Alas the first chosen winner for Vegan Sandwiches Save The Day never responded and therefore some other lucky person is the new winner!

In other interesting development, below is Tater Tot Casserole, Duggar style, just a lot healthier. 

Tater Tot Casserole is amazing because you can utilize whatever protein you'd like for the bottom layer: soy curls (thanks, Dorian!), TVP, ground seitan, tofu, marinated, grilled and diced, or tempeh. I used Soy Curls, rehydrated and sauteed with onion and garlic. The sauce is a creamy "chicken" style gravy. The whole thing is slathered with tater tots and baked to golden crispiness. 

It is as easy as you want it to be and it is sure to be the favorite of any kid. Throw some veggies on the side to make it a complete meal. 

I've blogged about Tater Tot Casserole before, but this time, I am taking the time to write up the recipe.


Cost Breakdown

Soy Curls: $3

onion, flour, spices: $.75
almond milk: $1.50
tater tots: $3
Total to make 5 servings:
$8.25



RECIPE UPDATE: this dish has been tested and revised and will be featured in the upcoming cookbook "Everyday Vegan Eats," by Zsu Dever.

    1. You also happen to have *the* best recipe for it in American Vegan Kitchen. I'm just trying to help out those poor unfortunate ones who don't have a copy of it. They just have to settle a bit.

  2. I think it should be mandatory to own a copy of AVK. Just saying...
    Looking forward to seeing your spin on it. Tater Tots, the best junk food ever!
