I mixed in 2/3 cup of cooked mixed veggies and a serving of Morningstar Chik’n strips I had leftover in the freezer that I wanted to get rid of. It turned into quite the interesting dish!
I am happy to say that even though it smelled weird, this “teese” tasted AWESOME! I liked it a lot better than the mac & chreese that I’d tried before (which is okay, but this was better).
The batch I made was big enough for lots of leftovers, including some I had with half a Jamaican Seitan sandwich I got at Ramsi’s on Friday night.
Thanks again, Chicago Soy Dairy! 🙂
Confession: I went through a period where I HATED pizza!
It’s one of my husband’s favorite foods but it always left me feeling bloated and miserable, thanks to what I later learned was my intolerance for dairy and my general dislike of the way my body chooses to digest meat.
Thankfully, when I decided to go vegan, I started to love pizza for probably the first time in my life since I felt good eating it!
I swapped out heavy meats for fresh veggies, greasy crusts for pitas, and when I’m in the mood for it, vegan cheese:
Chicago Soy Dairy company sent me this sample to try out and I decided to use it to make homemade pizza! Sometimes I go completely cheese-less but every now and then “teese” sounds really good 🙂
I topped a pita with pizza sauce, diced red onion, mushrooms, and grated vegan mozzarella cheese. This is what it looked like before going in to the oven:
Random question: do you find that you prefer white wines in the summertime and reds in the winter? I think it’s a hot/cold weather thing for me.
When the pizza was done it smelled delicious!
But it wasn’t as cheesy as Daiya, which melts a lot better and has a much more cheese-like taste and texture. But I would definitely call this one a close second.
Thanks Chicago Soy Dairy for the sample, I look forward to using it on a few more pizzas in the next couple of weeks!
How do you feel about pizza? What is your favorite topping?
Today has been an awesome day!
I got things started with some banana PB oatmeal, which wasn’t the original plan, but someone ate all the bread in the house 😉
Then I went grocery shopping for the week, which included a trip to Whole Foods. While I was there, I picked up an item I had never tried before.
But lately, I’ve started to miss a few “comfort foods” and I figured now was the perfect time to start experimenting with some new products. How awesome is it to see something labeled “vegan”? 🙂
For lunch, I made grilled “cheese”!
I also had a sweet potato with cinnamon and Smart Balance Light.
I picked up a bunch of other new things for this week, so stay tuned!
