spinach and mushroom strata


I made this recipe on May 1. It is from 1,000 Vegan Recipes by Robin Robertson. I have been a fan of Robin's books since the first one I picked up way back when - Vegan Planet.

Back to the recipe: It says it makes 6 servings, but after I assembled it, I knew this would be too much for my family and I didn't picture this as all that popular as a leftover. So, I put it into two square cake pans and froze one. I grabbed it out of the freezer today and put it in the toasted oven - more welcome during the summer, and baked it for a little over an hour.

It turned out just as good as the first time and I didn't have to lift a finger. My kind of brunch.

The dish has spinach, mushrooms, onion, tofu, a little cheese and cubed bread.

Cost Breakdown:
onion, garlic, mushroom: $2
spinach: $2
tofu: $2
bread: $2
cheese: $2
Total to make 6 servings as written:


  1. I want that book, must get it sometime soon. This dish looks wonderful..two of my favorite things, mushrooms and spinach!

  2. If you do not have either Vegan Planet or 1,000 Vegan, I would get 1,000. It is a big volume. And if you get it, consider going through vegan.com - Erik makes some much needed $$ off Amazon to keep his blog going.
