Happy Monday everyone, and it is fruitsandveggiesmonday with lenasveganliving, here is my entry baked aubergine and mushroom with vegan bacon bits and mushrooms with wild mushroom sauce, all the mushrooms you can handle and as always I use my own mushrooms which I have picked and dried. Here is the evidence.

List of stuff you need.

1 aubergine
225g tofu
1 can chopped tomatoes
35g dried wild mushrooms
4 large flat brown mushrooms
500g button mushrooms
3 onions
8 garlic cloves
Hand full fresh basil
Liquid smoke
Soy sause
300ml plant based milk
2 heaped spoons corn flour

OK to make the vegan bacon bits, it's just a matter crumbling up a block of tofu and fry it in a pan.

image

Once the tofu is golden brown give it a few squirts of liquid smoke.

image

Then pour in a little soy sause, not too much or your mouth will dry up.

image

Then you just keep on frying it till it is a dry again and crispy.

image

Then grab a pan throw in one chopped onion and 4 garlic cloves chopped up, add 250g chopped Button mushrooms.

image

Fry it till it is reduced, and then add a can of tomotoes, a pinch of salt and pepper, and hand full of chopped basil.

image

Just keep on frying till it starts getting dry and add the vegan bacon bits.

image

Then to make aubergine bowls.

image

Wash and cut in half.

image

Scoop out the inside with a spoon, I keep it and throw it in soup for another meal, no wastage.

image

Lay them out on a baking tray with the mushrooms.

image

Then stuff them.

image

Bake them in the oven for about 45 minutes at medium heat.

image

Then to make the wild mushroom sauce, you need to pre cook the mushrooms, about 35g dried wild mushrooms in 500ml water with a teaspoon salt cook for about 15 minutes , the water will be the stock, so don't throw out.

image

Pull out the mushrooms from the water.

image

Chop them up and throw them in a pan and fry.

image

Chop up two onions and garlic and chuck them in the pan.

image

Then 250g chopped button mushrooms.

image

Then that mushroom stock.

image

Then let it simmer for 15 minutes. Mix the corn flour and vegan milk.

image

Dump it in the pan and stir till it starts getting thick.

image

Then it is just a matter of gobbling it down. Oh and to keep with the Halloween vibe here is the a pumpkin my daughter carved, it is Harry Potter. Only treats no tricks please.
