Broccoli and Brussels Sprouts with Tomato Sauce

My roommate raved out this, saying that my kids (which I don't have) will have no trouble loving healthy food. :-) The truth is, the only fat in this recipe is in the soy milk, so we're doing well. I adapted it from "Vegetaria: the best-ever recipe collection" by Linda Fraser

1 onion, finely chopped (in mini-food processor)
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped (as above)
1 14-oz can diced no-salt added tomatoes
3 tablespoons tomato paste
6 tablespoons whole-wheat flour (or less if you want it less thick)
1.25 cups soy milk
1 cup water
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
about 2 small heads of broccoli (without stems)
about 10 oz brussel sprouts (about 10-15)
salt and pepper to taste

1. mix the onion, tomatoes, and tomato paste in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, lower and simmer gently for 15-20 minutes.

2. Mix 3 tbs of flour with the tomato and add milk and water. If it's not thick enough, add more flour.

3. Add nutritional yeast (to taste really) and stir mixture constantly until it boils and thickens. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Steam the broccoli and brussel sprouts for 5-10 minutes. Transfer the vegetables to a disk, pour the sauce over them and serve!

I served this over leftover quinoa, but the recipe doesn't even call for anything at all. I'll try that for tomorrow at lunch. This makes a TON of sauce, which I bet would be yummy with some pasta too.
