Fishy Mushroom Casserole

I mean fishy in the best possible way. This was called a "tu-no" casserole by the author, but let's be honest with ourselves. It's a mushroom casserole with kelp flavor.

What I changed:

  • Used kelp flavored #seaweed instead of kelp flakes (might double next time)

  • Quick soaked the cashews

  • Added salt to the sauce, by mistake, worked out fine

  • Added more peas (because I had more peas)

  • Add a sprinkle of salt after plating

Source: Forks Over Knives | Serves: 1 casserole | Time: 1+ hr



2½ cups unsweetened, unflavored plant milk

½ cup unsalted #cashews

1 tsp onion powder

½ tsp black pepper

½ tsp salt

1 tbsp kelp flavored seaweed (might double next time)


1½ cups uncooked elbow or small-shell pasta (I used Ancient Harvest with quinoa and corn)

1 medium yellow onion, chopped

8 medium cremini or white #mushrooms, sliced

2 ½ cups green #peas (frozen and thawed, or canned)

2 15-ounce cans #chickpeas, rinsed and drained

Fishy Mushroom Casserole


Place the plant milk, cashews, granulated onion, pepper, and kelp into a blender and set aside (so the cashews can soften). [Or, do what I did, and quick soak the cashews in boiled water and then blend all the ingredients together.]

Cook the pasta in a soup pot according to the instructions on the package; drain and place the pasta back into the soup pot, off of the heat.

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Add the onions and mushrooms to a skillet on high heat, stirring and cooking for 3 to 5 minutes until softened and lightly browned, adding a little water only as needed to prevent sticking. Add this mixture, as well as the peas, to the pot of cooked pasta.

Place the garbanzo beans into a food processor and pulse just until the beans are broken down, but not mushy. (You can also use a potato masher.) Add to the soup pot.

Blend the sauce ingredients until smooth. Add to the soup pot and stir.

Spoon into a 9 × 13-inch baking dish. Bake uncovered for 35 to 40 minutes, until the top is lightly browned.
