Chick-Fil-A copy cat but vegan

  I have been watching way to many copy cat YouTube videos lately. I have never even been to Chick-Fil-A but decided to make the sauce after I saw the recipe on Raphael Gomes channel. The only things in the sauce that are not already vegan were mayo and honey I have access to vegan substitutes.  I found the vegan honey didn’t taste like honey it’s less sweet and has a darker flavour like molasses. It’s good though. Recipe is simple mix ingredients in a jar I didn’t follow exact measurements. I then let it sit in the fridge for an hour.  That looks pretty close to the pictures I have seen of the sauce. It tasted pretty good if I make it again I will add more honey as it wasn’t sweet enough I didn’t account for the milder taste of vegan honey.  I live close to a no waste grocery store and they sell beyond tenders by the piece. I had waffle fries in my freezer and use my airfryer to heat the tenders and fries. The tenders are a little expensive so I didn’t want to experiment with doing an

Sweet Potato/Yam Toast

Lately my social media has shown some recipes for sweet potato toast. I am still loving the toaster I received from field agent last year I wanted to try this.



sweet potato/yam toast 

I peeled a yam as I wasn't sure if the skin would burn and I was prepared to make soup with my ends but I ended up being able to cut it into four slices without any left over.



Round 1  I put the smallest two slices in the toaster and put it on the frozen setting.

Round 2  I put it back on regular toast I should have put it on frozen again

Round 4 I put it on bagel and it was done.

At Round 2 I decided to put the other two slices in the toaster oven. I spread some ghee and salt on them and put it in the toaster oven for 10 minutes on toast. It took another 10 minutes on toast and then another 5 minutes on broil for these two be done.

I have been eating avocado toast for twenty years long before its popularity. I spread some cream cheese and the toaster slices and added the avocado. This was very good really tasted like bread toast. It takes 4 rounds in the toaster on frozen setting for two slices so not the fastest method but I could definitely make this while getting ready and have this for breakfast as it is just a matter of pressing the button to toast.


The toaster oven version tasted completely different it tasted like a baked sweet potato it was really sweet and more like dessert. It is really strange how the cooking method changes the taste completely.    I recommend using a toaster over the toaster oven even though it requires a little more labour.

And day two with a sweet potato this time I just cut it in half and put it i the toaster on frozen and dark 4 times. It was good but I like the texture of the yam better.
