mashed potatoes and chickpea gravy

Ok, first off, if you don’t know how to make mashed potatoes…. you should. They are one of the best winter foods ever! Add some chickpea gravy and you’ll be well on your way to making a holiday dinner to impress your veggie and non veggie pals.

Mashed Potatoes:

about 2 pounds of potatoes (russet or yukon gold) cut into 1 inch chunks

3 Tbsp non hydrogenated margarine ( I use Earth Balance)

1/2 cup veggie broth or soy milk

salt and pepper to taste

Bring potatoes to a boil for 20 min or so until they are tender.

Drain the potatoes and then add to a large bowl or back into the cooking pot.

add the margarine, soy milk (or veggie broth), salt and pepper and mash with a hand mixer or potato masher until light and fluffy.

Chickpea Gravy:

1/4 cup all purpose flour *GF variation, use GF all purpose flour or Garbanzo bean flour

2 1/2 cups water

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 medium onion,chopped

2 tsp mustard seeds

3 cloves garlic, minced or crushed

1 16 oz can chickpeas, rinsed

2 pinched cumin

2 pinches paprika

pinch of rosemary

pinch of thyme

pinch of oregano

pinch of coriander

3 Tbsp soy sauce * GF variation, use Tamari or other GF soy sauce

juice of 1 lemon

1/4 cup nutritional yeast

Mix water and flour until dissolved. In a large skillet add olive oil, onions, and mustard seeds and cook for 10 minutes until browned. Add garlic and lightly mashed chickpeas and stir together and then add spices, soy sauce and lemon juice. Lower heat and add flour mixture and stir until thick, add nutritional yeast. If it looks too thick, add a bit more water. Serve on potatoes, tofu, seitan or veggies. Vegan with a Vengeance
