There are many ways to stuff a zucchini vegan style. Today I have chosen a filling which comes close to the original meat recipe and which you can eat often in Greece or other Mediterranean countries.
You need vegan mince (ground for the American friends) for it. There are plenty of options to buy in either the supermarket or a health food store. Frozen or fresh. Choose the one you like most, it will work with either minced meat.
In other recipes I used cashews and/or tofu for a cheese like sauce. This time we do it simple and use only plant-based milk and nutritional yeast. And – that is the secret for the cheesy texture and chewiness – tapioca starch. There is no other starch which gives a vegan cheesy sauce this typical melted cheese character. You can find it either in health food stores or order it online.
Quite frankly – this is the cheesiest vegan sauce I know. If you use this cheesy sauce to gratinate something, you’ll be amazed how close it looks and taste to real cheese. Give it a try!
