Hi everyone! Today's Vegan MoFo prompt is: Vegan Memories – What was your first vegan meal? Or the one you remember the most? I don't really remember what my first intentionally vegan meal was, but I do remember my first (failed) attempt at vegan mac & cheese. The recipe I'd found had called for way too much nutritional yeast; the final product was not appetizing to me as a new vegan. It was kinda discouraging, but thankfully by my first Vegan MoFo (November 2010), I'd discovered Daiya cheese; eventually, I learned to appreciate nutritional yeast again, and I've made some great mac & cheeses in the meantime. So tonight, in memory of my first vegan mac & cheese, I tried a new recipe from My cat loves Daiya!; I knew this one would be a success!
It turned out absolutely amazing; I seriously wish I'd had this recipe when I first went vegan! If you've been looking for a new mac & cheese recipe, be sure to give it a try! My only modification was that I used Chao (creamy original) slices because I couldn't find FYH American slices.
Here's a sleepy Buttons from earlier today...
