Roasted Mushrooms + Whipped Cauliflower

Today was just one of those days that you'll remember forever even though nothing happened worth remembering.
  • The whole VegFam stayed up late (3am) and slept in (VegKid woke up at 10 and BandMan and I were right behind her at 11). 
  • We ate a modest brunch and drank a pot of coffee.
  • We took a long bike ride next to the river to go to the thrift store, to see friends, and to cruise around in general. 
  • I made dinner while VegKid played and BandMan listened to his vault of music that hasn't made the cut yet. 
  • We ate dinner outside, mingled with the neighbors, and I made dessert for the sci-fi movie BandMan and I are about to watch. 
It's been a relaxed, lazy, beautiful day which is why BandMan requested comfort food when I asked what I should make for dinner. I thought about all the fattening disgusting (vegan) foods I could make to make this day even better but opted for something a little healthier and Cheesus! this "steak and potatoes" dish is to die for.

2 lbs mushrooms
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp liquid smoke
salt and pepper, to taste
1 tbsp vegan buttery spread
3 garlic cloves, sliced
1/2 tsp steak seasoning
  1. Preheat the oven 425
  2. Coat the shrooms with the oil, smoke, salt, and pepper. 
  3. Roast in a pan for about 35 minutes or so.
  4. Melt the buttery spread and heat up the garlic with the steak seasoning. When it's all getting brown and smelling fly, throw in the mushrooms and give them a good coating.
  5. Serve on top of this whipped cauliflower. 

1 tbsp vegan buttery spread
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
1 c veggie broth
black pepper, to taste

  1. Melt that buttery spread and get your minced garlic all smelly. Don't burn that shit.
  2. Add in your cauliflower florets and give them a good browning before adding in the veggie broth. 
  3. Cover with a lid and cook until the cauliflower is super tender.
  4. Throw all that shit in the blender with a hefty amount of black pepper. Whirl it up until it's the consistency you love.
