>I got a coupon for a free tub of We Can’t Say It’s Cheese. So, I drove all the way to Whole Foods today to pick one up. I got the Cheddar Spread. Totally worth the trip.
For dinner, I was just going to eat soba noodles again, but, with this tub of not-cheese sitting in my fridge, waiting to be consumed, I had to make grilled cheese and tomato soup. It was awesome. The spread was a little nutty, it got really melty, and went perfectly with my soup.
Tomorrow, breakfast, cheesy tofu scramble. Nom!
This recipe is my favourite holiday side dish, and, it might be the dish I miss most from my omni days. This is the first year I’ll be making a vegan version.
Aunt Nicci’s Heavenly Potatoes:
6 medium potatoes, boiled whole until almost cooked
1 recipe Condensed Cream Soup Substitute (Original recipe calls for 1can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted, so I may add mushrooms to the cream soup recipe)
1/2C Earth Balance
1C Tofutti Better Than Sour Cream
1/3C chopped green onion
1 1/2C Cheddar Daiya
Grate potatoes and add remaining ingredients; mix well. Bake at 350* for 45 minutes.
>Today is just a roundup day. The only exciting food thing I did today wasn’t my own recipe. It came from The PPK in October. Its a recipe from Isa’s upcoming cookbook (which I cannot wait to get). It was the Miso Soba Stir Fry with Greens and Beans, and it rocked my socks. Its also probably the healthiest meal I’ve eaten in weeks. Instead of adzuki beans, I used a can of red kidney beans. I also used rainbow chard from my garden, instead of Swiss chard.
Thanksgiving is a week away. Panic is about to set in. I think I know what I’m going to be eating, and I think its going to include this stuff:
Field Roast Celebration Roast. This thing is so delicious. You should all do your best to try it sometime. (and, FYI, right now, Savemart is carrying it!)
Heavenly Potatoes, veganized. This is my aunt’s recipe, I’ll post it tomorrow.
Maple Yams (to-die-for) I’ll also post this recipe tomorrow
I’m making rolls with this great recipe from Colleen on VegWeb. Honestly, its the only yeasty bread recipe I have ever had success with.
Dessert – My sister is making (vegan) pecan pie – my favourite!, and I’m making Pumpkin Cheesecake with Candied Cranberries. Again. I made it last year, and it was a big hit.
I feel guilty – this was probably the laziest Vegan MoFo post ever. Tomorrow, I’ll be better. and I’ll give you lots of yummy recipes.
What are you eating for Thanksgiving?
