Puree the following three ingredients in a food processor

In a medium fry pan sauté the following in 3 T Earth Balance or other vegan margarine:

½ cup chopped sweet red, orange or yellow bell pepper

½ of an onion

1 clove garlic

This recipe is from Sarah Gordon. Sarah suggests serving the casserole with a kale salad or a side of sautéed greens or as a vegan BBQ side. The Gordon family refers to this dish as “pudding”, but we think of it more like a soufflé. Whatever you call it, this is a special dish indeed.
