A Russet Potato was sliced Hasselback-style and roasted. The roasted Potato was stuffed with chopped Daiya slices to be further roasted. A Daiya Sauce was constructed on top of the oven in a saucepan.

Coconut Milk (dairy-free) Creamer was simmered and seasoned with Garlic Powder, Crushed Red Pepper Flakes, Sea Salt and Pepper. After heating, chopped Broccoli Florets and five slices of Daiya were stirred into the Vegan Cream. The heat was increased, allowing the dairy-free greatness to expand while stirring frequently.

The Sauce stood for a few minutes before engulfing the plated daiya infused Hasselback-style Potato. Vegan Bacon was a tasty garnish for this amazing Potato.

CHEERS

MexMac N Daiya

Daiya™ Mac N Cheese was experienced. And, of course, it couldn’t be just Mac N Cheese. The Diaya™ product was infused with Mexican-style ingredients. Away from the Mac N Cheese, Mexballs were created.

The Mexballs were a combination of Almond Milk, Lightlife™ ‘sausage’ & ‘beef’, (cooked) Quinoa, Scallions, Corn, Cilantro, (Italian-style) Breadcrumbs, Garlic, Sea Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder and Cayenne. A few more Breadcrumbs were added after mixing to obtain the correct consistency. After balls were molded, baking carefully took place.

The Mac N Cheese was prepared just as the package suggested, however, after draining the Whole Wheat Pasta, Bean Sauce, Noodles, Wild Rice, Green Peppers, Jalapeños, Cilantro and Daiya™ Cheese Sauce were tossed together.

RIP, Anthony Bourdain.

Once, many years ago, in a culinary career attempt, Anthony Bourdain was most inspiring to me-influencing realism and motivation to be oneself.
