I woke up this morning to this:
I was so happy that I had nothing on my calendar for today 🙂 I could enjoy the rain and have a cozy day.
and Comfort Food…..
Not only did this delectable dish satisfy my comfort food need, it also let me cross off another recipe from The List!
Recently Jessica (the domestic vegan) suggested to me this mac and cheeze from VeganYumYum. She also suggested to use more veggies, less Earth Balance, and more nutritional yeast. I complied and the result was SOOO GOOD!
I followed the recipe as it was but I made the following changes:
–increased the potatoes to 1½ cups
–increased the broccoli to 2½ cups
–decreased the Earth Balance to 2½ tbsp.
–increased the nutritional yeast to ½ cup
–added 2 chopped and sautéed portobello mushroom caps and ½ cup of frozen peas to the pasta and broccoli when mixing in with the sauce
-used panko bread crumbs instead of making my own. I think this is why my breadcrumbs didn’t brown properly…. I’ll have to experiment.
That’s all! I was so impressed with the sauce. I think the trick is in the cashews and potatoes, they make it soooo creamy! The extra nutritional yeast is a definite must for me. I love it!
Andy loved it too! He was pretty skeptical about vegan mac & cheeze but his worries were a waste. This was so good! Perfect for the rainy weather 🙂 Pure comfort food!
Mmmmmm I can’t wait to have the leftovers tomorrow. Anyone else tried vegan mac & cheeze?
Also, feel free to check out The List and suggest recipes for me to try for my uncompleted recipes!!
Time for bed! Sweet Dreams xo
