Chloe’s Kitchen: Mac ‘N’ Cheese

Mac and Cheese

As you can probably tell, I love mac and cheese. Up until recently, I’ve been using the Mac and Cheeze recipe from Vegan Yum Yum, which I still love. But it’s still not quite there, in terms of authenticity. But this Vegan Mac ‘N’ Cheese recipe from Chloe’s Kitchen is the real deal. And, because it omits the soy sauce and miso, it’s more budget-friendly than the Vegan Yum Yum recipe. I like to bake mine as the recipe suggests, but it would be great served as a creamy dish. As usual, I like to serve blanched green beans on the side, and for this meal, I served a simple salad of mixed greens and vegan French dressing. I also used panko on top instead of regular bread crumbs for a little extra crunch.

Game Night Nachos

A platter full of nachos, good beer and a game of Phase 10 was what I originally had planned for this past Friday. Sadly, my car decided it didn’t need a front exhaust pipe on my way home from work and I had to spend my Friday evening waiting for a tow truck. So, we ended up making these nachos for our Sunday dinner, which was fine by me.

For these nachos, I used the cheezy sauce from Vegan Yum Yum’s Mac and Cheeze recipe, which is so versatile (it goes great on a baked potato with broccoli). On top of that, I layered seasoned black beans, chunky salsa, pickled jalapenos, chopped onion and diced avocado.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Vegan Food Happenings

Hey everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts. I’ve been cooking, just not posting. I don’t have any recipes to share, but I thought I’d share some pictures of a few dishes that I made these past few weeks.

Bok Choy Skillet Supper from Vegetarian Times

This dish was extremely easy to make and was really tasty. The only thing I would change is the bok choy. My husband and I found it kind of stringy. We’re big fans of swiss chard, so we might use that the next time we make the dish.

Almond Milk Latte and Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies from “Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar”

These breakfast cookies are really delicious and really filling. The recipe in the book also makes a ton of them, so, unless you want to freeze them, I would recommend cutting the recipe in half.

Baked Potato with Broccoli and Cheese

Sorry for the bad picture. My husband and I have recently become addicted to baked potatoes. They’re cheap and filling and very versatile. For this baked potato, I steamed some broccoli and made the cheesy sauce from the “Vegan Yum Yum” Mac and Cheese recipe. We served our potatoes with a Caesar salad, which we also found in the cookbook.

That’s all I have for now. Tomorrow, I’m planning on writing a post about our first CSA pickup. Hope everyone is well!
