Chickpea Casserole
2/3 cup raw cashews
1 cup unsweetened soy milk
4 garlic cloves
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp dried sage
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp light miso paste
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp of black pepper

2 medium yellow potatoes
2 medium carrots
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp olive oil, divided
6 mushrooms
1/3 cup dry white wine
1 cup chickpeas
1/2 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup frozen corn
1 cup frozen chopped spinach
1 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
3 cups sourdough bread cubes (1in ch cubes)
2 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper

Start by placing the cashews in a bowl and covering them with boiling water. Set aside to soften. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Dice the potatoes and carrots into small bite-sized pieces. Then transfer to a lined baking tray along with the unpeeled, whole garlic cloves. Drizzle with 1 tbsp of olive oil and season with 1/4 tsp of kosher salt. Toss to coat evenly and then spread the veggies into a single layer for even roasting.
Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown around the edges and fork-tender in the centers. In the meantime, chop the mushrooms and set them aside. Then cut the sourdough into 1 inch cubes and set aside too.
Add the remaining 2 tbsp of olive oil to a large frying pan and set to medium-high. Once warm, add the mushrooms and let sit undisturbed for 3-4 minutes to brown. Reduce the heat to med and add the rosemary + 1/4 tsp kosher salt. Cook for another 1-2 minutes. Deglaze the pan with 1/3 cup white wine and simmer until all but 1 tbsp of liquid is evaporated.
Next add the chickpeas, frozen peas, corn, and spinach. Sauté on low heat, stirring occasionally. Cook for 3-4 minutes, then turn off the heat and set aside. Remove the veggies from the oven and set the garlic cloves to the side. Add the potatoes + carrots to the frying pan with the veggies and chickpeas.
Make the Sauce
Squeeze the now softened garlic into a blender to remove the peels. Then drain the water from the cashews and add them to a blender along with the soy milk, and the remaining sauce ingredients, and blend until the sauce is silky smooth. Pour the sauce into the frying pan over the veggies and toss well to coat. Transfer the mixture to a 9in pie dish or 9in square baking dish. Then place the sourdough bread cubes in a large mixing bowl and drizzle olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Place the seasoned bread on top of the veggies and bake for 30 minutes. Rest for 10 minutes before serving.
