Some things just can't be veganized.
Take mac n' cheese, for example.
You can buy soy cheese, almond cheese, rice cheese. You can mix them all together in a bowl, and throw it in the nuker. But the end result? It tastes like cardboard.
I know. I've tried a million different ways to make vegan mac n' cheese.
Sure, there's the vegweb-certified recipe. That contains either nuts or soy butter, plus garlic, mustard powder, and a mountain of nutritional yeast. Usually the garlic or the mustard overpowers everything.
It ain't easy. And it ain't soy free.
Long ago, I mourned the loss of mac n' cheese from my vegan and lactose intolerant life. I waved goodbye from the dock as it set sail. I thought I'd never taste such lusciousness again...
GUESS WHAT happens when you mix...
You get Mama's Old School Mac n' Cheese!!!
This is no imitation Kraft Deluxe Dinner! This is Thanksgiving-style-rainy-day-in-the-middle-of-February-with-a-cup-of-hot-chocolate mac n' cheese. This is recipe-passed-the-fuck-down!
This kicks the bowl out of any Kraft Deluxe dinner any damn day. SERIOUSLY.
Eat it up! Eat it up! Eat it up!
