>Vegan MoFo Day Two, Going Vegan Part Two, and Bubble-up Enchilada

>

Here in the US, its election day – did you vote?



Vegan MoFo day two has passed me by! 


I just ended it while watching Doctor Who and the End of Time part two. I have to admit, I got a little choked up. David Tennant, will you marry me?

I’m totally excited to catch up with Matt Smith as The Doctor – I’ve seen a few episodes, and they’re great. From what I’ve seen, he does a fantastic job (and he’s adorable).

Anyway, we’re not here to talk sci-fi. 

Right? Back on track.

Day two of going vegan – dairy and egg subs! Its not as hard as you think!

I could sit here and tell you all of the bad things dairy and eggs do to your body, but, really, that’s not my style. The resources list I wrote up yesterday covers it all pretty well, and, if you have questions, please ask!

My favourite dairy subsitutes:
Milk – So Delicious brand Coconut Milk I buy original. I’m not a big vanilla flavoured milk fan, and I thought the unsweetened was a little thin.
Yogurt – So Delicious brand Coconut Yogurt – this is wonderful. I love the texture, and all of the flavours
Ice cream – again, I go with So Delicious.
Cream Cheese – Tofutti Better than Cream Cheese – I have tried a few other vegan cream cheeses, and this, by far, is the best
I go with Tofutti for things like ice cream sandwiches (Tofutti Cuties) and sour cream too.
Cheese – There is no perfect vegan cheese. Sorry. However, of those I have tried, Daiya is the absolute best. It melts and it tastes great.

Egg substitutes:
This totally depends on what you want to do. 
In baked goods, I refer to this list on The PPK In addition to the things listed here, you can pick up EnerG Egg replacer. I’m not a huge fan of it – I can taste it in everything, but most people can’t. Its not expensive, don’t be afraid to play with it.

My first recipe of the month! The Bubble-up Enchilada:
My Weight Watchers friends have been raving about this recipe. I finally decided to veganize it.


Bubble Up Enchiladas
1 box seitan strips
1 (10 ounce) can green enchilada sauce
1 Cup tomato sauce (it sounds weird, but, trust me on this)
3/4 of these biscuits – Don’t bother cutting them into biscuit form, just drop chunks into the mixture
1 ΒΌ cups Daiya shredded cheese (1/4C mozzarella, 1C cheddar)
1 small can chopped green chilies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown seitan. Mix in enchilada sauce and tomato sauce. drop this biscuits (about TBL size) into the mixture. Then you just dump it all in a greased casserole and bake for 25 minutes. Take out of oven and sprinkle cheese on top. Bake an additional 10 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

  2. >Congratulations on getting through Day 2 of being vegan. It sounds like you did it very deliciously. I am right there with you on all the So Delicious coconut milk products. They're at the top of my delish list, too. Wait until you try their coconut mini ice cream sandwiches! They're incredible! Oh, and you won't believe Dr. Cow Tree Nut Cheeses and Nacho Mom's Ultimate Vegan Queso. They're crazy good!

Hopefully I stick with my schedule and continue to post daily this month! Thanks for the cheese tipsNichole – Thanks for the cheese tips!I rarely buy food online. I only tried Daiya because Whole Foods started carrying it. Maybe once I have a regular paycheck again, I'll start trying these other wonderful things.
