An edible garden you can eat right after “planting”? Sounds like a soil-proof plan for a vegan-friendly meal. Recipe was made exclusively for Becel by Chef Matt Dean Pettit.

Ingredients List

  1. EDIBLE GARDEN:
  2. 6 slices pumpernickel bread
  3. 1 cup (250 mL) kalamata olives, pitted and chopped
  4. 1/4 cup (60 mL) toasted pumpkin seeds
  5. 1/4 cup (60 mL) raisins
  6. 1/4 cup (60 mL) roasted almonds
  7. 8 heirloom carrots, cleaned
  8. 6 small radishes, trimmed and cut in half
  9. 1/2 head cauliflower, cut into small florets
  10. 10 cherry tomatoes
  11. WHITE BEAN DIP
  12. 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) Becel® Vegan margarine
  13. 1 shallot, finely diced
  14. 1 can (425 g) cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  15. Juice of 1 lemon
  16. 2 sprigs parsley, chopped
  17. Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions

1. For Edible Garden, place pumpernickel bread, olives, pumpkin seeds, raisins and almonds into a food processor. Blitz until ingredients are blended and the mixture has a soil-like consistency.

2. Evenly distribute the “edible soil” on a large serving platter. “Plant” the veggies into the soil, placing them as if they were growing from it.

3. For White Bean Dip, in a food processor, add Becel® Vegan margarine, shallot, cannellini beans, lemon juice and parsley. Blitz until smooth, then season with salt and black pepper. Serve alongside the edible garden as a dip.
