Corn Tortilla and Veggie Stacks with Red Pepper Coulis


As a dinner post, I would like to share a recipe I created last week. It actually was an inspiration based on a whim but those are the best, I hear. It consists of layering and grilling vegetables, but overall it is a quick weekday meal.

 serves 2


 3 corn tortillas

1 cup asparagus stalks

1/2 cup mushrooms

1 Japanese eggplant, sliced and peeled

Red Pepper Coulis

 3/4 cup red peppers (from a jar)

1/2 cup Veganaise

1 garlic clove, minced

1/2 cup packed parsley

1 Tbsp lemon juice

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp cayenne


 Peel and slice the eggplant with 1 inch thick slices. Lightly oil a grill and cook the eggplant for 5 to 7 minutes. Do not overcook. Add salt and pepper to taste. Saute’ asparagus and mushrooms for 5 to 7 minutes and set aside for assembly.

Place all ingredients for sauce in a bowl and blend with an immersion blender.

Heat 3 tortillas. Place 1 1/2 Tbsp of the coulis on a plate.

 Lay one tortilla on top of the sauce. Add 1/2 Tbsp of coulis onto tortilla and top with some veggies.

 Repeat with second layer.
Add top tortilla and top with 1/2 Tbsp of coulis and decorate with veggies. Eat with knife and fork!

 Since there is no meat or fat, your fat comes from the veganaise. You will have 1/2 cup of coulis left for another use. This was suprisingly scrumptious and I hope to make it again!
