1 lb parsnips, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling
coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
2 TBL butter replacement (Earth Balance), plus 3 TBL melted, plus more for dish
2 large leeks, white and pale-green parts only, halved lengthwise, thinly sliced, and rinsed well (3 cups)
1/3 cup dry white wine
2 TBL fresh thyme, finely chopped
2 cups Silk soy original creamer
2 egg replacements (Bob’s Red Mill 5 TBL whisked with 15 TBL water)
1 cup dairy-free grated parmesan cheese (Soya Kaas)
1 loaf bread, cut into 1-inch cubes, crusts removed
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Drizzle parsnips with oil, and season with salt and pepper. Place on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast, shaking occasionally, until caramelized and tender, about 25 minutes. Let cool. Reduce heat to 375 degrees F.
In a large skillet, melt 2 TBL butter replacement (Earth Balance) over medium heat. Add leeks and cook until tender, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add wine and reduce heat to simmer. Let simmer until reduced, 1 minute. Add thyme, stir, and remove from heat. Stir in roasted parsnips.
In a large bowl, whisk together melted butter, Silk soy, prepared egg replacement, and 3/4 cup parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Add leek-parsnip mixture, then fold in bread (mixture can be made 1 day in advance and refrigerated overnight).
Grease a shallow 2-quart baking dish and pour parsnip mixture into dish. Cover loosely with parchment, then foil, and bake until golden brown and puffed, about 50 minutes. Remove parchment and foil. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup parmesan and return to oven. Bake for 10 minutes.
Tip: if making 1 day head of time, refrigerate unbaked mixture overnight, let stand at room temp for 15 minutes before baking, and bake as noted.
