Deconstructed Garden Pie

This is one of this dishes that just happened. I had no direction when I started cooking dinner; just some ingredients and a hungry VegFam. After I finished my full ass plate of this stuff, I realized it kinda reminded me of a shepherd's pie, which is I guess how it got that stupid name. Whatever. It was tasty, and quite decadent. I recommend you make it for someone you're trying to impress, or bang, or both.

1 very small butternut squash, roasted, peeled, and pureed
1 sweet potato, roasted, peeled, and pureed
1/2 tbsp turbinado sugar
1 tbsp tamari
cayenne, to taste
olive oil
2 garlic cloves, sliced
2 c baby spinach
2 c sliced oyster mushrooms
1 tsp liquid smoke
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
2 tbsp sunflower seeds
  1. Combine your pureed butternut squash, sweet potato, turbinado sugar, and cayenne in a bowl. Set aside. 
  2. Get some olive oil nice and hot on a very low setting; add in the sliced garlic cloves.
  3. In a separate frying pan, heat some more olive oil, and saute the oyster mushrooms. Add in the liquid smoke and tamari. 
  4. When the mushrooms are done and the garlic in your other pan is nice and brown, remove the garlic pan from the heat and toss in the spinach, until wilted. 
  5. To plate: spinach first, sprinkle with nutritional yeast. Then the puree. Then mushrooms. Garnish with sunflower seeds.
I served mine with these beautiful asparagus spears
