So, my workplace had the honor of hosting the Vegan Roadie for cooking demonstrations today. He was a contestant in the “Brand with 10 Grand” promotional contest that we ran, and so we invited him to make a stop here on his tour. It’s kinda cool how it turned out that way!
His recipes du jour were Vegan Caesar Salad and Bowties in Garlic Cream Sauce. They were both very delicious! And they looked pretty easy to prepare. I’m no vegan, but I do enjoy many a meat- and dairy-less meal during the week, so I can definitely appreciate having some new recipes in my standard rotation. Dustin had a strong bent for chemical-less ingredients, i.e. clean ingredients. Real food. I’m always down with that!
Have you ever tried nutritional yeast before? I actually do have some on-hand at home because it’s actually has a great nutrition profile (excellent source of complete protein) and a really great cheese substitute. That was the main base of the “Parmesan” dressing and it had the same consistency and cheesy taste as parm. It’s a great salad, popcorn and casserole topping. You should try it! It’s not that hard to find in the store. I got mine at a nutrition supplement store, but they sell it right by the Parmesan cheese at the regular grocery store.
