Chick-Fil-A copy cat but vegan

Image
  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

Vegan Noodle Soup





If you don't have a soup maker I really love mine. I bought it years ago it is a kettle with a blender in it where you just put the ingredients in press the timer and in 25-28 minutes you have soup. This recipe can be made in a pot but I made it in the soup maker.


 Ingredients 

Vegan Broth
1 Sweet Potato cut into pieces
half a white onion sliced
3 small carrots  (I was practicing with my spiralizer)
1 package smoked tofu
curry spice
pepper
rice noodles
additional water 
1 tsp olive oil


I had never used the carrot spiralizing tool before and I forgot I had carrots. I tried to use it on a sweet potato it didn't work so that is why this soup has carrots and sweet potato in it.

I found the soup maker works best if you use a little bit of fat in it which is why I added olive oil. Add the oil, onion, sweet potato, spices, broth and fill to the line with water.



Plug the soup maker in and select chunky for the type of soup. The alarm will sound in 28 minutes so you can go do something else. I used to come home from work put the soup on do a 25 minute workout and when the workout was done I would eat soup for dinner. I am trying to get into that routine but that is another blog post.



 I like smoked tofu crispy so I pan fried some of the pieces.


When the soup maker timer goes off add the rice noodles, non fried tofu, and carrots to the soup maker.

There is no short timer on the soup maker so put the lid back on set the soup maker to chunky. Set a manual timer for 3 minutes and unplug the soup maker after the 3 minutes is up.


I took the picture after I poured most of the broth into the bowl. After my bowl of soup I had noodles for the rest of the week.

Pour soup into a bowl and top with pan fried tofu. Enjoy.
