One of this year's goals was to use my cookbooks more by selecting one cookbook and one recipe a week to tackle. I picked the book on the end to start it off.
The Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook This cookbook is 300+ pages of recipes that stretch the vegan food options further than just pasta with tomato sauce and salads.
After flipping through the cookbook and considering that I was craving some comfort food- I decided on Mac Daddy! This recipe is a vegan version of mac and cheese, obviously containing no cheese.
I made vegan mac and cheese once before last winter, but for the life of me I can't locate the recipe so I decided to give a new one a shot. Based on the ingredient list I knew this one would be different because it included tofu. I know many people eat tofu, but this was new for me!
I mixed, I boiled, I simmered, and then I combined everything together into a baking dish. Thirty minutes later, out came baked Mac Daddy!
Here's a close-up shot just in case you want a closer look at it.
So, now you're probably wondering- how was it? Honestly, I'd say it was just okay. It did have a similar look and texture to mac and cheese, but for me the taste just wasn't right. The ingredients for the "cheese" sauce called for tumeric and yellow mustard, which I think I would consider skipping if I make it again.
The good news is I have plenty of leftovers, which I'll eat during the week!
