91/365 – Apr.1

I thought I’d try to veganize (is that even a word?) my Mac’n Cheese tonight. It turned out much better than anticipated! Although I must say, as someone who’s used to the kraft dinner style of Mac’n Cheese, this one didn’t have that dried cheese in a package kind of taste šŸ™‚ I had a regular box of Wal-mart brand Mac’n Chesse in the cupboard, so I cooked that up. I replaced the dried cheese with Daiya Cheddar style cheese (non-dairy, non-soy vegan cheese), which really does melt and stretch like real cheese (as the package suggests). I also replaced the regular hot dogs that I would normally cut up and mix in with some Tofurky (Italian style tofu sausage), these were also surprisingly good! I would say the texture is more like that of a hot dog than of a regular meat sausage, but that’s good for me because I don’t normally like sausage. Finally I mixed in some frozen peas, cut up some grape tomatoes on the side, and Ta-Daaa!! Fancy Vegan Mac’n Cheese šŸ™‚

Here are pictures of the packages for the Tofurky and the Daiya Cheese. Both are quite good, I’m thinking that the cheese would be better on a pizza than in my Mac’n Cheese though. All in all, both are good buys!

  1. I’m ashamed to say I actually love that dried cheese in a package taste.
    You probably already have, but if you haven’t, tempeh is an amazing meat substitute that goes with everything.

  2. That sure looks good! I’m hoping to try Daiya soon!
