This recipe will make enough to serve 4-6 adults as a main dish, or 8-12 people as a side dish. Leftovers can be stored in the covered baking dish or in another covered container in the refrigerator for a few days.
This recipe can be cooked in either a microwave oven on "high" in about 30-40 minutes, or in a conventional oven at 350 degrees F in about an hour.
If you are not using canned chick peas, we suggest that you cook the chick peas (1 lb.) the day before, and store them in the refrigerator; or cook them in a crock pot over night or in a pot on the stovetop early in the morning.
Begin by washing and cleaning the cabbage, and washing and peeling the potatoes, carrots, and onions. Slice them all into bite-sized pieces, place them into a large covered baking dish, and cook covered until the veggies are tender. To ensure uniform cooking, mix every 5 minutes when cooking in a microwave oven, or every 10 minutes when cooking in a conventional oven.
While the potatoes, cabbage, carrots, and onions are cooking, prepare the uncheese sauce by placing the drained chick peas in the container of a high speed blender. Add the lemon juice, nutritional yeast, cayenne pepper or hot sauce (if desired), and smoke flavor (if desired), cover the container, and run the blender at high speed until the ingredients are creamy smooth (use the tamper as necessary).
When the potatoes, cabbage, carrots and onions are cooked, add the uncheese sauce, mix well, and cook for another 5 minutes uncovered in the microwave oven, or 10 minutes in a conventional oven.
Serve and enjoy with a large tossed salad, or serve as a side dish.
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!
