Vegan Comfort Food

June 5, 2010

Hello readers!

Today I’m bringing you a simple yet delicious vegan dinner Caitlin and I shared a couple weeks ago: Mac ‘n’ Cheese ‘n’ Salad! Not the most complicated of meals, but some nights simpler is better. And these two dishes were far from bland and boring. Let’s check them out…

Mmm… Mac ‘n’ Cheese. Caitlin made this lovely little bowl using this recipe from Vegweb. Although it was not her personal favorite (she still prefers this Recipezaar recipe), I really liked it. Unlike other vegan macs I’ve tried, this Mac ‘n’ Cheese was not overwhelmingly nutritional-yeast-y, which is a definite plus in my book. The addition of green beans and the use of shells pasta only made it that much better. There was even a little bit of tofu mixed in! All in all, I enjoyed this a lot.

Along with the mac, we had some petite salads, filled up with kale, more green beans, shredded carrots, pumpkin seeds, and nutritional yeast. I haven’t been eating as many salads since getting to New York (remember, though, that I was eating a salad a day in Toronto), and it was definitely nice to have one again.

Although this wasn’t the craziest thing we’ve ever made in the kitchen, it was nice to enjoy such a simple, straightforward, and—most importantly—satisfying meal. Just goes to show that vegan cooking can be easy, cheesy, and pleasing! Check back soon to hear about more of our fun kitchen adventures!

Until we eat again,
