Serves: 12 servings
  • 5 medium potatoes, peeled and coarsely chopped (about 1½ pounds)
  • ½ cup unsweetened dairy-free milk beverage
  • 1 teaspoon + 2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 large carrots, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cups small cauliflower florets
  • 3 pounds mushrooms, quartered
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 3 cups low-sodium vegetable stock or broth
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 6 tablespoons non-GMO cornstarch
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F and grease a 13x9-inch baking dish.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the potatoes and simmer for 10 minutes, or until fork-tender. Drain the potatoes and transfer them to a mixing bowl.
  3. Add the milk beverage and 1 teaspoon salt to the potatoes, and mix on medium speed for 3 minutes, or until smooth.
  4. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the celery, carrots, onion, and cauliflower and sauté for 7 minutes, or until the vegetables are almost tender. Add the mushrooms and cook for 9 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the tomato paste and cook, while stirring, for 2 minutes.
  5. Reserve 6 tablespoons stock in a small bowl. Stir the remaining stock, peas, thyme, pepper, and remaining 2 teaspoons salt into the cooked vegetables. Heat to a simmer, scraping the browned bits from bottom of pot.
  6. Whisk the starch into the reserved stock until dissolved. Stir the slurry into the vegetable stock mixture in your pot.
  7. Transfer the vegetable-stock mixture to your prepared baking dish. Evenly top it with the potato mixture.
  8. Bake for 35 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned.
  9. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
