This is a very tasty and easy torte to make. You can use it as the center of a light meal or as a savory side dish.
1 Butternut squash (medium)
1/2 block tofu (drained)
1/2 cup quick oats
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup sesame seeds raw
2 Tbsp. onion powder or 1 tsp. if you're not a onion lover
1 tsp. garlic powder (1/2 tsp. if you're not a garlic lover)
2 Tbsp. olive oil
Salt to taste
Peel squash and cut into chunks. Put squash in blender with the tofu, the sesame seeds and with 3/4 cups water and process till smooth.
Scrape into a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients, blending well till you have a soft dough-like paste, it should not be runny.
Line a baking dish with parchment paper and brush it with olive oil. Spread the paste on top of the oiled parchment paper.
Bake at 400º F for 30 minutes. If it is not golden brown yet, lower to 375º F and bake a little longer. Serve topped with a sauce or with your favorite vegan white or pimento "cheese." Add a salad and a light dessert and you've got an easy meal!
If you would like to turn this into a more substantial dish, you can stuff it with any of our strips recipes.
