirds of the fiber in chickpeas is insoluble, meaning that it doesnt break down during digestion, but instead moves through our digestive tract unchanged until it hits the large intestine. The fun starts here, where friendly bacteria (think probiotics!) go to town on said insoluble fiber and actually break it down to create short-chain fatty acids, including acetic acid, propionic acid, and butyric acid. These short-chain fatty acids can then be absorbed by the cells that line the wall of our large intestine and used for energy! How rad is that?! Butyric acid is in fact the preferred source of energy for the cells lining our colon, and with this bonus fuel comes greater potential for optimally active and healthy cells. This translates into a reduced risk of colon problems including colon cancer. So friends, invite chickpeas to your next dinner party - theyll feed you and your colon cells. Can your pot roast do that? Now lets get cooking! For this dish I highly recommend cooking your own chickpeas from dried (I mean, have I ever NOT recommended that?! haha). For one, if you make the entire batch, youre looking at around 4 cans of chickpeas, which is a lot  of waste produced. Second, if you cook the legumes yourself, you can control the amount of salt that you use, as high sodium levels are a concern for some people. Third, they taste way better. Trust me. And fourth, it costs a lot less – I likely dont have to elaborate on that for you If youre not sure how to cook beans from scratch, the full instructions are in this post, and a full video tutorial is up on my membership site, My New Roots Grow. If youre especially interested in this dish, Id love to invite you to the live, online cooking demo on Saturday, December 18th. Part of the Winter Radiance Retreat alongside Mikkala Marilyn Kissi, this recorded, one-day virtual retreat has so many wonderful seasonal goodies planned for you. Check it out and sign up here!  The ingredient list for this recipe may look long, but half of them are spices, and the remaining ones are primarily pantry staples, making this the perfect thing to cook up when you dont have a ton of fresh produce around (Im looking at you, late fall, winter, and early spring!). Cilantro is optional, but such a delicious addition if it’s available to you. And I like to serve the dish with rice or naan, or both. A simple kachumber salad, made with chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, and lemon juice is a great accompaniment to butter chickpeas when those ingredients are in season. Pro tip: measure out two or more portions in separate containers of the spice mix when youre making it the first time so the next time all you have to do is grab the blend instead of all your individual spice jars!   And what about the butter?! Well, there isnt any classic dairy butter here (although there is no shame in adding it!), instead I used cashew butter to achieve that crave-able creaminess. Some recipes for butter chicken call for whole cashews, which may in fact be easier for some of you to find than cashew butter. If that is the case, sub the cashew butter with whole, raw cashews that have been soaked for 4-8 hours, and add them to the pot with the tomatoes and coconut milk in step 3. If you’d like to know more about soaking and activating nuts, check out my article here.

Print North Indian-Inspired Butter Chickpeas  Author Sarah Britton Ingredients2 Tbsp. coconut oil preferably expeller-pressed or ghee 1 Tbsp. ground cumin 1 Tbsp. ground coriander 2 tsp. ground turmeric 2 tsp. ground ginger 1 Tbsp. garam masala 1 tsp. smoked paprika 1 tsp. ground cinnamon 1/­­2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper pinch cayenne to taste 1 large yellow onion diced 2 tsp. fine sea salt 5 cloves garlic minced 28 oz. /­­ 796ml whole or diced tomatoes 1 large can 3 Tbsp. tomato paste 1 cup /­­ 250ml full-fat coconut milk 1/­­4 cup /­­ 60ml cashew butter 2 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice 6 cups /­­ 900g cooked chickpeas from 2 cups dried /­­ approx. 4 cans cilantro for garnish if desired rice and /­­ or naan for serving if desired InstructionsIn a large stockpot over medium heat, melt the coconut oil. Add the cumin, coriander, turmeric, ginger, garam masala, smoked paprika, cinnamon, black pepper, and cayenne. Stir well to mix with the oil, and stir frequently so it doesnt scorch.   Add the onion and salt, stir well to coat, let cook for 5-10 minutes until the onions have softened slightly. Add the garlic, stir well,  and cook for 2-3 more minutes.  Add the canned tomatoes, tomato paste, and coconut milk, stirring well to incorporate. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 5 minutes.  While the sauce is simmering, take about half of the chickpeas and smash them flat with the bottom of a drinking glass. This step is optional, but it changes the shape and texture of the chickpeas (see headnote). Transfer the sauce to a blender, add the cashew butter and lemon juice, then blend on high until completely smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired (if youd like it spicier for example, add more cayenne).  Add all of the chickpeas to the sauce and fold to combine. Bring a very light simmer, and let cook for 5 minutes, up to an hour, making sure to stir every so often so the bottom doesnt scorch.  Serve the butter chickpeas over rice with lots of fresh cilantro, and naan if desired. Say thank you and enjoy! NotesServes 8-10 I hope you love this recipe as much as I do, and find the same satisfying coziness with each bite you enjoy. As we head into the darker, colder months of the year, I know Ill be turning to these butter chickpeas to keep me warm and grounded, while picturing us at our stoves, connected in spirit over steaming pots and nourishing bowls.

Mexican Egg Casserole

Mexican Egg CasseroleThis Vegan Mexican Egg Casserole gets a delicious Mexican flair with layers of roasted potatoes, onion and bell peppers, spinach, tomatoes, vegan cheese, and fluffy tofu eggs seasoned with taco spice.  Your whole family will gobble this easy brunch recipe up! Nut-free + gluten-free option. I love me a good breakfast casserole and today we are adding a Mexican twist to it! This easy Vegan Mexican Casserole is my new favorite weekend brunch recipe. I guess you could call it Mexican Egg Casserole or Mexican Egg Bake. Essentially, it is vegan tofu eggs mixed with some pre-baked veggies, some bread, and some vegan cheese shreds then all baked in a casserole dish. It is almost like a vegan egg souffle dish packed with vegetables. You can also add in some cooked beans if you like to make it even more hearty. Now let’s talk about the seasonings because that is where we get the Mexican flavors in. Taco seasoning and chipotle chili powder are your best friends for whenever you want to add a pinch of fiesta to any dish. I make my own taco spice using this taco seasoning recipe but storebought is fine as well.  Making your own is quick and easy and takes mere minutes using common spices you probably already have, so it’s worth checking out the recipe. When made at home, you can also adjust the flavor and heat to preference. Back to the vegan Mexican casserole – we use a mix of pre-roasted veggies and veggies as add ons. Pre-roasting the potatoes, onion and bell peppers before adding to vegan tofu “egg” mixture is necessary to allow for them to cook. And we all love that aroma of roasted bell peppers and charred onions, don’t we? It makes this vegan egg casserole taste a bit like fajitas.

Parathas can be made plain or with a variety of different fillings. A flavorful potato filling is by far the most popular. Aloo Parathas are very popular in North India, at any time of the day. In Punjab, Aloo Parathas are a staple for breakfast. Traditionally, Aloo Parathas are served with homemade butter and buttermilk known as chaas. I'm sure you are thinking that making these parathas is very time consuming. With our busy schedules and hectic mornings, how is possible to prepare these! Of course, parathas taste best when fresh off a hot skillet! An easy solution to this problem is to simply prepare part of the recipe in advance until you are ready to roll the parathas. You can prepare the dough and filling in advance and have the potato-mix filled balls ready to just start rolling. The prepared dough can be refrigerated for up to two days. Enjoy! This Recipe will make 4 parathas.

Knead dough well on a lightly greased surface to make the dough soft, smooth, and pliable. Set the dough aside and cover. Let the dough rest at least ten minutes. FillingIn a bowl take mash potatoes add green chilies, cilantro, cumin seeds, garam masala, mango powder, and salt, mix it well. Making parathaDivide the dough into 4 equal parts and roll them into balls. Then divide the potato filling into 4 parts and shape into balls. Potato balls should be about 1 1/­­2 times larger than the dough balls. Roll dough ball into a 3 circle. Place a filling ball in the center. Pull the edges of the dough to wrap it around the potato filling. Repeat to make all six balls. Let the filled balls settle three to four minutes. Meanwhile heat heavy skillet on medium high heat until moderately hot. To test, sprinkle water on the skillet. If the water sizzles right away, the skillet is ready. Press the filled ball lightly on dry whole wheat flour from both sides. Using a rolling pin, roll the balls lightly to make six-inch circles, keeping the sealed side of the balls on top. If the dough sticks to the rolling pin or rolling surface, lightly dust the parathas with dry flour. Oil the skillet and place the paratha on the skillet. When the paratha starts to change color and begins to puff up, flip it over. You will notice some olden-brown spots. After a few seconds, drizzle one teaspoon of oil over the paratha, and spread with spatula. Flip the paratha again and lightly press the puffed areas with a spatula. Flip again and press with a spatula making sure the paratha is golden-brown on both sides. Repeat for the remaining parathas. Parathas are best served hot and crispy. They will be soft if not served hot. If you are not going to serve them right away, cool them on a wire rack to keep them from getting soggy. Parathas can be kept unrefrigerated for up to two days wrapped in aluminum foil or in a covered container. For later use, parathas can be refrigerated three to four days or frozen for up to a month. Re-heat using a skillet or oven. NotesVariations Substitute chopped cilantro with 1/­­4 cup finely chopped mint leaves, or experiment with your favorite herb. Be sure to pat the herbs dry before adding to the mixture. Serving Suggestions - Parathas can be served with Tomato Chutney, Plain Yogurt, mattar Paneer, Green Chili pickle. - Serve it like a Mexican quesadilla by topping it with cheese and sliced tomatoes, then folding it in half.

Eggplant-Potato Moussaka

February 5 2021 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Eggplant-Potato Moussaka Feeds around 8, takes about an hour and a half Photo By Kate Lewis This is a Terry recipe from Veganomicon! Can you even tell when a recipe is mine or Terrys? Hint: Terry is less lazy than me. This recipe is actually on the site but we updated it in the last version of the book to use cashew cream. Did you even know that there’s an updated Veganomicon? It’s like really nice with new recipes, old faves, photos by Kate Lewis and stuff. Buy it and update your library! Anyway, we are in for a deep freeze this weekend so I thought Id post a recipe that was a little more involved. It is so satisfying and worth it, and working your oven will keep you nice and warm. Our idyllically vegan version of this traditional Greek casserole tastes like it was made in a restaurant. A fabulous vegan ancient Greek restaurant nestled in a majestic olive grove at the base of Mount Olympus thats been baking vegan moussaka since the goddess Aphrodite first stepped out into the world in of a cab made of sea foam. This mythical restaurant also delivers via pink flying horses paid a fair and living wage to anyone who reads this recipe aloud three times and clicks their golden winged sandals.  If you have no idea what were talking about or what moussaka could be, we still think youll warm up to this gorgeous dish of roasted eggplant, potatoes, and zucchini layered with a subtle cinnamon-spiked tomato sauce blanketed with a creamy cashew and pine nut silken tofu custard (a recipe tester favorite!). This refresh of the original recipe has more tomato sauce and more pine nut cream for a bigger, thicker, even more substantial dish perfect for potlucks or just eating  at home all week long. This reheats beautifully and tastes even better the next day. Serve with slices of crusty peasant bread and a basic salad of sliced ripe tomatoes and cucumbers dressed with lemon and olive oil. Recipe Notes ~Very fresh zucchini may be watery after roasting. If so, when cool enough to handle, gently squeeze the slices by the handful to remove any excess water. See our tips for roasting summer squash (page 35), for further suggestions. Ingredients Vegetable layer: 1 pound eggplant 1 pound zucchini 1 1/­­2 pounds russet or large baking potatoes (large, long potatoes work perfectly in this recipe) 3 tablespoons olive oil plus more for brushing Salt For the Sauce: 2 tablespoons olive oil 1/­­2 cup finely chopped shallots 3 cloves garlic, minced 3 (15 ounce) cans diced fire roasted tomatoes 2 teaspoons dried oregano 1/­­2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 2 bay leaves 1 1/­­2 teaspoons salt For the Cashew Cream: 1/­­2 cup unroasted cashews, soaked for an hour or so, then drained 2 tablespoons olive oil 12 ounces soft silken tofu 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 1 teaspoon arrowroot powder 2 cloves garlic, chopped 1 teaspoon dried oregano 1/­­4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1 teaspoon salt To assemble: 1/­­2 cup fine dry breadcrumbs 1/­­4 cup pine nuts Olive oil, nutmeg, oregano for dusting top of casserole Directions Prepare the vegetables: Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line three large baking sheets with parchment paper, and generously oil the sheets with olive oil. Wash the eggplant and zucchini, and trim the stems. Scrub and peel the potatoes. Slice the eggplant, zucchini, and potatoes lengthwise into approximately 1/­­4-inch-thick slices. Arrange vegetable slices on a separate baking sheets in a single layer: do not overlap slices. Brush slices with olive oil and sprinkle vegetables with little bit of sea salt. Roast the pans of zucchini and eggplant for 15 minutes, or until tender. The potatoes may take longer, about 20 to 22 minutes, until slices can be easily pierced with a fork. Remove from oven and continue make the sauces. While the vegetables are cooking, prepare the tomato sauce:  Heat olive oil and minced garlic in a large heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Cook the garlic for about 30 seconds, then add the shallots and cook until soft and translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the wine and simmer to reduce slightly, about 2 minutes. Add the crushed tomatoes, oregano, ground cinnamon, bay leaves, and salt. Partially cover and simmer over medium-low heat for 12 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. The sauce should reduce slightly. Turn off the heat and remove the bay leaf. Make the cashew cream:  In a food processor, blend the cashews and olive oil, scraping the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula, until a creamy paste forms. Add the remaining cream topping ingredients. Blend until completely creamy and smooth. Assemble the moussaka, opa! Grease a 9 x 13-inch casserole with olive oil and preheat the oven again to 400°F. Spread 1/­­4 cup of sauce on the pan, then add successive layers in order of eggplant, potatoes, sauce, and half the bread crumbs. Spread all the zucchini on top of this. Top with a final layer each of eggplant, potatoes, sauce, and bread crumbs. Use a rubber spatula to evenly spread the tofu nut cream over the entire top layer. Decorate top by scattering with pine nuts and healthy drizzles of olive oil. Dust the top generously with dried oregano and a tiny pinch of nutmeg.  Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes, uncover and bake another 15, then broil top for 2-4 minutes until browned spots appear (for that authentic Greek homemade casserole touch). For easier slicing, cool 10 minutes to allow the topping to firm up.
