Surrounded by an exploding deadly virus and multiple wildfires, the current state of Arizona is close to being hell on Earth.
Comfort food is needed more than ever before. Today’s craving is Mac N’ Daiya!
And leaving recipes alone is not in my vocabulary. Let’s enhance normality. Let’s create character and texture:)
Veggies were lightly roasted before being lightly broiled. A new (to me) Ⓥegan Milk was utilized. Seasoned with Garlic powder, Sea Salt & Pepper, Smoky Tempeh was added to the little Milky mixture. The Mac was barely under cooked, drained and added to the mix with the Daiya ‘cheese’.
The roasted Veggies were added with a little more Ⓥ Milk. This hit the spot:):)
Beyond Breakfast ‘sausages’ were hiding in my freezer. These ‘sausages’ are extremely meat-like and not wished to be consumed regularly. A Ⓥegan Breakfast was prepared.
Create your own!
Traditional recipes names are boring. This recipe is nowhere near traditional, anyways. Let’s make it Vegan with texture & character. My recipes are Super spontaneous and meant to be inspiration to create your own recipe:)
This began mixing Salsa, Water, Carrot, Split Pea, Onion, Potato into soupiness that became chunky once the Peas were cooked in.
In a bigger pot, Garlic and Beyond Beef were slightly pan-fried before Rice was mixed in. After browning, Water, a curry cube and Cilantro were combined. Eventually, the prior concoction was tossed in and cooked appropriately.
A skillet was preheated and the rice mixture was thrown in with Vegan Tomato Basil Soup. Organic Tater Tots were baked. Daiya was melted into the Riceyness. Tater Tots to top with a garnish of Cilantro. BOOM.
Corn Tortillas were spread with Bean/Corn Salsa and thrown on a flat iron skillet.
Topped with Daiya halves and sliced Avocado, these tortillas were folded and seared on both sides.
A Ⓥegan ingredient and location play on the “traditional” ‘Philly Cheese Steak’ sandwich.
Tempeh was the protein prepared in this Ⓥ sandwich Beast.
Onion, Mushroom and Tomatoes helped beef up this sandwich, Vegan-style.
Daiya everywhere. Daiya facial. Daiya lotion.
The tempeh and Veggies were pan-seared with a previously mixed concoction of Veggie Broth, White Wine Vinegar, Lime Juice, Sea Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, Chipotle Powder and CILANTRO:)
Stuffed into Whole Wheat Bread lathered with a Ⓥ Bean/Corn Dip, this Beastly sandwich posed well for a few photos.
Mac n’ Daiya was being craved. And spicing that Mac n’ Daiya was mouth-watering.
