mashed potatoes with cashew gravy, green beans and collard greens

Serves 2


2-3 medium red potatoes
1 small head of cauliflower
1/4 cup veggie broth (ic friendly)
sea salt and fresh pepper (to taste)
1 bunch collard greens
1-2 T onions (optional, if tolerated)
1 clove garlic
red pepper (to taste)
1 cup fresh/frozen green beans
1 T olive oil

for the cashew gravy:

1 cup cashews, soaked beforehand if necessary
2 t tahini paste (if tolerated)
fresh thyme (to taste)
1 small garlic clove
1/2 cup veggie broth
1 T coconut aminos (if tolerated)
salt and fresh pepper (to taste)

Bring a large pot of water to boil. Wash and cut up the potatoes and cauliflower and cook until soft (test them with a fork). Drain the water and mash them with veggie broth, salt and pepper (butter or vegan butter optional).

Meanwhile, wash and de-stem the collards. Steam them for 15-20 minutes.

Heat up olive oil in a frying pan or cast iron skillet. Saute onions (if using) for a couple of minutes. Add red peppers and saute a few minutes more. Add beans. Add collards to the pan when they are cooked. Add the garlic when everything else is lightly sauteed and cook about a minute more. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

For the gravy, blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor until saucy. Serve everything together and enjoy!
