This rib-sticking, deliciously hearty dish is perfect next to protein. Shown above, I paired it with almond crusted halibut. However, it can easily also do double duty, pleasing vegans very well on its own. If you are serving a vegan choose olive oil instead of butter or ghee, and nut milk instead of milk. I make it both ways and it is just as good.
This casserole feeds eight or ten people, and no worries if you don’t eat it all, the leftovers are very welcome warmed up. Happy to have this on repeat, I have made it just for the two of us, so don’t think of it only for a feast, although it would certainly be great for that.
It takes a bit of time to do, although it is not difficult. Allow 2 hours, from just starting to when it is on the table. Keep on to the next step, while other things are cooking. Relax and enjoy the contemplative process.
