This is fantastic!!!!!! I cook vegan for a living and I made this today and it was delicious. Even carnivores loved it, didn't know what was in it. I added a tablespoon of nutritional yeast (nooch) and a tablespoon of corn starch so it wouldn't run. Baked it until golden brown and it was a hit. I also made Greek potatoes with it and a Greek salad with my own homemade vegan feta "cheeze." Great recipe. Thanks for sharing.
