Congratulations everyone! We made it through Monday! I know I’m not the only one who needs a little bit of positive motivation today, so I am linking up with Sara from Lake Shore Runner for her Tried it Tuesday. But before we get there, I want to mention that I am guest posting for Michele at The Paleo Running Momma! It was such an honor as Michele is one of the first bloggers I started reading a few years back! I discuss tips and tricks for gaining speed, and am sharing one of my favorite speed workouts, so head on over and check it out! Alright, now back to things I tried… Homemade Vegan Cheesey Rice!
So I have been investigating alternative options to cheese since I think dairy plays a huge role in my GI issues. So welcome vegan cheese. Four simple ingredients, and while it’s not my favorite Kraft Mac & Cheese cheese, it’s pretty good!
Mix ¾ cup unsweetened, original almond milk, 6 tbsp. nutritional yeast, 1 tbsp. paprika, and sea salt to taste. Whisk together and add to desired dish. I added it to Trader Joe’s organic rice cauliflower, but it would be great with pasta or quinoa.
I added the “cheese” to the frying pan and cooked it with the cauliflower rice. 5 minutes later, I had a pretty cheesey “rice”. Perfect comfort food : )
I promise it tastes a lot better than it looks! With minimal and simple ingredients, it is a quick, delicious, and filling meal!
What was the last meal you experimented with?
What’s your favorite comfort food? Kraft Mac & Cheese, I could and would still eat an entire box straight out of the pot!
