Now take all the washed spinach leaves and place them on top the veggie burgers, it will seem like a lot of spinach but it cooks down – don’t worry. Take the Tofu or Mashed Potatoes, or Cooked Brown Rice and add the curry powder, cumin powder, and minced garlic and mix well… and then add this as a complete layer over the spinach.

Now sprinkle with a little salt and pepper for extra flavor. Next add tomato slices and sprinkle on Nutritional Yeast, then add red pepper flakes and spray the whole top of the casserole with a little oil so it browns.

Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 60 minutes or until golden brown.

Nutritional Yeast is one of the best sources of B vitamins including B12 which is important if you are a vegan. Plus Nutritional Yeast has over 13 grams of protein per oz (high protein), and with very few calories – lower than 80 calories per oz. Just a couple of tablespoons has more protein than you find in 6 grams of beef, 1 egg, and even 1 cup of milk. – Wow!
