I served this dish with slices of Tofurky and a green side salad.

All the flavors of this baked dish really came through – bringing on thoughts of Spring and Summer encouraging me to grow lots of tomatoes, squash and potatoes so I can make this dish fresh from the garden!

This encouraged me to get outside this past weekend to plant some seeds for tomatoes and summer squash. I also reached into my plump potato bags (where my potatoes are growing) and found these cutie pies:

I then promptly squealed with excitement at having grown these little gems – it’s the little things here that make me happy!!

Happy Meatless Monday everyone!

    Oh thank you for sharing this … it looks delicious! I’m guessing that the nutritional yeast gives it a “cheesy” flavor. Mmmm! I hope you don’t mind but I’ve “pinned” this one. Can’t wait to try it! :-)

    Yes, so yummy…and yes the nutritional yeast seems to give it a “cheesy” flavor. We’re addicted to the stuff and seem to put it on everything lately!! I hate to even look up if it’s not good for you at a certain point :)

    Beautiful! It sounds like the perfect seasonal transition sort of dish, with both hearty potatoes and somewhat summery tomatoes. And so simple, too. Consider it tonight’s dinner! ;)

    Oh I hope you liked the dish!! I’m thinking this will be a summer staple around here…maybe with some roasted corn too when it’s in season. Starting to get ready for summer!! Hope you have a fabulous weekend, thanks for stopping by my blog!
