Ingredients

Filling

  • 4 large carrots
  • 2 cups lentils
  • 1 tbsp garlic infused oil
  • 2 cups chopped tomatoes
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • thyme, paprika, salt & pepper

Mashed Cauliflower

  • 2 heads cauliflower
  • 4 tbsp butter (can sub vegan butter)
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • ¼ cup homemade unsweetened almond milk, as needed

Instructions

  1. Heat garlic-infused oil in a frying pan on medium.
  2. Add the carrots and cook for 4-5 minutes.
  3. Stir often.
  4. Then add the tomatoes, vegetable stock, lentils (precooked), pumpkin seeds, thyme, and paprika.

  11. Add almond milk as needed to help with purée.
  12. Add other ingredients and process until well combined.
  13. Might need to mix in halves depending on the size of the food processor.
  14. Once it is a whipped consistency, smear the mashed cauliflower on top of the filling and bake as instructed above.
  15. Enjoy!
