I know, I should be putting up new pictures of Svara, but I’ve been so lazy with the camera lately and I don’t have any (hanging head in shame).
But I do have a new favorite quick meal recipe that I thought I’d share.
In college I was a big fan of boxed macaroni and cheese. It was cheap (if you buy store brand), quick, and versatile. As I try not to eat much dairy anymore and this stuff is full of who knows what chemicals or other odd ingredients, I don’t eat it anymore (well, once every year or two I do, but my stomach is always sorry afterwards). I do enjoy a good vegan cheesy sauce, but it’s just not as easy as the boxed stuff, you know? cook noodles, toss in dry mix, butter, milk, eat!
So I was intrigued when I saw this recipe the other day. I whipped up a batch in my food processor and today I tried it for lunch. I cooked up some noodles (about a quarter of a pound) and tossed in a quarter cup of the mix, half a cup of water, and a dab of dairy free margarine (just for some extra creaminess). It was good! Of course it does not taste like the box stuff, but who wants something to taste like a box anyway? hehe. It was just as easy, tasty, and my tummy knows I ate something familiar instead of foreign. Two thumbs up!
If you give this a try make sure you blend those cashews and sunflower seeds up as much as possible! Mine was still a bit grainy. I’m sure I could blend the mix with the water before adding to the noodles, but that’s an extra step and when in need of a quick satisfying meal, who needs an extra step?
