Garlic Shells

For Easter I had created a wonderful garlic sauce for some scrambled tofu. We didn't use all the sauce so I got creative. There was no real recipe here but it went something like this.

Garlic Shells with Broccoli:
1 cup soaked cashews
4 cloves garlic sauted in olive oil for 1 minute
Enough soy milk to make it smooth in the blender.

Mix the shells, sauce, and broccoli and eat right away or bake for 15-20 minutes.
We had extra faux sausages left over from the Sunday brunch so I threw those in, just to use them up.

I guess this qualifies for a cassarol - a great way to use up ingredients.

I'm obsessed with garlic AND broccoli, so that dish looks absolutely heavenly to me - yum!

How long do you soak the cashews for? This sounds super yummy.

Thanks Veggiegirl! You will love this dish!

Cynthia - I like to soak them over night in the fridge. I've heard of other soaking them for only 1/2 hour in warm water. I love using cashew cream in many dishes so I normally keep a little container of soaking cashews in the fridge and then I change the water every couple of days.

I love your recipes! I am desperately in need of quick and tasty meals and this is the perfect fit! I especially like that I can throw it in the oven for 20 minutes and go and do something else!
