I'm not even going to touch that one! At least not in this post.....that's worthy of its own post.
Have you tried Daiya's new wedge cheeses?? OMG. I keep buying the Jack flavor because it's so good. I finally just picked up a cheddar flavor to try. But nothing will beat the Jack flavor. So good on crackers!
I recently got some new cookbooks:
Practically Raw by Amber Shea Crawley, Ani's 15-Day Fat Blast by Ani Phyo, and Let Them Eat Vegan by Dreena Burton.
I'll be working my way through those!
First, I tried a "Pina Colada" smoothie from Ani's book. My first time using coconut oil! I was very scared of it before. And actually, it was all white and everything before I opened it. Now...in the cupboard, it's totally clear. Is that what's supposed to happen or is there something wrong with it??
Anyway, the smoothie was pretty good, but a bit "sandy" due to the brown rice protein powder I used. Very filling though.
I also made "DJ's Hummus Salad Dressing" from Dreena Burton's book. SO GOOD!! I always liked hummus on my salad, so why not make a dressing out of it? I did leave out the extra oil though.
From Eat Vegan on $4 a Day, I made the "Easy Miso Dressing" and it was delicious. So easy and tasty! Again, I left out the extra oil. However, it didn't make very much...enough for my one huge salad :)
And from Hearty Vegan Meals for Monster Appetites, I made the "Sloppy Jo-Nis". I rarely use TVP, but did finally purchase some. They were really tasty! I cut down the amount of ketchup in the recipe (too much sugar) and added pureed/diced tomatoes. I also left out the steak sauce, as I didn't have any. I'll definitely make those again!
