String beans, spinach, vegetables with uncheese sauce is a delightful vegan recipe that will serve about 8 adults as a main meal or double the number of servings as a side dish. We prepare this recipe in our wok. Leftovers can be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator for a few days, which is great if you don't want to cook every day.

Peel and dice the carrots and onions and place in the wok; wash and dice the celery and add to the wok along with the oregano and hot pepper. Stir-fry in a little water until the onions become semi-translucent.

If the spinach is in a frozen block, thaw it before adding to the wok along with the string beans, corn and peas, and continue stir-frying until the veggies are tender and hot.

Place the tofu, lemon juice, turmeric, nutritional yeast, and corn starch in a high speed blender.  Cover and blend on "high speed" until creamy smooth. If there is liquid in the wok, add an additional 2 tablespoons of corn starch for each estimated cup of liquid in the bottom of the wok.

Add the contents of the blender to the cooked veggies in the wok and continue stir-frying on low heat until the sauce thickens and the veggies are thoroughly coated with the uncheese sauce (about 2-3 minutes), and turn off the heat.  

Serve and Enjoy!

Vegan FlagThe 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!
