Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F (190 C).

  2. In a skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add tomatoe, mushrooms and green onions then sweat for 10 minutes. Add garlic, basil and oregano, then continue cooking for 2 minutes.

  3. In a bowl, mix the chickpea flour, the nutritional yeast and the vegetable broth.

  4. Remove the pan from the heat and add the vegetables to the flour mixture. Also add the vegan meat, cheeze and baking powder. Mix well, then season with salt, turmeric and pepper.

  5. Divide the mixture into baking dishes (oiled muffin cups or ramekins). Bake 10 to 25 minutes (depending on the size of the dish) or until a toothpick comes out clean.
