We prepare this casserole in our microwave oven on "high", but it can just as easily be prepared in a conventional oven at 350 degrees F., though the cooking time will be somewhat longer.
Wash, peel, and dice the onions and place in a large covered ceramic baking dish. Add the hot red pepper sauce or cayenne pepper and mix well. Cover the baking dish and place in the oven until the onions begin to get translucent.
While the onions are cooking, wash, peel, and cube the potatoes into 3/8 to 1/2 inch pieces.
When the onions are done, remove the baking dish from the oven and add the potatoes. Mix well. Cover the baking dish and place back in the oven until the potatoes are hot and begin to soften.
While the potatoes are cooking, wash the asparagus and cut into bite-sized pieces. When the potatoes begin to soften, add the asparagus, re-cover, and place back in the oven until the asparagus is tender.
While the asparagus is cooking, wash and peel the carrots and place in a high speed blender such as the Vita-Mix pictured left. Add the lemon juice. beans, nutritional yeast (not brewers or baking yeast), and cornstarch. Cover the blender and run at high speed until the ingredients are smooth.
When the asparagus is cooked, remove the baking dish from the oven and add the blended sauce ingredients and mix well. Cover the baking dish and place back in the oven until the sauce is hot and begins to thicken. Remove the baking dish from the oven and mix contents well again. Cover, and place the baking dish back in the oven.
When the sauce forms a fairly firm top on the asparagus and potato casserole, as pictured to the right, remove from the oven.
The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live! (d-16)
