Peas and Chreese

I had the best dinner last night!


First, I decided to try yet another version of Mama Pea’s roasted chickpeas.

This time I mixed in some Sweet Red Chili sauce (plus apple cider vinegar, olive oil and cumin).


I also tried another version of Mac & Chreese, which I made previously and I thought was “just okay.” I decided to try cheddar style this time!


To finish things off, I reheated some mixed veggies. Oh…my…goodness.


Everything was delicious. And this shells & chreese kicked butt! I mean, look at it. Perfect!


I just used water and a teaspoon of Smart Balance Light with the chreese sauce.

I hadn’t really missed cheese products since I went vegan in October, but I’ve been wanting so more variety lately.

And it is so nice to have things like grilled “cheese” and mac & “cheese” that totally fit into my diet.

  1. Roasted chickpeas with sweet chili Thai sauce is a great sounding combo! I’m going to have to add this to the menu for next week.

  2. Here is my best roasted chickpea recipe, and it is SO good! We have it all the time (it is really good to have as a munchie with a couple drinks, too! 😉

    Cooked garbanzos
    enough dijon mustard (grainy) to give a good coat on the garbanzos
    a few shakes of hot sauce (like Tabasco or similar)
    a splash of malt vinegar (to give it a little tang)
    several spoonfuls of nutritional yeast flakes (make a thick coating)
    Salt to taste

    bake at 400 for 20 minutes


  3. I still haven’t tried roasted chickpeas! They sound so good 🙂

  4. That mac and chreese doesn’t even look vegan! I bet I could convince my 8 year brother to try it. I’m going to have to hit up whole foods to check it out.

  5. Oh goodness…that mac n’ cheese looks really delicious!!!! have u ever tried Amy’s mac and cheese? if so, which one do you think is tastier?
