Thanks to wholesome lentils and umami-rich mushrooms and soy sauce, even meat lovers will enjoy this vegetarian take on a traditionally meaty comfort-food classic. For faster prep, pulse together the mushrooms, onion and carrot in a food processor until they're finely chopped.

Ras el hanout offers great bang for your buck in the flavour department. Just a bit of this North African spice blend adds depth to everything from meats to grains to sauces. It can be purchased premixed from Middle Eastern grocery stores or in specialty spice shops. If you can't find it, you can easily make your own using spices you already have on hand.
In food processor, pulse cauliflower into rice-size pieces. Spread onto parchment paper–lined rimmed baking sheet; drizzle with 1/2 tsp of the oil and sprinkle with half each of the salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Roast in 400°F oven, stirring once, until dry, about 10 minutes. Stir in half of the cilantro.
Meanwhile, sprinkle pork with remaining salt and pepper; rub all over with half of the ras el hanout. In large nonstick skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat; cook pork, turning once, until juices run clear when pork is pierced and just a hint of pink remains inside, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to plate; keep warm.
In same pan, bring tomatoes, tomato paste, onion powder, garlic powder and remaining ras el hanout to boil over medium-high heat; cook, stirring, until thickened, about 4 minutes. Stir in remaining cilantro. Add pork chops and any accumulated juices; cook until heated through. Serve over cauliflower mixture.
Tip from the Test Kitchen: To make your own ras el hanout, mix 1/2 tsp each ground cumin, ground ginger, turmeric and salt; 1/4 tsp each granulated sugar and pepper; and pinch each cayenne pepper, cinnamon, ground allspice, ground fennel seeds and ground cloves.

Breakfast loaves are often made with vegetable oil for moistness, but unsweetened applesauce works just as well. While this loaf is excellent on its own, if you want something a bit more indulgent, try topping your slice with a vegan butter-flavoured spread or a soy-based nut butter. Cost: $0.95 per serving
