It all started with this sauce. I made it in my Vitamix. It's a very powerful sauce so I was thinking about what I could use it on. I will say that the batch was HUGE and I will be using it for much more than you will be seeing here. For the recipe of this sauce...this is what I did...
4 Large Tomatoes
2 T Grapeseed Oil
1/2 C Almond Milk
1 Small Onion
4 Cloves Garlic
Sounds easy enough, right? Well, it pretty much was! But...it DOES pack a powerful punch! If you like garlic you will like this. Lucky for me - I LOVE Garlic!
Here's a photo of the finished product. It's a layered Casserole. One of my favorite recipes of all time is Dreena Burton's Hummus Quinoa Casserole and I decided to take that idea and run with it. I did red Quinoa on the bottom layer - then a hefty layer of Garlic Hummus on the next layer and then a layer of Carrots, Onions, and Celery. I topped it with the sauce above. As well as a bit of Basil. It turned out wonderful!
Here's another look at it. A single serving if you will. Great for the main dish or a side dish. Works great for lunches or dinner!
And below that photo another...you can see the Quinoa and Hummus better in that one.
And below that one I mixed it all together for my lunch today! A different was of presenting it and eating it, I guess. Kind of reminds me of mashed potatoes. Which I might actually try and Smashed Potato Dish using Quinoa after seeing this! It's not the prettiest mashed dish but it sure was tasty!
I wanted to blog a bit more about our plans for the Rooftop Garden today but ran out of time so I will save it for later this week! I hope you all have a wonderful day! Thanks for taking the time to visit! Question of the Day: What is your favorite Mashed Dish or ingredients TO mash!?
