Filling
1 can artichoke hearts 
½ cup red bell pepper, chopped
½ small red onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups spinach, washed
1 block extra-firm tofu (squeeze water out)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
¼ teaspoon sriracha

¼ cup white-rice or potato-starch flour
1 tablespoon Brewer’s yeast (sold at such health-food stores as GNC) 
½ teaspoon
apple-cider vinegar 
1¼ teaspoons kosher salt, to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions
Preheat oven to 375 or 400 degrees. 
In a medium skillet over medium heat, add oil, onion, artichoke hearts, garlic and bell pepper and heat until onion has softened, about 5 minutes. Add spinach and stir until the spinach has wilted. Remove from heat and place in a blender or food processor, blending until the vegetables are chopped fine but not puréed. Transfer to a medium-sized bowl and set aside. 
In the same blender, add tofu, lemon juice, sriracha, white-rice or potato-starch flour, Brewer’s yeast, apple-cider vinegar and salt. Blend until very smooth. Transfer to the bowl with the vegetables and stir to combine.

Directions
Place one sheet phyllo down and spray with vegetable spray. Place another on top and spray again. Fold in half and half again. Spray with each fold. Coat 4-ounce ramekin with vegetable spray. 
Tuck folded phyllo dough into ramekin, creating a well. Let phyllo hang over rim to create ruffled edge. Fill ramekin with mixture and tap bottom to fill air pockets. Place in oven for 18-20 minutes.

Roasted Vegetables

12 flowerets cauliflower
Salt and pepper, to taste

Reduce to sauce consistency.

Fried Kale

2 cups oil
Salt

Directions
