Mac N’ Fun

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:):)

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.

PHX Daiya Steakless

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.

My sloppy concoction is in the link above, Zelda.

A0EDE6AF-A372-4B21-80A1-E5D22764C6FB_1_105_c

Simply put, construction of these sandwiches was meant to not be completely sloppy. Waffle Fries were utilized to stabilize the sandwich.

BD24E128-181A-41E5-A8AB-889E4ABF171C_1_105_cCC1C870D-1BF6-4A17-BA8A-6BFD8B8988DA_1_105_c1C0CCF18-73F1-4AAD-8BAA-35CE9C7BFFFB_1_105_c54B002CA-9BA8-402B-B673-6CBEA4426F6A_1_105_c

The Whole Wheat Buns were toasted prior to being lathered with a mixture of Vegenaise, BBQ Sauce and Horseradish. They were then slightly broiled.
The bottom portion of the Bun was layered with a few Waffle Fries. The concept was to hold the SouWe Jo slop intact. The top bun covered the Awesomeness and BOOM.
