  • 1/2 medium head cauliflower roughly chopped
  • 16 oz mushrooms divided in two and cleaned
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small /medium onion minced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons soy or tamari sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup red wine room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups diced carrots
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • 1 1/2 cups veggie broth
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 3 Yukon potatoes thinly sliced
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper


  • Place the chopped florets of the cauliflower in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until broken into rice size pieces. Set aside.
  • Thinly slice half of the mushrooms, about 8 oz. The other 8 oz, quarter and ad to the food processor. Pulse until they are rice size pieces. Set aside.
  • In a large oven-safe pot add the olive oil, onion, and garlic until fragrant.
  • Add the cauliflower and the rice size mushrooms and sauté for 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Move this mixture to the side and add the tomato paste and let it brown for about three minutes.
  • Mix the flour and the red wine until all clumps are dissolved, add to the pot and mix well with the rest of the veggies.
  • Add the carrots, peas, sliced mushrooms, salt, thyme, soy sauce and vegetable broth.
  • Simmer over low heat until most of the liquid is evaporated and the vegetable mixture has thickened.
  • Layer on top of the vegetables the sliced potatoes and cover until they are soft. Then, uncover and drizzle olive oil over the potatoes, add a pinch of salt and pepper, a little pinch of thyme (if you wish) and bake for 15 minutes at 350ºF.
  • Finish on the broiler set on high for a few minutes to get that nice brown top.
