READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by VegSocialWorker

From Susan V at We thought this was sooo good. I love the sauce and may have to use it in other recipes. It's cheesy and creamy and really hits the spot when I'm craving dairy cheese. This is super easy to make as well.

I reduced the mustard by half (too much) and left out the marinade and tempeh part. I used just potatoes and the cheese sauce. Excellent! My non vegan mother loved it, and my lactose intolerant sister loved it! It's like cheesy Au Gratin potatoes. I made a batch of just the sauce and thickened it. Poured it over small gluten free noodles and it was great as well! You can add peas and a can of tuna and have an amazing filling dish. My sister loves this even more!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice the tempeh about 1/4-inch thick. In a flat, microwavable baking dish arrange the tempeh slices in a single layer. Mix the remaining ingredients and pour over the tempeh.
  2. In the microwave, cook on high power for 3 minutes. Turn or rearrange any pieces that were not covered by broth and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Then cook at 50% power for 3 more minutes. Allow the tempeh to stay in the broth until you're ready to assemble the casserole.
  3. Make the sauce by putting all the sauce ingredients except the tarragon into a blender and blending until completely pureed. Stir in the tarragon just before using the sauce.
  4. Preheat the oven to 400°F Oil a large, 3-quart casserole (or use two smaller casseroles). Wash the potatoes and cut them in half lengthwise. Slice each half into 1/4-inch slices.
  5. Put half of the potato slices in the bottom of the casserole dish. Lift the tempeh out of its marinade and arrange it on top. Put the remaining potatoes over the tempeh. Stir the sauce and pour it over the potatoes. Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper and cover tightly.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes. Remove the cover, sprinkle with vegan Parmesan, and bake for 10-15 more minutes, until potatoes are tender and sauce has thickened. Remove from the oven and let stand a few minutes before serving.
